Berthalocks and the Three Purses…


Growing up…I used to watch…Fractured Fairy Tales…on…The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show…I suppose that’s what this is…kinda…sorta…

I promised…Bertha…when she got 100 stars on her Amazon Review Star Chart…that I would buy her a new pair of shoes…we all know that’s her favorite thing in life…

So…since she’s surpassed that number…and my high school reunion is coming up this weekend…we went shoe shopping…the only problem was…we couldn’t find the perfect pair of shoes no matter how hard we tried…and we tried really hard…

Not to be undone…she decided to settle on a purse… I bought one this summer that I loved…except…it’s really a bit…too big…everything tends to get into a jumbled mess in the bottom…and I’m forever digging for something which is embarrassing…and…it’s heavy…

With that in mind…we looked for something smaller…I was pleased with a cousin to the one I had…it was definitely lighter…looked good…Bertha…agreed and it was purchased…

And all was well…until we got home and started putting things in it…hmmm…it was just a smidge…too small…oh…it held the essentials…and it closed…but I had a feeling that it wouldn’t be long before it would be bulging at the seams…and unzipped…

Back to the drawing board…or mall in this case…where…Berthalocks…assures me…we will get it just right…and probably won’t get eaten by a bear…

Sounds good to me…

  1. LOL! Finding a purse that’s juuuuussstt right is a challenge! And wouldn’t you know it, I’ve been having the same struggle myself! I have one in the trunk of my car right now that I’m hoping will be the one! Good luck on your purse search!

    • Peggy…I’m definitely not surprised! I swear I think we share a brain…LOL! Hope you’ve found the one. I’m going to keep this one. It is a nice size and maybe it will help me keep the junk cleaned out! We’ll see.

  2. LOL love that you did write about the purses! I have both big and smaller purses, depending on the occasion. I recently looked for a big black one in my closet and realized I donated it. Darn it I could be using it right now LOL. I hope it went to a good home :) Okay now off to share this post on Twitter…

    • Thanks, Christy…I hate when I give something away and then miss it…LOL! But I’m sure your purse found a great home…and now…you get to find another one! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I do not like buying purses or shoes. I have something definite in mind and am never able to find what I want so … I have settled on Sack 1 and Sack 2 – a smaller version of Sack 1. I bought them on line through a charity site so I felt no guilt spending money on myself. They are both colorful with a long strap perfect for slinging and I’m always amazed how much stuff I can carry (although, with the larger one, I sometimes feel the need of a wagon to help drag it!).

    • Hi, Annie…welcome. I love that you have a Sack 1 and Sack 2…and can switch back and forth as you need to. I tend to load the bigger one too full and it’s hard to carry…I could use that wagon…or a pack mule! Have a great day!
