Show 'n Tell
Grad gift. Somebody has a sister who loves her very much.
This bag was purchased shortly after the hype in the Winnipeg Free Press. It was tough to snag a bag sometimes, so sister to that cutie above used two computers to stay on top of who was bidding when.
She also told me a great story about that adorable hat. Apparently our grad here saw the hat on an elderly gentleman at Tim Hortons and purchased it off the old fella's noggin.
I like that kind of pluck.
Have Bag Will Travel
Huge tree in a Paris, France park.************** Dahab, Egypt.
Eiffel Tower, Paris. ******************Notredame Paris
If you look closely, or click on the image to enlarge it, you will see two bags that have travelled great lengths. The white, pink, and slightly greenish one is in the Paris pics. On the Egypt picture, you will see a bag with embroidered elephants laying on the ground beside its owner.
That one is pretty amazing. I bought that fabric as a dress at Global Connections at the Forks many years ago and wore it while gestating one, two , or three kids. Who knows where that fabric was originally produced. After living a humble life in Brandon, Manitoba, it went on to be reincarnated into a shoulder bag and live its second life travelling the likes of Dahab, Egypt.
