Mini-ostrich

January 25th, 2009

My husband played in a weekend golf tournament a few years ago and at the big dinner, there was a party favor for the wives. The men had received all kinds of deluxe swag, so I was curious to see what was in the small box.

This was it–some of the wives adored this little purse made in Italy out of ostrich leather.
It’s 3 1/2 inches by 2 inches—and I can’t imagine carrying anything this small. So I was kind of disappointed, but I got over it.

The next year my husband played in the same tournament. I had given away my party favor, and figured next time they’d come up with something better for the wives.
So guess what I got. The same bag. Same color. Maybe it was even the same ostrich.

    Hello Darryle,

    I have a 7 year old daughter and I think this would make a great little jewelry box for her. I would love to have this and it is the perfect color for her.

    Hi Darryle,
    I would love that cute little purse. I have some purple UGG’s and I think it would go great with them. Purple is my favorite color and I like carrying small purses. Thank you Kanani

    That’s ok if it’s bright pink. I really think it’s so cute. I like the size and the shape. That means I’ll have to find some UGG’s to match it now. I’m all about matching. Thanks Kanani

    The little purse won’t match Kanani’s purple uggs, but she
    has a little dog with a bright pink jacket, they would look
    adorable togther. It’s all about little and cute.!!

    My vote goes to Kanani Brown who has always liked little purses. She amazingly can travel around the world and yet can pack enough money, credit cards, id cards, hair brush and make-up in the neatest fashion in the smallest of purses. This would fit her just perfect.

    Another vote for Kanani, If anyone can pull off carrying this little bag it would be Kanani. Even though its not purple I know she would love it!! Plus she can use it to wack her mother for not meeting you on time :)

    Kanani must be adorned with this bag. She has the attitude and the look to be the perfect fit!

    While I thought it’s a cute idea as a jewelry box for Tammy’s daughter, I think ostrich leather is a grown-up kind of thing, and obviously Kanani wants it, so….she’ll get it…picture to follow.

    Uh-oh. I feel obligated to say that this tiny little ostrich is bright pink. Not purple. This reminds me of what happened with a bag that looked gray but was really black. Obviously computers aren’t perfect. Neither am I.
