A New Handbag!


I found the hand bag of my dreams last week! HOW cute IS this???!!!

Sadly the white one didn't last! Heidi was right! White was NOT the best colour! But it was cheap & it lasted long enough. That's all I ask for in a handbag. My attention span is FAR too short to actually WANT a bag that is going to last me longer than 6 months max!

My kids were well impressed. "Mum, you found a scrapbooking handbag!" Cami exclaimed, and so I have. Sassafrass Lass inspired I reckon...


It came with the weird rubber bear on the key chain (on the right) but I added the 2 on the left. I had a close-up shot too but Blogger seems to have just eaten it as it has disappeared! The blue rectangular thing is a mini-notebook. So sweet ;-D And Mr. Furry is a cute cat with a zip-up belly, perfect for holding one's parking change.

Before signing off I want to draw your attention to that psychedelic, multi-coloured zip! The fabric is also wipe-clean nylon-canvas & the inside is WHITE. Woo Hoo! No more scratching around in the black hole of Calcutta! As well as the lovely long zip-section on the outside there is also an identical zip-up section on the opposite side INSIDE. So my bag now looks perpetually tidy as I get to stuff all my unsorted stuff into the zip sections! Ingenious huh?!

Jokes aside, the bag is practical & a good size & with a brown base won't show the dirt quickly. Anyone local needing a new bag & despairing at the boring Woolworths black leather staples (not that they aren't classy - they just aren't my style or my price range) head over to "Bernice's Place" in Durban North Shopping Centre, at the top of Umhlanga Rocks Drive. They have recently started stocking handbags & have an awesome range at the mo. I could have come home with a few!

P.S. Kindly regurgitated by Blogger...




Oops...forgot about the little happy-cat-face key chain with the pink bead. In my opinion you can never have too many strange objects hanging from your handbag!

Your new baggie makes me feel happy. Sassafrass Lass written all over it.

It is seriously "oulik".
Too far away for me though...sigh! Guess I'll have to stick with plain and classic black.
Least it isn't Woolies black, but Honey black.

Awesome! I am not sure its my vibe but I am sure I would love the shop you are talking about ... I love unusual bags and this one fits the bill. Am a bit Woolies phobic.!

Absolutely perfect bag for you Helen - you can certainly pull it off!

Monique said...

Love your handbag!!! Definitely a scrappy one! (I want one too!) And I agree, much better than a white one!

Wow, well I never expected my handbag to get such a response! ;-D Glad you all like it...I am always on the lookout for interesting accessories. LOL Heidi! I suppose as long as the number of strange objects hanging off one's handbag is proportionately smaller than the bag itself you'll be okay! :-D
