Now for the answer to yesterday's post about my bejewled items. They are purses designed by Judith Leiber. Many of her purses have been carried by first ladies on inauguration day, and several museums display them. These particular purses are at the Taubman Museum Of Art in Richmond, Virginia. The first picture is part of the museum from the outside front. And the next picture is the display they have specially made for these purses. It takes up one whole room. Each purse sits under it's own protective glass bubble, making it very hard for me to get good pictures. So many of you guessed it that there's really no need to list you. I cannot resist using the bible quote that my friend from MELANGE sent me about this post. I don't think these little purses would store very much, though. Maybe a lipstick, some cash and a driver's liscense would be all. Not being very practical, they are really all about sparkle, shine, and show. Nothing wrong with that once in a while. As long as one of the things in that purse is not your heart.
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6: 19,21
