#Handbag Monday ~ welcomes author Hanna Martine who claims she has the greatest, unique, and most impractical handbag #MFRWorg #PlottingPrincesses

Hi, Everybody. Author Hanna Martine is at #Handbag Monday to show off The Greatest, Most Unique, Most Impractical Handbag She Owns

~Handbag Monday~

Let's see what Hanna has to say:

This is, hands down, my most favorite and most highly prized handbag. Literally every time I bring it out, someone comments about how much they love it, how unusual it is.



It's big, it's black, it's slouchy. It's nearly impossible to find anything in because of the distance between the handles and the bottom of the one big pouch inside. It's got weird black leather loops that catch on things. (Haven't ripped one yet! Oh God now I need to go knock on wood.) It doesn't stand up when you put it down anywhere; instead it flops over into an unsightly heap. But I love this thing. LOVE IT.

There is no manufacturer's tag, no label declaring its brand. The zipper has an elongated A on it, but it doesn't look familiar. I got it at a resale shop for $69. Go me.

Wow, Hanna! That is a great value and despite all the interesting things you said about the handbag, you still love it. It has style and would love to see it in person. 

Hanna's next contemporary romance, THE GOOD CHASE, releases December 2 from Berkley Sensation.

Here's a blurb from The Good Chase: Gleann, New Hampshire's annual Highland Games always deliver the best of Scottish culture—rowdiness, rugby, whiskey, and unexpected romance... Byrne went from poor beginnings to international high roller by using his charisma and wit, and holding fast to his dreams. A strong, independent woman like Shea, the country's preeminent whiskey expert, is exactly what he's looking for, only he has no idea how to prove he's more than his three-piece suits—especially when he's spent years doing just the opposite. But as Shea and Byrne battle old demons, they discover together that the best remedy for past pain is a good, stiff shot of present pleasure...

Thank you, Hanna, for being with me on Handbag Monday. And congratulations on The Good Chase.

I love that bag!!!! It is definitely something I would wear/use. :)

Suz said...

That bag is WAY COOL. Some of my fave bags are completely impractical--usually does to small size. I have some I can't even fit my phone in :( But I love them!

Vicki, maybe you should do a series on impractical but way cool bags--I'd fit right in.

Angela Adams said...

That is definitely my kind of handbag!

vicki batman said...

Hi, Chrys! That is so funny. This isn't a practical one for me. Goes to show our individual taste. lol

Hi, Suz! Another lover of this impractical bag. LOL I'm actually blogging about impractical handbags later this week.

Hi, Angela! Who knew this bag would be so much fun.

Melissa Keir said...

What a fun bag! I could certainly see myself with it, although it getting stuck on things would annoy me to no end.

Susan Day said...

It looks so tactile! I think I would enjoy using it but I need my things to be ordered so it might drive me nuts. I've just ordered my first new handbag in 2 and a half years. I'm so excited I could almost faint! I'll send pics when I get it :-)

Sylvia said...

I'm with Susan. I need things to easy to find or I get frustrated when I have to dig around in the bottom of the purse to find what I need. I love lots of inside pockets and zippers.

Hi, Melissa! I think this bag has fun style. I wonder if things would get stuck too, or rip.

Hi, Susan! a new handbag!!!! That is party time and can't wait to see your pictures. Hugs.

Hi, Sylvia! I found the perfect size doesn't require lots of pockets and zips. Which means garbage bags are out for me because I have to fish around for things. annoying.
