bag 21 – claimed

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.

bag 20 – claimed

img_9465How appropriate – it’s the halfway point of Lent, and I’m out of bags selected for the giveaway. The girls each chose a bag from my collection, and I had to choose one to give away. ARGH. I won’t show the other two that they selected, but they made it tough for me to decide to give up this Vera Bradley bag.

Good old Vera – I like this print because it’s simpler than many, and if you know me, you know I love black and white things. Wow, what a statement for a biracial person. Anyway, there’s lots of room inside, and the adjustable strap takes it from shoulder bag to crossbody. I got this one when there were a LOT of VBs at the Woodlawn Goodwill last year.

An old TJ Maxx favorite. Carla Mancini -bag I saw hanging there looking cool and different around 18 or 20 years ago.

day 45

I forget everything about this bag except that it’s a beautiful black hole. No organization. I think I got it at pier 1. Who knows. It’s a crossbody or shoulder bag.

day 29

Sunday was a long travel day so I brought this gray Travelon bag. It has equally sized main compartments on both sides, so using it for one day was rough as i couldn’t remember what was where unzip zip unzip zip. It’s got lots of great organization, and it’s lightweight.

Cool with me.

day 28

Last week, we got an email with a link to BTS concert info. You could only have a 4.5×6.5 bag unless it was clear, and I don’t have any clear bags. Good thing I got this concert bag last week on our Chicago field trip. We had a blast!
