spt challenge - what's in your wallet?



easy challenge this week!! the school year is winding down, we're firing up the memorial day grills and the flip flops are on! summer is upon us!

one of my favorite seasonal transitions is to change my everyday purse. i tuck away the dark (p)leather, sensible purses, and start sporting brighter bags. it's cathartic for me to empty out a purse, purge the flotsam and jetsam that has accumulated. a new, clean purse is like a blank page in a journal for me. a summer tote holds more than my wallet and lip gloss, it holds possibility!



i am alarmed at how quickly my fun little purse has filled up with STUFF!! as it tipped over on my car seat the other day, i quickly had the urge to snap a photo, to share with you all just what kinds of junk i'm carrying around! perhaps a picture of the contents of my pocketbook will tell you even more than a picture of me!

i'll show you mine if you'll show me yours.

happy memorial day weekend!!

This is so weird. Yesterday I was trying to find something in my purse and I had to dump the whole thing out. You'll never believe what I found in there!! As I was rummaging through my stuff I thought listing the contents of my bag would make a great post. I can't wait to see the results.

I want to get a new 'summery' bag this year. I love my brown leather one, but I want something more cheerful for the sunshine.

I might lose all my friends. My purse and my bedroom and my car are things I truly don't like to share. The front room is always clean but I'm a chaotic slob in my most personal spaces! I AM, however, excited to see what everyone has to show.

Maybe I will have to do a before and after. Mine is looking a little scary.

I love seeing what's in people's purses (not that it happens very often) so this will be fun.

You know, it's not too often that you get a chance to say flotsam and jetsam. Love it!!
