Memorial Purse in Honor of my Mom


Last week I flew into Chicago, joined my older sister on a flight to Houston to see our younger sister. My younger sister’s home flooded back in June while they were on vacation! Think Texas, June, six or so inches of standing water for a week in a house shut-up tighter than a drum. Not a pretty sight and an even worse smell.¬†Needless to say her house has been stripped down to the 2 x 4s. The insurance company has moved the four of them into a two bedroom apartment. Tight squeeze with the addition of my older sister and me for a week.

Last year about this time my older sister and I drove my mom down to Texas to visit my sister and her family. {I’d like to publicly thank @toddmccann for the best directions ever!} We lost our mom this past March so this trip was a bittersweet anniversay. While we were together we celebrated our mom’s birthday (9/27) by shopping for new lipstick and purses. Why? ¬†Because last year when we were all together in Texas my mom bought us all a new purse.

So here I present you with my new purse! It is black leather with silver studs! The two front pockets have very cool studded zipper pulls. Another more discrete zipper pocket on the back of the purse. The main body of the purse has great pockets and storage and the whole thing can be zipped shut! I’m a fan! What do you think? Kind of has a motorcycle feel, yes?

My new purse in memory of my mom.

  1. Love that purse! I bet your mom would approve of it too.

  2. Love it – definite motorcycle feel! And the more zippered pockets the better. What a great way for you guys to honor and remember your Mom! ~Cat

  3. I approve of the purse too. Granted, I’ve got little or no sense of style, so you can take that for what it’s worth. It’s definitely got a biker ***** feel to it. Not that you are one of those types.

    And as far as those directions go, apparently I gave you the wrong directions. I was supposed to send you to some friends of mine who were planning on robbing and carjacking you. Oh well. Maybe next time. ;-)

  4. Saw the purse up close and personal yesterday and it’s DEFINITELY a looker! Love all the pockets and zippers and especially the studs. Here’s to your mom and the celebration of her life!

  5. That is indeed a great bag, very bikey! And, a neat way to enjoy some memories of Mom!
