Behind the Scenes: Pretty Bags

I've never really considered myself a "collector." Sure, when I was younger I accumulated all the usual things little girls do - Barbies, beanie babies (hello, 90s), stuffed animals - but other than my Madame Alexander dolls, there was never anything that I wanted to collect. Now, though, as silly as it sounds, I think I've taken a liking to collecting shopping bags. Not just any shopping bags - those pretty ones that you don't come across on your average Target run. There's something special about the way certain bags look and feel - like you know there's something extra fabulous inside. I especially like the ones with rope-like or ribbon handles.

Is this my own little quirk? Please tell me some of you all do this, too!

Can I just say...I save every Kate Spade bag, box, tissue paper. How pathetic am I?!?!?!

I just saw a post where someone had framed a bunch of cool shopping bags (each separately) and it made such a great gallery wall!!

Love the ones you have!

You are definitely not alone, I held onto a tiny Marc Jacobs bag for ages because it was so cute. I've seen some people frame their favorite bags and use them as decor.

I def do this too! I love the idea of framing them and hanging them in a closet or bedroom. Oh and who didn't have a massive Beanie Baby Collection! My mom would drive me to the end of the world for the latest.

I 100% do this too! Usually I tell myself I'm saving them for a certain reason (like to use as lunch bags) but really it's just because they're pretty!

Image them all! My Mama and I use them in decorating all the time. We just redid her bathroom with tons of Tiffany boxes and bags. It looks adorable!
