Oh Bedcrumbs!

I popped down the road to the shop today like you do, you know to get the mundane bread, milk,redbull,hot chili sauce and chocolate odd combination I know. When paying for my basket of goods, I was reminded how very fed up I am of this old primark purse of mine.I've had the purse for three years, once upon a time I adored the quirky print since then I've some how managed to become even more eccentric, there for the old bland primark purse with a broken zip is doing nothing for me anymore. Believe it or not I'm not over the top materialistic nor a massive consuming creature. I rarely purchase new items unless I'm really, really desperate and in need of something.When heading home with my bit of shopping I was oblivious to the fact I was leaving a long trail of pennies behind me, yep pennies had rolled out of my battered old purse due to one giant sized hole.

With the highstreet really quite dull right now, it wasn't easy finding the perfect purse in fact by the time I reached Warehouse I gave up all hope of ever discovering a lovely little purse to keep the very few pennies I have nice and safe.Until I remembered this adorable special gifts company I stumbled upon some time ago now( memory nudged when eating a cheese and mango chutney sandwich crumbs fell into my lap)called bedcrumb.co.uk (once again sorry's for the lack of link 'tis still not working frustrating!!).
It really is a cute as cute can be website, a pleasant experience too. Kind of like visiting your quirky aunts house for Sunday lunch while her nutcase pet parrot squawks in the background with your aunt explaining the story behind each antique teapot that sits upon the shelf.
Erm yeah yeah you get the drift already?

Bedcrumb's unique designs consist of a mish mash mixture of found old vintage buttons, ribbons, lace, bows materials combined with illustration and textile design. The array of random and naive style illustrations such as ladies,cakes teapots,birds and creatures just make your heart melt and your imagination run wild. Each Bedcrumb scarf, brooch, purse and card tells a little charming story,the icing on the cake is each piece is made in the UK with lots of love and totally free of nasty same old, same old mass production.Embrace the crumbs is what I must do, and I sure am going to indulge I'm going to treat moi to not one but two delicious bedcrumbs one scarf and of course a much needed brand new purse. Erm that is when I've decided which purse I want?

How sweet! I hope you find your perfect purse. Day-to-day I use a tiny little coin purse I've had for years from Topshop. However I have a large Hello Kitty purse which I like to use too!
