These popped up in AV Workshop Etsy shop last week and I just had to. Ah, the curse of regularly checking your fave eBay and Etsy sellers for new goodies. I am going to have to stop that now because I keep seeing things I just have to have. One bad thing about good prices is that they so easily fall into your basket.
One of them has a lock charm and a key bookmark plus a clasp fastener. I collect lockable diaries and so this was the perfect theme for me. The one I wanted had just sold so Svetlana made me another one with exactly the brick constellation and the leather key bookmark I wanted.
I also bought one with a ship theme. As regular readers know, I love ships of this era (particularly the Man of War and large Ships of the Line). I wrote about this yesterday
Both of these have clasps which means you cannot stuff them but also holds the pages closed if you are carrying them in a bag. They also have spine details in the form of decorative rivets, which are really nice.
I have bought several times from Svetlana before and her service, communication, prices and product are all excellent. To be recommended. I don’t ask for or receive discount on any of my purchases so I am not giving good reviews for any other reason than that I am thrilled with my purchases. I work hard for my money so I am always happy to report on a good shopping experience and product.
Here are my four gorgeous AV Workshop books
And this is my favourite in her shop at the moment. I have always loved grey and purple (and of course grey and pink and grey and green and grey and turquoise….grey goes with everything and is a nice subtle colour!)
