Oooh, shop-shop

I still owe you another FO report, but in the meantime, let me distract you with some shopper-tunities.

Firstly, I’ve been remiss in not sharing the photos of my pretty Piddleoop bag sooner.  It’s called a project wedge bag, and it jumped in my cart when I failed to check out with a Hannah bag.   Do note the “I helped Hannah” button though, so I can still tell the Knight this bag (with the button attached) was purchased to help Hannah’s owner cover her final expenses.  There was more candy included, but we ate it.  (Sissy still wants the blowpop, but no dice.)

Zipper pull reads, Dog Lover

Zipper pull reads, "Dog Lover"

See the zipper pull too?  Sweet!  That’s just another reason I love their bags. 

Last year, I somehow missed out on the Get Your Knits in Virginia state-wide yarn crawl.   Two local shops are on the list, but there are a few others that I hope to hit in the month of July.   Anyone else getting their VA knit on in July?  Speak up, and maybe we can cross paths!  (Thanks Cathy, for bringing this to my attention!)

ScottieDog0609-homeLLast, but oh-so hardly least, I’ve been seriously disappointed in Dooney & Bourke‘s offerings for several years.   No, it’s NOT the traditional, all-weather-leather I fell in love with in the previous century, but it’s red and it’s terriers, so what’s not to love?  (It comes in a white background version too, but I’m seeing red.)

(Go to the website linked in the photo if you really want to read the fine print.   I didn’t really want it there, but maybe you’re interested?)

I should also mention that when I was 11, my dream dog was a Scottie.  I still think I’d like one, but the grooming kills the urge every time.  That, and they tend to be one-person dogs, and we’re a two-dog lover household.

I mean really… red x terriers x bag.  I might need more than one…

    Great bags! I wonder if Sissy ate the blow-pop if she’d poot a bubble… SNOL The Boss’ daughter got her a birthday card with that on it. 🙂

    I love the daisy bag!

    Never have been a big fan of D&B, but I LOVE my Coach purses.

    That’s a very cute handbag! Maybe they’ll make one for beagles too 🙂

    My tongue literally puckered up when I saw that blowpop. At first I thought it was a charm pop. I could never be patient and would crunch down on the candy to get to the gum inside.

  8. Sue J. says:

    I loved the D & B bags when they were the all weather ones, too. Always carried a D & B. But, I agree that things changed too dramatically for me regarding their styles. That’s when I discovered Vera Bradley. NEver looked back.

  9. anniebananie says:

    You have a bag fettish!!!!! I do think that the D&B bag is adorable, though…

  10. Kathy says:

    OH please don’t give Sissy a blowpop. Mr. Bettis would read about it and then he would want one. LOL

    Nice goody haul:).

  12. Miss Me says:

    The D&B bag ain’t so bad either… 🙂
