A Little Reward for Finding a Home for Thunderscotch

Last Sunday, I spotted this little dog running free in McCarren Park. With help from my brother and Lucy's owner, she found her way to my apartment. Of course, I gave her a name, Thunderscotch, and set about trying to find her owners if she had been lost or new owners if she was ditched. Thunderscotch spent nearly a week with me and VALENCIA. In addition to caring for her, I spread the word about her to everyone as well as various dog rescue groups. Thankfully, I found her a home with a sweet couple in the 'hood who have renamed the little dog, Junebug.

I did all of this because it was the right thing to do. I also know this has nothing to do with bags. So let's get back to bags, please consider supporting or rewarding my good deed by gifting me this great bag designed by one of my favorite artists - Nathalie Lete. Here's the link.

Just a thought! Back to bags tomorrow.

A Blast from the Past

This is a classic bag. It is a nylon Kate Spade bag. The color has faded a bit but is still a great shape. I think I will use it this week.

MUJI Storage Pouches

I heart these pouches; whenever I see them for sale I pick a few up. They are perfect for traveling. They are perfect keeping your receipts for a project. They are perfect for pens or other crafty supplies. They are inexpensive and last like forever.

As it says on the MoMa store website "These handy pouches are great for toiletries, school supplies, or other small gadgets, and are made of polypropylene."

Go out and get a few of these at either the MUJI store or a MoMa Stores near you.

The Real Bingo Bag

The cloth clutch didn't fit all my bingo supplies so this is the real (actual) bingo bag.

Why is this a Bingo Bag?

I love Bingo nearly as much as I love bags.

Another Type of Lady's Pride Bag

The company - Lady's Pride - was like the Kate Spade of the 1970s. Yet, another adorable bag they manufactured. Also my latest ebay win.

No Bag Sunday

It's shocking but there will be no bag today. My camera needs new batteries. Tomorrow, I will share the bag I actually used for Saturday's party. It is delightful and a nice blast of spring.

Future Ebay Win?

It has the Lady's Pride handles but a different style than the tote/clutch I have been collect. I hope I get to add this to my collection.

UPDATE: I didn't win it. It went for a little more than I wanted to spend. Better luck next time, right?
