.@VickiBatman - finally I get my #birthday #handbag #MFRWorg #RLFblog #fashion

It's the truth. Handsome gave me my birthday present six weeks after my birthday. He couldn't find it in his closet--his closet isn't messy.
*Handbag Monday*
I spotted this lovely bag on ETSY and sent the link to Handsome's assistant. I knew she would make sure he bought it. But when my birthday rolled around, we were vacationing and we had a nice dinner to celebrate with a very delicious apple crisp topped with ice cream. 

When we returned home, he didn't give it to me. I would subtly ask and nothing. Finally, I demanded (yes, that sounds strong, but what the heck was up with him?). 

You know how I love needlepoint. This design resembles ribbons. It's flat and has compartments inside. I'm not fond of the shoulder bag handles and will probably change. I think adorable.

How did Handsome do?

And time to celebrate because I have TWO books out:

Blurb for Temporarily Employed: New job. New love. And murder. Desperate for cash to cover the basic necessities, Hattie Cooks takes a temporary job at Buy Rite insurance company where she uncovers an embezzling scam tied to the death of a former employee--the very one she replaced.

Buy Link for Temporarily Employed: Amazon

Blurb for Season of Magic featuring "Holiday Disaster": The week before Christmas and all is in disarray when a librarian experiences horrible plumbing issues and a Mr. Maintenance Man who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Clause. This Christmas is a disaster. 

Buy Link for Season of Magic: Amazon

Happy birthday to me? Did someone forget your birthday?

Hi, everyone and thank you for the six weeks later birthday wishes. Angela, On the Border has the best apple crisp!

I know, Chris, what was he thinking. He thinks it is funny.

Florence, I love looking at ETSY. I have a fun time there and at eBay, especially with needlepoint handbags.
