Mama's Got a Brand New Bag!



Yipee! Yesterday, I got in the mail, the market bag I won in the drawing on Anne Marie's Na-Da Farm blog. Isn't it cool!! It is made out of an antique French (let me say that again...French!) linen/hemp grain sack. It is nice and roomy and perfect to carry all my favorite magazines or a current scrapbooking project!


Look.....She even embroidered my name on a little pocket on the inside!


This is Lucky, my second son. (He turned 8 years old this month) He loved the bag too. He was acting like it had catnip on it. He is an environmentally aware cat so he was probably just letting me know he was really excited that it was make of a recycled hemp bag.


Lucky says, "This bag is Bliss". I hope he understands.....That's Mama's bag!

Hi Lilly-Sue,
Thanks for stopping by and visiting and taking the time to leave me a comment! Glad to hear from a fellow Oregonian! i love Sisters..."Quilt Show" coming up soon...
Your Kitty is adorable in your new bag...silly...
I am very sorry to hear about your "Family Disaster" in Oklahoma...but of course so very happy that no one was injured. I will follow your blog to hear about their progress. Hope you will let us bloggers know if there is anything concrete that we can do to help!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Thats cute! my kittys love bags too unfortunately they like the plastic bag kind. One of them isn't so fond of them any more though, she somehow got her middle through one of the handles and went tearing through the house with the bag chasing her. It was hillarious but she wont go near one now.

I'm even more happy that you like it Lilly Sue - you totally deserved it! and I can't wait to see what you bring home in it from the markets :)

Lucky you! How wonderful that she personalized it for you too. I love your kitty son. I have a brown tabby kitty. Only she is my kitty daughter. Her name is Janie.
