It's not my birthday--yet; but I'm not complaining

Sometimes, I am really surprised and that happened on Saturday while celebrating my mom’s birthday. She had just opened her last gift and during the interim, many of us were chatting quietly with the loved one sitting next to us. My youngest sissie jumped to her feet and glided from the room, only to return in a snap, and deposited a pink gift bag in my lap. She said, “For your birthday.”
My birthday is a month away. I asked, “Do you want me to open it now or save?” 
“Now.”
I had an idea what the bag contained as two black handles stuck out of the tissue paper. So I joyfully stuck my hand inside and removed an envelope. The card was glittery and the number of my birthday--a milestone--was all over it. I grinned for I had named this birthday the last birthday ever. “From now on,” I’d decreed on other occasions, “I will only be celebrating Fun Days.”
Everyone had laughed.
My hand went in the depths again and I removed this beauty.

Hi Movie Star lover! You are so welcome. I have a couple of the wooden box bags, one decorated with jewels and papier mache. I always get compliments. My sister bought one with cowboys and cows on it and is adorable.

Thanks for the tip Vicki! Just had a browse through some Enid Collins bags on Etsy and I must say I just love them. Especially the wooden box bags! Might have to treat myself to one of the cat designs come payday :)

Hi, Movie Star lover! Have you checked out Enid Collins bags? They were made in Texas by Enid and sold through Neiman Marcus. All handmade. And fun! Thanks for stopping.

Hi, Wilmaaaa! I do feel lucky. My sissie said she saw it and knew hands down it would be the perfect gift. It is.

Hi, Carla! Thank you so much for visiting with me. I love I can pack a book or kindle or a small needlepoint project in it too.
