Delectable Handbags! #FolksyFriday

Folksy Friday again today. Not quite sure what to do so I am off to look for inspiration.....
Back again! Just logged in to Folksy when inspiration struck. Bags! As my most recent handbag, that was a gift, seems to be on the way out I am going to look for bags. In the process I may well find the very bag I need. I am funny about my handbags, it has to be just right. No preconceived ideas, I`ll know it when I see it. It has to be something a bit different and the colour has to be right. For years I always had black handbags, serviceable and long lasting, these days it has to make a statement too. After all, a handbag is like an extension of ourselves, especially if you always carry one. I do and it has to have everything I need or might need in it. That means it has to be big enough for all my stuff and hard wearing too as well as looking good. I`ve always bought bags in shops in the city before which means you see the same ones elsewhere but this time I shall indulge myself with a bag from Folksy. I love all the bags shown below but am definitely looking more than twice at the fabulous one down the bottom from Lynda of Bags of Swank. Temptation is a terrible thing to overcome, especially when tempted by so many.
I went to the cinema again yesterday, took the older two grandchildren to see Cowboys and Aliens. We all loved it, even though some bits were gruesome. Naturally we ate too much, so much that my grandson came out saying he had a tummy ache. Ooops!!!
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

So what do you carry in your bag,
do you fill it to full and make it sag?
Or is it big enough for phone and purse,
you find carrying more is much worse?
Tell me please, what is your style,
what really makes you smile?
Let your bag say who you are
and then it will take you far.
Let the colour make you feel good
as anything always should.
The style should hold comfort and ease
and very definitely should please.
How about feathers or bows
or smooth silk and satin that flows.
Quilted, velvet and felted too
so many tempting bags for you.
They look so delectable and divine
I want them all to be mine,
Pinks, purples and even butterflies
I can already hear the sighs.
Blues, black, red and green
aren`t they the best you`ve seen.
And each shop has so much more
so many delicious bags galore!
