Double the Trouble #handbag #MFRWauthor #RssosSister #shoes

Handbag Monday


Are you seeing double? I did when I spotted the brown bag on the right before Christmas.
Let me backtrack. Several years ago for my birthday, my sissie gifted me with the green bag. I looked at it in a store when shopping with her and dismissed it as not my style. But she must have seen me lingering over it and thought I would want it. Voila! Happy Birthday, Vicki!!
And I decided to carry this one and to my amazement received tons of compliments. I began to look at the handbag in a new light. It went with so many things and the green color had me thinking spring. 
The inside of the green bag is finished in a pink satin with a pocket. It's just big enough, I lose things sometimes. But it is big enough to hold a book--a good priority. The handles snap shut in a cool fashion, too. There is not maker's tag. I'm thinking a kit.
So fast forward to this year... While perusing my favorite stop to shop for needlepoint handbags, I found the brown one. I thought makes sense to buy it because I love the green one so much. The lining of this one is black--yup, easy to lose things. And the bottom isn't pinch pleated like the green one. Sadly, brown doesn't get the compliments like green. 
Now, I'm waiting for red and blue!

Hi, D'Ann!I like the green the best. I *think* I saw a blue one one time. Shoulda woulda coulda.

Hi, Cathy! Just a tad bigger because it isn't pleated at the bottom like the green one. And the green one has some special fancy stitching.
