Days 15 & 16

Sunday had something in common: I rested and did not leave the house. But I did go upstairs and choose a purse, this Fossil saddlebag. Leather and cotton burlap combine with whipstitching and a long, adjustable strap to make it either a cross body or a shoulder bag. It’s got a large interior pocket that holds my water bottle, a smaller pocket that holds a small magazine, like Prevention (which is what’s in there), and a large back pocket for a phone. I am a sucker for a saddlebag, and I’m glad to rediscover that this bag is NOT too small for all of my stuff. Got this one at Goodwill for $8.

Today was Forward Movement’s board meeting, so i had to “haul it all.” I needed a large, lightweight bag so i got this silver tote from Wilson’s Leather out of the closet for this occasion. It has two sections divided by a middle zippered compartment. I got this for $10 at Goodwill four years ago, and took it to California for – guess what – Forward Movement’s board meeting.

days 40-49

It’s the final countdown. Honestly I was so far from the blog, for a variety of reasons. I completely lost count. Fortunately, i was going though the process in every other way, taking pictures of the different bags each day. Even though i knew Pentecost was close, i still thought i had another week after this. So there’s lots of great bags that i planned to use but won’t make it this year. Cool!
