day 46

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

day 43

This Avorio hobo made in Italy was hanging at the Mt. Washington goodwill for $8. I almost injured myself snatching it from the rack. Those days are long gone, un/fortunately. Here’s more about it. Pebbled leather, neutral color, adjustble strap – and a black hole.

This year is a little more… at home. Yeah, that’s my foot and one of my New Balance lightweight runners. The goal here is to get a photo each day and sometimes that photo is more real than I’d like, but that’s ok – welcome to my life.

day 42

Linda Pelle bag that I don’t use as much as I would because it’s too heavy. But I can’t part ith it because it’s got so many of my favorite qualities: soft, pebbled, perforated leather; bushed silver hardware, butter zipper. Here’s a bit more about it from the past. I did enjoy carrying it, but – it’s heavy. I have a cervical (back) issue where I really shouldn’t carry these gorgeous bags. I even took off the strap!

day 17

Couldn’t give up my Banana Republic tote so I reached in the bin with smaller bags and found this Miu Miu bag to carry inside of the tote. This one has lots of aspects to check to see if it’s real.

If it’s a fake, they worked HARD.

day 7

My favorite Fossil. Phone in front left zipper pouch. Keys in right snap pouch. A place for everything and it fits my water bottle and magazines. Pebbled leather and whip stitching. Love it.

The Sak makes another appearance in this crossbody pebbled leather bag with whipstitching. Small but rounded, so it holds a lot. There’s the central interior, and then the flap has a zipper which opens to a full pocket with patterned lining. Excellent for travel or other situations where you want to keep some items handy and some items close but safe. I’ve had this a while and used it lots, but I have other pebbled leather bags, and I have a gold one exactly like this one. Both from the thrift store although I saw them at TJ Maxx and almost bought one there but held out.

Today we’re coming to you from my office at Forward Movement. Yes that’s a Bishop Curry bobblehead staying protected from the elements along with other toys and manipulatives.

bag 30 – claimed


There used to be a TJ Maxx on Colerain that I would go to during lunch sometimes when i was a librarian at the North Central Regional Library in Cincinnati. That TJ had some great bags. In those days, and for many years, the bag section was the first stop upon entering TJ Maxx. Now, I rarely visit that area.

Anyway, I bought this Tignanello structured hobo around 20 or so years ago, and it’s still in great shape. I used it a lot because it fits 9″x12″ folders and water bottles and all kinds of stuff. Vintage Tignanello is nothing like the #@!& you find now.
