Got a Valentine's card off Sam's sister ????? (erm yes????)
He got 2 cards
He sounded pretty cheerful
Wish I could have been with him today
Once I had manged to battle my way into the house tonight, through the bouquets of red roses lol, I found a lovely surprise waiting for me.
Well you know how much I love parcels :-)
It was first class airmail from America Such excitement!!!
It was my Laga handbag.
A little while back Linda (at Lindas) ran a fabulous competition in conjunction with FuelmyBlog. So never one to miss an opportunity 'to put my hat in the ring' I entered.
My little ditty that you could sing-a- long to with Dolly Parton actually won. Yes I was amazed too!!!
I had a selection of prizes to choose from... truffly chilling bath things, kitty mittens, candles oh and loads loads more.
My choice was made when I read about Laga handbags. The company was established following the awful tsunami that hit Indonesia and surrounding areas on Boxing Day 2004. An event I certainly will always recall after seeing the graphic TV footage that day and for some time afterwards.
The bags are all handmade by tsunami victims in Aceh. Eventually it is hoped that Laga will employ 1,200 local people to make these exquisite bags and bring a renewed economy to the stricken area.
The embroidery designs are based on original Acehnese work that has been passed down through many generations.
'Laga' means 'beautiful' in Acehnese and beautiful they are indeed. I am proud to now own one, no two bags are the same and I doubt many people in the United Kingdom have one (what a unique feeling that is) ..... & yes Roy (VanBroekhuizen, Chairman of Laga) I certainly will let you know the UK's response when I get them.
This gorgeous bag is coming with me to work tomorrow that is for sure & thank you so much Laga, Linda & FMB :-)
even the bottom of the bag is embroidered
(this will definitely not be put on the floor!!)
Oh and a very Happy Valentines Day everyone xxxxx
