Yard sale finds and some flowers

A little dance purse made by Elgin American, complete with initials. It is a little black purse with a pocket holding a little comb and then the metal compact with powder and puff, still in tact. Blush and puff, still in tact. The lipstick is empty, but the mechanism still works. The mirror is broken and gone, but there is a compartment behind it for other stuff.
This little dance purse is made by F& B. It holds coins, a clip for bills, a mirrored compartment and then one more for other stuff.
The decoration on top is beautiful!
This little flapper purse is crocheted, wooden beads and silver metal (not sure what it is) This purse is completely in tact, no issues - amazing! Even the rings that the chain runs through have a pretty design on them.
This is the most unusual - all metal. The cap closes over the expanding top.
Isn't that the most unusual mechanism! The purse is in excellent condition except for the wear on the metal finish. Beautiful!
Hydrangeas and Poppies.

Poppies and Cicadas (ewww)!

Can't get this image to turn!!! You can see the Cicadas on the tree, they are 13 year Cicadas, they do no harm, these little guys were laid as eggs 13 years ago, now coming up out of the ground to mature and mate, lay eggs and die.
I know this picture is gross, but this is one coming out of his shell (molting), yes they have red eyes. The birds are feasting on these little critters.
Another image I uploaded wrong, sorry. Love this climbing rose bush.
Poppies, little ballerina dancing in the wind.
Look like crepe paper.
A whole troop of them. Have a great Sunday... go to church!
