Mama's got a brand new bag!!!

In all the chaos of the storm aftermath, I didn't post the most awesomest bag ever that arrived in the mail on Friday - with MY name on it! It was my AREtsy recycled swap from Punkinhead.

How did she know that I needed me a new purse? And how did she know I needed one that was both practical and cute as a button? I've been wearing it around town for the past few days, and I love it, love it, love it!

The long strap allows me to wear it across my chest, with the pouch resting right at my hip. The simple foldover flap makes it easy for me to quickly stash my keys, or easily reach in for my phone. Another benefit of the long strap is that I don't have to take it off when I sit down. I can just sit down with it still strapped across my chest, and just rest the little purse at my side. I'm really bad about walking off without my purse, so this is a huge benefit for me.

And if being practical wasn't good enough, it's cute to boot! It's recycled from a gray wool skirt. The flap has three pleats from the skirt, and it's embellished with lavender zig-zag stitching and stacked shell buttons. We've never met in person, but she nailed my style dead-on.

Can you tell I love my new bag? I think I'll call it my Punkinpurse.

Oh, yeah. Punkinpurse, for sure. I am so jealous! What am I saying? I should just go shop over at Punkin's place!
