Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

What I Bought

Welcome to Mimi's shopping blog. It seems like that's about all I've been posting about for days. Anyway. I don't know what's the matter with me. I need another purse like I need a hole in the head. But this one, they tell me, is THE color for winter...eggplant. I wouldn't have bought it but can you see the bow?
I need more Halloween decorations like I need a hole in the head but I bought this anyway...

AND here in Utah these cute little bracelet watches are all the rage. They have little alligator clasps so you can change the beaded bands. I had the blue and brown, at the boutique I bought the silver and clear. So, that's about it. I have some fun things I've been working on that I'll show you next week.

Greetings Mimi Sue, I'm finally back from my summer long blogcation.

One of my fav designers (of MANY) is Kathy Van Zeeland who has supplied my purse addiction with many of her designs . I'm sure it has something to do with the lure of all the shiny charms that dangle from each of her bags. You can never pass a purse with a * cute bow*...that would be sooo wrong...that could keep a girl up at night! LOL! ;)
Bracelet watch...a two for...couldn't ask for more. Well done.
I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

Too cute! You deserve it! I think I need a new bag too.

Your purchases are so cute? I love the bracelet watch and have never seen anything like it-may I ask where you found it. It would be great to have one where you could change out the bracelet part! And I love the face, too.

Oh that purse is gorgeous and I love the witch.

It is so funny how the trends vary from state to state. I haven't seen the watches here.
