We really didn’t expect to be back this quickly with another installment, but the speedy response is so delightful, we couldn’t wait to share. For your enjoyment and sleuthing – isn’t it fun to envision the owners? – three more Purse Project photos.

Kristie of Little Rock was the first to share, sending us her "versatile  taupe bag" lined with "a lovely feather-patterned fabric." The mother of one, Kristie is a TANF Quality Assurance Program Monitor.

So there you have it: Three more lovely photos that tell stories about the women who carry the bags.

If you’d like to be part of the project – and we’d love for you to join in – please send a clear, medium resolution photo to essepursemuseum@gmail.com with the subject line “ESSE Purse Project.” Make sure the photo includes your purse and its contents artfully displayed (feel free to censor/omit embarrassing or identifying contents).

Please specify whether you want to share your full name, first name, city – or some other category such as age, job title, mother of three. But if you want to be totally anonymous, that’s fine, too. Please also include this statement:  “I give The ESSEntial Blog full permission to use this photo.”

Until next time …
