Blue, Peach and a Tapestry Bag

Today was a jeans day again since it was council meeting day.  I am liking jeans less and less since starting blogging - what looks good in the morning just does not look good in a photo - or it might be that I just haven't found the right style for my shape. Or my shape is just not the right style for jeans!

This combination of blue and peach is not a normal one for me.  Not sure if the scarf ties it all together or not.


But, today's post is really about this nice bag that I found.  Actually Big J found it - he knew I was looking for a bag like this, and brought it to my attention.



It is a big overnighter bag in a blue tapesty print.  It was only $4 in an animal hospital store.  I assume other than overhead, all the profit goes to the animals since there were about 4 or 5 people with "volunteer" name tags.

Here is a closeup of the bag:



The other thing I'm trying out is the watermark - I am always afraid of someone using my pics as an example of what not to wear!  What d'ya think?  Overkill?  Should I transparentize it a bit more? Does it get in the way?  I thought of putting it in a corner, but thought it could be cropped.

Today, I'm linking to Visible Monday, Monday Mingle and Thrifter's Anonymous

  1. It's a great bag--small enough to carry for every day and big enough for a weekend trip. My photo software (Picasa) just automatically adds the watermark.

    1. It's perfect for all the junk I carry - even big enough for a trade size paperback. I'm using a free watermark software and there is a ton of stuff you have to setup - I think it's done now, just have to tweak it.

  3. Great bag, and scarf too, Narda. I agree with Mongs, the bag has a vintage look. I wasn't bothered by your watermark at all.

    1. Thanks Patti! I'm glad about the watermark, it took a few tries to get it to come out.

  4. LOL! Have no fear about someone using your pics for "what not to wear". The bag is really nice. I love that kind of thing for the fall, they have such a rich textured look.
    I passed the Blogger Appreciation Award along to you!

    1. Thanks Sheila! Yes, it still feels like fall here sometimes. I'll have to lookup the Blogger Appreciation Award. Thanks!

  5. Haha, every blogger's nightmare! Whatever you're most comfortable with is what you should do; the watermark doesn't bother me a whit. BTW, Narda, I LOVE that bag (current obsession: tapestry bags, vintage and even contemporary). I also love shopping at the animal welfare charity shops as that is a special cause for me - there's one in my town and it's also waaay cheaper than the rest. When I move I'm going to donate all my stuff to that shop. :)

    1. I love tapestry bags too, they sort of go with everything. Wow, you are going to donate all your stuff? Haha! Is that just a reason to buy more?
