First, excellent bag! I love the way you incorporated the different elements, rose, bricks etc, into the design.
Second, what moisturiser does your mum use?! Ditto for everything everyone has said. You could be sisters!
Third, thanks for the info on the Landmark Trust. I have been there many times but had no idea you could stay there! I will have to look into it. I would recommend National Trust properties also. My favourite is in Stourhead gardens. I've travelled a lot, but I think it's one of my favourite places on earth!
