This week's this is... theme (as chosen by Sharon from Iris + Lily) is 'the contents of my handbag'.
So here it is - in all its uncensored glory. Starting from back left and moving in a backwards S shape (why? I dunno, just humor me...) - fabric scraps, keys, pamphlets from the Paddington Fair we went to yesterday, random receipts and business cards, sunglasses, doll's hat, wallet, pen, tampon (told you this was uncensored - sorry), Kate's Easter bag, current knitting project, money that's been flung into the bag in a hurry.
And this is the bag all this came from (made by me, of course!). It's very handy as it fits a LOT of stuff, so some days my handbag loot would be twice as much as this, and might include nappies, bibs, drink bottles, food etc. It also has a long strap so I can wear it and be 'hands free' - especially important when I'm out with the kids. But as Tom Robbins likes to say, "a big front always has a big back". And the 'big back' of this bag is that it often ends up holding LOTS of things I don't really need to be carrying around with me. Same with my nappy bag, which is a big-ass Crumpler that I love, and can fit everything in, bar the kitchen sink - problem being that it often does include everything as I just keep chucking stuff in without taking other stuff out first. All I can say is, thank goodness the theme this week was not 'This is...the contents of my nappy bag'.....EEEEKKKKKK!!!!!
