  1. ...and I said in another post it would be astronomically embarrassing...but I guess I have no shame. Perhaps it'll be something akin to therapy for me and I'll never go to these kind of extremes again. Okay....drum roll please....

    Here’s what I still have:

    Grand Total =58

    I think I’m missing a few but DAMN…my head is spinning from trying to remember all of that!
     
  2. :wtf: Oh my God. It's just too sick. :wtf:

    :shrugs:
     
  3. :faint::faint::faint::faint:
     
  4. And for that reason I would never post my lists again because it makes you look healthy! LOL

    I sold a Chocolate and Two Rust ones so I don't know which of mine you got!

    The ones I miss the most are my Black Studded Ada, My Terraine Maria, and for nostalgic reasons, the Metallic Army Scarlett. That was my very first Kooba. I thought I had died and gone to heaven after my bad bad obsession with Signature Coaches. This was real TDF leather and my Husband asked me if it cost over 1000.00??? At that time, you might as well have handed me a Hermes Birkin bag. I thought I was in "High End" bag land...LOL Little did I know I was on a Highway to Hell....LOL
     
  5. ^^^LOL!!!


    And Highway to Hell is 'bout right!

    And I can't believe looking at that list above...and supposedly being on a 'ban' (whatever THAT means....) I'm still sniffing around bags!!!

    Oh God. I'm so not healthy. Why can't I be passionate (addicted, more like) about something less expensive...like... collecting spoons from other states or something? :girlsigh:
     
  6. Ok KoobaMe.....I am going to start a new obsession. I will scour Ebay tonight for Salt & Pepper Shakers. You do spoons and then we'll switch collections. That will satisfy us :huh:
     
  7. aww koobame.. you dont want to be my friend =(
     
  8. KoobaMe.....you certainly live up to your name, don't you!!! I'm so glad that you still have your flower embossed Sienna. That is my favorite bag. I love her to death and I baby her but I use her, and I get compliments from strangers every time I have her out. It's amazing because it is so different, know what I mean? I even had two women in Santa Fe come up to me and tell me that they admired my bag and they wondered who made it. It does have that southwestern look to it....which I love! Please don't ever get rid of your Sienna!! Promise???
     
  9. Lexie- You're on. Now we need someone on the shot glasses from all states! But...I wonder how many spoons it takes to equal the satisfaction of one purse? How many spoon racks and curio cabinets am I going to need??

    sinniebunnie: I have no idea what you're talkin' about, girl. :confused1:

    CP: Fear not, she's not going anywhere -I love her too much! I don't use her often what with the number of bags I have but when I do I fall in love with her all over again. I really like the fact that because of the cool embossing the leather used is different from other Siennas - more structured so it's shape to me is so pleasing. Definitely has a southwest feel. I think I may just take her out this weekend! :yes:
     
  10. I just figured it out....
     
  11. YAY! i was sad for a moment when you didnt know what i was talking about! Your kooba-ness has inspired me and i had to add you to my collection of special friends!
     
  12. I definitely resemble those remarks. I'm second in line right behind you, Lexie.
     
  13. I remember that trip, Rose. You took her along because of the western flare and she turned heads in Sante Fe.
     
  14. I collect magnets (like for your refrigerator) from different states. I miss my desert Marcelle, cream Sienna and black Charlie.
     
  15. Oh, and bourbon Jillian.
