Random Act(s) of Kindness (RAOK)

Hi everyone!

It amazes me how complete strangers can be so nice!  I have recently been on the receiving end of Random Acts of Kindness from some pretty amazing bloggers who, just because, sent me some things in the mail, without expecting anything in return.

First off -- I was sent this Pocket Teal Finchley (yes, you read it right?) by Vanja of the blog Vanjilla.  We've been exchanging emails quite a bit, and I think she has my taste down pat.  She wrote about her pretty Finchleys and I thought it was wonderful because the color was amazing, and I'm a big fan of the Finchleys.  The next thing you know, it was in the post, and headed towards me!

Here it is!
The blue on this is amazing!

And I have finally found a use for it!  Since I got it in July, I've been wanting to find a special use for it.  It's now my Recipe Filofax, which I'll write about in a separate post.

In my humble opinion, the Finchleys have one of the best color ranges of the newer Filofax styles.  I'm sure you've seen quite a few before, but I couldn't resist snapping a photo of them all-together.

One word, GORGEOUS!

And the Teal just balances out those pale pastels quite well.

Martha Stewart Dry-Erase Labels
and some pretty paper clips.
Next off, Cloudberry wrote about how she used some Martha Stewart Dry-Erase Labels as an 'erasable' notepad in her Filofax.  I thought it was a Genius idea.  And once again, this nice lady offered to send me an extra one she wasn't using.  Along with cute paper clips that oddly enough are on my list of next things to look for in the store.

And lastly, I was desperate to get these tabs.  After just commenting that I couldn't find them anywhere, Charlotte offered to buy them for me.  How nice is that!  And I've been using them quite a bit in my filos.

To these generous ladies, 'Thank You!'.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Hi Doris, you're very welcome. It was a pleasure helping out a fellow Philofaxy fan. I got the novelty paper clips from 'Wilko' as we affectionately call it - a discount store in the UK.

    I'm not sure if they ship overseas. If you'd like some, let me know....

    1. Hi again! I have yet to find a use for those cute paper clips. I'll let you know if I need any more. Thanks again for the offer! (:

  2. The colors of your filofaxes are SO beautiful!

    1. Thanks Tracy! The Finchleys are gorgeous aren't they!

  3. That Teal Finchley is GORGEOUS! Total Filofax envy! I'm drawn to brightly/pretty colored Filo's as those run very few. I'm obsessed with greens right now. Enjoy her. :)

    1. Hi Carla! Greens are pretty hard to come by in Filofaxes, but good luck finding one you like. My jade green Finchley is a Household Binder, so I'm glad I'm using her too right now. Thanks for the comment!

  4. Hello! I was just wondering if you wanted to sell your Finchley Rose Filofax? I have desperately looking for this and can't find one anywhere! Just let me know. Thank you so much for your time!
