words to live by .... on a shopping bag


.... i knew a brand, fresh produce, because i have bought my girls some of their clothes ..... usually at the beach .... usually more expensive than i like .... usually off the sale rack, consequently ... but i've always thought it was cute, cute stuff.... soft cotton, bright colors, fun prints ..... and whadddaya know? when i was shopping today i found a whole store called fresh produce .... FULL of GREAT stuff ... a little more expensive than i like to spend ..... but oh so cute .... and, luckily, with a FULL sale rack ....waiting for me to find some end of summer colorful bargains ..... i got a cute tshirt, a turquoisey flippy skirt and a shrug ...though, i have trouble remembering the word shrug, it's not in my personal lexicon as an article of clothing, so from heretofore let's call it a cute little jacket ....anyway, three cutie pie purchases .....and they all came in the MOST fab bag.....


yes, i know it is peculiar, but i am blogging about a shopping bag ...... i saw it and thought, that is ME .... now, that's a weird thing to think about a paper sack!! but it is just MADE for an artsy girl ..... particularly for an artsy girl who is all about color .... loud, vibrant, woooohoooo color .........and, when i unpacked my things, inside on the bottom of the bag is a HUGE sign that says laugh .... it is on the cardboard that helps the bottom of the bag keep its shape .... so, i ripped it out and it is propped up for all to see .... sophie said, didja buy that today? nope, they gave it to me for FREE when i bought some clothes ......WOW! you are always so lucky, mommy! ......

laugh ..... i've had a happy day and hope you have too .... i'll show you the progress on my chairs tomorrow ... today, it seemed more important to share my shopping bag .....

Oh...a groovy colorful bag for a groovy/lucky mom! For a slit second I thought you were going to tell us that you're starting to design paper bags for Brand Name stores! And if you had told us that, I'd have totally known you would have been super successful! Cuz I'd like to find LAUGH at the bottom of my bag! Or SMILE...
