GIVEAWAY ALERT! - Draw now closed

As I've now exceeded 10,000 blog viewings and around this time last year I'd only just started blogging, (entirely by accident!), I've decided it's time for another giveaway.

All you have to do is leave a comment about your favourite bag.  Why do you like it so much and what do you look for in a new handbag, tote bag (any kind of bag really!)?  I don't mind if you're a follower or not, but of course I'd prefer it if you were ... it's a bit frustrating when it comes to the point of giving away and there's no answer from the person who's won ...  Anyway, because of my fondness for bags in general, then I have this cute handbag shaped pincushion to give along with a box of retro style postcards of London.  I think they've been produced to celebrate the Jubilee and Olympics - I kind of fell in love with the images when I saw them so it's going to be hard to part with them...

Look forward to hearing from you!  Can you let me know how to contact you if you don't have a blog I can get through to?  Just send me an email (mine's on this blog).  Good luck - I'll draw an answer at random...


  1. My fav bag type is a satchel but my dream bag is Hermes Kelly in orange.

  2. Hi Diane, my favorite bag is my over the shoulder Oakley bag. It's so comfortable to we at all day when you exploring the museum or out on the town because it keeps your hands free. Plus it has the perfect amount of pockets for a days putting. Metro card for subway, cell phone for a quick call, house keys for quick access and all the pockets have zippers so it's secure! This bag is so worn out that I may have to use it as a pattern so I can make a new one, it's falling a part and I have yet to find anything else that fits the bill so perfect.

  3. Diane, I love bags of all kinds.. I have several tote bags that I carry often [while doing doctor visits,I carry my hand sewing, reading ,etc].. Well, anyway, Cathe [such a sweet friend] sent me a tote bag with a photo of a sewing machine on it. She was in NYC for a buisness meeting and bought it for me and sent it to me,It is so special to me, because she was so thoughtful to send it to me..
    thankyou for the giveaway..

  4. My favourite bag at the moment is a sale purchase, it's a little across the body bag, very vintage looking made from string and is box shaped with a pretty pink flower on the top corner. I really like leather bags but have a little collection of sequinned and beaded clutch bags which I adore!

  5. My favorite bag(s) are the market bags I make from very sad vintage linens. I'm not a big handbag person : ) I have three different sizes so I can manage all my "stuff", I haven't bought anything new and have recycled that which might otherwise been tossed. I'm loving catching up on your blog!

  6. Hi Diane, greetings from Singapore! It's kind of hard to have a favourite as I am such a fan of bags, but I guess if I have to pick one, it would be the Pashli from Philip LIm 3.1 collection. Love the form, aesthetics and versatility - it could be used for casual and work purposes.

    And it's really awesome of you have this giveaway. The handbag pincushion is seriously the bee's knees!

    Have a great week ahead!
