This, that and the other

Am I the only person on this planet who doesn't know what these are?  
I opened a box from my dear kids, K&K, and the first thing I came across was the funky green and orange thingie.  What in the world???!!!!  Is this some kind of notebook cover, journal cover, file cover???  The next package had a leather red, white and blue thingie, a leather one.  Very odd, I'm perplexed.  While I'm really taken with the designs and colors, I have no clue!  I know, I'm old.  I remember thinking I'll never get so old I can't change channels with the TV thingie, or program my microwave or use the Wii.  I'm keeping up with things.  And thingies.  Whatever they are.  But this?  Not the foggiest.  However!  I opened the third package, and there was this brown handbag.  Very nice, but really, so not me -- plain brown?!  But look!  There's something lumpy all around the top edges.  Round thingies.  You don't suppose....?  Would you just look at that!?!?!  You wrap the flat thingie around the bag, and the magnets hold it on.  Well, I never!!  I've seen organizers for the inside of the bag, so you just pull the stuff out of one bag and put it inside another.  But this, well, it's just a whole lot more than that!  You can get other covers, I understand.   So live and learn!  Everyone I know is familiar with it, but if you're one of those who doesn't know, it's a Miche bag.  Beautiful!  


And thank you, kiddos, for keeping me modern.  Since we've moved from the big cities, I guess it was bound to happen, I'm no longer with it :-)  But where would I be without all those marvelous thingies!


I didn't sew any bits and pieces this week, but I did quilt a donation quilt for a friend (and didn't take a picture).  No Whoop, Whoop! for me.  Oh well, go to Sarah's blog,  http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/ to see what others have been doing this week!

  1. Yep, I can still use the remote and the computer, etc. But there are a lot of thingies to keep up with. Some seem to make life more complicated...okay, don't tell anyone I said that. That really sounds old, doesn't it?!?Never saw a Miche bag before. Glad to be in the know!!

  4. I am so glad to know that I am not the only one that must describe new fangled things in these same terms {usually only I understand}.

    It's the gift that keeps on giving. I would anticipate more thingy covers to come!

    Happy Birthday!
    Thanks for visiting our blog & sharing a Whoop!!

  8. This was such a fun post!! The only reason that I know about them is my hair dresser sells them. But ya, I try to keep up with the "things" and "thingies" just like you. Glad you have another "thingie" to add to your list!
