bag 9

If there’s a bag giveaway, you can be sure that there will be a few by the sak. I really love this brand for the quality and for the linings – they’re usually colorful and fun. This small/medium crossbody bag is no exception with soft pebbled leather, brass hardware, adjustable strap, and sky blue lining. I also like the braided zipper pull and organized interior. Got this one thrifting at the St. Vincent de Paul. The sak also makes coated cotton bags with wild designs, and my favorite one is what I call the peace bag. Lots of bags have peace signs but this one actually has the word peace with lots of birds and other whimsical images. I also have a the sak wallet that I got at Goodwill for $4 several years ago and it’s still in excellent shape.

The other thing I really love about the sak, in general, is that they don’t use capital letters for their logo sometimes. They are also very socially and environmentally conscious and care about people around the world. Check our their vision here.

bag 1 – claimed

Greetings in the name of the one who Lent is all about. I’m entering into another season of self-examination by giving away bags from my not-so-large-anymore collection.

This smallish pebbled leather bag was rescued from the Saint Vincent de Paul on Este in Cincinnati. It’s a no-name bag with lots of beautiful details – two tassels in front which are part of the toggle closure; another toggle closure from the sides; and a detachable suede zipper pouch made from the same suede that lines the bag. It also has four feet so the bottom leather won’t touch the ground. The lilac color will add a nice pop to your spring wardrobe. It’s a really well-made bag – I wonder who it’s by? Maybe you can solve that mystery.

Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you would like to have this bag, no matter where you live. Delivery is part of my Lenten discipline. Please include the following: bag 1, your name, your address. Thanks! Follow this rule if you would like the bag. No stopping me saying “hey Miriam, I’d like blah blah bag” or leaving a message on Facebook, my phone, or any other email than 50favbags@gmail.com. Thanks.

The reason it’s so late is that David had a car accident with Nia on the way to pick up Jaiya and attend a UCONN women’s basketball game. Everyone is mostly ok – Nia banged up her knee and so we went to the ER. David’s car will be ok. Thank you, God, that no one was seriously injured. We’ll get through it.

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.
