I Won!!

I won, I won, I won!


Well... sort of. Hehe!

I bid on an amazing handbag on eBay, and I won the auction!!! So exciting!!

But as Husband is fond of telling me, it's not really winning when you still have to pay.
Still a winner!
Always the practical one. HA!

Despite having to pay at the end, it is still incredibly exciting to win a bid on an item you are longing to own!

Like this fantabulous vintage wicker bag!


Such shimmering chrysanthemum, lucite loveliness! It's the perfect summer purse!




I love vintage labels!! So much history!!
It pairs perfectly with one of my newest vintage treasures- a bakelite mahjong bracelet!


I'd say I definitely won, in the style department at least! Ha!

  3. Love love love winning things on eBay. You know what's almost as addicting? Selling on eBay. When you get an item that has a million bids and you're not quite sure why and it sells for way more than you thought you'd ever get...exciting! I actually had to take a break from it because I couldn't stop, like seriously addicted ha ha

  5. That is seriously darling! Happiest congrats on winning, dear gal! I say it's winning no matter if you have to fork over some cash or not. You came out the victor in a situation with multiple people involved and by definition that makes you a winner.

    Have tons of fun with your awesome new bag!!!
