Whats in your Bag2.jpg
That is me with my green bag.

I smiled when I saw the contest theme about what´s in the bag. Thanking the initiator @ladiesofhive for such a fun challenge. Thanks to @brittandjosie for inviting me to join here.

I love bags and I have a few back home... Since we travelled to Spain in October, I only brought along my bigger green bag plus a crossbody bag which also happens to be green, it is just a coincidence that the 2nd bag is the same color. The latter is already more than 10 years old.

Whats in your Bag3.jpg

The title image is about the carry-all bag which is very practical, I simply put all the things I need when I go down to the coast and do my errands.

I found this bag at a Sunday flea market in Vienna, the lady who was selling this had 3 colors to choose from ...... red white and green. Once I saw the green one, I fell in love with it because it was nicely shaped. The Stall owner showed me the inside of the bag and it was perfect, particularly for shopping.

My Important contents....

I have labeled in the above photo the items I always bring and put inside the bag. I have two smartphones, the first on the left side is my Viennese phone , the 2nd is my Spanish phone. I never forget the lip balm as well as lipstick and compact powder. I also carry with me my Covid Pass... nobody checks the Covid Pass in restaurants. Oh of course mask and yeah, I always carry with me a shopping bag made of cloth since I avoid plastic bags from the shop. I also carry with me a set of masks. I also bring along a ball pen to write note if it occurs.

I like the leathery feel of the bag, it is soft inside but could still stand on its own. The hook above helps to secure the bag contents in case the bag falls down.

I normally buy my bags from a shop and I am not fond of buying branded items. I am already retired from the corporate world and mostly dressed nowadays in casual or sports clothing.... so what would I need an elegant bag for?

I Love Crossbody Bags ....

This leather bag was bought in a shop near my former office in the heart of the city of Vienna. My officemate and me waited for the sale and then we bought one each.

This maybe old already, but it´s the best bag I ever use since more than 10 years now. It´s sleek in design but it´s very durable.

I am inviting @sisterhood2 to join the Challenge... Until next time, I`ll see you around

You've got to have all the contents organized!
Thanks for sharing, @Mers.
Good luck with the contest.

Friendships are bonds between two or more people who want to engage with one another. It involves having mutual interest in each other’s thoughts, feelings and experiences. Friendships work on reciprocity of trust, respect, emotional support and admiration.
Let's hope that Ladies of Hive is where you develop lasting friendships.

You posted a very lovely comment about friendships and I thank you for that @silversaver888. Indeed, true friendship is very important like sharing experiences so others could learn from us. One of the most important things in friendship is moral support when one is down, guide those persons to maintain their sanity. Unfortunately, I did not have the luck to have a sister ( with 5 brothers) so I envy those who have one. I have many girlfriends with whom I am connected over 40 years and until now we are still seeing each others and every time we make get-togethers, the fondness to each other grow more.

Many many thanks and have a great weekend!

You received 5 LADY(LOH) tokens for entering the Ladies of Hive contest.

Please note that since our LOH token is still so new, that it will be worth more if we HOLD them for a bit before trying to sell them. Some have been trying to sell them immediately after receiving them, but holding them for a bit will help them to increase in value! We are working behind-the-scenes to try to keep the price stable, but the "sell orders" are hampering the stabilization of the price of this new token. Please hold on to your tokens. Thank you! 🙂

Tenga en cuenta que, dado que nuestro token LOH todavía es tan nuevo, valdrá más si los MANTENEMOS por un tiempo antes de intentar venderlos. Algunos de ustedes han estado tratando de venderlos inmediatamente después de recibirlos, ¡pero retenerlos por un tiempo les ayudará a aumentar su valor! Estamos trabajando entre bastidores para tratar de mantener estable el precio, pero las "órdenes de venta" están obstaculizando la estabilización del precio de este nuevo token. ¡Considere esperar! ¡Gracias! 🤗

Thank you so much for the LADY tokens. Oh yeah, I am used to hodling tokens so this is not new to me. Am currently hodling Alt tokens as well as newcomer tokens in Exchanges. Infact, I seldom visit the Hive-engine and sometimes surprised if the rewards were still pending and for claiming.
I wish MORE POWER to the #LadiesofHive Community.

Hi dear @mers, so thankful you also joined. I love love love peeking in all your bags. That first square one is great, great is really a statement and i think it will look lovely with so many outfits because its THERE.
Great that you also showed us you and the bag, i love people who do the work for this assigment. Two phones, probably because the Viennese phone doesnt work in spain. And the fact they don’t check the covid pass is weird but we see that here to

My Viennese phone has a roaming function so it works in Spain. The trick was I just had to adjust it before leaving Vienna for Spain so that the cost is also the same as if your calling a local number. Calls from my prepaid Spanish mobile is even more expensive than that Viennese call so that sometimes I even had to use my Austrian cp to call local phones... Lol!

I used to go with my mom shopping for those quality bags when on sale as a kid and keep myself busy while she's checking what's best for her, just like you, she can't go out without bags full of armaments, lol, sometimes I told her, why not put our house in that bag?

I bring along a sports bag or a rucksack when I wanted to go groceries with my scooter. The rucksack is handier to have, just put at your back and ride the scooter...

Aw, I have not tried the scooter, I ´m like as if I will fall off just like unbalancing with the bike. But I have tried shopping a small quantity of groceries with my bike. It is not as comfortable o f course but a basket at the back helps a bit.

Ah, yes! Green is my favorite color after decades of it being purple and before that, blue. You are very organized and prepared!

I can relate to this comment on many levels.

Sadly I only had one sibling, a brother, who passed away suddenly back in 2004. He'd never married or had children though he was engaged once to a girl we both knew in college. Are you like me? I have a small but loyal group of "sisters" added through the years. For me it's always about quality not quantity @mers

Huh, it seems we have something in common... I am the only girl in a family of 5 brothers, I am in the middle or the 4th. Mom wanted a girl after giving birth to 3 sons, then they decided to have a girl ...then I came as fourth, but then, they tried to have a girl once more but did not succeed until two more brothers were born, hehehe. Cancer seems to be the illness in our clan, three of my brothers passed-away within the span of ten years then followed by my Dad.

How I wish I had a sister to giggle with while growing up as a teenager , you know what I mean... But in the course of time I have many "sisters" with whom I am still in contact with since more than 40 years. Every time I fly for a visit in my home country the Philippines, it is always a riot and exciting. And even if they are all scattered worldwide, we still meet sometimes. You are surely a nice and lovely person inside and out my dear @ninahaskin. That I am sure of . Cheers "sister"!
