WIN! A Bombay Duck aluminium letter


Anyone who knows me will tell you I have a bit of a thing for letters. I’ve loved fonts and lettering for years – my most favourite book of all time was a lettering book that showed you how to draw lots of different fonts. I still have it. And I can remember my Nanna teaching me calligraphy, and my obsession writing it absolutely everywhere.

Now I’m all grown up, my love of letters hasn’t waned. My home is full of lettering – I have wooden blocks with letters on, vintage alphabet stamping blocks, colourful 3D letters, and I spent two years completing this gorgeous Emily Peacock tapestry that spells out KISS.

Maybe it’s tied in with my love of the written word, but I think it’s more visual than that. I love the shape of letters, and the beauty of different fonts. Fonts can evoke such powerful memories and such a sense of history and place. The style of a letter immediately gives you a sense of time and style. Big, bold, modern letters. Beautiful cursive scripts. Industrial-style stencilling.

When Bombay Duck, a company with a fantastic selection of gorgeously bright home accessories and gifts that I’ve been a fan of for years, offered me the chance to host a giveaway before Christmas, their stunning aluminium letters were the first things I thought of. Worth £24.50 each, these solid cast aluminium alphabet letters are a beautiful way to add a personal touch to any room. They’d make a perfect Christmas gift, or keep them for yourself as a treat.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment before Monday 19 December. The winner will be selected at random, and as long as I have your full details by 20 December you should get your letter before Christmas.

This competition is now closed, and the lucky winner was Muddling Along.
