More From My Mom

My mother has really gotten into helping me find blues and pinks for our special days. For today's Blue Monday, I have her summertime purse to show off. One of her awesome daughters gave it to her for Mother's Day last year. I wonder which one?It's a great quilted cloth purse with a zipper closure and a small pocket on the outside so there's a place to toss your keys or phone quickly. As you can see, my mom is very germ-conscious and carries her Purell with her.Inside, the bag has six compartments of varied sizes, going all around, so it's really easy to stay organized.The purse was part of a set with a make-up bag and wallet. Mom didn't switch out her wallet, sticking with the one she's had for over 30 years, but she did use the make-up bag, so I thought that was a big thing for her. She liked this purse so much that she bought herself one in a different fabric for winter.
I hope you'll take some time to check out my 8 book giveaways. Then go visit Smiling Sally and see the other great Blue Monday displays. Have a great week!

Elizabeth, that's so pretty. To me it has a Tahitian feeling... very exotic.

Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Elizabeth, I am still trying to catch up on blue Monday. I do love those quilted purses. My sister gave me a cloth one from Hawaii and it is called Ugly Bag. Real cute. I should post it. Your mom's blue bag is very pretty.
