bag 18 – claimed

Ok – I know this bag might seem crazy, but here’s the story. I saw this bag at Goodwill and I thought, WOW, that is some bag. I couldn’t come up with a reason to buy it, so I left it. Next time I went, sure enough, it was still there. (SHOCKER) I had a white elephant party to go to, and I thought THAT’S MY REASON!

Time for the party – and I couldn’t find the bag. It turned up a year later in the black hole that is my husband’s┬átrunk. I must have driven his car that day, and it got thrown in the back. That’s where I am with this giveaway – anything in my collection is fair game. If you have a white elephant party in your future, or if you love cats, this is your bag.

shiraleah vintage velvet beaded bag

Imageit’s sunday, so i went fancy again with this shiraleah velvet beaded bag with horn handles. this is another bag that i got at st. vincent de paul that is just so beautiful, i love to look at it hanging on my closet door. so when i chose it for today, i had no idea it could carry all of my stuff, plus water bottle and Godly Play teacher’s book. but it did, thank goodness. $4 – score!

then i wore it to A Midsummer Night’s Dream ballet at SCPA. an amazing show, with lots of talented students giving their best. the set was beautiful. i’m so glad j is getting a wonderful dance education there.

anyway, i’m off to burbank tomorrow, so i’ve got to go find some packable bags for the trip. praying that my flight is better than the last one a couple of weeks ago.
