Ten on Tuesday

Carole and Vicki were the two I saw today who divulged the contents of their handbags in Ten on Tuesday: 10 things you have in your pocketbook. I decided this one I could easily play along with and you'll figure out why when I explain what's there:

1. From the top clockwise you'll see a large zippered baglet with Autumn-hued cats on it. That's the bag that houses my pint-sized handcream, lipstick, pens, glass nail file and nail clippers. And yes, it's a Nana Sadie Rose baglet.
2. Next to that I have a hot pink small Moleskine I keep with me to jot notes, phone numbers and such in as needed.
3. A purple hair brush.
4. My purple wallet.
5. My Nana Sadie Rose purple pawprint keyfob (with keys to way too many things, but every one of them is necessary)
6. A small Nana Sadie Rose baglet that I carry my loyalty cards in
7. My Nana Sadie Rose coupon wallet (this carries more than just grocery coupons, I have store coupons and restaurant coupons and there's a slot for every type, as well as one for those I need for THIS next shopping trip).
8. My sunglasses case.
9. My business card case, a gift from my boss at Christmas and I love it more than the plain silver one I'd carried up until then.
10. Next to that is the rolled-up reusable shopping bag I carry so I always have one when I need it.

And yes, there is a "bonus" #11: the purse hanger my Dear Big Sister gifted each of us with Christmas before last to hang our Nana Sadie Rose bags from the restaurant table rather than setting them on the floor. I love it. I especially loved it even more when, after reading Peace and Plenty by Sarah Ban Breathnach, I learned that the Queen of England has an entire handbag coding system that she uses with her ladies in waiting when she's out. Hung from one side of the table it means one thing, from the other something else again, up on the table top means she's ready to leave, or swinging from the hook, she's enjoying herself and will stay a bit longer....

I adore that! Now you can imagine me giving the Queen's graceful wave from the elbow as I quietly wish you "Good-night!"
oh, the theme? Nana Sadie Rose, of course...and that Queen-thing. Totally the Queen thing!

You have a very organized purse!! I'm impressed :) I also love the image of the Queen and her handbag code; I will say, though, that I am congenitally incapable of putting a handbag on a table where I eat, after my nurse mother explained in great detail all the things that end up on the bottom of a bag... :)

Haha. I'm laughing at the Knitting Linguist's "nurse mother" comment -- having a retired nurse for a mother, myself. There are things I was really perfectly fine not even thinking about...

The Queen's handbag code is a hoot!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
