Green Bag Lady, 40000Bags_4_2017

Earth Day + 40,000 Bags + Bag #40,000

Happy Earth Day! What are you doing to celebrate? I'm giving out bags at a local grocery store. Yippee! Here at Green Bag Lady we are especially excited since we have given away over 40,000 bags all over the world. Whaaaat? It's craziness. I thought I would make a couple hundred when this project started and it just keeps growing. In fact, we have just added New Zealand to our chapter list this week. I'll tell you more about Bagette Olive in the near future.

To celebrate Earth Day, this planet and all the great things the earth gives us we are giving away 20 Hawaiian floral bags. A woman in my neighborhood gave me all this fabric. So fun, so festive, so let's celebrate! We have 20 of these great bags to give away. AND one of them will be #40,000!!!!

Blast from the past. Valdevia, Chile from my sabbatical trip 2011.
Fascinating.

Good tips!

Eye candy.

To make.

To eat.

To sew. So cute!

I know my kids are older, but I really want to make these again this year. (remember?)

Friday, Friday, Friday. I finally have all the prom dresses out of my sewing room. YAY! Now, I just have to tackle the other projects that have been patiently waiting for those dresses to go away. Little Man has volleyball tomorrow. His team won all 6 games last weekend. Wahoo! May see a play with Big Girl tomorrow night. Then, meeting my ladies to make bags on Sunday. You? XOXO--Teresa

Cat in the Bag

I got this cute postcard from Bagette Barbara who lives in Washington. Love mail, love the kitty, love the bag! Thanks Barbara. :) Teresa


Florida Bags!

I use my bags ALL the time!!!

I got the black and white "bonus" bag (thank you so so much) which is this incredible fabric for cold items and produce. So in love with it  👍 I also used it to transport Easter dinner yesterday lol. This bag is perfection  thank you again.

Happy Easter!

You should be proud of me for surviving last weekend. Prom, prom dresses, after prom and Easter all rolled into one. Whew. It was crazy, but nice.

Table set, ready for guests using my grandmother's pink rose sprinkled china.
 We did use this natural Easter egg dye and it was amazing! Super rich colors. I was very impressed.
 What's Easter without tulips?
 And, deviled eggs of course. One of my favorites!
 Look at the desserts that showed up! Oh my.
Such pretty girls all decked out for prom.
 Big Girl and her date. Heart.
 I love this girl so much. I will miss her something stupid next year.
I hope you had a lovely, wonderful, blessed, fun weekend! Teresa

My friend Kim and her Green Bag Lady bag! LOVE!
Ha!!

So cute.

I don't have time for my own natural dyes this year so opted for this.

Again, if I had time, these would be so cute! Next year…

Speaking of eggs, I could SO own one of these.

This is my kind of post.

As I was walking into the grocery store yesterday I saw someone carrying a bag I made. I then realized it was my friend (and tennis partner) Kim. What does it say about me that I noticed the bag first?? Ha. I made her pose for me with said bag. Good job Kim! I'm still barely keeping my head above water over here. Hoping tennis this morning will help relieve some stress. It's going to be a PACKED weekend too. Tonight is all about After-Prom set up. Tomorrow Little Man has 2 volleyball games, then it's prom pics and church. And, of course Sunday is Easter. Whew. Wish me luck! Teresa

Snack + Drowning

I'm just going to say, if you are not snacking on cashew butter nestled in celery dusted with unsweetened coconut flakes, you are missing out my friend.

There will be light posting here this week. I'm drowning in prom dresses in need of alterations AND somehow I volunteered to help with the After Prom festivities at Big Girl's school not remembering it would coincide with the dress drowning. Ugh.

Hope your head is safely above water. XOXO--Teresa

Signs of Spring FREEBIE!

What are the signs of spring in your neighborhood right now? We have flowering trees and daffodils popping up everywhere. Love! When I lived in Nashville, we would get quite a few butterflies in our back yard. I knew spring was really here when they started fluttering by. We have 20 lovely butterfly bags to give away. Who wants one??
