Who Gonna Check me Boo? LOL!

What IS it about me and BAGS?! These are some new bags by Papaya art that I really love.  I don't own any of these (yet), but I sure do love them . . .









I bought this bag at the Women's Conference in Long Beach last month. It was $4 and has one of those lunch-bag-type-linings in it. You know, the silver kind that keeps food hot or cold? And check out what it says on the front. I mean really, I just HAD to have it right?

Kind of hard to read in my photo, but it says "I am unique.  I am grateful.  I am worth it.  I am determined."

And this is the tote that we all received as a gift on the Artful Voyage cruise with Tim Holtz.  I had Wendy Vecchi sign it, but never got around to having Tim sign.  Huuuummm, I guess I'll have to take it to the Carson Convention on Saturday and get his "John Hancock" added to my tote.

And when I returned from the cruise, some of the cruisers were talking about tote bags they got that Tim had designed, so of course I inquired, and was told to contact Mario to see if any were still available.  There WERE!  So I got one for myself and one for my sil/bff/cabin-mate Lezlei.  I've been using mine to carry work from "the day job" back and forth.  Isn't it just the coolest?!  I just LOVE the frayed edges and the handles and the hardware . . .

Oooooh, and I've got some of the grocery bag totes from Trader Joe's as well . . .



And look at these two totes I found on Etsy . . .

Both of them come all the way from ROME . . .

Sure would like this Obama Tote . . .


And a Love Birds tote would be kinda cool I guess . . .

And what about a tote made from a newspaper print flannel? . . .

And wouldn't pug owners want a flying pug tote?  . . .


Or if you're into cats, how about this messenger bag ? . . .


And check out this Burlap Paris Flea Market bag that the designer uses to hold rolls of toilet paper that she hangs from a crown hook.  Hey, I've got one of those cast iron crown hooks somewhere . . .



And if this came in a natural-colored tote with black lettering, I would DEFINITELY buy THIS in a tote!  LOL . . .


Anybody else out there in Blogland have an obsession for totes???

Me? Addicted to totes?!?!?

Darn right!!!!

I LOVE the new Papaya bags - have asked for one from Santa. Have a Trader Joe's bag, too. And my Tim bag & my cruise bag (I didn't get Tim to sign mine, either - did get Wendy - take mine with you to Carson, please?). And and and ... oh, yeah ... I love me some totes!! That French one (on the crown hook) ... mmm .... Oh, you are a bad influence, girl! *lol*

Oh, I sure do. I went ahead and got two of those Tim bags after the cruise...the one you bought (mine is blue), and the brown rock star one.
I also love the huge bags they sell in IKEA and the Container Store. Hold a ton and cost about $3-4. I use them to haul supplies to classes.
If only I had a closet just for my totes. They do tend to take over.

You are seriously into totes!

Going to have to make a run to my Trader Joe's. They didn't have the colorful ones anymore (have two, need MORE!).
