my bag

This is my new favorite bag.  It's a wall calendar from 1982, you know the ones that grandma had hanging on her wall?  I got it at a thrift store for 50 cents.  The strap is one of my grandpa's ties.  My sister and I raided his closet when we visited this summer!  It's lined and is basically reversible.  There are also 2 pockets on the inside.







It just so happens that I found 8 more of these calendars at the Junk Bonanza! score!  A special one was for a friend, and the rest are waiting to be turned into all sorts of things.
