Petered-out Purse

My sweet Sis, Michelle, gave me back the infamous Coach purse, when mine from AuntSherry  petered-out, back in November.

I love this purse.   Not because it’s a Coach, I don’t care about that, but it’s the perfect size, and shape, and color!!

A REAL Coach purse! (Big deal!)


And now, dun Dun DUN: it’s petered-out too!    Poor petered-out purse!!   A moment of silence please.

I ignored the stains inside.

Yuck! Now you know my secret shame. I’m a slob. (World’s worst kept secret, I know.)

I ignored the corners that were worn off.

cut and dried corner- needs to go


But, I can’t ignore the zipper breaking!    No!   I really can’t take it anymore!!         Even though I still kept on using it while the threads frayed more, and more, and more….   But when you can no longer ZIP the zipper??     It’s time to say buh-bye.    As hard as it may be, and it’s really hard!!     I have to “p word” it.    I don’t wanna say the word in front of it.    I would hurt its feelings.   Oh, okay, I’ll spell it then.   P-u-r-g-e.   There, ya happy now?    Good thing it can’t read!!

See my finger sticking thru there?? Yeah, not so much working any more.


So, I had to make up my mind to throw it awayget rid of it , let it goooooo.     That was really hard for me!   It’s been a good friend, and general carry-all for both of us, for years!

Now, where do I dispose of the body??    It’s certainly not trash!   But, if even I won’t use it, then it can’t be donated!!   Maybe recycling??   Or, do I cremate it, and carry its ashes to spread around the outside of the Coach store in Orlando???   Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Memorial: Melinda’s & Michelle’s mauve money-bag.

  1. I hear you on this one. It’s hard to say goodbye to old handbags. I had several, okay a box full. I had a box full plus the ones that wouldn’t fit in the box and the one I was using. I got rid of all of them! Not all at once but over a year and a half they went. And the ones that could not be donated? I butchered. I rescued all the re-usable hardware, the rings, the magnets, the buckles. So I should probably purge all those bits too but it’s a start, and it takes up far less room! So if it helps you go right ahead and chop those handles off and use those pretty silver rings for something else.

  2. I observed a moment of silence for your purse. I know it is hard to let go of things we love. I should do this post with my favorite pair of shoes. The soles are falling off and you can see my toes through the top and they are not sandals. Have not worn them in years but they were perfect!
