I’m afraid of a handbag. There. I said it.


My husband knows me well. He also has uber-fantastic taste when it comes to anything ME.   Many moons ago, a large box from Tiffany’s arrived at our house.  Inside it was a beautiful bracelet and soft silky drawstring bag that had this:

All I could do was look at it! So pretty, with that trademark silky blue Tiffany fabric inside. The soft leather handles and fold-over lid. Sigh.  I don’t own many leather bags and have never own a bag with a basket base, so once again I just started at it.  People, I’m afraid to use it!!  Tiffany is not inexpensive!! What if one of the kids scratches it, or I bang it on a shopping cart? What if it gets dirty? EEK!

So you all are saying, “Cindy, get over it! It’s just a bag.” I probably will. I’ll save it for those kid-less days or when I can really show it off. This beauty is just too sweet to keep on my display shelf.  If you all have a “scaredy-cat” bag like me, what is it and how do you protect it?  Cindy

  1. Oh that is sew cool! My hubby would never think of that. He bought me hiking sandals once, and that was awesome. I can see that with a lovely floral dress, kinda vintage/retro. Or just jeans and a top! Use it! I have beautiful eggplant coloured leather Coach bag that doesn’t get used very often. But I’m learning to use it more. It was a present to myself and the leather is buttery soft and smells soooo good! It’s my schmanciest thing! Here in Australia, eggplants are called Aubergines and so is the colour – so I’ve named her Bergie. Bergie likes to shop. Take Tiffany shopping, she deserves it for lookin so good. Janelle
