Handbags and more
Edited to add, the giveaway has been moved to a separate post HERE, after reading the rest of this post, and commenting (please) visit the other post to enter the giveaway. Thanks
This week my Show and Tell is all about bags and this birthday card was my inspiration for this post.
My lovely friend and neighbour at our cottage is a very talented knitter, and she made me this beautiful little black handbag for my birthday.
It is even lined, and with her own label inside.
The next bag is one a bought in a street market in Paris in May. It cost 8 euros (£5 or $10), and I love the shade of blue, the fabric and the shape. Costing so little, I was not sure it would last for long, but I have already more than got my money's worth, and it reminds me of the wonderful trip.
Do you bring your own reuseable bags to the supermarket? I TRY to remember, and now have a great collection of various shapes and sizes.
My favourite however, have to be these new ones in Tesco's designed exclusively by Cath Kidston. Each month there is a new design, they only cost £3.50, and they are made from recylcled plastic bottles. What is more, for every one sold they are making a donation to the charity Marie Curie Cancer Care, a wonderful charity.
So far I have bought two, and I look forward to seeing the rest of the designs (I believe there will be 3 more). Not only are they in gorgeous colours/patterns, but they are comfortable to carry, and may be even too nice to just use for supermarket shopping. I have already used mine for my library books and the beach.
I have one of the stripy bags to GIVEAWAY (and I haven't used this one yet - promise!)

Finally, I found a quote to share with you about handbags by comedian Billy Connolly:
" A woman's mind is as complex as the contents of her handbag: even when you get to the bottom of it, there is ALWAYS something at the bottom to surprise you!"
