I was slightly gutted to miss out on a Frankie diary once again this year, but the blow was softened by a gorgeous Liberty patterned everyday diary from my mother in law for Christmas and then a couple of days ago another rectangular parcel of loveliness turned up courtesy of a wonderful friend sending a late Christmas present; a Five Year Diary.
The idea being to record snippets from your life each day to build up a bank of memories over 5 years and you'll be able to compare what you got up to on the same day in subsequent years. What a beautiful gift! I'm totally smitten with it; the premise, the colour, the gold-edged pages, the diamond patterned end papers and the gorgeous typography throughout. I've started writing in it already and I look forward to having it to reflect back on in years to come - plus, I might steal this gift idea for other friends of mine because I know some of them will be just as bewitched by it as I am!
