    I have a positive pregnancy test in my handbag!!! I had it to show my mother, who I was meeting for coffee straight after doing test. I'd like to keep in baby book, though bit weird to be trapsing around with it… especially since baby due in ten weeks! Show's the state of my bag xx

    Lovely bag, the most unusual item in my handbag is a genuine Swiss army penknife. I bought it back from Switzerland for my dad who so sadly passed away earlier this year. Firstly it reminds me of him, secondly it has so many useful tools on it including a cork screw! xx

    Ooh you can't beat a bit of Cath Kidston, I love the cute bird cushion! The most unusual item(s) I have in my bag are what I can only describe as a 'nature collection'. During walks to and from school my three children are always picking up various small stones, twigs, acorns, leaves, flowers and give them to me as gifts. All are very gratefully received and I can only just about bear to throw them away when my bag gets a bit weighty at the bottom.

    It may not be that unusual but I am still getting used to having an epipen in my satchel in case of an allergic reaction to shellfish – boo!Maybe more unusual for others is the set of calligraphy pens that I always have in my bag!

    Hello! Firstly, your blog is sooo pretty- I love it! Secondly, lovely giveaway! I'd love to enter please. So what's the most unusual item in my handbag. Well it changes daily what's in there and there's not that much that is unusual, but I have a lamp-torch keyring which is great for finding missing items or wanting to read when it's dark when travelling in the car! My keys are the most indispensible item as I'm literally doomed if I can't find them!Oh and I'm following now!

    Much like most women, I have a million and one things in my handbag (how do men cope without one?!).I'd say the most unusual item is a mini sewing kit – some needles and a variety of threads, buttons, big nappy pins and smaller safety pins, some scissors and some paracetamol – which although nothing to do with sewing is a must! You'd be amazed how much it actually gets used. And I always feel so good whipping it out whenever it's needed!

    31st October 2011 / 3:02 pm

    Most unusual thing is a dolls head – my daughter broke her barbie and I keep forgetting to take it out! Makes for an interesting conversation when someone needs my number and I'm hunting for my phone ;P

    I was so sorry to hear what happened to Rosie. I hope she is doing better now and healing well. You are so thoughtful to host such a generous giveaway. One thing I cannot live without in my handbag is my little credit card case, for obvious reasons 😉

  25. Ellen
    31st October 2011 / 1:29 pm

    The one thing I can't live without in my purse is a pen! It is amazing how many times a day someone (including me!) needs one and the one hiding in my purse is the only one around! And I'm always afraid I'll need to leave a note in an emergency. 🙂

  26. Ellen
    31st October 2011 / 1:27 pm

    The strangest thing is my purse is probably a couple dozen bottlecaps! I collect them to make crafts, so whenever I'm out and someone removes one from a bottle, I snap it up!

  27. Happy Cottage Quilter
    31st October 2011 / 1:24 pm

    What a fabulous giveaway! I guess the most unusual item in my handbag is a small tape measure I bought years ago at JoAnn Fabrics. It's got sewing motifs all over it. And time and again that little tape measure has come in handy 😉

    I do love a bit of CK, not just her bags, patterns etc but her handcream too, if you haven't tried them – do so now! On holiday in Cornwall a few weeks ago, lucky enough to visit her store in St. Ives, bliss.My handbag – always a spare £1 coin, a tape measure (well clothes vary so much, no matter what the size says) an opaline crystal angel and a cross with the words of the poem "The Cross in my Pocket", this last item was in my late Mum's handbag, now it is in mine.Carol xx

    Hello there…from France :))I will take it as a lucky sign that I was just this morning surfing on the online CK shop and finding everything oh so tempting…Anyway, I guess the most unusual item in my bag is…my swiss Knife! Every member of my family gets one on their 18th bday.Mine has a screwdriver (wish it was sonic 😉 ), a "tire bouchon" (those who like wine will know what it is 🙂 ) and I love it!Take care of you, of your little Rosie and hope to hear from you soon…x0x0

    Gorgeous giveaway! The most unusual item in my bag is a wrench and I have absolutely no idea why! Recently I left my bag in a charity shop changing room. As soon as I realised I quickly run back to the shop where a couple of sweet old dears where rummaging through it looking for an address for me. They both raised their eyebrows at me as they past me my bag.I had all sorts in there a wrench, tape measure, stanley knife and a bunch of rocks from the beach. I can only imagine Hubby must have put them in my bag when we went to our sons to help him decorate. Very embarrassing!@mamamakes

