My Purse Is Falling Apart, but I <3 it.

My granuelita gave me a purse/camera-baggish leather contraption last year that I’ve fallen madly in love with, but it’s falling apart from all angles.

Oh, old little bag, I don’t want to trade you in for a snazzy new one! …  It’s been holding on by a staple in these various ways:

Leather Strap: crumbling like Beef Jerky.  Scissored off deteriorated parts & stapled the rest together.

  

Gaping hole on side continues to widen.  Big as a sink hole.  Originally closed it with printing paper & staples.

Came undone within 2 weeks.  Consequently, I’ve fastened it shut with big fat safety pins, which I enjoy much more.

One side of shoulder straps ripped off  (safety pin holds zipper to bag)

Now I carry bag on shoulder from only the other side.  

 

My Bag from the front — looks as good as new!  SEE, mom 😉


And for Kicks …

My grandma threw this blanket over her porch recliner to give it character.

We are reading The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel together.  According to granuelita, about 20-years ago an old priest gave away most of his books during a Church yard sale since the Church was closing and he had to move. Consequently, he gave her the entire Master Key System series.
