Do a Ditty dum Ditty Do!


Every girl needs a Ditty Bag by Vera Bradley. "Why, Mama Henley, I've never heard of such a thing as a Ditty Bag," I can hear you all say in your best Southern drawl. Well, don't you worry even one little bit, Mama Henley will explain. A Ditty Bag was a genius idea from Vera Bradley. It is a small bag with a drawstring that is LINED with plastic. Yes, you read that right, it is LINED with plastic. If you still don't understand why I am so excited, I will explain. You can pack it with your makeup and it doesn't matter if it spills. Or, you can put it in your beach bag with all of your items in it that need to stay waterproof like your camera, Flip video camera, keys, and money. I often keep an empty one in my beach bag for holding wet bathing suits on the way home! You don't need just one, so you may want to buy two! I promise you will love it. Ours is packed in our beach bag for a boat ride tomorrow!

Genius! I've even got a ditty bag and never used it. Now I will. Thanks for the idea! :)

I love these fabulous bags. I own two ~ one for travel to hold anything that has the potential to leak and one for my beach bag to carry home wet suits.

Have a great weekend~

I didn't even know that I NEED one of those. I had a ball today at the tea with you and the other mamas.

So funny, I'd never heard of a ditty bag until I began dating my hubby. He was a sailor and of course had a ditty bag for all his wet items. Now I have several Vera ditties (sp?). Love em'! Have a good weekend!

The title of this post just kills me with cuteness!! I love these bags, seriously awesome for travel, and perfect when I babysit my niece and nephew for unexpected trips in the sprinkler and a need for a change of dry clothes :) XOX Hope you've had a great week, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to you Mama Henley! :)
