Beautiful straw. Be mine, or yours?

I started this back on Ms. Single Mama recently and it will continue here. My weekly thrift find giveaway. I absolutely love, love this bag. It has a cute pink, polka dot liner that actually comes up over its contents. Absolutely adorable. Just leave a comment to enter!

And, if you don’t mind (winner, whoever you are) I am going to keep using it until I have to mail it off.

Deadline to enter is Sunday the 29th at Midnight (EST).

    #1 – I just realized you have a new blog and I LOVE it. My honey and I have daydreamed about doing a similar blog idea, but my entrepreneur man is really too busy to be a part of a project like that, so I’m SO glad you are extending your community into the blended family one. I’m excited to be a part of the conversation. #2 – I heart this bag and I hope I win :).

      I know, seriously – I am going to shed a few tears when I send it off. But I bought it for one of you and I feel like it’s a gift. Can’t take it back. I’m such a weirdo.

    That bag is calling my name! Did you say pink polka dot? I have been reading your blog for over a year now. I am myself a single mama, with a 6 year old boy and 8 year old girl, who met the man of her dreams and his 10 year old son a year ago. So much love and happiness in our new blended family… Everybody is adjusting extremely well; dealing with angry exes is our biggest challenge.
    Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
