a random fact about me and purses.

a random fact about me is that i do love purses.
ever since i can remember i have loved purses.
i loved playing with my mom’s empty purses when i was a little girl.
she let me play with them – thank you mom.
playing with your purses is a special childhood memory!
thanks for not making them hands off for my play time. 🙂

i would open up mom’s empty purses and find little treasures.
stray pennies – a bandaid – a stray piece of gum – a pen.
and i would add my own little treasures as i played.
when i got older and earned allowance i bought my own purses.
there was a time in my 20’s and 30’s that i bought WAY too many purses.
darn near an addiction! hee-hee!!!

these days i’m super picky about the purse i use daily.
believe it or not i don’t own alot of purses anymore.
i have only a select few that meet my picky criteria.

with that said, i found this near perfect bag at kohls – on sale – even better!



now, every girl has her own individual purse criteria.
at least i think they do. 🙂
a criteria that might be totally different than another’s.

this little beauty meets most of my criteria for the perfect purse.
first and foremost it has to be cute. which i found this one to be so stinkin’ cute!
carrying a purse is pretty much wearing a purse, so yeah, it’s gotta be cute.
cute to me anyway. 🙂
these colors are my favorite colors these days. and look at how totally cute even the inside is! big plus to me!
a perfect purse is everytime i carry it i say GOSH I LIKE THIS!!
i say that when i carry this one!
it has to be soft and moveable and foldable and not too stiff.
this one meets that perfectly!
it can’t be hard and bulky. this one is not hard or bulky!
it has to be this basic size. not much smaller and not much bigger.
a perfect purse to me zips shut. this one does! yeah!
a perfect purse to me has an inside zipper. this one does.
and it must have a cell phone pocket. this one does. yeah!
it has to fit over my shoulder.
1 long handle would make this little beauty 100% perfect to me.
i can live with it being 97% perfect!

i know – totally random fact about me.
but did you know this random fact……
i have a secret dream of designing and making purses!
maybe i’ll do that when i grow up.       🙂 carrie

    And they have to smoosh around your hip bone just right!

    I think we should open a purse library where purse loving ladies can check out purses for a day or a week and then return them for another. Sort of a Rent-A-Center for handbags!

  4. This IS a very cute purse! 🙂
