this is ... the contents of my handbag

wallet
keys
mobile (when I remember it)
That's all!

Actually, I don't even have a handbag. I just transfer the above three items from one bag to another depending on where I'm going and what I'm wearing. The bags are much more intersting than their contents:

A nappy bag made by my sister using Miffy fabric she bought in Japan.

A Shinzi Katoh tote that is big and sturdy enough to carry my TAFE supplies.

A homemade knitting bag with pockets just the right size for needles, scissors and measuring tape. I have been using this bag much more in recent days and hope to be able to show you the results in a couple of weeks.

My "turf bag", which I made from a square of fake grass that I found in Lincraft many years ago.

And many, many more ...

P.S. Sorry about the scarcity of photos today. Olive has decided once again that she won't sleep unless she's lying on top of me so my free time has been radically diminished. I know it's just a phase, but I'm hoping it won't last too long. And trying not to guiltily think that it's a sign she's become insecure since I went back to work :(

Hello!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello. I have been reading some of your old posts - I laughed and laughed when you talked about your white trash neighbours. I wish I could see them, her banging the car with a broom handle, him packing up his stuff...only to move on back again! Quality!

My handbag is full of junk and junk and more junk. It's awful, and makes me quite embarressed :(

Oh, and another thing - that little Olive looks good enough to eat. Beautiful little girl, beautiful name!

Oh no - there are only three items. I'm OK. Really. I just have to breathe slowly for a bit!

I would very much like to see more of those grassy bags...so clever.If you get some more fake grass, you should make some to sell, cause I'd buy one!
