Coming soon....Handbag of the day


This afternoon I decided it was time to tidy up my handbag shelf and take them all down, empty them of anything, then re-stack them.

Now as you can see I have a few handbags (purses), in fact by a happy and total coincidence I have 41 and am 41 years young!! How perfect is that ladies ;-)

So I thought whilst I was tidying (Hubster - please note I do not mention clearing out) I would photograph my collection for you to see. This then led to another idea and one I am going to run with, as most of these bags have a story, particular purpose or I just love them to death because they're gorgeous.

So from tomorrow for 41 days I will have a 'Handbag of the Day' featurette, with a close-up piccie of each one and why I love it and need it. Not that I feel the need to justify you understand, but it will just be a fun thing to do.

I am also going to come up with a name that suits each bag and explain why....I would love you to join in.

Btw....whilst emptying the bags I found the following:

Approx' 1/2 box of Kleenex, 2 eyeshadow brushes, 2 glass cleaning cloths, Checkbook holder, 3 Biofreeze Gel sachets, 4 GasX strips, 2 combs, 1 toothbrush, 2 eyeshadows, 2007 diary, 2 pony bands, 1 pack sweeteners, 2 hairclips, 1 pr earrings, 1 new pr earrings (I forgot about), 1 ring, 1 pr winter gloves, 1 hairbrush, 2 mirrors, 8 packs of mini Kleenex, 2 flossers, 5 types of zero cal' candies, 1 face mister, 2 bottles painkillers, 1 lipbalm, 4 packs breath strips, 3 church service handouts, 3 school schedules, 19 tampax (won't be buying those for awhile!), 3 contact lens cases, 15 lipsticks/glosses, 18 pens (no wonder we have none in the house!), 6 nail files, 1 stain remover pen, 4 anti-bacterial handwashes, Weightwatchers calculator, 4 mascara's, 1 blemish stick, 2 nail balms, 1 foundation.

Quite a haul...have you cleaned out your bags recently?!

I love all of your purses, especially the red straw one in the back row. I'm looking forward to your stories.

You've reminded me, I really need to clean out my closet!

Thanks Lynne...I think this may just have turned into spring cleaning week for me. Because I can't fit those 15 lipsticks and glooses all in my drawer!!

What a great idea! I love it. I will be following the Saga des Sacs! There are a few I am particularily eager to hear the story behind. And, I love the burgundy alligator handbag in the back row! Classic!

Hubster said...

I love the handbag of the day idea, look forward to it! I'm impressed with all you found inside them..that's quite a stash of stuff!!

Love the new word REVISE. I had no idea it meant to study.

I think it's sad about all those dogs next door. BUT, I think before contacting the city or authorities, someone should approach her first, give her a warning and a chance to change the way she's handling things. It's seem like the right thing to do, in my opinion.

BritGal' Sarah said...

Rhea - my neighbour has been approached twice before by the people closest to her. Then she had a previous letter from the city and got rid of the dogs for awhile, but things have gone downhill yet again sadly.

Rhea said...

If your neighbor has been approached twice and had a letter from the city before, then that's enough warning, I agree! Time for more serious action. How sad. :o)
