Tuesday Buttie Pillars Tale

Good morning all...as you can see my nap was interrupted so I could pawticipate in this tale.
As you may recall, TOGM and Dad are older than dirt. I'm told way back in the olden days
early 1970's wooden purses were very chic.  My mom admired them in the store windows.
Dad said a light bulb went off in his head...yep he was gonna make one for my mom.
A little known fact is my Dad is very artistic and cre8tive!  He bought the wooden
purse and hardware at a craft shop.  Then he hand drew and painted all the 
buttie pillars!!  The little brown 1/2 moon drawings around the top and bottom
were made by tracing pennies.



Here is a collage.  All of the buttie pillars have little tiny sparkles too.
Dad made this 46 years ago in August 1970


I would like to thank my gal pal Princess Leah for teaching all of Blogville this most adorable term
Buttie Pillars!! 

PL this is for you and the lovely ladies in your life.

  4. What a beautiful purse! Your dad is most talented, Madi! Our gram decoupaged a couple of them years ago. She kept one and gave one to our mom, who has no clue where hers is hiding.

  6. Buttie Pillars....that's a stage between caterpillars and butterflies? Here I am trying to get an education, and you didn't expand on the definition. I will have to travel to the Princess's blog to find out maybe perhaps!!

    Love this purse. Heck, you could start the 'fad' all over again by using it...I bet it would catch on.

  35. ohhhhhhhhhh, This purse really brought back some memories... OLDEN days indeed, My Pop could be really crafty at times too. Being from Mississippi, he made a wooden purse with Ole Miss coins on it and I forget what all. I so wish I had a picture. It was mine for a while, then one of his sisters admired it so much, he asked/took it back and gave it to her. I'm sure at the time my feelings were fairly hurt. But still a memory,,,, Gotta wonder where it ended up..

    thanx for the memories and Yes we do have a mutual friend!!
