Out with the old

Have you ever seen those funny photos in magazines where they have 2 photos side-by-side and you are supposed to find the 7 things that are different- (even though they look almost identical).

I have one for you……. Can you tell me what the difference is between picture ONE?

 and picture TWO????

Give up????? It's this beautiful and unique bag….. received from Michelle Lizcano (I like orange too).  I would start to sound like a Thesaurus if I even got started with all the things I LOVE about my new bag-  it's versatile and the fabric on the outside is this heathered grey and yet not "just plain grey" (I love fabrics like that), the many, many details, and the adjustable handle and…….well, let's just say I'm not the only one that had rave reviews, check out this list of accolades……

My new bag. The hardware holding on the handles comes on and off like a dream.

My "stuff" in my new bag (I was bowled over by the details ,and the colors, and the modern organic lines of this very beautiful bag. ) I have seen this new fabric on line but hadn't yet purchased any. It's beautiful and playful and perfect for me. (I love this color yellow).

Oh, and if the bag were not enough,  I did get my goodie bag filled with goodies (The dog didn't come in the mail), she's mine.
 The gorgeous bag was filled with "spicy" colored fabrics, many which are new to me and a charm pack of the new Lotta Jansdotter Echo fabric and a shorter handle so I can do a presto- chango with my cross body bag and make it into a hip folded-over going-out bag.

The "back/front" of my bag with beautiful hand stitching

close-up of the hand stitching, the grey against the aspen- so beautiful. See what I mean about the fabric- grey, but not only grey- 
So, this bag is mine.  I am truly grateful that, someone I didn't know, but hope to now know better (we are western "neighbors" so-to-speak), would be able to figure me out just from what I've commented on (am I revealing too much???- are you a mind reader????). Michelle, this beautiful bag is more me than you can possibly know; NO WAIT, you do know- you nailed it!! If this bag could be bought, I'd buy several!!! I LOVE cross-body bags. I NEED pockets to put the few things I do carry in their places. I love to travel, so being able to take one bag that can fit what I need, yet chameleon into an almost totally different bag to take out is MORE than perfect. The colors and design are timeless and traverse any season or occasion that I could ever imagine. It's not too big, and not too small…'s PERECT, and I am very, very thankful that it found it's way to my home.


  1. awesome bag!, you are a lucky girl!

  2. That IS an awesome bag, lucky you! Beautiful doxie, too!

  3. Oh wow, that bag is fabulous, I can see why you're overjoyed with it!

  4. Lucky you, it is truly beautiful!


If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
