Handbag Illustrated

Art work by Maya Wilson

If there ever were such a magazine this would be right in there....

How fantastic is this illustration by Maya Wilson!?! If you hadn't already guessed its ME!! Maya and I agreed a while ago to do a 'talent trade' I made her a baby/changing bag out of some of her very own hand printed fabric and in return she would immortalise me in one of her wonderful illustrations.

I have to say I absolutely love it!! I like to think of her as my alter ego 'Bagladee' ;) She is currently sitting pretty on my home page of my website with a message (more about that later). She will also be my inspiration for my revamped website and blog.
I really cant thank Maya enough :) thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

By popular demand...

There has been little blogging of late, but since the photos of makes are starting to pile up I thought it would a shame not to share. By popular demand I have made some more of the storage boxes. I can pretty much make them in any colour scheme so if you are interested then please do shout up.

Hopefully this set will be winging its way to Paris!! I know tres Chic!!

I do have other news......which will be coming soon....however I can tell you that I will be moving into a new studio. Watch this space!!

My Etsy Wish List

I know we're all feeling the pinch in the purse this year and I'm so pleased that the depressing, gloomy start to the year was quashed by the vibrant and uplifting Jubilee & Olympic celebrations. And it continues with the Paralympics which is just utterly amazing! Such inspiring athletes.
Some evenings when C is at football I like to have a bit of window shopping on Etsy, its ideal snuggled up on the sofa with a cuppa (tonight the Paralympics on in the background). Its been tough this year with C and his work/job, me going back full time and not being able to spend a penny (no not in the public convenience sense). So the next best thing is to add my goodies to my favourites, revisit, add, the hope that when things settle down I can treat myself a little.
Leather Messenger Handbag Satchel Yellow from TheLeatherStore 
I am already lucky enough to own a bag from The Leather Store, its a beautiful Aubergine colour leather and this yellow one is just stunning. Perfect for cheering me up on sunny days.
Vinyl Wall Decal 'Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass it's about learning to Dance in the rain' from   InitialYou 
I love wall decals and this one is very much my outlook on life. And let me tell you I have done plenty of dancing in the rain :) 
14K GOLD Leaf Necklace - As Seen on Courtney Cox And Jennifer Aniston from classicdesigns
I've had my eye on this little gem for a loooonnnnng time (hint hint Mr. C!!) ClassicDesigns have some beautiful silver and gold Jewellery for sale I'm a huge fan.
Strapless Grecian Silk Wedding Dress, "June-Lily" Gown by rschone 
And lastly but no means least if C and I ever do get around to finally tying the knot I would love to wear a dress like this one. Wearing my feather necklace of course :)
Best get saving those pennies up........
Whats on your wish list?
