Bagvember Day 25 and it was a glorious day, with temperatures around 30 degrees. We had one of those days when we felt like we did almost nothing, yet were very busy all day. Have you had one of those days recently? Weird, aren’t they.
The bag du jour is a cream leather Cole Haan tote bag with internal pockets and zippered sections, and featuring my personal favourite length handles. This bag cost me $5 from my local Red Cross, and a few minutes of polishing with some restorative polish and she was looking much prettier.
We had a family trip to Bunnings. Boyo and I couldn’t resist the siren call of the fundraising sausage sizzle, whilst the Welshman went in search of stuff to make a new base for Mr Bunsy’s hutch. He’s good like that.
A trip to Bunnings isn’t complete without wandering around the garden section. Today’s purchases included an agapanthus – such a grown up plant – and a pineapple bromeliad.
Isn’t it cool – a teeny tiny little pineapple growing in my garden!
I’m participating in 7 Days of Selfies again with Alyce of Blossom Heart. This time, it has a Thankful theme – let’s be thankful for the little things! This is Day 4 of my 7 Days of Selfies, and today I’m thankful for sunshine and quiet times.
So, what is this Bagvember stuff all about?
Have you heard about Borne Naked handbag liners? I love to swap bags and I use mine all the time.

Amanda George from Borne Naked has a Handbag Blog, where she showcases everything handbags. She’s a little bit obsessed (I know the feeling well!).
Amanda has issued a challenge for November. Firstly, she’s nicknamed it Bagvember, and it’s all about changing handbags every day for the month of November. Amanda thinks she probably has at least 100 bags.
I’m going to accept the challenge and change my handbag every day. For reasons of practicality, I’m not committing to 30 handbags in 30 days, but I am committing to changing my handbag every day.
My darling 8 year old Boyo loved Frocktober and very proudly told everyone he met that his mama was doing Frocktober. He brainstormed a pile of ideas for what I could do in November, and Bagvember was one of his ideas. It’s fate really, isn’t it! He also came up with Lipstickvember and Bravember and Knickervember. Hmmmm …
