Christy: healthy grains and new bags

hallelujah! The heat wave is over and I no longer feel like I"m walking through semi-solid air. I don't know if this will help me get re-inspired but at least it means I can start breaking out the sweaters and cardigans again. It also means I can bake and cook without worrying about heating up the apartment.

This week my friend Chloe emailed me the names of some bazars happening in Montreal and I was able to go to two of them. They were kind of hit and miss but We both found some really nice bags.
Chloe found a really kick-ass leather bowling bag. Originally it wasn't for sale because it was just something the lady had used to bring stuff in but she sold it to Chloe for 2$

On the same table I found a black Matt and Nat Purse. It was kind of serendipitous because I had been wanting a bag by them for a while so that was kind of cool.
It's in perfect condition and cost me a steep 3$

Probably my most exciting find though was at the second bazar which is a big strange because most of the stuff there was seriously junk or at least really second rate but just sitting on a shelf with some beat up shoes I found a greenish Coach purse in pretty ok condition except for being a bit dirty. It cost me a crazy 2$

At first I wondered if it was a fake but I'm pretty sure it's not. It also just feels good quality when you touch it. The leather is sturdy and obviously good quality.

Anyone have any suggestions for cleaning leather?

Oh and this posts title? Well I've decided I'm going to learn to cook meals with healthy grains like barley, lentils, millet, quinoa etc. So far everyone I've told this has laughed at me but I find it pretty exciting.
Hope everyone is having a relaxing/fun weekend!

Ooh very nice, like the black one. I've been trying to find a new purse, but I need a rather large one haha! All the ones I see at thrift stores and such are never in very good shape :(
