.@VickiBatman ~ A Season of Magic author, Gerri Brousseau, with her beloved handbag #MFRWorg #RLFblog #fashion

Welcome to another handbag from the Season of Magic, a holiday anthology, from author Gerri Brousseau.

Handbag Monday


Gerri Brousseau resides in Connecticut with her pug, Mimi, and their cats, Harry and Louise. Besides writing, she enjoys cooking and spending time with her 2-year old grand-daughter. Gerri's greatest wish is to meet J.K. Rowling. 




Here's what Gerri has to say about her handbag: Although I'm more of a shoe person, I have to admit that this is one of my favorite little handbags. It’s a Dooney and Bourke. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I know it’s strictly a summer bag, but it’s so playful and really reflects my mindset of summer. I simply couldn’t resist it. 

I walked into the store and there it was. It was love at first sight. So taken was I by this instant attraction that I tried to ignore it. I meandered around and pretending to be interested in something else, but it kept calling to me. I put it on my arm and strolled around the shop for a while, you know, to get the feel of the bag. It was a match made in heaven. 

This little summer bag is a few years old, but it remains my favorite. Each spring, I take it out with eagerness, and each autumn, I put it away with a tinge of sadness and a promise to renew our relationship in the spring.

Wow, Gerri, sounds as if this is a handbag match made in heaven.




Gerri's story in Season of Magic is Yuletide Bride  - The Dowager Duchess’s decree that her grandson must marry before Twelfth Night or relinquish his title and fortune. Without any prospects and with only two weeks until Christmas, will Stuart Nelson find himself destitute or will he find The Yuletide Bride?

Intriguing--right?

Gerry, who wouldn't like to meet JK Rowling? That said, thanks for the excerpt and for the Monday handbag.

I see hundreds of bags each week on Etsy as I troll through the pages ... yet I look forward to guest bags and Vicki's collection here.

Thanks, this is a nice way to start my week.

Love the handbag and yes, I would love to meet JK Rowling. Like Florence says, Vicki always has interesting handbags and guests.

Gerri Brousseau said...

I admit that I am beginning to hunt for more and more unique handbags. Need to get a nice quirky winter one. Thanks for stopping by and thank you for leaving a comment.

Gerri,
The bag is adorable and if you figure out a way to meet JK Rowling, let me know!

Loved Yuletide Bride. It was such a fun story!

Gerri Brousseau said...

Thanks Bobbi. One day I may find the perfect handbag AND a way to meet JK. You never know what the future holds.

I love my leather bags, but have always made some interesting bags (both knitted and sewn(leather hobo bag) and still use them. The knitted ones are so lite to carry.

Hi, Florence! I appreciate you and coming by every Monday. I think handbags are great fun. (Psst, a fab one coming soon. heheh)

Thanks, Sylvia!

Hey, Gerri, we can feature your bags any time. VBG!

Cute bag!

Gerri Brousseau said...

One of the quirky things about this fun handbag is that it has a multicolored zipper. Vicki, when I find a cool winter bag, I'll let you know. Most of mine are just leather bags, but I'll let you know.
Thanks everyone for stopping by.

Hi, Gerri! Leather is welcome. OMG that has me in hysterics!!~!

Angela Adams said...

That looks like a bag made for the lunch and a New York show. Thanks for the post.

vicki batman said...

Hi, Angela! and it doesn't look too large either. Thanks for stopping.

Melissa Keir said...

I love that the bag looks like a great fit for over my shoulder. I hate the long bags and this one is so cute!

Gerri Brousseau said...

It does fit snugly right up under my arm. Another thing I like about it is there is a little loop inside with a clip on it for your car keys so they are always very easy to find! It is the perfect little summer bag. Thanks everyone for commenting.
