{ a-tisket a-tasket } my yellow summer basket

as you may have noticed from my copious costume posts, i’m mostly an itty-bitty-bag kind of girl, who prefers to carry just the essentials. however, for super-busy days when i really do need to bring my whole life (and/or my dog) around town with me, this colorful crocodile number has become my go-to. yes, bunny fits very comfortably (and adorably!) inside:

on a related (to-this-picture) note, say hello to my new marble + syroco entry table/shelf. picked this puppy up for $10 at brimfield last month. not bad, eh?

    Carrying dogs in purses is harmful for your dog… it prevents them from socializing and stresses them out. Not good! Dogs have legs. They don't belong in purses. Who are you? Paris Hilton?

    $10??? A total steal Kelly! Did you do some DIY painting to it as well??

    I vote for a future bunny sighting in the croc purse! Pretty please??

    Peace. Love. LOL!

    Love the new marble + syroco entry table/shelf – what a great find. I love handbags though whenever possible I like to go without one. I don't know why but it feels kind of liberating not to have to carry a bag with you sometimes. =)

    I'm really disappointed to see you wearing crocodile skin… I really believe wearing animal skins is not necessary anymore, especially when it comes to such non-essentials as purses. I wish more bloggers would show sensitivity to that – you love your dog, why not show love towards other animals?

    You make everything look so glamourous. Love it.

    Re: Crocodile skin and disappointment mentioned above. Anon, just so you know, it's not actual croc skin. It's embossed to look like croc skin. If you have a problem with leather overall, that's another story.

    Thanks for the info, Brie – I did not know that and it was not mentioned in the post.
