This blog post is as random as the title!
I have been updating the Etsy Shop
 and the madebyhandonline shop...goodness it takes time and tenacity!
But anyway, at least the shops are now stocked.

I have been honoured with a beautiful article in the new publication of 'Haute Handbags',
if I can remember rightly, due out in May.

A four page feature of Hen's Teethy handbags :)
Stampington have styled the pages so beautifully.

Lots of very stylish handmade bags in the publication with great ideas.
Talking of lovely publications, I treated myself to this Country Living ... well, I'm not sure if you would call it a magazine or a, I suppose.
Full of all my fav CL features.
 I have stopped buying magazines just lately, as they have become so expensive,
no room to store them and I would much rather save up and buy a book.

You may have noticed 'Billy-Wiz' photo on my side bar for
Please, if you are considering having a new family member, please take a look at this site.
They do such incredible work.
I would have at least another two dogs, if the current husband had not reigned me in.

Last but not least, have you been watching TheSyndicate ???  
Just the best TV in the UK for a long, long time.  
I implore you, catch up on iPlayer, if you have missed it.
Thanks so much for stopping by. x

You have been busy Viv. I feel very guilty because I've so much to do for the Vintage Bazaar next Saturday. Congratulations on the magazine article. I've bought the Country Living book also, it really is full of beautiful photographs and so much inspiration. See you next week.

Congratulations on getting published, they've showcased your work beautifully. Country Living ::drool::

I couldn't agree more about rehoming a 'secondhand' dog. They. Are. The. Best. FACT!

Have not heard of The Syndicate, I'll check it out when I have a spare mo (!).

'Stampington have styled the page so beautifully'
(I nearly stampingtoned my footy-wooty - Why? Cos without your wonderful work they'd have no blooming page to style that's why... So there!!!)

Am I glad I will be at your workshop in less than two weeks time - I can't wait.

Book now girls to see the Guru of Green Eye (me) meet the Queen of Style and Stitch. Open your eyes Viv and see what a super star we all think you are. You'd better believe it!
