Sorry, couldn't resist a picture of my bargain iris's ( purchased on New Years Eve at our local supermarket for 10p, not to mention the 6 pack of Muller corners for 1p - love a bargain!)
On to the subject on hand, oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR by the way!!....Stationary...who doesn't love a bit of it? Every since I was a little girl, my sisters and I have all have had a deep passion for lovely pens, notebooks, paper, cards etc, and especially enjoyed family holidays to Germany, and a rake around the stationary floor of a department store, where they seem to excel in such items. For Christmas this year I received 2 items of very lovely stationary from my brother-in-law who lives in Chicago and has learnt over the years that he cannot go wrong by doing his Christmas shopping for the females of the family in Anthropologie
I particularly love these retro feel recipe cards, these will be particularly useful for copying down the many recipes I have found on the Internet, but have never got round to printing off (coupled with the simple pleasure of hand writing a recipe with a nice pen...ahhh). I am now on the look out for a suitable tin/box to keep them in - this could be the beginning of a new, more organised me!
