Talking about handbags, I came across this in the church in Portese.
I hope I'm not offending anybody but I'm genuinely interested in what these handbag-type things are for. They all bear a beautifully embroidered M, I assume for Mary.
The statue was beautifully furnished and protected in a glass case.
Viv - what a talented lady!
Sandra - Imagine the weight of those bags with everything but the kitchen sink
I have one bag
A soft leather one with a small Scottie type dog that dangles from it
Expensive I believe
But it's great to carry the I pad which I use as a camara
At home I have others but never use them,I'm just not a bag person
I envy friends that carry a handbag with everything but the kitchen sink in it
I don't even carry a purse, my I phone is redundant, it's hardly ever charged, I can't recall ever making a phone call on it
I swear I was born to be royalty
I often dream I'm stranded somewhere without money or a working phone
But it hasn't persuaded me to carry either on a regular basis
The first photo is of the 2 bags I carry in the van. A bit battered now. "go with everything" colours.
The second one is a 'horsey" bag made for my grand-daughter and her riding stuff.
I make plain ones too, laptop and tablet covers, and also use store hessian bags and cover up the names with decorative stuff.
|jiwawa||That sounds very interesting Viv!|
|HermanHymer||Jean, I make my own handbags mostly and they do the job as well as any costing the price of a small house. I even style them according to my own needs and what I want to put in them. I agree with you wholeheartedly on this one.|
|jiwawa||Not if you don't recognise a 'good' one when you see it! My daughter n DIL despair of me ?|
