Lesson #82 - Sometimes TRUE Love Requires A Fashion Statement

Have you ever loved something SO much that you just HAD to make a point about it??

That is the exact thought I had when I was at the grocery store a few months back. The woman in front of me in the checkout line was with her hubs...just standing around waiting for him to finish with paying for the groceries. Suddenly he realized that his credit card wasn't in his wallet...alas!!

Anyways - the point of the story is this...wifey, clearly frustrated, went to pull her wallet out of one of THESE:

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?! I totally freaked out when I saw her bag and just couldn't keep my damn mouth shut!! "Ohmigod!! Where did you GET your bag?!?!" This poor woman probably thought I was a psycho...but I just HAD to ask! SUPER cute, right???

I never got an answer...so I don't know if the woman in the grocery store got her bag from Rosha Merci'a...but I am going to venture to say that she did! These fabulous recycled wrapper purses and accessories are made from candy wrappers, potato chip/snack bags and ANY other food/drink wrappers you can think of!

From larger purses, like the Starbucks bag above, to smaller zipper pouches like this Coke example:

From a Mountain Dew purse to a Ramen Noodle pouch (chicken flavor, below):

M has been making wrapper purses and accessories since 2004 and I hope she continues to make them!! Want a custom piece...just come up with the wrapper(s) of your choice and I'm sure M would be thrilled to make a bag, wallet, clutch, key fob, or anything else for you!! I have yet to gather enough diaper packages for her to make me a diaper bag...but I will get there soon enough!!
