(Trigger Warning: death, illness)

As I've mentioned in limited detail elsewhere, 2014 has been a really rough year for me so far, due in no small part to the sheer number of very sudden, unexpected deaths in my family. My grandmother was one of them, passing from an aneurysm back in February.

Last week, my mom and my aunt went over to her house to clear out some things, in preparation to sell it. They grabbed a boatload of purses, including this little gem:

It's a wicker box-style purse, very very similar to the one Sophia carries around in The Golden Girls! It's not quite a dead ringer (the handles are different, as is the design around the front and back), but it's the closest match out of any I've seen available online! If I'm still relegated to walking around with a cane and large tinted glasses everywhere by the time Halloween rolls around, I think I've got a ready-made costume. :)
