Gillio Pocket Mia Cara in Epoca Gold

I have an A5 Epoca Gold Gillio Mia Cara but it is very big and heavy. When I heard that Laurie was selling her Pocket version, I jumped at the opportunity. It was soon winging its way to me and arrived last week.

The box arrived two days before I was able to fetch it, so when I did I opened it as soon as possible, even though I hadn't even had time to make my bed that day!

Laurie had packed it beautifully - in all the original packaging so I could get the Gillio feeling!

Of course one of my cats had to get into the box immediately...

And look! Together with the Gillio box was an envelope with RAKs. Including my beloved Martha Stewart tabs, which are impossible to get here

A little Gillio box - it seems so small compared to my A5 box

Ooh the Gillio dust bag!

And inserts and pen, all securely sealed and packaged
And inserts and pen, all securely sealed and packaged. I don’t use the pens as I have gold rings in my Gillios and so use a copper-barrelled Frixion Slim instead. There is no calendar but I will be using Qimmis Cupcake vertical week on two pages. In my A5 Mia Cara I use Burde vertical week on two pages.

This Mia has silver rings. I have gold ones on the way to me from Gillio and will change them myself.

  1. Absolutely stunning! I never, ever thought I’d think of leaving my Malden, but I’m already planning to save pennies for the medium compagna in epoca green with those glorious gold rings if my Malden ever falls apart. Good thing the Malden is holding up well though, I’ve got a lot of saving to do!!

    Enjoy your new baby 🙂
