Well here we go again with Part 2 of the New Arrivals! Yesterday decided to be Amazona day How lucky was I?
I told you in previous posts I was way behind on my Blog! But these two beauties arrived yesterday.
The Black Amazona I found on Adspot and came from Germany. I was looking around for a Black Amazona in Personal size for quite a while now! When I spotted it I really wanted it!! I’ve seen it on Filofax NL at Euro 132,- ex. P&P! A bit too much! When I emailed the owner she told me there where two others interested in this Filofax… Luckily she emailed back after a few days (?) not really sure… that it was available again. Thanks Ena!!!
The Almond Amazona was just waiting for me at the dutch web shop I also found my brand new Personal Portland and brand new Green Windsor. I’d been stalking it for a long long time now; months even! Even put it in my shopping basket but never checked out before.. When I started to search for it again I knew I just couldn’t resist!
I used to own a Personal Amazona already in Red. That Amazona was swapped for a Mini Malden in Ochre and a Pocket Amazona in brown. Both unused at the moment as I’m totally back in Personal size right now. The Red I never did like much because the red is too bright a red for me. I expected it to be a bit more cherry. That Amazona was my very first Filofax and how little did I know then! I even used it for a few years!!! Can you believe that! Sticking to one Filofax for years! I wish that could happen to me again! I’m very pleased with these two new additions. With the Red Amazona out of the collection I do have now four Amazona’s in my collection; Personal in Black and Almond and Pocket size in Black and Brown. Love them all!
After the purchase of the Malden in Ochre and the Osterley in Plum I’d been a little lost in FF land… For some reason I couldn’t fall in love with the Plum although it’s such a lovely binder! And having it in A5 size already you’d expect there would be no surprises left. I guess my expectations were just a little too high. I don’t really like the flat cover. It’s to me a bit weird with the pattern (croc). Like it’s painted on it or something. After using the Plum for a weeks now a DID started to like it better every day and it really grew on me. But no love here
However the Almond Amazona makes it all up for that! I totally love her!!! I really wanted a lighter Filofax to match upcoming springtime. Does that make sense at all?
So out of the Osterley into the Amazona!
Here are some pictures of the arrival! Enjoy! And let me know what you think! Which one do you prefer?
On the left: the parcel from Filo Manie. You can check out her blog here. On the right the parcel from the ‘secret secret’ store I shop all my vintage Filofaxes!
Ena wrapped everything so nicely! (left) and she even left all the Danish inserts in! Appreciate that!
The Almond came in the wrong box; Personal Adelphi but I don’t mind. It’s the final one they have had ever in stock!
In and out of the box! The Almond just has the most perfect aligned rings ever! It even came with some inserts; the cotton cream ones which I love. There just wasn’t any diary present, but that’s just fine. Wouldn’t have used it anyway. I was really surprised the Almond came with inserts. My previous Filofaxes came both empty.
A good close up! Click on the picture to enlarge!
Lovely color! I will do a tour very soon! I know I also promised the tour of the Osterley. Just to show you all the stuff I keep in there. I will do that post also as I’ve been saying this for such a long time now!
The next arrival features; The Domino, The Sketch (say what?!) and the Metropol Compact.
Hope you enjoyed this! See you next time!
