What's in My Bag?




You know, when I thought of doing this post I chuckled. Why you ask? Well because "My Bag" is far from a grown up lady bag. My everyday bag or as I called it when i was little "my pocka-book" (is that a New York/ New Jersey thing? )  ...I don't drive..so no car keys. I rarely leave the house without Aaron or my sis...so as far as a house key..I keep that in a jewelry box. I don't even carry a phone. Yes I've already mentioned that I am a weirdo. Not new news. My bag is more of a "busy bag" that you'd bring along for your kid during church or a waiting room visit..or picnik. 



This darling bag was handmade by a super sweet and talented friend of mine about 5 years ago. Yes..vintage sheets people...wayyy ahead of the game. Isn't it the cutest? It's perfect as a summer bag...or a park or beach "busy bag" 

In it today:












I always love seeing these posts...so if you've recently done a "What's in My Bag" leave me a link to come see!!

  1. I love that you posted this! I always find it fun to see what other people carry. My purse is literally full of so much junk, I'd have to do a pre-cleaning and then decide what to show. :)

  2. Hah, what a fantastic bag! It's funny because I actually did a post on what was in my bag today. (http://ziedarling.blogspot.com/2012/06/what-wednesday-whats-in-my-bag.html)
    But I like how fun yours is! I'd love to be able to take my art journal around with me... maybe I'll start carrying a bigger bag. Who knows?
    But again, adorable bag.

  35. Jenny , I think your bag is lovely !
    Who needs a growing-up bag anyway ? ...and what is a growing-up bag ;-)
    What I like is that you don't carry your phone with ya .. mhm.. that would be a great challenge for me .. haha.. my phone is actually my photocamera .
    You inspired me to start with my Blog again, today I'll post my bag on my Blog ..and hopefully I'll start Blogging after such a long time of , an unnecessary, break :)
