Alleluia! Christ is risen! And now we celebrate this great news for the next fifty days.
My way of celebrating is to carry a different bag from my not-so-big collection every day for the fifty days of Easter. Today’s bag is a Isabella Fiore beaded leather bag that I got at Clothes Mentor a few years ago. The leather on this is gorgeous. The zipper is butter. The beading hooked me. It was $18. Please note that this bag is not up for grabs.
Today was full of my youth group, Jesus, my girls, David, my dad, sunflowers, Easter baskets with chocolate crosses and Squishmallows, and Howard Helvey snapping some pics of me making Korean hand hearts. I hope your day was great!
Let’s end with a bag I started with a few years ago in LA: a black Travelon shoulder bag. Yes the flashlight still works. Top photo is of the back pocket. The bottom photo is of the inside. Two small zipper pockets on the front give you a place for everything.
I remember this trip well. In April of 2013, the board and some staff went to several locations and talked to a pasionate laywoman named Nancy Frausto. It was my first time back in the area in many years. I visited some thrift stores one day and had a really great time. One of the stores sold items preiously used on TV shows. I got a few pieces of jewelry there.
If you would like bag 40 or any other unclaimed bag, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org before Tuesday, April 23.

This Ogio backpack was at the St. Vincent de Paul on Este just hanging around waiting to be rescued. It’s a great backpack with padded straps and exterior cupholders. Those are backpack musts for me – and I need two cupholders. This is in pristine condition. If you’re in touch with yourself the ESPN W will only encourage you. Yes, Eric Carle’s Very Busy Spider hangs in my office.
Vera makes her final appearance this year with this backpack that was donated to me by a person who gifted a bag back to me that she got from the blog in the past. While I don’t typically take donations, I couldn’t pass up the chance to offer this bright backpack with adjustable straps and a zipper pocket outside and small pouch inside.
Ok so the guys out there don’t feel neglected, here’s a computer briefcase by Incase. Room for your laptop, cords, headphones, and lots of other papers/magazines/small books and other items of that ilk. Large zip pocket in front and a little phone or key pouch on the back. A couple of little marks on the front won’t prevent you from carrying your stuff stylishly. Dawn or oxyclean will likely solve it.
