Alright, so: because it was a last minute decision to do this once again, this will be a made to order RLSK. This means that, even though I'm going to show you pictures and tell you about the contents of past kits, this one will be different - fresh handmade goodies, fresh stock of supplies, new ideas and things I want to try, and all that jazz.
SO BASICALLY, the RLSK is my little stockpile of things a proper Regency lady circa, you know, now rather than the actual Regency period, should never be without: a selection of teas and treats, cards and stationery, a Janeite piece of jewelry or two, and of course, some Austenesque books! All stored (except the books) in a handmade book box, painted as your favorite Austen novel.
The box. You can see what mine looks like this picture from the Jane Envy post. Unfortunately, the manufacturer stopped making the wooden book boxes, so now they're sturdy papier mache. (Winner's choice of an empty (and fillable with all your secrets) 1-compartment box or slotted jewelry box - decorated as a book either way.)
Filled with the things listed above, and whatever else I think of on a passing whim...
You need something to do while you're enjoying the tea and biscuits, or whatever, right? So alongside my Survival Kit, the winning Regency Lady will win their pick of 2 of the following:
- Because of shipping costs and fragility of some of the items, this giveaway will be US only, and I really am sorry about that.
- Also, because this will be made to order and personalized based on my discussions with the winner, this may well take its sweet time to get to the winner. Like, maybe it'll be an early Christmas present, I dunno. If you're impatient or concerned about that, you may want to skip this one.
- Ends September 7th, 12a EST. Fill out the Rafflecopter below to enter.
