day 42

I got this yellow pebbled leather convertible shoulder and handle bag by The Sak for Christmas for myself a couple of years ago. Sometimes certain people can give some strange gifts so I’ve learned to be prepared with a gift for myself I’m sure I’ll like. It’s called self care. And what could be better care than a yellow bag to brighten any day of the week?

day 15

A nice Vera Bradley bag from Goodwill. I like their bags they have three or four colors only. This one has an adjustable strap, two front pockets and and a back zipper pocket, and a spacious interior. I was doing to the Art Museum with my youth group today, so I needed something light.

day 10 for real

I found this bag at Goodwill a few years ago when cognac was the color to have. I could not believe the quality of the leather when i touched it. You know i love pebbled leather but this is smooth, rich, quality leather and craftspersonship. It was $8 or $12, something like that – and it was quickly purchased before someone figured out they should have charged more for a vintage Nordstrom leather bag/tote. Yes, it converts to a tote. This color goes with everything. I really enjoy this bag.

Today’s bag is a white Nine West shoulder bag with a frame bag in the middle with two outer zipper sections. A small scuff on the back is easily buffed away with polish. Modeled by Jaiya.

I hope you enjoyed my Lenten giveaway. I sure did, even though this Lent was yet again atypical. I wish you peace and blessings for the coming Easter season.

Please look back through the posts and see if there’s anything unclaimed that you’d like to have. Currently available are bags 6, 7, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 39 and 40. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested in any of those bags. They will go to Dress for Success next week.

Starting tomorrow I’ll be using a different bag every day for the 50 days of Easter. Looking back on the bags I’ve done through the last five years, many that I used in the 50 days of Easter end up in the 40 days of Lent giveaway. I’m excited to see how this year goes, and what more I’ll learn through this process. Happy Easter!

bag 31 – claimed

Yet another attempt¬†to replace¬†my stolen Calvin Klein bag. I really love the pebbled leather and modern hardware. But it’s a bit too small for me and too heavy to be as small as it is. don’t mind me, i’m an old lady with lots of physical maladies. It’s a beautiful purse, free to a good home. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 31.

bag 30

This is a stylish bag perfect for situations where you need to travel light. The middle section holds stuff and the two outer sections have their own zipper compartments. This one is by Travelon. I always rescue these and baggalinis because they’re moderately expensive, even in TJ Maxx. Email me with bag 30 at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’d like it.
