Cause I've got a golden ticket, I've got a golden twinkle in my eye

Ever since I first saw the Wonka Bar handbag by Helen Rochfort I have lusted after it - and who wouldn't.  It encapsulates childhood memories and the quirkiness that I love in independent designers. 

So, when M was lovely enough to treat me to one (without me standing over him with a cricket bat) I was thrilled.  I went for the limited edition chocolate scented one.  Hell, if you're going to do something you might as well go the whole hog.

It came yesterday.  Its. Perfect. I. Totally. Love. It. I. Am. In. Love. With. A. Handbag. Help.

   It came in a handbag equivalent of a sweet shop paper bag.  ACE!  

Front of the bag.  

 Closer up of the front.
It really does smell of chocolate too.  Nom. 

Back of the bag.  I wish I could win a golden ticket.

The very sparkly clasp. 

Stupidly I didn't take any pictures of the inside.  The material inside is bright pink, similar to the wonka bar pink.  There's plenty of space for everlasting gob-stoppers and three-course dinner bubble gum.  It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap.

I suspect it will be more of an evening bag rather than a day bag, although I think I'll probably wheel it out at weddings, christenings, bar mitzvahs etc.  I think everyone should buy one.  Or two.

Today we've been out to Tropical World - I'll blog about that tomorrow.  Now I have Sunday tunes playing and I'm drinking tea, bliss out.

Hope your Sunday has been like a marvellous river of chocolate.  As long as you didn't jump in and get sucked up the chocolate extractor pipe, silly.

OMG, this is just the COOLEST thing I ever saw....

A Willie Wonka Bar handbag that actually smells like chocolate! And it's really great-looking too!

However, being the chocolate lover that I am, I'd be tempted to EAT it - HA!
