~~ A Neat Gizmo~~

This is the neatest gizmo......it's one of my birthday gifts from my SIL , Carolyn, who lives in Texas. Do you know what it is? Have you ever seen one before? Maybe you even have one. Let me give you a couple of clues......I come with my own little carrying pouch, I love to hang around...but I'm very useful. Any ideas??? I'm a purse hook. This is the neatest doo-dad and I love it. No more setting your purse on the floor ...you turn the ornament to rest on the table....then turn the hook to hang your purse on it and it just balances itself. It's so neat you can take it anywhere....
This little treasure goes out to breakfast.....
even to high tea...plus to the.....

Crab Shack, a neat restaurant where they steam huge pots of crab, corn and red potatoes, then they dumb the pot on the table and you just start cracking the crab open and eat away...delicious, but very messy.
I use my little hook all the time. Everywhere I go someone wants to know what it is and where they can get one. I tell them mine is from Texas...but just to keep an eye out for one. I know you'll find one. Do you have a purse hook??? Hugs, Linda

That is a very clever idea! I usually end up holding my purse on my lap, because I refuse to set it on the floor (ick!)
I will keep my eye out for one of these neat "gizmos".

HI Linda..Oh the purse holder is a neat gift(:)
I know that store was way ''out there'' spendy I mean and lovely at the same time..I bet it was filled with a million dollars or more of inventory.. My sis said JZ ROSE the owner was a famous spiritual Channelor??
I did find afew items at a Country store.. will post them next time (:) hugs Patty

I do have one of those little purse holders! Used it Saturday when we took the baby boy and his bride out to dinner! Mine was a Christmas gift last year. The Container Store had them with their stocking stuffers one year and I've seen them in little gift shops here and there.

How very clever! I do not like to place my purse on the floor either. I wish we had a restaurant like the crab shack! Sounds delicious! Have a great weekend, blessings,Kathleen

What a clever item! I would love one of those! I absolutely detest putting my purse on the floor. I can remember my mother telling me that there was an old wives tale, that putting your purse on the floor was bad because it meant your money wouldn't last as long. lol

Well you showed me something new. and a great idea too.

HI Linda!
That is the cutest thing ever! I have never seen one before. And I hate sitting my handbag on the floor or on the back of my chair. That is the solution isn't it?? A VERY nice gift. You can tell your SIL it is a bloggy hit!!
Hugs, Sherry

Hi Linda, A purse hook, how unique! I have never seen these before, every woman should own one! ha,ha I could just eat some crab, havnt had it in years, dad always brought crap claws home.....and we would have more fun trying to get the meat! It is the Twilight series I am reading, they seem quite fun.....and I can agree with all about Edward , ha,ha and it seems a lot of readers are taken with the series.... Yes I am wearing a costume, a party is a first for me! Do you remember Samantha from bewitched? I am trying to create her witchy outfit,hat cloak...ive also got the fake eyelashes! lol

I don't have one Linda but I have seen them around...very convenient because a lot of times there is no place to put your purse.

Nancy said...

Than is so neat, and I would never have guessed what it was. Great gift. I never set my purse on the floor after a thing went around online about all the germs. Yuk.

Joy said...

What a neat gizmo...I hate setting my purse down in public places.

Betty said...

Yes, I do know what it is...I bought two years ago not knowing then what they were....they are wonderful to keep purses clean....

Thanks for dropping in to visit with me and commenting on the gifts from Marion and John...Betty

I have heard of them and it's one thing I would love to have. I have Vera Bradley Purses, so I hate putting them on the ground.
