I don't presume anybody's like me, because, after all, we're all unique, but let's say for the sake of argument, you're like me, and "collect" bags. I'm not talking about high end bags or purses, (sorry) I'm talking about tote bags. Aka yarn bags, aka knitting bags, crochet bags and the smaller variety: project bags. I've found myself to be an accidental collector of bags, just like I have become an accidental collector of coffee mugs, which I have WAY too many of. (I'm also an inspiring collector of shoes, but that's a whole other story. Maybe a different post, we'll see.) But getting back to bags and mugs, I find myself buying one or the other because when I find "THE ONE" that COMPLETELY expresses my personality, of course I HAVE to have it! I try to justify my bag purchases in my mind by convincing myself at a certain level that even though I have too many bags, bags are FUNCTIONAL, so thus, they serve a purpose: to keep my knitting and crochets WIPs or UFOs mobile, so I can be "on the go" at a moments notice and have my current (or not-so-current) project ready to go where ever and when ever I want to go somewhere! So there! What could be more logical???
Same thing with mugs. If I'm at a random gift shop, or on vacation and I see a mug with a snarky comment or saying on it that totally speaks to me, I also have to have it! And what's more functional than a mug (besides a bag) to hold your favorite warm beverage as you relax with your knitting or crocheting bag at your side working on your current project?
So what's your bag? Or must have item? Or thing that you love to collect?
These are SOME of my favorite bags.
