Mother's Day Gift Ideas in the Bag

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you are having a good week.  It's still raining here.  Good news though, the weather guy says it will clear off this afternoon.   





Before we get this party started, I mentioned a swim skirt that I ordered in my last favorite things post.  It arrived last week, and I absolutely love it.  It's a tad longer than a regular swim skirt, which I appreciate and because it's high waisted, it manages to curb the front and back flab.  I just ordered another one, and they are on sale.

I am not a shoe person.   It's very difficult for me to find comfortable shoes.  When I do find some comfy ones like the espadrilles that I found last summer, I usually order them in many colors.  

I am a purse and wallet person.  When the Mister asks me what I want for Mother's Day, I usually tell him that I would like a new Spring purse.  After 28 years of marriage, he knows that I need to pick it out.  Here are some purses that caught my eye.

If I didn't have to have 2 pounds of makeup within reach, I would order this cute little one.




Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  1. I am a purse gal as well Katie. I love my Dooney and Bourke. I just ordered a Zip Zip in Bone and I love it.

  2. I have had my eye on a wicker purse. So many cute options right now, but hard to find with inside pockets which I must have. I'm going to take a closer look at some of your options :-)

  3. I'm also a bag lady! Sadly, my purse collection was flooded so I'm slowly rebuilding it. Which is a really fun process!

  4. I am not a purse gal, but some of these are really pretty. I simply try to put everything I need in a Coach wristlet; however for trips I do overload a larger purse.

  5. Oh how I do love purses. They are definitely my Achilles heel.

  6. I love purses. However, I have had to learn to carry less, as after spine surgery I am no longer allowed to carry heavy bags. I love Vera Bradley, as her bags are colorful and light-weight. Have a great weekend! I'm Cape Cod bound!

  7. Purses are my passion. Mine MUST have at least one outside pocket, two or more make it better!! Love the swim skirt. Will check it out but doubt it comes in my big size. Thanks always for the fun here!

  8. Some great bags there! From a collector's view, Kate Spade has offered some really good ones that many of my friends have added to their collections (much like that strawberry basket), but for utility I always love a good satchel. That crossbody almond one is a great shape, but I like fun patterns too. I'd choose several of these!
    Have a great weekend!

  11. Oh, I wish Mom had lived long enough for me to do fun mom presents. She would have loved these.

  12. I could possibly be considered a hoarder of purses. Allegedly. I will not tell the hubs that your list may be contributing to my habit ;) have a great weekend!
