Wandering Eyes

Why are all six of my perfect purses sitting in the top of my closet?

When I was at Marshall's for pillowcases the other day, my eyes actually didn't just wander on the way to the check-out when I found the fancy shirt.

My eyes wandered before I ever got to the pillowcases.

My wandering eyes saw this.

The style is very similar to the ones I have now yet still different. It has snap pockets on each end. I use one for my Altoids and one for my little Kleenex packet.

I actually passed it and went back to it.

It was such a great price I just couldn't resist it. Maybe it was that orange and fuchsia in the plaid. Maybe because it was the same yet different as my perfect purse. Maybe because I could justify it with Mother's Day coming up.

The good news is, I don't have a gap on my shelf anymore for the purse I'm using. When I switch out, this one will take it's place.

The bad news is, if my eyes wander and I see another one someday, there's no more space on that shelf.

Yet another example that we are truly kindred spirits. Girl, you make me smile. I love your new plaid purse.

It's very cute! And I'm so relieved that you don't have an empty spot in your closet - that was really worrying me!

Is it my imagination or is that shelf swaying?
I used to have lots of purses but now just a few. Two for packing: a red one and a string one. Then a few backpack purses and one straw looking summer purse which I am carrying now.

I know how those eye stopping items are, though. I once saw this great red wind breaker in the display window of a Mall store. I went in and looked at it. $40. I left and thought about it for a couple of weeks then went back. I couldn't even remember the store and it wasn't in the window anymore. But, I finally found it. I still have it and wear it each year. It packs well, too. Only the hood doesn't have a strawstring. I've thought about adding one. This was in 1995-1997 while we lived in Chattanooga so it was worth the money.

No sway in the shelf. Just my attempt at holding the camera up higher than how tall I am.
