What's in my handbag ...

Ella Masters, whom I follow on Twitter, has written some lovely blog posts all about what's inside her various bags.  I thought it was such a nice idea that I decided to take a pic of the contents of my hand bag too.  It's quite a small bag and I'm amazed how much actually fits in there - the only thing that I forgot to photograph is my phone - that sits in the front pocket.

The fold up handmade tote bag is so well used and still looks fresh and beautiful.  My sister bought it for me from a shop on Folksy and it stays in my bag at all times.  The fabric wallet (Patchy Pockets), is the second one I made and is stuffed full of all the little bits that would just get lost inside the bag.  There's plasters, poo bags, a small sewing kit, comb, make up brush, mirror, note book, soap leaves, pencil, lots and lots of store cards and some business cards too.  Just love it, couldn't do without it.

The purse, from Sandringham in Norfolk, caught my eye - my daughter bought one exactly the same for herself.  And finally, the little pot of Nivea hand cream - couldn't live without it as my hands get very dry, especially in winter.

Do you like the little brooch on my bag?  I always try to have one pinned on there, just to give it a dash of colour and, well, you never know, someone may ask where they can buy one!!  My current brooch on display is a lazy cat sitting under an apple tree.

Why not take a pic of what's in your bag to show your blogging friends.

Oh you have such lovely things in your bag! And the bag is lovely too:) It's so interesting seeing what other people have in their bags! I pretty much just have nappies and baby wipes in mine... Very cute brooch by the way!

Thanks for commenting - you were both quick off the mark! I've now changed the picture so it fits the blog post OK.

@Vic - I used to love the nappy bag we had when the kids were babies - so spacious and it just had the right amount of pockets for everything! I used to keep baby wipes with me right up until a year or so ago - they come in so handy.

You do have some lovely things in your bag. My problem is I have 3 favourite bags and inevitably sometimes forget to swap all the contents and it is always the one thing I need that is missing!

This is a lovely idea. Your bag contents are very neat, tidy and pretty. I wouldn't dare to share mine with the rest of the World. Bits of old bread stick and raisins are not attractive. Handbag of a Mummy of a 20 month old!
