  16. Hi, Marsha. I love your leopard bag...every woman needs a little leopard in her wardrobe. I also am enamored with the last little brown purse on your shop's handbag page, but I cannot click on it! Today's post is beautiful. I want to move right into that library. Every bit of it is my taste. I wouldn't mind owning the bathroom stone sink either. Happy Sunday.

  17. Thank you for this Fun Handbag Give Away! Being from Neptune Beach Florida, I could use this for Tailgating at our NFL Jaguar Games! Although they do seem to be having a downswing year, when you're losing it's always fun to look trendy!
