Show & Tell: What’s in my wallet?

Well, purse, really.

For no good reason, I’ve dumped my purse, arranged the contents so that they fit in the viewfinder’s frame, and snapped a photo.

Purple much?
Animal print much?

I found the purse itself at a Chocolate Fair (does it GET any better!?). It called my name and forced me to buy it, seeing as how it was an animal print AND had purple accents. Seven months later, I found the smaller matching purse-let (right), in which I keep my camera, my pinktooth (the teeny-weeny thing in front) and bloggy cards.

My wallet, made from the elusive purple snipe-snake, is on the left. I carry two cell phones, my purple personal one, and my plain work one.

My keys are attached to a yellow kubotan, a self-defense gizmo that gives me a “don’t eff with me” air when I carry it according to the training that came with it.

The red rectangle is a Swiss Army kit that has stuff McGyver would drool over. But it’s missing the nail file, which was confiscated at an airport checkpoint once when I forgot to leave it at home.

Lip balm, eye drops, a nail file, a crinkled up band-aid, three wet-wipes, and a bottle of flower essences (in case of illness) belong in the Singing Butler bag I got at a museum in Boston.

Finally, a purse-light and a comb.

Want the truth? This came out of my purse, too.

Runny-nose kids much? (And the purse’s attached coin bag.)

So. What’s in your wallet? If you post about it (next week’s Show & Tell?), come back and give me your link so I can snoop.

See the cool stuff my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell.

  1. Oh my gosh, I’m not sure if I want to empty my purse, I may not get everything back in it!

    I won it at the Tropicana in Las Vegas in 2008 (it came from Kohls). Hmmm, not sure if my came could take the picture, I’d need a wide panaramic lens.

    I like your purse and wallet though. Very cute.

  2. I had a purse like that (except in green) submitted as evidence recently (it was from a robbery) – good thing you have the kubotan!

    My purse has lots and lots of paper – receipts mostly, but also notes and other stuff. The used tissues usually end up in the cup holders in the car. 🙂

  3. AH HA!

    Heeeyy, I saw one JUST like that at a Girls Only play in Denver (but I think the one I saw had a toothbrush in it, as well..)


  4. LOLOL….I love it…especially the purple cell phone that has your logo on it.

    My purse has way more trash beyond those runny-nose tissues you found….mostly bills and ATM slips from whenever!

  5. My purse contents would scare you (the sheer amount of crap in it).

    I love the purse and the purple.

  6. I don’t know what a pinktooth or a bloggy card is, ancient much? man I need to catch up.

    I don’t carry a purse or a wallet. I tried, it’s so not me even if a part of me really wants to be able to rock an over sized bag.

    The center console in my car is an entirely different story, however.

  7. so THAT’s where your kids get it from!?!

    love it. especially the purple weebles phone and the wad of tissues, you know, just in case.

  8. Hey! One can never have too much purple OR animal print. :)-

    My “purse” these days is a diaper bag. But at least it’s cool looking!

  9. i never carry a purse, which is funny because I have tons of them. My husband gets so mad because I make him carry everything in his pockets. I do like the animal print bag though, so cute.

  10. Love the purse and I am a purple gal as well.

    And I can have almost as many tissues in my purse–and just for me!

  11. Ok. I feel better since you showed us the snot rags. I was wondering — no candy wrappers, no tissues, no junk? I love that your accourtements are color coodinated. I always lament that my stuff doesn’t show enough flair.

  12. I guess I never really how much you like purple. Duh! You got a camera? I need to get in the review biz. I hate carrying a purse. Until I became a mom I would do anything not to carry a purse. First of all I inherited the leave purse many places gene from my mom. Maybe I should post about this…

  13. How fun! I might have to copy you next week, and will keep you posted if I do.

    I too enjoyed seeing all of your matching stuff. It was also neat seeing someone with purple accents. I love green (as evidenced by my car, cell phone, and iPod among other things,) but don’t really have a lot of green items in my purse.

    Fun Show&Tell! 🙂

  14. I LOVE your cellphone! And the Kleenex . . . that looks similar to the wad I pulled out of my coat pockets last week – that’s winter in Colorado for you!

  15. That’s awesome! I’m going to share my purse this weekend w/ you. Love the purple, b/c I probably have equal amount or more of pink in mine. 😉

  16. I believe you’ve already seen the inside of mine thanks to the curious (and purse-loving) Tessa.

  17. Love it! I always have so much trash in my purse… I’m a fellow purple lover! Love, love, love that wallet!

  18. Love the purple especially your cell phone!

    I also have to admit to not knowing what a pink tooth is. :S
