"So Not The Boss of Me" Tuesday Tote



So, it's March in Manitoba. And I was thinking all sorts of dark thoughts this morning, after sleeping in, missing my shower, and stumbling past the drafty front door that was blasting sub-human temperatures at my tender toesies as I passed by. March always does this to us- mocks us that winter will never never ever end.

I thought about hot coffee overdosing while watching "Martha Speaks" for an entire ten hour day. I thought about wearing the same corduroy pants until spring, just so I'd not have to get wet and cold, knowing that it's minus thirty-four outdoors.

I thought about not posting a bag today.
But then I remembered this really large tote bag that I put together last week, and how perfect it would be for towels, chips, and a bathing suit slung over your shoulder on your way to the beach.
Yes, the beach.
Because, by golly, even in our province, summer will come. It will be PLUS thirty, and not MINUS thirty. And we'll go to the beach again. Really.

So, let's stimulate the economy by starting the day off with $10, shall we?
Tomorrow will be Lettuce day, and it's no ten-bucker. This woman puts a lot of time and effort and intricacy into her work.

Bag Details: 16.5 x 16". Two pockets on the inside.
The bidding will go until 8 pm, cst. Tomorrow's bag will have a longer bidding period.
Now, go change your pants, get off the couch, and get packing for the beach; because winter is so not the boss of you.

What a rip!!


I am happy to amuse you, even though it means that I am bagless( today). The great part is that I'll be here in about 10 hours, lurking around for the next masterpiece!
The shit end of the stick is SK doesn't change time but because everyone else's does we are thrown into upheaval with our schedules.
I really loved that bag... nice job on it Joyce.
