Meet Miss Scarlett



I'm soooo excited about today's post!  I can hardly wait for you, my blog readers, to meet Miss Scarlett.  You may be scratching your head and wondering, who in the world is Miss Scarlett.  Well, hang on and let me tell you a little pre-story. 

Over the past few months I have read a couple of different blog posts about ladies and their adventures with their cute McKenzie-Childs totes.  I made a comment to one of them that I just might have to get myself a MC tote as they were just so cute.  Well, a couple of weeks later I was extended an invitation to join The Traveling Totes gals. What? there's an organized group of 12 ladies that share their adventures with their totes.  Yes, there is and I am now an "official" member. ~see the graphic on my side bar~ I had no idea it was an organized group but what a fun group they are! And, they have been so warm and welcoming to Miss Scarlett and me.  We're from all across the country and will do special traveling totes post every 3 months.  My first one to participate in will be next March.  Meanwhile, let me get back to introducing you.

McKenzie-Childs has discontinued the particular tote that all the ladies of the group have but one of the sweet members told me that there was a brand new one available on Ebay.   So, off to Ebay I went and bought her.  All The Traveling Totes must have a name and I thought that Miss Scarlett was a great southern name and is most fitting for my prissy gal.



Miss Scarlett arrived this past Monday is this HUGE box.  I had her shipped to my husband's office so I opened her in my little "fun room" there.


As you can see, I was very "into" opening the box.



Miss Scarlett was so carefully packed for her shipment, the first of many travels and adventures she would have in the days to come. 


Finally, I got to  Miss Scarlett.  She was wrapped tightly in plastic and I finally got it off and here she was "in all her glory!"


I gave  Miss Scarlett a big ole hug and then put her on my arm to see how good she felt and how good she looked on my arm. Miss Scarlett makes such a statement!



Jonette, one of my husband's staff members, took all the pictures for me and so I allowed her to be the first person, outside of myself,  to "give Scarlett a try."  I thought she wore her well.



It was time for Miss Scarlett and me to head home.  She tried out the couch for a while and then I moved her over to the rocking chair and she seemed far more at home there.  So, for now, that's where she has stayed while we get acquainted with each other.


  I'm not sure where Miss Scarlett will be staying when we aren't on an adventure but she has already informed me that it will not be a closet.  So, we will work on finding the perfect spot for her in the days ahead and perhaps that spot will not always be the same place.  But, Miss Scarlett and I will get it all figured out as we get better acquainted.

Thanks for stopping by and making Miss Scarlett feel so welcome and I hope you will enjoy our future outings and adventures.
