I am fairly new to the PB, and yes, Patti Hansen, is really my name. I guess when I put my user name on it didn't occur to me to think up something else...what can I say!!!! I thought I would just post a message to introduce myself to all of you. I live in New Mexico but my DH and I are from Seattle and we have a place on Whidbey Island, hence my other location. The dog picture is my bull terrier, like the Target dog. His name is Ike. I have 5 Chanels, three double flaps black, white, and pink, a jumbo in red with the new chain, and a beige medallion tote. I love them all, and I have MANY other bags of various types. I used to sell handbags at Saks in Kansas City. I have the grey Lady Braid on order for the fall. I totally love reading about everyone and their collections. I feel I have found a whole new set of handbag soul mates.
