a touch of handmade

I promised you handmade, so I've added this feminine little hand bag to the prize.  I love the little yo-yo snaps and the fabric is still one of my favorite combinations.


Keeping in the spirit of romance and Valentines Day, I thought today it would be fun to share our favorite romantic movie.


If I go with what pops into my mind first, it's Sleepless in Seattle.  I am such a sucker for that movie and will watch it every time I catch it on TV. 

But as I mulled it over in my mind I would have to add Hope Floats, there is something about Harry Connick, Jr. that gets me every time.  I love that scene at the dance where he smooth talks her around the floor....SWOON!


But then how could I leave out The Notebook?  Such a true romance...And that doesn't even touch on the classics...

Okay, I'm ready to hear yours.  Contemporary or Classic?

I'll wrap it all up tomorrow, I promise.  Patty

  5. I can only commit myself to a "favorite for a day". It may change tomorrow!

    The other day I watched "An Affair to Remember" again. I cry during the last scene every time. For today that will be my favorite.

    Seriously though, thank you for giving us something sweet to think about , and for putting your lovely bag to the giveaway.

  6. I'll choose a classic that is related to your choice of "Sleepless in Seattle". You'll recall that movie's references to "An Affair to Remember"(including a rendezvous at the Empire State Building). So, my choice is the film featuring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. I was woefully disappointed that Grant was not on the viewing deck on my one trip to New York!
    Have a wonderful day, Patty.

  14. 'You've Got Mail' is the one I could watch multiple time and have. I love the apartment decor, the story and especially the dogs name Brinkley. We named our yellow lab Brinkley and miss him so very much.
    Ah well, here's to fun romantic comedies which are my favorite kind.

    I also loved 'It's Complicated' and of course 'Sleepless in Seattle'.

  15. Sweet bag-love those colors!
    'Spendor in the Grass' with Sandra Dee & Warren Beaty always tears me up. And I did find 'The Notebook" very touching. They both break my heart!

  16. Lets see, so many!! Sweet Home Alabama, was pretty good as far as a more curent. But the older movies just had something that the new ones don't.
    This give away is just the best, Thank you.

  27. There are so many great ones. I'd have to say "An Affair to Remember" is one that makes me cry every time.
    Pride & Prejudice is also a favorite for me.

  28. Hi Patty, I just signed on to follow you! I love the movies you mentioned, Hope Floats and The Notebook, too. Great movies! Your giveaway is beautiful and congrats on getting a mention in Romantic Homes. That's awesome! Pamela

  29. Such a pretty purse, Patty. You have really made this giveaway special.
    My all time favorite is "Summer Place" with Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It is the first movie I saw with a real kiss in it (I think I was in 6th grade). Can't believe my Mom let me watch it.
    Then, I don't know if they are so romantic, but I love dancing movies. Dirty Dancing, Grease, Footloose are my favorites.

  30. Hi Patty - I just had a trip down memory lane via YOU. The first thing I ever sewed was a yo yo, at the knee of my great grandmother. I helped her thread her needles. (I couldn't understand why she couldn't do it! Now, I do.) I'm a Jane Austen fan - Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility are way up there on my list of romantic flicks!
    Following you back and glad we're connected!

  35. Charming bag.
    I think pink and lime green should get married.

    Romantic movie . . .
    I am a bit partial to "Summer of 42"
    Guess that shows my age!

  36. Hi Patty, I just found you! My favorite romantic(smoldering!) movie would have to be "Wuthering Heights"-the newer version with Ralph Fiennes. Oh, those eyes!
