Raindrop Grocery Bag

New bag...new design.
The bottom is wider to fit more into it, yet you can't really tell until you put something in the bag.

Purple Pizazz

So it all started today with this bag I made.. (it's a deep purple)

and it took me back to when I was a kid again. I remembered being in Boston, MA with family. We weren't there on a happy occasion but I won't go into all of that. What I thought about was this store in Faneuil Hall Marketplace Boston, MA called Purple Pizazz. It's a little shop where everything they sell is purple! I bought a pair of purple sunglasses that reminded me of the thick black rimmed glasses that my grandpa wore. I was thrilled with the little bag they put them in, it had writing on it about how to know if you're a purple person.

You are a purple person if: 

You are imaginative, sensitive, artistic and sophisticated. You have noble ideals and a keen appreciation of the cultural.
You are alert, demanding, foresighted, confident, resourceful, spontaneous and highly independent.
You take delight in the beautiful, the gracious, the sensitive, but maintain an attitude of critical appraisal.
In love you seek to attain a magical quality and refuse to settle for anything less.
You refuse to be "swept-off your feet" unless genuineness and integrity can be absolutely ascertained.
You are active in the support of things you believe in, and are concerned with the pursuit of truth and other human values.
You take chances and believe that you must do so to make the most of what life has to offer.
Purple is an exclusive color, mystical in quality, blending the two extremes of the spectrum, red & blue. Traditionally, purple represents splendor, dignity, royalty, rank & wealth.
Purple is a unique color, and it is truly a unique individual who holds it dear.
