Which do you like? Fun or Functionality?

I love to shop small boutiques for fun fashions...

and eclectic clothes and accessories!


How do you like this bag I bought at Talullah’s ....

(wish I could afford to buy all of my clothes there!)


made in Viet Nam entirely of little squares of SHELL!


It was hard to get a good’s so reflective!


But isn’t it divine?


And don’t you love a shop that uses pretty bags...


and that has cute tags?


And for functionality....


hubby needed a bag for an external hard drive and cable

so I made one just the right size!


I live in Florida...I know....all of YOU know!

But I do  have friends ALL over the country AND the world!

I just have to give you the link to my girlfriend’s blog

this morning! It’s called....”A little cold weather humor”

and I know you will love it!

CLICK HERE to visit Jemm in the Flint Hills!

Enjoy your weekend!

I’m off to buy all the fixins’ for hamburgers

and chip and dip for Super Bowl Sunday!

My oldest son will be working at the stadium

all day on Sunday! Hope Texas warms up soon!


Do you have Super Bowl plans?

Love your shell purse! We will probably just sit home and watch the game. No special plans. I will probably only watch the commercials - lol.

Comeca Jones said...

Lovin that bag! Hot ! And as for the game we were invited to a party but we are in Texas so I dont have to tell you we are snowed in...:/So maybe I will make a veggie and fruit tray for us and I can watch and pretend to know whats going

I love both, funk, function and cuteness...sometimes it's a hard job, but someone has to do it. Have a great weekend!!~ X0

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Nice bag and love the bag you made for your husband. I think that external hard drive is what I need to backup my lap top? I don't watch football, but hubby may.

Donnie said...

We'll be spending it with family and enjoying the good eats. Your purse is very pretty. Take care.

Brenda Kula said...

No, no plans. That bag is ultra pretty. I shop for the house, but rarely for myself personally. Don't know why. I just hate to shop in stores I guess.

Vee said...

That is a beautifully unique purse. Do you have to be careful of breaking it? No plans for Super Bowl Sunday although I'm sure that a hamburger and chips and dips sounds great.

La said...

What a beautifully unique bag. I love it. Will you be pairing it with a funky outfit for Wednesday's fashion post? I can't wait to see.

Sunday, I think I am going to try to make egg rolls using Joni's (Red couch Recipes)recipe.

Have a fabulous weekend! La

Nice design on your new purse!

The SuperBowl is great even if my Patriots are not in the game. The game, the commercials, the half-time show...:)

That cold weather photo was so funny!

Tammy@beatrice banks said...

Your bag is beautiful! Love it. Just hanging out with the guys in the house for Super Bowl. I'm sure I'll be the chef.
Have a great weekend.

That is a gorgeous bag! We have a boutique here & it carries childrens clothing. They have the pretties wrapping paper EVER!!! Just seeing the paper gets me excited! You know inside that paper is something fabulous. No superbowl plans for me really. We aren't football fans. Hope you enjoy your Sunday though!!

Jean @ Prim Crafts said...

Your shell bag is really neat! I have to say I'm not a big sports fan so I have never sat an watched the super bowl or gone to any parties. Enjoy your burgers while watching the game!

Joy said...

Wow what a beautiful bag! I just love it.. sounds like a nice place to shop. No super bowl plans here just working. Have fun whatever you do though ;)

Stacey said...

Oh, oh, oh, that bag is to die for!! Seriously it's gorgeous. I'm a Macy's and Ann Taylor Loft shopper mostly. For unique things it is fun to go to the little boutiques. You need to show that off on Wednesday!

quiltingnana said...

that bag is gorgeous....I don't have any Superbowl plans...will sew instead!
Just back from FL...miss the warm weather already

Karen said...

Great bag, would never buy it for myself.. because.. I am so hard on things I'de bang it around and break all the shells!

I really like what you made for your husband's hard drive..there's probably a market for this!

We are making sauce and meatballs and having the family over - but our teams are not playing - Boo.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

We are having a party here, just got done making the pepperoni dip so it will be ready to pop in the oven tomorrow:) Your son is lucky to be there in all the excitement, we are Steeler fans big time!

Della said...

Nice handbag! I love anything shell-y. It's so shimmery and pretty.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What a gorgeous and unique bag! I love it!
I be watching the game with one eye and with the other I will probably be looking throughsome magazines :)

Diane said...

the Bag is wonderful and fun!! My husband is a big Cleveland Browns fan so that means that he does not like this Super Bowl at all because the Steelers are in it--me--I could care less --but I do like the Black Eyed Peas :)

nancy huggins said...

Awesome purse..I love the shiny look of all the shelves...I never thought of making a bag for my externial hard drive..good idea..Thanks for sharing :)

Lallee said...

The bag is beautiful--a work of art.

Your ice cream post had me drooling. I did have pistachios this week, except they were in a beet and blue cheese salad.

We went up to the Indian Mounds yesterday. We walked in drizzly rain. We just HAD to get out of the house for a change. I thought of you while we were there.

Jemm said...

What a cool bag! Perfect for Florida. Thanks for the link! I wondered how I was getting some new people today ;o) That's awesome!

Hello, I'm visiting from somewhere but memory being a poor servant, can't remember from where.
When I travel, I always shop at thrift stores; it's fun to see what treasures I can find that speak to the identity of the locale.

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

The bag is quite amazing!! Love your striped cover too!!!
