I don't know about you but I love having new and different bags to carry all the time. That is one reason I love the Mable and Oliver bags I've gotten from Junk Revolution. When I saw this great blue jean bag on Friday at a local thrift store (never been used), for $3, I just had to get it. And I knew exactly what I would do with it.
This is the after, it was simply a jean bag with that strip of brown strapping with the letters and numbers on it.
I went through all my goodies and trinkets and found just the right things to embellish it.
I love it and for $3, what a bargain. When I'm tired of it, I'll simply remove the trinkets and put them back in my goodie box.
I really wish I could find some more of these, this was such a fun and easy project.
And now for the Confession,
and a request for you to Fess Up.
This is a picture of the various bags I carry almost everyday with me.
Starting from Left to right, My Oliver Bag, used for work papers and files.
General sack bag, used to carry sold stuff back and forth for shipping.
Purse I just made, this goes everywhere
And the B&W bag is for when I go to one of my booth spaces, it has all my supplies.
And this is a pic of the "bags in waiting". These all have a specific use, or are waiting for a trip or Fall to be used. I just like them too much to shut them up in a closet.
What about you, How many bags do you carry on a regular basis.
Here's to being a Bag Lady.
Oh and One more thing, from the Strange but True File:
Look like anyone you know????
It's real : This Egyptian bust has become a popular attraction at Chicago's Field Museum because it's a spitting image of Michael Jackson, complete with a tweaked nose. It was carved between 1550-1050 BCE and depicts a woman. "Statue's a Dead Ringer for Jacko" (NBC Chicago)
