Being from a very big and close family, I was always at my Nan's when I was little. She had milk delivered every day and when the milkman knocked in the wind, rain and snow to be paid, I'd run to the front door with her. A vivid memory is watching him put the money in a really unusual leather bag and when I saw Brit-Stitch's designs, I wondered why they looked so familiar to me...I read about the inspiration behind the brand only to learn that their bags came from the idea of a milkman's bag!
The designs were developed further and I ummed and ahhed over the choices and beautiful colours, before finally settling on a greyed jade 'office' bag with a turn lock. It has a strap too but I decided use mine as a clutch for the photos.
I was over the moon when it arrived. It is so beautiful and the quality is amazing. I showed my Nan on Easter Sunday and she loved it too.
My garden was far too boring as a back drop so I decided to transport myself to more idyllic places...
Thank you to Gretch, who was so lovely. The Brit-Stitch website is coming soon, but for now you can buy them at The Hut.
