Bagettes Giveaway

Medium Cosmetic Case by BaguettesYou knew I couldn't go too long without mentioning handbags, right? I've kept quiet about them for awhile but things like graduation and Mother's Day are coming up so even if you're flush with bags I bet there's someone on your list who can always use a cute little purse.

Bagettes is a shop where you can easily upload a photo and have it put on a bag. Color or black and white, it doesn't matter you just upload the photo the same way you would to Flikr or Photoshop or something. Pick out the bag you'd like and presto--you've got a personalized tote or handbag or cosmetic case that would be good for all sorts of things.

You could use it as a Mother's Day gift or a as a bridal gift or a unique graduation present. You can order totes, photo purses, wallets--some even in suede--but give them a peek and see what you think. I think there are definite possibilities here.

This week's giveaway winner will receive the chance to make up their own personal cosmetic bag with their own photo courtesy of You'll get to see for yourself how pretty these bags could be. Fun, huh?

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Monday go to the giveaway entry form on this page and enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.

This giveaway is open to all readers!


LeatherheadsAndrew and I went to see Leatherheads tonight--the new George Clooney movie about 1920s football? I have to say that I'd probably to pay to watch George Clooney read the newspaper so I don't know that it mattered what the movie was about but it turned out to be pretty fun.

If you liked him in O Brother Where Art Thou? (funniest movie ever in my opinion) then you'll like him in this--he's master of the quirky frantic surprised facial expressions. Now that I think about it there are several guys in the cast of Leatherheads that were in the cast of the other movie as well.

It's got some funny parts, though too many of them are in the previews (I hate it when they do that) and opposite George Clooney is "that guy from The Office" (I found out tonight that he actually has a real name--John Krasinski) who is highly entertaining and makes a good debut. I'm not as big on Ms. Zellweger (you can't miss her she's the one wearing bright red for the entire movie) and to cast Jonathan Pryce as a bad guy has been done to death but overall I'd give it a B. Catch it as a matinée like we did and you'll get your money's worth.

I am all about bags right now. In the middle of posting about my latest creations (had to take a break of course).

Gma would love a bag with photo ops of grandkids!

Daisy said...

Since Clooney's character is loosely based on Green Bay Packer Johnny "Blood" McNally, I'm looking forward to seeing this with my Packer fan family!

Marsha said...

I would love to win! Parts of Leatherheads was filmed in my town and in the upstate of SC. I never got to see George one time :(

This was filmed in my sister-in-law's town. My niece got to watch some of the filming, but she didn't see George either. He doesn't know it, but George is my soulmate because we have the same birthday (he's a year older). I love sports movies, even though I rarely watch sports.

I'm going to take your advice and see it in the afternoon. I love George Clooney. He's so charming and "O Brother Where Art Thou?" was phenomenal!
