The most beautiful bags in the world!!!

I have some of the most beautiful bags in the world in my possession.  My OH and I are in the process of collecting stock to open up a literary Teashop (how could I not... I fell in love with Leni's shop as I was writing it) and have some beautiful bags made from books as my first stock.

I have A Christmas Carol, The Secret Garden, Black Beauty, The best of Lewis Carroll, The Complete works of Shakespeare, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The complete Sherlock Holmes, Emma, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Rebecca,  The Bronte Sisters, Wuthering Heights and a Harry Potter, Jane Austen

Some have a slightly wider base than others but all are priced £55-£60 (+ £5 recorded postage).

I can't stress how gorgeous these are - I don't even care if I don't sell them because I'll keep them all.  They're hand-made to a fabulous standard and I even envy myself having one.  You won't find them in shops either - guys, you can get real brownie points buying one of these for the Mrs! 

Some of these are custom made for me so you won't find them anywhere else.

Pressy for a loved one - guaranteed delivery before Christmas.

Santa needs a bit of help!!!

I heard about the Barnardo's family centre this week after a friend told me that they were desperately short on pressies for Christmas for kids in our local area who come from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances.

This is a call-out for anyone who could slip an extra present in their shopping basket to donate for kids 0-16  like books, clothes, sensory books, teen stuff.  Alas the older kids get the short end of the donating stick so any help there is especially welcome.  No electrical stuff unless it's brand new with kite marks please and no need to wrap as the staff will need to check and match it to a child (via Santa of course).

I can't bear to think of kids without something to open on Christmas morning, and inconceivable as it is in this day and age, it happens.  So if you can shove something extra in your trolley and drop it off at Priory Campus Lundwood, Barnardos - driving instructions here (it's only darn Pontefract Road)  Yep, we are all busy at this time of year but I guarantee that your effort will be better received than you could imagine.  Oh and yes, I'm not just making a call out and sitting back duty done.  I'm donating.

The kids are having a party on the 12th December and if you can deliver before then, it would help.  Plenty of time to get organised helps the staff.

Please help if you can.  And if you are reading this from out of the area, there are your own local kids in the same boat.  Give a kid you don't know a reason to smile a bit this Christmas.

Thank you xx
