Coming clean on a stationery obsession

Yes, as I sit here on a Melbourne-only public holiday Tuesday lured into a bit of online shopping by another beautiful notebook, it dawns on me I may have a stationery obsession.  I simply cannot go past a gorgeous notebook.  Or a pen.  What’s with that?  Or a clever pencil case.  I linger over paper clips and nifty scissors and pins and pencils in stationery shops.

This morning’s conundrum – do I really need to buy this beautiful hardback journal featuring a Florence Broadhurst design?  Will it’s destiny be like other notebooks not used because they’re “too nice to use”?  I do love a bit of Florence.  What a character!  What beautiful designs!

Maybe just knowing it exists is enough.  Maybe I need to put the kettle on and see how I feel about it after I’ve had a cup of tea!

And if I miss out on the Florence one I could always get these from here.

Or this one from UPPERCASE

Or I could keep one of these from my own stock!  I love a bit of Orla Kiely, and these are in my shop!
