Okay, so my birthday isn’t for another couple of months but I have learnt that if I like something & don’t spring into action, you know, credit card action, then by the time the occasion occurs, the ‘thing’ I wanted to buy is no longer there.
Hubby is always asking- ha ha, yeah right! What I want for birthday/Christmas, well that’s twice a year at least. Although in fairness, he has excelled himself this year, with a little help from my tippety tappity fingers on the keyboard & the little piece of plastic that we share.
My Valentine’s blog featured a gorgeous necklace amongst all the other wonderful pieces, well that necklace is now mine!
I know this is about my birthday but thought Hubby should be praised 😉 anyway onto the main subject. I have been following a website & blog for a little while now & have been ooohhing & ahhhing over their products & trying to decide what hubby can treat me to next. Then a few weeks ago a newsletter landed in my inbox with new products & offers, well how is a girl to refuse the offer of a hand crafted handbag?? Well you just cannot pass up the offer can you, well I didn’t. It took me a while to decide on the design & colour & it arrived at the beginning of the week., to say I am thrilled is an understatement.
It is made from silk, hand crafted by a husband & wife team in a remote village in Thailand. The website is www.thaisilkmagic.com & the customer service is excellent, so friendly, professional & gorgeous products too. It took a week to arrive, all the way from Thailand!!! Royal Mail take note, it takes you that long to deliver in the UK at times.
The bag is so light, you hardly know you have it on your shoulder, okay I haven’t yet filled it with the usual house brick but it is so light & soft & the quality is fantastic. Here is the inside, well yes, I know you can distinguish the outside from the inside but once my fingers start tapping away, there is no stopping them.
You know when photographs just don’t do justice to something, well mine just don’t convey the quality of the silk, the craftmanship that has been used to produce this bag. It would not be out of place on the shelves of shops such as Harrods & other highly priced B&M shops. Was it expensive? No the prices are unbelievable for the quality & delivery from across the globe too.
Please do visit their website & not only browse their beautiful items but read about who they are & what they are doing & why. You will not be disappointed with any purchase you make from these lovely people & you can be sure they will look after you & your purchase has been hand made with love for you.
Well off to pack up my birthday present back into its box until my birthday – it may get a test drive before though 😉
