From My Readers Friday: Patchwork Pillows

From OhMyVera! reader Andrea: I had some older Vera bags that I had to replace with the wonderful newer ones but I didn't want to "lose" those former great patterns. So...I had my cousin who sews cut them out and make two pillows out of them! Now, I can enjoy my former Vera patterns and have another special Vera something in my room.

I think that this a great way to keep a piece of your older bags that might be a little too worn to carry anymore. Thanks for sharing Andrea!

Moving - Still Unpacking

Posting has been a little light...I moved to a new place and I still don't have a wireless internet connection and I don't like sitting 3 feet away from the modem with this short ethernet cable they gave me.  Hopefully will have it all straightened out tomorrow and can get back to posting more regularly! 

Here is a picture of some of my Vera packed up to move.  I found a big bag that opens like a trunk and it held a lot of bags!  The duffel bags came in handy for moving clothing!

Selling on Ebay - Plum Crazy Tote & Pink Elephant Pleated Tote

I decided to sell a couple of bags.  Sunday I mentioned the totes that I picked up at the Spring 2013 preview, well three of them got purchased at the 'Buy it now' price, but the fourth (Plum Crazy) had enough action bidding that the 'Buy it now' price was dropped by ebay.  The auction ends Aug 25, 201220:54:32 PDT.  Check out the auction by clicking here

Up next is a Pink Elephant Pleated Tote that I purchased and never used.  These are really hard to find because Vera Bradley only made them for a short time.  This is a retired color and style.  Pink Elephant is one of the Vera Bradley Breast Cancer Foundation colors.  I started the bidding out at 99 cents! You can click here to check out the auction.  Auction ends Aug 27, 201218:33:07 PDT.

If you have any questions about ebay, just let me know!

Vera Bradley Spring 2013 In Store Preview - Slideshow

Vera Bradley currently is previewing the Spring 2013 colors at select Vera Bradley stores.  Yesterday I was able to go to one of the stores and check out the new colors.  I can't tell you how excited I am about ALL of these colors.  They are so beautiful in person and I would carry all of these! 
The new colors are Jazzy Blooms, Go Wild, Midnight Blues & Plum Crazy. 
Check out the video below for a slide show of the prints.  It includes photos of the inside prints. 
And I had to pick something up for myself, so I exchanged a Grand Traveler that I received in Camellia for one in Jazzy Blooms.  I LOVE it!! 
I also decided to sell the totes that I picked up on ebay for those of you that arent close to a Vera Bradley store.  You can check out my ebay link to check out the totes.  The auctions end Saturday, August 25th...unless they all sell with the 'buy it now' option.  Click here to check it out.

Check out a few of the photos that they have posted on the Vera Bradley Japan Facebook page and check out the link for even more photos!

Va Va Bloom Nails

I spent all weekend moving my stuff and helping a friend who was also moving. We decided to treat ourselves to manicures since we were a little beat up from the weekend. After mine were done the color reminded me of Va Va Bloom! The phone cover seems a little muted, but I love a bright pink like this Strawberry Margarita OPI polish!

Too Many Catalogs!

This week I am packing so that I can move into a new place next week. Last time moved I had to toss a bunch of Vera Bradley shopping bags, this time I think I am going to toss all these catalogs! I can't keep moving them around!

Cupcakes Pink Large Backpack from Craigslist

I bought a Cupcakes Pink Large Backpack this morning that I found on Craigslist! It is New without tags. The woman's daughter got it as a present and never used it. Such a great find! Now I just need to decide if I should keep it or sell it.

Upcoming Vera Bradley - Part of Fall 2012

Here is a picture that a friend shared with me from a catalog that she picked up at her local Vera Bradley.  You can see a couple of the new Vera Bradley key chains...there will also be a bird one...and the red micro fiber!  I dont know if the micro fiber is coming out August 30th, but my guess is that we will have to wait a couple of weeks.  It sure is pretty though!