    31st October 2011 / 1:22 am

    Oh I just love love love your site and a competition with just hours to go….!!!! So exciting.Well this is a little strange…BUT I have a little piece of old grotty fabric that was once my pillowcase as a child and became my 'snuggy blanket'.I sucked my thumb until I was about 33 – so until very recently. Could not sleep without sucking my thumb and having my snuggy rested on my lip. Ah after some healing therapy on a juicing retreat where I went on a 'Journey' to help with my depression – I was at once and somewhat unexpectedly cured of being a thumb sucker.But still a few years on the snuggly cloth comes with me and helps me when I am sad or lonely, afraid. A little rub between thumb and finger brings me great comfort.Much love formMolly-Mole xxx

    30th October 2011 / 6:43 pm

    I have just looked in my handbag, I didn’t find really unusual things. Maybe the screwdriver supply, we never know….:)The thing I can't live without in my handbag is my wallet.natasa- @ freemail . hu

  41. Fran
    30th October 2011 / 1:00 am

    The thing in my handbag that I MUST have with me and can't live without would be a tube of hand cream……..the most unusual item would probably be an empty altoid tin, just in case I need a container for something. Love your blog!

    now, when I worked, when bored, we girls would have a random 'what's the most interesting/bizzare thing in your bag' day. I always won. I often had a spare pair of boys pants. Thankfully my boys are past that stage now – it'll be a spare pair for me before too long!!!fee x

    I have just looked in my handbag and a few of the more unusual items that I have found are a cookbook, a cake of soap, a satchet of plant fertiliser and a stapler. It must be time for a clean-out!!! – or time to transfer the contents to this beautiful CK bag.

    My can't live without/unusual item in my handbag is my Lucky Ted, purchased in Blackpool when I was nine. He has lived in my holiday bag,school bag and then my college bag, progressed onto my Uni satchel and finally when I started work…my handbag. For a few years he even lived in the baby changing bag when I had my two children. He has seen me through every 'o' & 'A' level and Degree exam I have sat by wishing me luck quietly from my bag. He was in my hangbag when I passed my driving test, got married, honeymooned and admitted into hosiptal for happy times when I gave birth and sad times through a coma. Every new bag I get has to have a special Lucky Ted compartment for him to live.I would never be without him.x

I can't live without tissues, I always have them in my bag and if I don't have a bag with me, I have them in my pocket. I love your blog, I haven't been to visit for quite a while, but I'm so glad I came today!

    I apologize for the "indelicate" nature of my response. I went to the lab for blood tests the other day, and they gave me a routine "take home, poop smear, test kit" to mail in. Still in my purse, UNUSED of course. Sorry… I hope you weren't eating.

    27th October 2011 / 4:40 am

    most interesting thing in my bag……hmmmm……10 corners ripped off pizza boxes! (buy 10, get 1 free) 🙂 In my defense, it took awhile to collect them. We Americans don't eat pizza every night;) I would LOVE a Cath bag big enough to hold pizza boxes AND my huge stash of coupons. Cuz a girl has got to save $ where she can to afford Cath:)

    As you know when raising kids you end up with some pretty strange things in your bag. Half eaten fruit, the odd sock or two…The thing I can't live without in my purse would be my tiny apple-shaped zipper pouch that has my emergency dental floss, lotion, band-aides, and chap stick. It's super handy!

I haven´t got a perfect idea whtat to do with him and because of this it´s still in my bag since a lot of months.Just one minute ago, as I told our younger daughter about your giveaway, she told me to use it as a keyring, and this is what I will do in a minute! So it will still be in my bag the next months!!!lovely hugsmolly

Not because I like spending all the time, just I am a worrier, and always need it on me in case I get lost/stranded/in trouble…etc you know, likey scenarios but could happen!!The most unusual thing in my bag at the moment is a needle and thread… can't even remember why they are in there now!

    Well the most unusual thing in my beautiful handmade 'Happy Loves Rosie' bag is my midwife notes! I am due to give birth any day now (already overdue!!) and have to have them on me all the time. Bit different from the usual lipgloss etc! Makes it even more real every time I look in my handbag that I soon will have a new little addition. Winning would be great and mean I still get to sport my beloved flowers even if the bag is filled with nappies!!Love Lucy xxxx

    Fantastic giveaway, you are spoiling us! Had a quick look in my handbag and probably the one item in there which I can't live without is a little mini game of Operation which keeps my son entertained for hours when we are out and about or waiting in the doctors surgery!

