Bag Joy!...

Well nearly...
Paypal STILL haven't refunded me my money, on my non delivered bag from a few weeks ago, and the "lady" who is probably a man, has not returned any emails..near enough 10 emails by now...but enough of that Grrrrr...I have purchased a bag..a vintage one...inspired by my love of MULBERRY...



Yes here she is the rather popular Alexa Chung...No offence Alexa..I'm not really that interested in you, to be honest I don't really know what you do..but you were a bag muse to the head designer at Mulberry, and wow what a bag...

what a price though...around £750.....ridiculous!

Any way this was me in the bathroom tonight...cleaning and treating my new £30 vintage satchel!



It was a bargin, and almost the same size as my beloved Alexa...



I bought it from a vintage shop on ebay...don't get me wrong, I have no problem with second hand things..infact I LOVE vintage old things..but if you are selling something on ebay..can you clean out the bag from old makeup first? It looked like someone had spilt old face powder from the 1970s on the inside!



Fear not though, I cleaned it and treated it...its now looking like a new bag,, but I have to let the restoring cream do its job over night so the dye soaks in..

then yum, a lovely vintage bag...

In the mean time, I'm trying to chill out as much as possible before my visitors this weekend and the great 'DIY' mission next week..and I'll document it here...

I hope you all don't mind though...I live in a normal, small terrace house, with no paddock and ponies...its going to be a very everyday account of decorating, mess and stress...

Happy Tuesday!
Love Sam

Great vintage bag!

You should try to go to Paypal and see if they have a dispute resolution process.
