Reach into your Reticule




A reticule is a woman's small handbag; it originally was made of network and probably had a drawstring. (From French and Latin). You'll come across references to reticules in historical novels and elsewhere.

Reticule . . . I like that word. And now I know another definition. :)

Golden Eagle, thanks for stopping by! It's a pity we can't use it very often in conversation.

I can never find anything in my reticule. LOL

Dana, Thank you! Oh, you have to keep looking, and, if necessary, dump it upsidedown on the bed.
