The Catcher



Warm browns with a mild, slightly turquoise-y accents. Fresh but not too cheeky, your "Catcher" is a perfect catch-all.
I have really got to send a "Thank you" note to whoever brought those perfectly edible brown upholstery remnants to the thrift shop. I've gobbled up every morsel of it now.





This bag is special. It has a front AND a back. That's handy because your stuff won't fall out the back just after you shoved it into the front.
(I never made that promise for that crazy $500.00 bag, now did I?!)
Don't you love the shed behind the bag? You can't purchase it because those funds wouldn't go to Darfur. My talented husband built that shed with his bare hands. Don't let it distract you....
.....Back to the bag.....
You know, in the eighties blue and brown didn't go together. Red and purple did. And we could tease back in those days, now they have rules about bullying. But maybe those rules still don't really apply to what one does with one's hair.
Right. The bag.

Well--- LOOK AT IT!!
It's gorgeous with all those funky three-sided bits on it; all confidently triangular in a square pegged world.
The brown background has a really soft pile look to it that I hope you can appreciate from the photos.
Don't drop the ball on this one, folks. The weekend is here, and there is a soccer tournament for my kids. There will not be a bag posted for Saturday or Sunday for sure, so don't STEE-RIKE OUT!
Newbies: Highest bidder at 6:00 pm central standard time (as posted by blogger) gets the Catcher.
If fifteen of you manage to publish your comment on the stroke of 6:00 it will go to the highest number. Either that, or I'll put up a mud pit in the backyard, hand out bikinis, and sell tickets for people to come out and watch the fight.

You guys can have the bag, I'm in for the bikini show in my backyard. I'll be the guy with the camera.

$60...I'm a little modest, so can I wear a one-piece as long as it shows cleavage?

Ahh...the way to get a bag if you don't already have one? Send lots of $$ to Darfur!

$90 - I am afraid I am out for the rest of the day and I'll hope my bid stands. I also hope the bag brings in the money it deserves...

Heart broken.

Please make another brown and blue (or pink) soft-looking yet classy bag Joyce. Next time, I'll hire a tech savy teenager to monitor the cut off time to secure my purchase.
