Happy Fun Monday!

Hello all and thanks to everyone who participated in this week's Fun Monday! My Fun Monday assignment is to post a photo of your purse and/or wallet and describe the contents. Since this is a repeat Fun Monday assignment for some of you, I hope you don't mind sharing again. Perhaps the original assignment was so long ago, that you have since changed your purse. If you are anything like me, I switch purses with every season!

I am so looking forward to seeing everyone's purses, pocketbooks, wallets, hand bags, satchels, totes, etc. Did you know that the things you carry can provide a window into your soul? A purse and a purse's contents can certainly reveal alot about one's personality. Are you organized and always ready for the unexpected, or are you a disorganized free spirit? Take a look at all of the Fun Monday participants and see what you think. (scroll down for the links).

Since the start of the summer season, I have been carrying this Vera Bradley bag and matching wallet in the Peacock pattern:


As I said before, I like to switch purses with every season. I do not always carry a "Vera" bag, but lately I have had much luck with ordering her bags online and getting very good deals. I like the look and feel of this summery bag, even though it hardly ever matches what I wear! This may bother some people. In fact, I actually had a MAN comment on my non-matching status. I immediately responded, "I didn't know you were the fashion police!" And then, I promptly whacked him up side the head with my very durable fabric Peacock patterned Vera Bradley bag!

A good purse to me must have many slip pockets and at least one zip pouch inside. I like to keep my purse organized. Organized purse = organized life. I try to keep it simple and carry only the necessities such as, pill box, Kleenex, nail file, lip gloss, compact, gum, mints, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, eye drops, pen, reading glasses, wallet, cell phone, receipts, coupons and that's about it. Oh wait, there is one more necessity a girl may need just in case - a tampon!


Thanks for playing and many thanks to Grace for volunteering for next week's Fun Monday (7/6/09)! Pop on over there later this week to see what her assignment will be and to sign up!

Cherie just did this recently at her place. I missed it then and I think I am missing it now. In the midst of traveling, my purse is a mess!

Sayre said...

What a gorgeous bag! I don't think you need to match everything with your bag - a bag should stand alone!!!

You seem pretty organized to me. I just toss everything into one hole - no thought of organizing there!

I too love Vera's or any other soft quilted bags. However, I take the coward's way out and do the coffee patterned one. Was it your husband who got confused and thought he was the fashion police? :-) Now I think you like pretty things, Church Lady, from special kleenix to colored pens--me too. and, is that a diamond nail file? I love mine.

Mariposa said...

I'd love to be with you as you carry important stuff with you! LOL

I love your bag...just that for my case I need something more sturdy and you will know why! ;)

This is nice topic...LOVE it! Thanks for hosting.

Your purse is gorgeous!! And I hear ya on the zippy pockets and pouches. They're a necessity! And might I add that I see I wasn't the only one shopping at Kohl's this past week? :-) I also have ten Kohl's Bucks that I need to spend by July 11. Bet I'll forget ;-) Fabulous topic, thanks for hosting and sharing!

PS Argh...I had scheduled my FM to post at o-dark-thirty today, and so far, it hasn't come up. I will fiddle around with it ASAP this afternoon!

Heather said...

WE have the same purse! How fun! You are so organized! This was hte oomph I needed to get mine cleaned up! Thanks!

Janis said...

You are a chip off the old block, that is for sure. I think the contents of my purse are identical...LOL. I too like many pockets within my purse, so I can retrive an item quickly. Thanks for hosting this week, it was fun.

Tracy said...

I'm not nearly as organized as you. You know me, a little messy but I usually get by. I can always count on you for a piece of gum and a Tylenol.

I am eyeballing that Kohl's cash! Mine expired before I could use it. Yeah, I know...a horrible shame!

Gattina said...

Nice purse, I only change twice a year, for summer and winter and of course now on vacation, lol !

Pamela said...

I RECOGNIZE that hand lotion. ha ha ha. That's what was in mine. Someone gifted it to me -- and I rarely use it, but I still carry it.

I like the bright colors. I should go shopping and get a new exciting purse, too.

LOVE the Vera Bradley purse!

And props to you for being so organized. I SO aspire to that...

grace said...

Can I have some kohl's cash? I love your bag. Thanks for the nice interesting topic. Your cell phone looks just like mine :-)Thanks for directing them to the correct blog, I did not even think about the blogspot one

ChrisB said...

Oh dear hide my head in shame I'm not only very late in getting my post up I'm totally disorganised and haven't even got out my summer bag yet.

Sandy said...

I love Vera! I have a winter bag, a spring bag, and posted my summer bag. Can't wait to find the perfect one for fall. Thanks for hosting this week and for such a fun topic.
