Sunshine and handbags

What a joy to at last get to our caravan at Ayside in Cumbria.
First time this year thanks to our friends and neighbours Jan & Mark offering to look after little Kikki who doesn't travel well.
We had a trip down to Ulverston for a bit of shopping and came across this lovely teashop
right next door to the shop that had this bag in the window.
 I went in to have a look at the others that they had and was fascinated to learn that they are made from original oil paintings and hand stitched.  They really were the most unusual and wonderful bags I have ever seen but at £275 I'm sorry to say they had to stay on the shelf.
Back at the caravan park which is looking very pretty with all its flora and fauna I got down to a bit of painting for my online art course and finished a watercolour project I have been working on.
Wonderful sunshine, wonderful friends and a lovely relaxing time.
Can't wait to do it all again.


  1. Hi Lynn, that bag is nice but would you really want to use an original oil painting to put shopping in.....! Your water colour painting is superb, I like the collage style very much - the sewing words remind me of zentangle. Pleased that you got some time away in this wonderful weather too. Hugs, Anne x

  2. Novel idea for a bag - but as you say, not an impulse buy!
