Little Things

So I was cleaning out my purse this morning - and balancing the check book and I thought of a fun little post.  What's inside of your purse?  

I carry several little special things.....they have been in every bag I have ever owned. No matter where I go I carry them with me.

One of them is my grandma's rosary. I keep it in an old film container.  It's pink pearly and lovely.  It's pretty darn special to me - for one it reminds me of that great lady and also reminds me to pray. 

Next is a buckeye.  Yep.  I found it walking in the woods with my family one fall.  We used to just drive down to the bottom farm and meander around the woods and along the creek.  My brother and sisters would look for antlers, or sticks nawed on by beavers.  We would follow deer trails and look for mussel shells along the creek banks.  It was a lot of fun.  We found a buckeye tree and I kept one of them.  I've been told they are lucky?  I have been very fortunate in life so maybe it's true.

Red lipstick.  I've been fascinated with lipstick since I was small. There is a photo of me when I was very young with it smeared all over my face.  War paint like.  I don't wear it very often - just when I feel ubber confident.

A devotional scapular - it was given to me my parents when I made my first communion.  It's another thing I like to carry with me. Especially since I am on the road a bit.   I didn't start carrying it around regularly until I went on my first plane ride.  To say I was a little nervous was an understatement.  So I put it in my purse and away we went. 

If you look in my wallet you will also find photos of my family. Just cause .

That's a small peak into my purse.  What things do you carry around with you?


  1. I don't carry a purse. Never have. I would just loose it. I take my wallet when I want to by something. Mostly I use hubbys credit card! Works for me! :)

  2. I remember finding buckeyes when I was little! My babysitter had a tree in her yard and her son and I spent hours cracking open the spiky shells with our bikes and then tried to sell them at a yardsale we had so many! Lol! I usually don't carry around too many little things, but I do have a hankering for a new purse!

  3. Actually my purse is in dire need of a good cleaning. It is full of old receipts and papers and just "stuff". My wallet is huge and overstuffed with all the many cards needed in today's world. I never can find a pen, cause it's always at the bottom. I try to have a least one small notebook, usually my cell phone and keys, and sometimes even chocolate. I used to have photos of my kids in my wallet, but don't think I do right now. Some things really need to change!

  4. Just found this and it cracked me up, because my monster bag is so darned heavy, and I have no idea why! I'm a little afraid of dumping it out...who knows what may be lurking in the bottomless bag. Reminds of Mary Poppins bag...it's got everything, (I think). Aloha
