An early Christmas present (or two)

You might remember these Midi Queen purses that I wrote about a few months ago. These one-of-a-kind handbags are designed by Kristina Wilkov (a.k.a. the MidiQueen) who lives in Ventura, Ca.
And lucky for me, she also happens to be friends with a good friend of mine.

My friend was in town this weekend and dropped by with bags galore for me to select from ...

I had told her what fabric I liked and she brought me out quite an assortment ... so many shapes and sizes that it was hard to pick just one.

This is the one I chose:

I liked the larger size of this one (W) 15” taper to 10” (H) 12” (D) 4 ½”). I thought I could throw in a pad of graph paper, a tape measure and a paint deck if I wanted to. It is going to make a darling work bag!!!

Honestly, I would have been happy with any of them. I also really liked this little clutch.

And the iPad cover.

And I really had a hard time not getting this wine caddy, not because I thought I would use it that much (I don't think I would be carrying chilled wine too many places or even a sack lunch these days), but because it is adorable:

 It has a removable pocket that holds two bottles of wine or without the divider, a lunch or two.

My daughter has had her Midi Queen "mother's" bag (a baby gift from my friend!) for a while now and loves it. It is unique and stylish and very sturdy. I am excited to finally have one of my own. The bags come in lots of fabrics and sizes ... If you want one for yourself, you can order them here and see more on their Facebook page here.

And for the other early present...

My new counters are coming soon! I'll tell you more about that later ...
Happy Monday everyone!

Wow!!! I love these! I'm SO TIRED of my diaper bag! My husband mentioned another day I looked like a postman with them. Yes, I need to find something more feminine, more fun!!! :-)

New counters? Lucky girl!!! I'm so happy for you, Sherri.

Missing you and wishing you a blessed day, my friend.
