Bag lady

My friend Cathy is a bag lady. I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course. It's just that she has an eye for them, whereas I am useless with bags. Cathy has many bags and they are fun and bright, whereas I go for the safe (and dull) practical black kind. I also only have one bag at a time and I use it until it falls to pieces and I have to buy another, er black, bag. My current bag began disintegrating about 6 months ago and I have been putting off buying another as I am such a bag wimp. A couple of weeks ago I spent a morning in Winterthur and trailed round several shops, to no avail - too bright, too boring, too expensive, not big enough, too big etc etc. Imagine my surprise, delight, relief when I came home to find Cathy's birthday present waiting for me - yes, you've guessed it,
It's from Carpisa and it's perfect! New bag, new bag charm.....
I'd love to be able to say I made this myself but....I went to the bead shop to choose some beads, but found this all ready made instead.... Have a great weekend!

Oh! Happy belated birthday!
This new bag is hardly black :D But it has such a cute theme -- travel :)

I, on the other hand, have gone to the other side... All my bags were outrageously colourful and wild. Almost like a flick of the switch, I woke up one morning and decided I should be carrying bags *my* age :D

This is lovely, great colours and design! I checked out the Carpisa website, they have some really nice things! Glad you were spoilt on your birthday!

Carpisa always has some really fun beach bags and totes! I always pop in when I visit my friends in Italy.
