the one where I show off my purse

I swear I’ll stop talking about this eventually. This is the most girly purse I have ever owned as far as shape goes – until now I’ve always carried a bag that can hold at least 4 books and ideally a laptop too. I feel a little odd carrying this one around because it doesn’t even have a shoulder strap (which I might see if I can fix at some point…). But it’s so pretty, and here are a couple of pictures. 😀

Just want to say that I had a productive lunch break today. I went to Wal-Greens to pick up some medicine, then ran to the Brewhouse where I had left my raincoat last night (God forbit I lose it!!). After that, ran home and took the covers off of the cushions on both the couch and the loveseat and stuck them in the washing machine because they desperately needed to be washed. That was about all that I had time to do, but it’s a lot more than I would have accomplished had I just gone home to take a nap! I’m looking forward to finishing cleaning up the living room once I get home. I kind of want to re-organize all my table tops and stuff too. We’ll see.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

    1. Ha! I wish! Maybe one day I’ll be that level of craftsman (craftswoman?). No, I bought it. But now I’ll be able to use it as inspiration for future projects….
