UPDATE: New Zealand Chapter

Look how adorable this bag is with the hand drawn front! WOW! Way to go New Zealand. I love it and keep up the great work. So happy these are going to a great cause at the food bank! Teresa

Hi Teresa.  My friend and bagette assistant makes awesome GBL bags. Here is another example.  We are giving some regularly to the ASHHURST food bank to be given to needy people when they receive a donation of food.

Virginia Bags!

Hi Teresa, so sorry to take so long to get back to you with these pictures, but we are terrible about remembering to take photos, in general! We really do enjoy these bags and can't thank you enough for making our shopping trips so colorful and bright!  We literally use Green Bag Lady bags every week for our weekend trips to Aldi and Kroger. I have not needed a plastic bag since we started receiving GBL bags back in 2011 or so.

Best, Jenn

California Bags!

Talk about Parking Lot fun, I asked a total stranger to take a photo of me, with my Heart Giveaway Green Lady Bags #48427 and 48428, here in sunny Northern California!

Bunny tracks in my yard today!
These sound intriguing + yummy!

And these!

And this!

Speaking of food, I ordered some of these. I wish everything was made with natural dyes.

Wow. Read the captions.

Such amazing photos! Lookin' good Mother Earth!


I am simply devastated by this. Enough is enough.

What have you been up to? I've been working on a lot of alterations this week and some special orders. I keep forgetting to take photos to show you. Soon! I've also finished a ton of pouches and will be update my etsy shop soon. I took down the handful of heart decor in my house and replaced it with shamrocks. Since my kids have gotten older I haven't been getting out holiday decor except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was fun to open the Valentine/St Pat's bin and take a look. I've decided to only decorate with what I can carry in one trip up the stairs. Taking down hearts was easy and I've found a renewed sense of fun in the festive decor. I'm enjoying the green! Have a lovely weekend. Hugs--Teresa


Happy day to you and yours. I wish you a day of wearing red and pink, chocolate and lots of kisses! Here are some from me: XOXO Teresa

I wish my toes were still in the Black Sand Beach in Hawaii!
What Harmony and I will do on the beach this summer…

Speaking of oceans, the problem continues.

I could look at these all day.

Can you tell I'm dreaming of summer/the beach? We are still trying to decide what to do for spring break and it may have to involve the ocean. It should be a pretty mellow weekend. Little Girl informed me that it's National Pizza Day. Dinner? Teresa
