The Chubby Chrysanthemum





It's not really a chubby chrysanthemum. It's just that "chubby" comes right after "chrysanthemum" in the children's illustrated dictionary, and it's just sorta got a ring!
Yup- those are the edges of pillow cases that you're going to put your all important lipstick and grocery store flyers into.
This bag is kind of peaceful, and soothing. The way I wish some days would go. And with this bag..... Oh. Right. I was not going to lie to you. Darnit.
Purdy; aint she? Same ole same ole. 6 pm cst.

I realize that the "bag a day" doesn't mean I have to buy a bag a day, having made my first re-Joyce purchase, but I adore chrysanthemums, the chubbier the better. So. I'm in.

$80

gorgous but holy cow people! way out of my bag budget now! at this rate I suspect I won't own one lol

Joyce - I have some fabric for you and will probably be in Wpg in Oct if you haven't collapsed from all the bag-making by then :-)

Hilarious!! Just what I was thinking... I can't afford these bags... Hey! Wait a minute! If I had some time, I could just make myself one!

oh, and... G and D...
FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!!

Fight? I'm thinking time-share bag. What do you say, dk?

Penny said...

Clever Grace ... Time share would work for me, too! Chubby Chrysanthemum is definitely a WINNER! Thanks Joyce. Penny :-)

Getting a bit rich - even on a time share. Thanks for the offer Grace

PS. Beautiful work Joyce. I'm sure that this exercise is not meant to inspire covetousness, but I'm getting a bad case of it :)

CarlaG said...

Assuming my bid of $125 at 1010am was registered.
You ladies sound like a lot of fun...I do not think I could do time-share especially with this beauty...not very good at share-zees!

Ha! Ha! :)

I'm pretty sure I should be consulting with my financial advisor before I do this, but here goes anyway.

$130 for the chubbie 'mums. This is a truly beautiful bag, Joyce.
