Little Bags of Happiness


Can you find happiness in a bag?

Happiness: described as a sense of well-being, joy, or contentment. Many things make us happy - being in love, family, good friends, being on holiday, a newborn baby, a hot sunny day, material possessions - wait, what, material possessions, are they meant to make us happy or is happiness from material things considered shallow, trivial, superficial? Well it depends, I have known people who obsessed about having the newest, biggest or best of everything, I think that's superficial, but it made them happy. I have nice things in my home and things that I "make do" with. But when we eventually do get a new kitchen I will be very, very, very happy.


Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Abraham Lincoln

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
 George Sand

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city. 
George Burns



I felt happy with these little bags or rather what was in them - sale bargains. 
Oasis is my favourite store at the moment.


This was only £10




And this was half price at £25


It's easy to get carried away with sales, buying just because it's reduced. With the £10 top I know I will get pleasure from wearing it in the summer. When I first saw the jacket in the sale soon after Christmas I didn't buy it because I told myself that I didn't really need it. Upon returning home I regretted that decision. I didn't need it but I wanted it. I couldn't find it online and it was no longer in the shop a few days later. So imagine my delight when it was back in the sale a couple of weeks ago. Wearing it makes me happy. So in answer to my question above, yes I can find happiness in a bag.


Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall.
It's the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events.
Joy comes in sips, not gulps. 
Sharon Draper

I hope you find many sips of happiness in all sorts of places

  4. I once saw a dress that I loved in White Stuff but I knew that at about £60 there was no way I could afford it. I even made the mistake of trying it on and loved it even more. A few months later I was in one of my favourite charity shops and there was the dress, in my size for FIVE POUNDS!!! That was certainly happiness in a bag for me that day. Like your jacket it was serendipity, we were meant to have them. Just popped by as I thought I hadn't seen a post from you for a little while. Hope all is ok xx
