still no head for the monkey... but an exciting parcel in the mail!

Hello! Just received this gorgeous bag in the mail on Friday, and had to show it off. The very clever Julia Laing made this. It came all the way to sunny Melbs Australia from the UK... (again, more o/s travel in my clothing, accessories and softies than I have had!). I was extremely fortunate to have won this on Julia's blog.

Thanks so much Julia, I love this bag, and it goes beautifully with my favourite jacket, which is a gorgeous shade of blue. This bag is what I refer to as a Mary Poppins bag - it is much bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside - so when I went out with is, I was able to fit in my wallet, camera, phone and a beanie. I love this fabric, and what I really love about the design, is the handle, which always has a lovely shape, whether is is being carried or is resting on a table/chair/lap. Can't wait til it is warm enough down here to wear with a light flippy skirt... I definitely feel very feminine and lovely carrying this bag!!!

Thanks Julia - I will be keeping a very close eye on your shop for more goodies!

(now, back to sealing the bathtub!)
