The post where I share my favorite dumped purses, give away an awesome$120 purse AND a pretty vintage dress from Shabby Apple!

If you follow the Kelley's Break Room Facebook page, you surely have seen a dumped purse or two by now. There have been 90 purses dumped and captioned so far. There would be more if I could get my act together this summer.

Here are a few of my favorites, though I love them all. For real. All of them.

This purse belongs to Abby from Abby Has Issues. I love, love that she took a picture of a water heater and vegetable steamer as objects that she carries around in her purse. She might actually carry those around in her Marilyn Monroe bag. She's sort of a crazy one.
Patti's purse has all sorts of interesting things inside it, of course. I *just* realized that her Vinnie bag that she carries her tampons in actually said "Tampon Case". I just thought it was something she used for her tampons. Her purse is like a traveling joke shop. (By the way, I got her website name wrong in the picture. It's just

This one belongs to my friend, Wendy, and has got to be my VERY favorite. If you didn't see her purse the first time around, maybe you can make a guess about what you think that circled object could be? I will put the answer at the end of this post. We'll make a little game out of it.

Not long after I started asking people to dump their goods, Brooke Linville asked if she could sponsor the posts, which was very generous of her. She sells Grace Adele purses at her website, Home Purse Business. Grace Adele is part of the Scentsy family and offers a large variety of really pretty and versatile handbags. Brooke graciously offered to give not only a handbag away, but a clutch, too! The value together is $120.

This picture shows the solid black purse ($80) with an interchangeable zebra clutch ($40) situated in the outside pocket. You can see the solid black purse here and the zebra clutch here on her website.

So cute!

Since Brooke was kind enough to give a purse to one of you guys, I thought I would throw in a cute dress, too. Shabby Apple contacted me recently and asked me to show you guys some of their vintage clothing. I had the privilege of looking through some of their dresses and picking one of them to give to you.

I loved them all.

These dresses make me think of the days my grandmother and grandfather were dating in the 1940s. They met in Tomball, Texas but then moved all over the country with their family. He was in the Navy. I love looking at pictures of them from so long ago. My grandmother had beautiful dark brown hair and was definitely a catch for my handsome grandfather!

I narrowed down the dresses to two. If you are the winner of this giveaway, you can choose which dress you would prefer.

 This dress is called TIBER , is white with navy stripes and regularly sells for $88.00. It is currently on sale for $48. I love, love it. So simple, so elegant and so classy.
This dress is called HEART OF ME and it regularly sells for $109. It is on sale now for $79. I love the color, fabric, cut and flow of this dress.
I feel like a gold mine just exploded here in the Break Room, except I can't keep any of the gold. Not even to buy a Coke out of the vending machine. It's okay, though, because, for one thing, I want you to have them and, for another, gold doesn't even work in those vending machines. 
If you would like to get your hands on that purse and yourself in that dress, just enter using the Rafflecopter below!

*Are you still wondering what that mystery object is inside the baggy in my friend Wendy's purse? That would be an UMBILICAL CORD STUMP. She hasn't always carried it around. (Her younger son is 8.) She found it while cleaning out some boxes. Her husband said he wanted to throw it away and she said, "No! Don't throw that away! Let me put that in my purse!" So, there it sits. I wonder if it is still there... Wendy? Are you there?
