My Summer Hand Bags

After reading Leah's post yesterday from Who Moved My Cheese Straw? about her Caro-Nan Baskets...which by the way was so interesting. Who knew? I thought I'd show you my two favorite summer bags. I've had them for a few years now. The first one is a take of the old vintage wicker purse. It's more modern in detail but definitely a take of the wicker bags from the 50's & 60's. I purchased it at TJ Max. Cute I know but....

below is my pride and joy. Although...I like the newer bag...it can't compare to this one. I bought this on eBay for $5 and it still had the original tags on it! I really like the Lucite handle and trim. It's from the 50's or 60's! Since the summer season is gently drifting by...I thought I'd share and don't forget to stop by Who Moved My Cheese Straw? I know she would love to have you visit. Have a lovely day! ~amy

Your bags are adorable! The one that you bought on ebay is special. I've never bought anything from ebay. I'm missing out. ;)

I can see your attraction for both bags.. I do like the bottom just a tad more. I have a cute straw bag I got from Bath and Body works, it was holding lotions and potions but it turned out to be such a cute purse!! I have an addiction to purses...and shoes.

thanks for stopping by.

Oh my, love those two bags. I am a handbag person. DH asks me all the time, "Do you REALLY need that???" Welllll, of course, I do. Silly man.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I must say I love the top one best. Lime green? Oh yeah. That is great.
