Instagram Win: Ernest Wright and Son Limited

Recently I was lucky enough to win a prize on Instagram from Ernest Wright and Son. Those who read Mary Corbett's blog will have seen her review.

I admit I've been curious ever since I saw their video (you can watch it here) and was thinking of getting a pair of their 'Large Bow' embroidery scissors to replace my stork scissors (which I admit I hate). I never imagined I'd get to own an entire set.

Included are:
I've already started using the storks and they're fabulous. You can see them prettily decorated with one of the fobs I bought from South Korea. The tips are nice and narrow and give a satisfying snip when you use them. I won't say anymore than that as Mary Corbett has a much better review on them.

But one thing's for sure I know that 30 years from now, these scissors will still look exactly the same as the day I got them. They're made to last!

One more thing before I forget, guess who got her light back :) It actually came in on the same day as the scissors. So for all those OttLite owners who had issues with their lamps, don't throw them away. Contact OttLite customer service, you might be able to get a replacement if it's still under warranty.


  1. Congratulations on your win! Those scissors all look lovely.

  2. I have a pair of Ernest Wright scissors too, and they're fabulous.
    And what great news about your Ottlite!

  3. What a terrific set of scissors! So glad about your Ottlite.
