Henry Tomkins

If you’re wondering why I keep blogging about my birthday presents it’s because I received a few special ones this year as this birthday was a significant one. So no, I’m not just showing off how many presents I got (I know you thought it!). For this significant birthday a few of my family clubbed together to buy me a handbag made by the amazing Henry Tomkins. Today it finally arrived and it is beautiful. It even has a special paintbrush pocket. I love the way Henry describes how the bag needs ‘feeding’ with shoe cream, as thought it’s a real live creature. It’s lovely to think of it in that way, a new pal for all my projects and plans.

Just in case you happen to be around I’ll be at a coffee morning at Middleton village hall in the Borders in aid of the local school on Saturday. I’ll have all my usual bits and pieces plus a bit more so drop in and say hello.

    Hi I am just wondering how you are getting on with your henry tomkins bag? also how do you find it weight wise. Thanks.

      Hi Alison. It’s absolutely lovely and still going strong…I think it might out live me in fact! Weight wise it’s just right for me, even when I carry a full-to-brimming pocket sketch book in it. You could probably get something lighter but I should think that would compromise the durability and I like to be able to feel my bag’s there…especially on busy streets. Hope that helps 🙂 Hannah x
