Love at first sight

This was my Valentines gift, and may I say I am totally smitten.



I have expressed my utter devotion to Miss Kirstie Allsopp before Well the girl has only gone and done it again and decided to collaborate with M&S, I am a girl completely spoilt by this collection.



This particular item pretty much is everything I could have wished for, a longing for handwritten letters and decorative tags, this tin homes everything a budding writer could want.

Having recently written to Gemma and Jazmine, I can say I enjoy putting together the contents of a good letter. My blog lets me express a lot of my creativity, but there are still personal parts that only come out when a paper and pen is involved.



This set comes homed in a beautiful keepsake tin, and contains: decorative cards, tags, ribbon, 7 stamps and an ink pad. I must admit I have been longing for a thank you stamp for quite a while, I always forget to say thank you to the most special people, so I am already embarking on putting together some thank-you cards.



The collection at M&S also includes a stunningly beautiful sewing basket, cake stand, and the cutest tape measure I have ever seen.





As daft as it sounds the thrill of stamping ink, and creating lovely text just like this, definitely beats a technological alternative. Here’s to letter writing and crafts.

  3. Oh, that's really sweet. There's something so satisfying about writing a letter. I used to write quite a few but now I don't seem to have anyone to write to!

  9. Gorgeous! I'm a massive fan of all things epistolary and really do feel that it's becoming somewhat of a lost art which only makes me more passionate about it :)

    Great Valentine's gift.

  10. OMG that is an amazing gift. So sweet. I am also a fan of the hand written letter, sending and receiving!

    BTW - The Mr Darcy on the cover of the book in my giveaway is very unattractive. It offends me so!

    The art of hand written letters are dying a slow and painful death and it really is such a shame
