I love containers. Baskets are fun, buckets are essential (especially when feeding), but I love bags.
Am I referred to as the Bag Lady? Yes, indeed, and at oh, about 40 or more, weeellll... Ahem.
As you can see by the picture, I have a variety. Mom, (one of my enablers), made me a feed bag bag, which is on the left. This has led to several others. I have one that is a cat food bag, the poor clerk asked why the bag was open. I couldn't help it, I shrugged, then said I was snacking while I was in the store.
I think she was ready to call security.
Mom also made me a couple "hippie" bags (one on the right). I like it for my knitting, also, it doubles as a pillow...
Bags can make for interesting conversation. The center bag reads "Notorious Knitters World Domination Tour". When your 90+ year old grandmother reads this, there is LOTS of conversation! The feed bags have led to discussions on crafting, animals, and family.
Other bags have led to conversations on what's "old", conservation, strength, weight, and brand loyalty. (Do NOT get me started about using brand X bag at brand Y store! The blasted money is green, so shush!)
I guess bags are my method of keeping my 'stuff' handy, but they've turned out to be a great way for me to talk to people, have fun, and
Pretty good for a bag, huh?
