January Challenge - Day 25

I hope you're following along with TinaJeanKrista, and Kat. If anyone else wants to play, just let me know and I'll stick you on the 30 Day Challenge blog roll. :) My list (with links to each post so far) is here.

We're in the pink today as I tell you what you'd find in my bag.

I thought - briefly - about being clever (bag of tricks, a quilt project bag, bag of potatoes, bag of groceries, laptop bag, etc) but decided to just take the simple, straightforward approach instead. 

So, here's my purse.

I tell everyone I bought it at
Mrs. T's Mercantile,
one of the coolest quilt shops in Northern Iowa
It's pink, as promised, and while it's a smidge bigger than I tend to prefer, it's working out really well for me, probably because I don't carry much in it and it holds my sunglasses so I don't have to carry them separately. Most of the pockets - including both on the sides - are totally empty.

From the top. ;)
Actually, I keep only 2 things in pockets. My debit card, and notecards. Everything else is in the main compartment.

Ooooh. Two Avon lipstick samples! Forgot I had those!
Other than an occasional receipt, this is what I port around every day. I made the blue wallet, Michele gave me the worry-doll change purse, I keep the sunglasses with me (won them on the radio back in 2005? 2006?)  because my eyes are super light-sensitive after being lasered a couple of years ago, and I always have a little lotion, lip balm, ibuprofen, and cold pills. Add the checkbook, postynotes, some pens, my bank card, hair pick (circa 1986 lol), truck keys (car keys are in my coat pocket) and a scrunchie, and I'm good to go.

Does any item surprise you? Anything you expected to see, but isn't there?