  96. Scarlett
    15th October 2011 / 5:33 pm

    What a fabulous giveaway, ive been eyeing up CK's new range. My handbag is usually full of crappy bits, along with the essentials. Currently the most unusual thing in there is a book on baby animals (my sons fave) which has to go everywhere at the mo. Scarlett x

    15th October 2011 / 4:54 pm

    Great Fab Wonderful Giveaway!!!!!!Ooh – well my handbag is nothing short of a health hazard. However currently I suppose the most unusual thing I have in it is a snail – a bright pink, dead, snail. It is my daughter's dead pet, that she painted and we have to go everywhere with it. She also insists on putting a lettuce leaf in there occasionally – which is annoying – and rather smelly. I say this is the most unusual – but like you said – this is a family show. Please be assured the same fate would not be held for this CK bag xxxxx

  98. Kristen
    15th October 2011 / 3:35 pm

    The most unusual thing in my purse…wet ones…I wash my hands after being everywhere..and I've actually had other people ask if they could have one too! 🙂

    15th October 2011 / 2:52 pm

    Great giveaway! I am between bags at the moment as I no longer need my toddlers nappy changing bag and yet haven't started to use my own hnadbag again. The thing I always carry around with me though is my stick of lipbalm and a pen and notebook. I had a lovely owlie book but my daughter left it at Tescos! Grrr… xx

    15th October 2011 / 12:01 am

    nail scissors. Not so crazy. Except that I've been looking for them for months and haven't cut my girlies' nails in all that time. They may have resorted to picking:( Cath Kidston is my favorite and my best!

    In my bag I have an old screw cap from a wine bottle….often its better value to have a bottle of wine when we eat out but I'd better not drink the whole bottle at that moment. So I take the rest home for later! (pubs tend to keep the screw caps)

  114. DD Brocante
    14th October 2011 / 3:36 pm

    Friends usually accuse me of turning my handbag into a suitcase of sorts! Funniest thing…I got pulled at airport security for a search once b/c of a suspicious item…If I purchase anything of value I never pack it, I always carry it on. I had to explain that the "item" was a cherry pitter! I had been looking for one for ages and found one at a store while visiting a friend! That prize was not going to get lost so I put it in my purse! The security guards had a great laugh and had to show it to all the other guards incase another one ever showed up!

    Great giveaway! Item I can't live without?? a little tin of vaseline!

  117. mizdarlin
    14th October 2011 / 2:46 pm

    My most unusual item is a shower curtain hook (actually, a couple dozen) and I know that being a mother of invention yourself, you'll appreciate what they are for: Everything!Because I sell my handmade goods at a weekly market, I use them for suspending various things from the frame of my canopy such as my signs, my circle scarves, etc. I also end up gifting other vendors with them because when they see me using them, they are always wishing they had some! The thin metal ones, you know, rather like giant pear-shaped paper-clips…12 a dollar at the dollar store…Love the bag so much, fingers crossed!

  118. Floss
    14th October 2011 / 2:19 pm

    Hmm. The most unisual items I EVER had in my handbag must date back to when our boys were little. The day I discovered that I'd been carrying around two bottles of Macdonald's water and two plastic Happy Meal toys for a whole week was the day I decided to buy a smaller handbag! It worked (lol). Thanks for this great opportunity to enter your giveaway, Happy.

    Just having a rummage around my bag and I have pulled out a ball of wool, a rather over-sized pen, 2 chocolate biscuits, a child's toy, 25 pence and a list of things to do as long as my arm with only one thing crossed off!! This is the norm for me I must admit! I do get the odd surprise when the children throw things in (last week included a big (but important stone), endless leaves and twigs and a caterpillar smuggled in!!) Wonderful giveaway, Thank you

    14th October 2011 / 12:33 pm

    14th October 2011 / 12:30 pm

    The thing I cant live without that lives in my handbag is the antibacterial handwash you use without adding water. I volunteer in a charity shop and use it there, also when I take the plastic to the recycling bin and get covered in gone off milk lol

    Well what a beautiful bag and what an awesome giveaway! I just had a look in my own bag to see what I thought the most unusual thing in it is today and I reckon it's gotta be the St John's face shield! (the plastic thing you can use to give mouth to mouth). I sound like a bit of a saddo but it's one of those things i think if I take it out I'm sure to need it (a bit like always having to put the lottery on in case your numbers come up). I do hope never to need it but hey ho, it's staying for now :)

  146. k
    13th October 2011 / 11:17 pm

    Right now the strangest thing in my bag is a staple/nail gun. The can't leave home without it item would have to be Weleda Skin Food-for hands, lips, chapped stuff. So very glad to hear that your sweet girl is on the mend. That must have been so difficult on a dear mum's heart. Here's to good health and lots of everyday joys!
