Love Bunkie #9

Hearts…Flowers…Candy, what’s not to love about Valentines Day? I remember when my girls were younger how much fun they had getting ready for their Valentines Day party at school, making the heart covered “mail boxes”, shopping for valentine cards and picking out the best ones for their special friends and of course a big one for the teacher. Cupcakes were made, little red and sliver kisses were attached to the envelopes of their valentine cards and then when the party was over, the fun they had reading the valentines that they received from their friends. It was all great fun; it made them feel special and loved. That is what I truly love about Valentines Day…it’s an opportunity to let others know how much you care and how special they are to you.

Now that my girls are in high school, valentine parties are a thing of the past. Still I love to make the day special for them and usually bake cupcakes topped with pink frosting and conversation hearts and get them a small gift of some sort. This year I have decided on picking up some of their favorite eye shadow, lip gloss, and of course the traditional “red and white xxoo socks”. Denise came up with a wonderful little Bunkie Bag which she christened “Love Bunkie #9”. Love Bunkie #9 is perfect to hold the gifts that I am picking up for them AND they will be able to use the bag as a little purse, or to carry their CD’s, their DVD’s, their IPod…and the list goes on and on and on! What a Simply Charming idea!

Wishing you all a Simply Charming Valentines Day!

My goodness How times Have Changed! this post was sitting waiting to be posted from 2009.  Enjoy!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Welcome to the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy Holidays!
There is nothing more fun that seeing family and friends during the holidays except...... giving  and receiving gifts!   This year at Simply Charming Bags we are doing the giving and you are the receiver!  As a proud Sponsor of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, we are giving away 2 sets of Accessory Bags in our 2 most popular coffee prints.  
These simply charming bags are an excellent size for craft supplies, cosmetics, gifts or a travel sewing kit, my favorite. They measure 9"x9" for the large and 7"x8" for the small. Fabulous size for small projects while waiting for sport practice to finish up or going to your favorite coffee shop and writing in your journal.

Each winner will receive 2! Keep one and gift one it's up to you or keep them both! 

Thank you for participating in the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! 

Happiest of Holidays to All!  Hugs, Denise Simply Charming Everyda…

Welcome Back it's so nice to see you!

I have so much to tell you about, but first, let's invite our friends to the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  There are lots of prizes and fabulous cards starting today, Friday, May 25 thru Friday, June1.

 These 3 happy Coffee Lovers are from a fabric line designed by our favorite stamp maker Bonnie Krebs of Art Impressions.  I was so tickled when I googled "coffee fabric" and this popped up!  I had just taken a class with Bonnie at our local Stamp Show and became totally smitten with her stamps and techniques.  
These Coffee Lovin' Ladies and few more of their friends will be going home to 2 of you this week!  2 Junkie Bunkie Bags featuring this fabulous fabric with a lining of sweets will be prizes given away during the coming week.  Just in case you are wondering what a Junkie Bunkie is, it's a medium size tote bag with a zipper closing.  A wonderful size to take with you to girlfriend lunches or craft retreats! 
Get a fresh cup and get hoppin', …

Do you Drink Alone or with a Friend?

Welcome to the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers  Blog Hop!
This fabulous Pink & Grey Junkie Bunkie is from a collection called the Mad Hatters Tea Party, I love multi media cards and the fabric name of Tidings of Joy made it perfect for our Winter Hop giveaway.

Whether you drink alone or with a friend, t'is the perfect time of year for a cup of tea. 

I've always loved the thought of the quiet moments with a lovely cup of tea, whether it's with a great magazine or working on my Christmas shopping list with the fireplace flickering in the background and my favorite Christmas music quietly playing, it is simply charming. The mystic and aura of that cup of tea enchants.

Then reality pops in and it's December in Arizona, 85 degrees and the only tea I'll be drinking is with lots of ice on the back porch with a great Holiday Decorating magazine showing lots of snow and frolicking squirrels playing in the trees and fighting off mosquitoes. Maybe tomorrow we'll have a more…
