I'm a fool for pretty paper, pens, pencils and things like that. I could spend a good hour in an office supply store or the pen and paper and stationary section of Walmart, Dollar Store or anywhere like that looking at everything. I stopped by the Dollar Tree this afternoon and look what I found!
They had some beautiful, floral clipboards, notepads, notecards and pens. And they were only $1.00 each. I bought a pretty floral petite clipboard, 2 notepads, and a small box of notecards with envelopes and a pack of 3 floral pens. I wanted to buy more stuff, and I may go back tomorrow and get some more. This kind of thing makes a great gift for someone who loves to write or journal. They even had some small journals and they were square. I may go back and look at those too.
I'm also crazy for floral journals and even if I have several if they are reasonably priced, I've been known to buy one or several. You see, the way I figure it is if I love them, then chances are that someone else will too, so I like to keep a stock of things that like on hand for last minute gifts. I must get this stationary fetish from my mother because she loves those things too.
This week I've been all wrapped up in Alice in Wonderland. Through the Looking Glass to be exact. A friend of mine loaned me her copy of a wonderfully illustrated edition. She got hers at A.C. Moore for about $3.00. Unfortunately, A.C. Moore closed their store in our city, so I didn't make it to get a copy. Anyway, my friend and I really know how to find a bargain. It's because we don't have much money to spend, so when we find treasures, we have to take advantage of it.
Here are some pictures of the book and a couple of inside pages.
