Some of you know I have been obsessing about a pre-loved barenia toile for a long time.... i have posted about my bag before i had it, asked docride, gracekelly and others loads of questions about care.... and asked lailat, ms piggy, jburgh, dressage queen, h&h lots of questions

BEFORE i had a bag

Then my grail bag - perfectly pre-loved - showed up on jemznjewels over christmas....

FOR CHRISTMAS i received a gorgeous chevre kelly 32 - vert olive - and i had to put aside thoughts of my grail because i thought it wrong to be greedy in the midst of a financial crisis.

besides which, i was waiting for a project to be funded. first it was a go, then the ceo stepped down, and it was a no.... then i got pneumonia.... and all i could do was post other lovely bags in the ebay finds thread for entertainment

while i stalked jemznjewel's bag
