Little joys

This week I splurged and bought a new purse. Bag, technically. I wasn’t officially looking for one (though it was in the back of my mind that I needed a new one), but I ran across this brand while perusing the internet and just had to have one. I did a Google search and couldn’t find a bad word about them. So even though it was way more money than I probably should have spent on a bag, I went ahead and ordered it online. Then I was plagued with feelings of doubt – things online always look so much better than they do in person and inevitably I end up disappointed.

Well, it arrived yesterday in the mail and it’s wonderful! It’s ginormous! I knew it was “big” from the picures and dimensions given (it needed to be big enough to fit a binder and books for school – it’s just a bonus that it’s set up for knitting), but it’s even bigger than I thought, which is actually a good thing (assuming I don’t fill all the empty space with rocks – I don’t think my back would like lugging around that much weight).

Here’s a picture from the website (maybe I’ll be dorky and take a picture of my own this weekend, but right now it’s still sitting at home empty):

    Hope you are well. I am WAY behind in blog reading.


  2. Kathy,

    Sounds like fun!

    Yes, I know those caramel nut thingies are so bad! I love them. And I go by Walgreens nearly every day at work and have to resist buying them! Sorry for introducing them to you….

  3. Kelly,

    You are to be blamed. This post made me think I needed to find a new bag. I’ve started carrying a book with me, and all of my bags are either way to small or way to big or don’t hold right (I want messenger style, not something I have to hold in my hand). This lead to many websites. Nothing was right. Or if it was right, it was $150. Blah.

    THEN, I went to Etsy, which YOU introduced me to. I found a bag I ADORED. Of course, it was reserved for someone else. Read profile of artist. She does custom work. Less than 48 hours later…I have a bag, custom made for me! Well, it will be in the mail this week… but it’s done! And it’s mine, and it’s special, and I blame you for the money I spent. So there you go.

  4. A,

    I think you should send me a link of what this bag looks like. I’m totally interested.

    I carried my new bag today. It’s huge! But everything fit inside, schoolwork included, no problem. It was only slightly heavy.
