Told you

It's an addiction. I absolutely cannot get away from the birdie. Actually, I was planning to complete this bag without any birds but it just looked too plain and unfinished to me once I had it together. To top it off, I had a scrap of the birdie fabric sitting in a bin next to me and I think it was tweeting at me....or was that the breeze hissing through one of the new holes in my ceiling? Hmmm, I guess we'll never know.

I used the last of the birdie fabric and coordinating circle on this bag so if you likes it, you needs to buy it.

Lastly, I feel like I have to share this...I used Christmas money from my grandma to splurge on Bare Escentuals makeup for myself. It arrived yesterday and I LOVE it! I had actually just done my face 15 minutes before the UPS man dropped it off, but I washed all my make up off so I could play with the new stuff. Then, after my shower last night, I put it on again. Mostly because I wanted to play with the application a little more but I think partly because I love the way it looks. And the brushes are awesome. I've never owned an expensive makeup brush and these feel so nice on my face. I'd like to brush my whole body with them but I believe that would cause some nasty cross contamination issues. TMI?

Even my husband noticed a difference and agreed that it looks wonderful. I just bought this basic kit from Sephora along with some blush/all over color and lipstick. Now I really want some of their glittery eye shadows but first I have to find a place to wear it. And the money. And somehow getting new makeup has made me think about growing out my hair just a little. Still keeping a short cut, but more like a short shag. Anyone have some good short shag pics to share?

Um . . what is that above comment? LOL! I got a weird one the other day on one of mine that was in a different LANGUAGE and I deleted it! LOL!

Anywho . . yay for you on splurging on yourself!!! I need new makeup too, but you have to have money first for that! LOL!

The purse looks great!

I love the birdie purse!! My sister was just gushing about the Bare Escentuals makeup to me. I will definitely have to check it out.

I LOVE Bare Escentuals! I've been using it for years. I never wear anything but foundation though (and mineral veil).

Oh yah, and I love the birdie purse too!

I am new to "blogland" and have really enjoyed your creativity, sense of humor & inspiration! On the subject of birdie obsession, Anna Maria Horner was showing a sneak of her new fabric and right there on top was a big ole birdie!! It looks really fun - I immediately thought it would look great on one of your bags! Keep up the good work!
