cool totes

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

First of all, how can you just not love that name!
And, second of all, how can you not love something that doubles as a complete winter, corner of the room, yarn holder, cheer you anytime, happy tote, to a summer, fill with sunscreen, throw everything in bag... carry to a picnic, the beach, a yarn store, a trip or just leave in your car to be a complete catch all. 
I adore these bags!  They are strong, durable, affordable and, i'll say it again, HAPPY!
Well, guess what?  The fine folks over at mike and marley would like to give one of my readers a tote of their choice.  How cool is that?!?!?!
If interested, please leave a comment here between now and Saturday, October 27th, 5:00 pm EST and I will have the random number generator choose a number.
