Things for carrying things are lovely.


Just look at this adorable little case I got off Trade Me.

Just look,I tell you!!!

It's soooo cute!

It's smaller than I realised, and therefore all the more goregous!

Gawd, but I love things for carrying things!

Handbags, cases, purses......mmmmmmm....can't get enough.

I must have bought at least 30 bags/cases this year alone.

Lucky for me, G gets it.

That isn't to say that he fully understands it, but he does get the desire to own these lovely things!

Enough of my addiction, now look at ME!


I've admired this entranceway for some time.

Frock-the awesomely kind Brian , with some alterations by moi

Is obsessing over bags (of all descriptions) bad?!

Is it shallow?!

Do I care?!

With me it is tin boxes, but they have to be square...
I always forget that you are in summer Helga flowers.

Obsessing over things to carry things = GOOD. Obsessing over washing your hands or turning off the iron = BAD.

I am currently obsessing over 1970s American Playboy magazines and wedge heeled shoes.

Whatever floats your boat!

I LOVE you in that gorgeous butterfly wing sleeve frock. Beautiful fabric and great colours on you!

Great frock on you! I love handbags - it's a problem. My Mum once asked my husband to stop me buying them but now they've just resigned themselves to it. Nice that G understands - it's just easier that way!

The case is gorgeous. No it is not shallow to obsess over bags. I obsess over bags, shoes, fabric, just about anything. Love the sleeves on the dress too.

Miss Claire said...

Ohh, the things I could put in that box! Ehehe he! But seriously, It is very groovy. Love those sleeves as well!

And you still have the best legs in all of blog-land!

Oh my, I have a collection of vintage suitcases much like that... I have two stacks of them! Why didn't I think to stick to purses and handbags? Oh noooo 1950's Atomic Ranch lady had to think BIG lol...

Luuuuv the dress!!!

Madeline said...

love it! very cute!

Kelly said...

I have a case like that but it's all brown leather and a bit beat up, use it for my hair clips and bits, makes me look pretty funky when heading out to do a clients hair. :)
Love that one though.

And love your dress, can't beat a kimono sleeve. And the boots are rather lush also!!

I agree with you. The case is lovely.

Cute trunk.

And I do love a big sleeve. x

Gorgeous frock and I love the vanity bag. It's not wrong to love bags, they make outfits different and there are so many options... bags rock. xx

The case is ace but, is it as good as the sentence, "I've admired this entranceway for some time". It's really hard to say. It's a cute case, but it's a good entrance too. I shall ponder while I sup my gin...

I used to have this exact box!! omg, I wonder what happened to it!

heidisadventures said...

I adore the Asian theme going on with your lovely dress in that doorway. I'll print out one of the photos and hang it on my friends wall to boast with you :-)

Alex said...

That is a very impressive entranceway! Not quite as impressive as the gorgeous creature standing in it though. LOVE that frock - you can't beat a bit of gigantic sleeveage, can you?

The sleeves are such a great surprise after being hidden away underneath the blazer. Trademe is great for finds like your vintage vanity cases.
