The Great Big Bag-A-Holic Swap - My Review

long while back I had came across a blog called Made by Petchy.  Petchy loves vintage fabric, takes beautiful pictures and has a darling three year son and makes her home in Norway.  Oh and she has even posted some yummy recipes on her blog!   Over the summer she hosted  a bag-purse-tote swap called The Great Big Bag-A-Holic Autumn Swap and I couldn't reply fast enough!  I was mixture of emotions - nervous, anxious, and more.....
I had made into the swap and was assigned my partner - June from Mesa, Arizona. I have had wonderful communications with her in the course of this swap.  I had sent June one of my favorite book purses I had already made - "Good Bye My Lady" -it is an eclectic shabby chic style.
When I recieved the package from June,  I was very excited - like a little girl on Christmas morning!  As soon as I was able to remove the tissue I said, "This IS me!"
Hearts!  It has wonderful colored Victorian inspired hearts on a black background with a pink ribbon twirling throughout.  The shape is roomy and stays nicely on my shoulder with easy access to my belongings inside. Thank you, June! 
Who knew that this Great Big Bag-A-Holic Swap would bring me a purse to match my lavender wallet! Thank you, Petchy!
