bag 31

img_9331img_9330

A vintage leather tooled bag that reminds me of my mom that I said I’d never get rid of us up for grabs today. I’m tired, missed a day yesterday, and don’t feel like talking about how much my mom loved bags like this. Someone out there will love this bag and use it well.

You’d think it would be easy to stay on track, but no, the days blur together, and I’ll realize at 1am that I forgot to post. I even took these photos Friday morning because I was so excited to find one more bag I’d intended to give away.

That epic trip to the thrift store with Jaiya yielded this bag by the SAK. This one is one of their hand-crocheted bags, and Jaiya thought it was stunning. I have to agree. Cream with brown trim with the cutest little pockets on the front that I have no idea what you’d put in them other than change. Zipper pocket on the back, and a beautiful cotton print lining. I thought for a minute about keeping it, but NO!

I talked about the SAK in another post; visit their website about the hand-crochet process. This one is a bit heavier than others I’ve found – take care that you don’t snag it, which many in the thrift stores are. This one isn’t and looks brand new.

Fringe. I don’t always love it, but when I do, it’s likely on a bag. I bought this brown Raj fringe bag at TJ Maxx at least seventeen years ago, probably more. It’s a fun bag, but a bit of a black hole (meaning it’s cavernous with not a lot of organization inside) and I have another bag with fringe that I like a whole lot better. Even though I have loved this bag for years, it’s time to let it go.

I admit that I thought I would never get rid of this bag. I have a friend who really loves this bag and she said if I ever get rid of it to let her know. I was like, “yeah, girl, right… I’ll do that.” So I did that, but it’s up for grabs to you, too, because it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.

One of my Lenten learnings through the years is that we don’t need all of this stuff. The more I give away, the more I want to give away. The more bags I give away, the better I feel. Many of you practice generosity during Lent; I love seeing what you’re doing. I pray that I can continue to be this generous throughout the rest of the year.

bag 4 – claimed

This Michael Rome Designs bag was hanging around in the St. Vincent de Paul on Este last year, and I thought someone out there would like it. Brown leather is accented by rust moc croc leather with brass-colored hardware. This is one of those brands where I can’t find a website, but bags by this brand are for sale on eBay, Poshmark, etc. Supple leather, padded shoulder straps, and a large interior will let you be stylish as you haul all of your accouterments.

day 1

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!

Brown baggallini tote with more pockets and pouches than ever. It’s an explosion of organization. One large zipper pouch chills between two large outer snap-closure sections. No exterior pockets but you have plenty inside. Great for a weekend trip or daily life. This was a goodwill rescue at $5 $4.50 with my Senior discount.
