On Wednesday over in JulieLand, Mrs. Moon Witch said:
"I love totes and bags and purses and carry-alls and satchels of every flavor and style."
Guess what? Me, too. So I decided to post pics of mine. Ooh, oh, oh, oh and pics of these cool containers I love.
Here is my messy peg thingy overfull with bags:
Here is the bag that I carry for a purse right now:
Here is a purse I bought several years ago that I only use for special occassions as I want to keep it nice:
It's hanging against my purple rag-rolled wall. It was designed by San Diego artist, Laurel Burch, who is now deceased. She's actually famous for these cats:
Here is a purse I made from a pair of my dad's old jeans after he died. I lined it with one of his old flannel shirts. On the front is a coffee cup tapestry that I wove when I thought I wanted to become a weaver. I didn't enjoy weaving but I still think that pieces someone has weaved with their own hands and creativity are magical.
Here are the cool containers opened. One holds my clothes pins, the other holds my essential oils. It smells really good when you open it.
The last thing I want to show you is the bookmark my brother gave me for xmas a few years ago. It's handmade by someone from one of the First Nations tribes but I'm not sure who or what tribe. I just love it.
So there you have it. Me and my love affair with bags, and containers. I'm usually a minimalist but I can't resist bags, containers, bookmarks and books.
My purse is becoming a little the worse for wear so I 'NEED' to find a new one soon!
Happy Friday y'all!!!!
