New Lauren Tote Bags
It's Friday and spring is making the sky zing here in Cornwall. It is even quite warm in the sun and so I thought I would share the first of my new spring range with you to add a little more colour. I think most of you worked out that the fabric glimpse I showed the other day was bag related: two new Lauren Tote Bags, those ever-practical bags which I use for everything (and I do mean eeverything - trips to the beach, into town, picnics, change-bag for babies, art bag for student...the list goes on). This first one is the Lauren Tote in Leaf
I love the tonal range in this fabric with its strong yet subtle colours. I know that shouldn't make sense, but if you think of the way poppies are so delicate and yet positively drenched with colour then maybe you will know what I mean. I live in hope.
It seems to ensure it goes perfectly with almost every other colour I have tried it against.
Big enough to carry my towel, book, knitting, embroidery supplies, wet wipes, food and my sketching stuff...all you need for an average day on the beach really.
I did look something of an idiot photographing these on the quay, but I am so often there clicking away now that I think most of the boat owners choose to ignore me , particularly when I am lying across the car park trying to get a shot of an especially interesting piece of rope.
As a contrasting but equally zingy alternative there is also the Lauren Tote in Apples & Pears.
Gorgeous lime green and soft grey on a white background with touches of black to lift it.
The design is of apples and pears (!!!) in a bright contemporary print which I must admit makes my heart lift every time I glimpse it.
Perfect spring colours aren't they?
So there you have the first products in the new pipany spring
range: the Lauren Tote Bag in Leaf
and the Lauren Tote bag in Apples & Pears
I hope you like them and there will be plenty more to follow.
Have a great friday x
