Every design is easily personalized with your unique colors – you can even create custom color palettes. And that’s not limited to invitations – you have unlimited color options for save-the-dates and programs!

I think my very favorite part about ordering your invitations from MagnetStreet is that you have the option order just a single copy of your fully personalized design. You don’t have to wonder if the real thing will look as good as it does online – you can feel confident that your design is perfect by seeing your color, photos, and fonts in person.

I have a deep love of beautiful things. Objects that are thoughtfully made, that add a little loveliness and charm to life. You know that quote from William Morris? “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” I strive for that. Which is just a long way of getting to my point which is: I’d like you to meet The Mrs. Box and her stunning collection of ring boxes. Needless to say that they fit Mr. Morris’s criteria.

Somewhere down the line, ring boxes were relegated to the realm of utility, but it wasn’t always that way. And Summer Watkins (stylist, blogger, all-around lovely lady) could see no reason it had to stay that way, so The Mrs. Box was born. And I must say, Brava my dear! Well done!

I love that they are modern-day heirlooms. I love the idea of a gentleman kneeling in front of his lady love with one of these in hand – a “harbinger of joy.” I find them irresistibly delightful, and I want one in every color (but if I had to choose it would be The Antoinette for me). And maybe it’s knowing that this pre-war French velvet was made in mills that no longer exist, but there’s a bit of magic about them, too…

GIVEAWAY

UPDATE! This giveaway is now close. Congratulations to the winner Jennigray who said: “If I had to choose just one…Louis V….my ring was my grandmothers and is the most beautiful vintage ring. A Mrs. Box would be the perfect home for it when I sleep and wash dishes!”

To enter, head over to The Mrs. Box and check out all their colors. Then come back to this post and leave a comment telling us which gorgeous velvet box you’d most like to call your very own (good luck picking just one favorite!). The winner will receive a ring box in the color of his/her choice (pending availability), with a gold foil monogram if desired. 

Contest begins Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 5:30AM PDT, and ends Friday, October 31, 2014 at 11:59PM PDT. Winner will be selected by Snippet & Ink and announced on this post. Please note: winner must live in the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec).
