OK - so, many of you know that I bought a load of Filofaxes off eBay back in February, but I had to wait for many of them to arrive, and then got distracted by a host of other things so didn't get round to doing posts about them all individually.
Since then I have also bought a few others, so rather than doing lots of posts I'm just doing one which will be VERY picture heavy... I'm not going to do lots of photos of each one as there are plenty of full reviews out there, so sit back and enjoy :-)
(I'll apologise now for the picture quality as well as I was totally unable to get the flash to work today for some reason - very annoying).
|Pockets - green Botanic and brown Domino|
|Personals - brown Kendal and blue Piccadilly|
|Personal Clangers and pocket Bagpuss|
|Bagpuss inserts - complete with cute quotes including|
"A ship? In a bottle? Where would it sail to?"
|Clangers dividers - complete with indexed address pages|
The Clangers inserts are well worth a quick review - this came with Communication/Meeting, Expenses, Goals/Notes, Monthly Planner, Weekly Planner, Diary Planner (???), and Projects sheets, along with ruled paper.

|Diary Planner (labelled 8 - 19, any ideas?) and Project sheets|

|Flat, flat, flat - and did I mention... super-soft!!!|
|Writing cases and lovely old Filofax|
|Writing case layouts|
|Missing cap - I may try to fix this, or I may just leave it|
alone - it is old and has obviously been well loved :-)
|I love the inside of this - small rings, model...? I'm not sure|
|This may offer a clue... but not to me :-)|
And now on to my non-eBay purchases...
Firstly, the lovely Chrissie, from the wonderful blog Chrissie's Universe, had this little beauty up for sale, and as I'd swapped out my ochre one i just couldn't resist...
|Unfortunately the lighting was shocking, but this is|
the fabulous purple Malden, along with the lovely
Vogue postcard that Chrissie sent with it :-)
My final (until now) purchases came from Margaret of Write at Home - a great online shop that stocks various stationery items, ships internationally and is very helpful. If she doesn't have it available on her website it's always worth sending a mail to see if she can get hold of it :-)
|Back to School in green - looking forward to writing|
my name on this one (and possibly adding a bit of
|Originals - A5 in patent Fuschia and personal|
in yellow (a proper bright sunflower yellow)
|Not Filofaxes - but Margaret also stocks some of the |
Gorjuss range, so I just had to get some
Now all I need to do is find somewhere to store these new gorgeous beings... maybe I can rent a shop (not to sell anything, just so I can have it all beautifully displayed). Tee hee hee.
