*Sigh.... I'm in love

For years I have had a love affair with stationery... Yes, you heard me stationery.


I love those notebooks and journals with beautiful colours and graphics, lovely lined paper with pens to match. And don't get me started on pens and fine nibs......

Cards, year and years of  birthday, christmas, anniversary cards, I keep them all in a storage box in my wardrobe.

My current stationery 'love affair'  is with this beautiful range of journals, cards, notebooks, post-its and this cute as luggage tag  that I found in a local store...  How could you not love papaya


But here's the thing, see that top image, that is the luggage tag that I bought for Sam, she is going to Paris and it is so cute I just couldn't resist it, it is going to look very stylish on her luggage. No prob, it's not made of paper.

 The problem is I have bought the notebook for my sister in Brisbane for her birthday, and that notebook is tugging at my heart strings... It is gorgeous, every page has stunning drawings on it, and the paper quality is superb.

I know that she will love it...  and I will send it to her, but LOVE is painful ..*sigh

Those are beautiful, Angela! I love things like this, too! I know your sister will love her birthday gift! Perhaps you should get one for yourself to celebrate being a generous lady with great taste!! Hope you have a great and colorful weekend!
