My New Choo Choo {Bag}

I made an absolutely KILLER thrift score Saturday at my local thrift shop!
Some of you may know from a previous post that I carry around my DSLR in an old "choo choo bag"

my old choo choo


Well, this past Christmas my man got me the zoom lens I had been coveting since he first got me my camera.
{This is what I use BTW}

Well unfortunately my new zoom pushed me past full capacity in my choo choo...
Bummer...

I considered getting just a normal camera bag, but they are so pricey and don't have all that much character.
So, I began {somewhat passively} searching for a new option and then I found this little gem!

green green green!!!  
I paid a whopping $2 for this little mama!

not quite as old, but a better color for sure

see how EVERYTHING fits now?!  even my battery charger and my bloggie camera!
and for those of you with sharp eyes, yes that IS a lego in my old choo choo...
my life is all legos all the time...
 I plan to use the leftover chair pad foam from my soda crate project to cushion the inside a little
there isn't a whole lot left, but those pads aren't too expensive, so it wouldn't hurt my feelings to get another to protect my prize possession.

the mirror is still intact even!
So this was a super awesome score!
I am so happy!  now maybe I can actually put my zoom to good use since I can carry it with me with no worries!
