taking a break from thumb twiddling....

to show you this....

This is the bottom of a leg of a pair of black denim jeans.  Found in a thrift store and, despite my having altogether too much in the way of denim, impossible to not bring home.  I 'see' a beautiful purse/bag lurking in this (and the other leg is identical, so I can make TWO!!). 


  1. You've got such a good eye for denim MA - this pair of jeans had your name on it!!!!

    Now I would have looked at them and thought about those 'flower power' days - but YOU saw a bag in the making!!!
    It will make a fabulous bag - now I will see jeans as "possibilities" when I spot them in the opshop - thank you!!! Just as well you and I aren't in the same town ha ha!!!

    Wishing you a JOY filled 2013 and thank you for being a part of my blogging journey in 2012.

  2. Yikes MA some people have all the luck -this will make a fabulous bag (or two).

  3. What a wonderful denim find at the thrift store. Can't wait to see what you create from it.

  4. WHOA! that is stunning--what a score!

  5. Wow! Wish I'd find something cool at a thrift store! My best do-dads come from my flea markets.


  6. Those were EXPENSIVE jeans when new; I remember seeing some similar in one of my catalogs~~loved the jeans, not the price!
    What a bargain you got!!! And can't wait to see the finished product either.


  7. thats what yorkshire folk would call a 'canny buy' .........nice one!

  8. Wow, they must have been in someone's closet since the disco days , good find :)


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
