A Good Find: Ipanema Bags

A good find:  Hand made Ipanema Bags from a Brazilian artisan.  They're very inexpensive!
I've always been a sucker for these amazing South American patterns.  I came across these Brazilian Ipanema Bags from some artisans (which you can buy online for $25) and I thought they would make the perfect summer accessory for runs to the farmers' market, picnics at the park, and outings to the beach.

Aren't these fabrics amazing?  The next two are some of my favorites...

As a New Yorker, you can never have too many bags.  That's one thing I noticed when I moved here.  EVERYONE was carrying a bag on the train, containing anything they needed to transport for the day.  Instead of having cars and trunks to transport things, we have bags.

Also, I'm going to try and get better about taking bags from home to pick up things at the market.  I know it's just a little thing and saves a little bit of plastic trash.  But every little bit helps.

P.S.  Ever since my surgery, I've been LOVING wearing Danny's jeans.  He retired this pair so they're all mine now.  (I just looked them up and they're the Uniqlo Slim Fit Straight cut.  Size 31x34.)  I just wear them kind of low & roll up the bottoms.  They are SO comfortable.  Now if I could just get him to tire of that belt I keep borrowing.  :)  Also, the shirts from Uniqlo are still my favorite.  I never had a white shirt until Danny - he insisted I get one because just loves the way it looks and fits.

  1. LOVE those bags, too! I live in Central PA, so bags around here aren't utilized as much, but when out and about, they are a must have!! :)

    Yes! On days that my husband takes the train, he carries two bags- one for his laptop, and a wool and leather one that I made for him to carry his lunch, glasses, planner, and other odds and ends. Bags are like a car that you carry around with you :)

  3. White shirts and jeans are two great staples. Now in Seattle they charge you for bags at stores, so people are always trying to remember to bring their own. Those bags are great statement pieces.

  4. I love your blog and all your beautiful, uplifting thoughts. I've found myself noticing yellow more often and trying to share compliments when I think them. And I love that you were on BYU radio! I actually am going there right now:)

    Your white shirt is perfect, and Uniglo looks like a great site. But do they deliver to the US? How do you get yours?

    Thanks! You're a darling <3

  7. I love the individualized cards! They just went into my customised carrier bags cart. I'm sick and don't have the time/energy to make anything for my kiddos, so I appreciate it! :)
