New GiveAway to celebrate my 100th follower!

Well, I can't resist. I'm going to offer another lace/trim bundle after the 100th person becomes a follower of my blog. The Grow your Blog party was a huge success and so much fun. I've met lots of amazing and wonderful people from all over the world! So, I loved creating the bundle I just sent off, I want to do it again.
Please leave a comment, and if you aren't already a follower, become one! On February 28th, I'll choose a number and will send you a surprise bundle!
OKAY... In the mean time, I was thrilled yesterday to deliver this special order Gypsy Boho bag I created last week. It was a gift for a beautiful, stylish teenager, so the dimensions were scaled down a bit. 
It's all in purples. The laces were hand dyed but were way too glaringly purple. 
So I over-dyed them with coffee. It toned down the purple and I love the way it looks. 
(The bag is sitting on top of some others... there's no red or yellow in it.)
The front was looking kinda plain, so I made a shabby tassel flower 
with a pinback she can take off if she wants.
 Under the front flap.... two pockets.
 Here's the back with another pocket sized to hold an iPad or Kindle.
 I had fun with the lining and interior pockets. 
I used a lovely scrap of cotton with a Victorian lady print. 
The piece of lace worked sweetly over her head like a flowing Victorian hat.
Thanks for your comments....
Sweet blessings to you dear friends.
