A few of my favorite things

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I like Vera Bradley bags. With this week's theme being favorite things, it seemed like a good time to gather them all together for a photo.

These are mine. Silly, huh? The one I'm using the most right now is the green and navy tote in the back row.
I've got totes, purses in different sizes and styles, a wristlet, wallets, a checkbook cover, a coin purses, and even a couple of small totes I asked my SIL to sew for me out of place mats.

It seems pretty indulgent (and they're so loud!) to have so many when I put them all together like this. Most of them were gifts or bought at a discount when they 'retired' though, and even at full price they're cheaper than a Coach bag. (I am so good at rationalization.)

Becky, I LOVE all the color and pattern in these! Lucky you,...does this make you a bag lady??

Shanna Jones said...

Wowzers! I don't even have one of those bags! I think you need a giveaway...*snickers*...LOL

Holy smokes girl, that is QUITE a collection! I love the brown/blue one in the center, I have a keyring/wallet in that pattern. I also really like the pattern of the tote you are currently using. I keep saying I'm going to get one of the big totes for traveling, but then never actually do it. We've got a trip coming up in a couple of weeks, I really should just DO it.

Love your primroses pics....that red color is so creamy and delicious. Isn't it nice to know that spring really will come (fairly) soon?!?

I love Vera Bradley! It's not very popular out here, but that's pretty much all you saw when I lived in middle Georgia. I love that green/navy pattern! Is it retired? (please say no) :)

Diana said...

wow what a great collection of colorful bags!

Rachael said...

Wow, that's a bunch of Vera! I've been wanting one, I think they are so pretty!

Meaghan said...

That's a great collection!

Amy said...

These are all so pretty and bright! Looks like you have a purse to match any color outfit. I don't know this brand, I'll have to look into it.

I did see your Shack comments and have to agree. I was really into it until they actually got to the Shack, the characters they used were just a bit out there for me.

Seriously...I think you have a problem Becky. No...I know you do. I just love those bags too! And I love the patterns they come in. I am not a purse person, but I always think of buying one of those. Are they washable?

Reds said...

Wow Becky - those are some beautiful bags!! Love all the colors and patterns - I can understand why you've got such a big collection!!

KRISTIE said...

you should meet my sister, she is a purseaholic too :)

Queenie said...

WOW and I mean WOW. I cannot even begin to understand this. They are pretty, sure, but I have one bag. ONE bag. A black leather that goes with all. Oh, and I have a knapsack for really big adventures. This just blows my mind. WOW...I suppose that balances out all the colors of paint I buy. lol

Leanne said...

I agree with Shanna - You should have a giveaway (but only one of us without one can win ;)

Beth said...

I love these. I have been thinking about buying one! So pretty.
