    My new Small Cafe Bag!

    Almost four years ago, I bought a beautiful black/wasabi MCB. It's great for conferences and other situations where I need a purse that doesn't stand out, and I still use it all the time! Still, it's a bit too big when all I want to carry is my wallet and phone (and maybe a small notebook). I'd been thinking about getting a Small Cafe Bag for a long time, but couldn't justify spending the money on one since I already had the MCB -- plus I had already succumbed to the charms of the Imago, the Zephyr, and the Synapse...

    Well, I finally couldn't hold out any longer!


    Darcy made a valiant attempt at drawing a velociraptor for me.




    I also got a clear organizer wallet and another one of those nifty organizer pouches -- my first mini!




    Can I just say that I love the cocoa/wasabi combination?




    Annnd compared to my MCB which, though dusty, is still good as new!




    (Sorry, I forgot that I had dates enabled on my camera.)

    (Also, I just wanted to say that I received the 2011 Mystery Gift late last week, and it was awesome. Thank you so much!)

    A Wasabi fan!

    What kind of pen is that in the background? A Waterman Kultur?

    What color is your wallet?

    Thank You for Sharing! Great pictures! :)

    Indeed! :D

    You're right -- it's a Waterman Kultur. I resold my first one years ago, but last Christmas when I tried to order one for a friend, the seller accidentally sent it twice and told me to keep the extra.

    The back of the wallet is cocoa, if that's what you mean. I don't know if all wallets have the same interior colors, but I have no idea what color those are. I don't know what color the organizer pouch is, either. xD

    Congratulations on your SCB. My MCB is cocoa/wasabi. Beautiful color combination.

    When drawing that velociraptor for you, I channeled my inner child, who is not very good at drawing things as it turns out.

    What nib size is your Kultur and where did you get it from?

    A Cocoa wallet is the perfect color for your warm color TB bag palette.

    I believe you scored a gorgeous Turquoise Organizer Pouch! :)

    I'm impressed with your drawing skills! Especially as it looks good around the corners too!
