I'm not much of a girly girl most of my handbags are simple and functional, my favourite bags are probably the two men's leather satchels that I have had forever or so it feels anyway. For the last few weeks I have been using a book bag/shopping bag I got in the sale at American Eagle Outfitters last April. I bought it on my birthday with a larger red satchel/man bag as my present. Why am I going on about bags? Well A Thrifty Mrs blogged about her's yesterday and as H is having a lie down on my bed watching cartoons I thought I would work on a quick blog post while I drink a cup of tea. Yes really I have a cup of tea.
First there is the vintage flowery purse it holds all my precious pennies and paper..and occasionally random buttons too. I found that purse in a thrift shop in Railroad Square in Santa Rosa while shopping with Apron Thrift Girl a few years ago. It's lived in my various bags ever since.
A little dusky pink leather card holder it was ridiculously cheap in T.K. Max and I had to have it to hold a random assortment of credit and store cards.
A few of my new moo cards in case I run into anyone to swap with or anyone that enquires what do I do all day.
Ipod and headphones. I can't walk without my headphones on listening to whatever music I'm currently obsessed with.
House keys with a little torch/flashlight.
Notebook for doodling and writing plus a pen and pencil to do said writing.
A silver fruit knife that my dad gave to me.
A birdy pouch that most of the small junk fits into. I bought the pouch in the shop at the end of the Seattle Underground tour.
That's about it for my handbag though there are a few things not in there. I quite often bring a book with me where ever I go but I just started reading A Game of Thrones yesterday and I'm not lugging that house brick with me everywhere. Also Matt has a tendency to give me his wallet, keys and whatever else he doesn't want to carry for himself. And I often carry snacks or the DSi for Harrison.
So what's in your bag?
the two badges on the outside of my bag.
A manga badge and a Serenity quote I typed.
