My mother and I didn’t have many things in common. She knew the man she would marry when she was only ten, while I could never stay in one place long enough to settle down. However, we shared two things–a love of storytelling and handbags.
We just loved purses of all shapes and sizes--big , small, clutches, over the shoulder, short handles—we could never figure out which ones we liked best. Any time she had extra money, she bought a new purse. Even though she kept getting rid of bags, she still left us with two large boxes when she moved from Colorado to a Phoenix nursing home.
Where she was always looking for something different or unique, I get stuck in ruts of the same style for years at a time. Back in the 70s, when I lived in San Diego, I kept buying big leather handbags from Mexico. Then it became Gucci bags in the 80s, everything from coin purses, to wallets to full size bags. That was followed by Coach in the 90s.
About five years ago, I fell in love with Marc Jacobs bags, and sometimes, I feel like I’m a walking ad for them. From extra large down to a small shoulder bag for evenings, I can’t seem to get break myself of them. And if they look alike, it’s because they are–just in different colors and sizes. I need a large one to carry my ipad. I like the fact that they have smaller zippered compartments for my makeup and little pockets for my phone and keys so I never lose them in the big bag. The smaller bag has a zippered flap with a large separate compartment where I can keep my writing notebooks and pens. (in case the urge to write strikes me at any time, and it does quite often so I always need a handy notebook).
Rebecca, there is that saying "buy one in every color!"
No one believes TV anchorwoman Kimberly delaGarza
didn’t kill her cheating ex-boyfriend,
and the only man who might help her is someone she once dumped!
