notes

I always like to have a note book with me. In fact I normally have more than one, in my pocket, in my bag. Note books for lists of things to do, things to buy (usually tinned tomatoes) things to look at, note books for ideas and things to make, thoughts.


Perhaps this makes me sound more organised than I actually am though. Things get written in all sorts of places, and sometimes I think I should just have one big notebook to capture everything...


But then I wouldn't have the pleasure of picking out books to use... big, tiny; soft cover, hard cover, ring bound; smooth paper, rough paper, elasticated closure...


These little books are for notes I think (or for thoughts. or for drawings of birds?) Soft paper cover, screen printed with feathers in greys and dark blues. 20 pages of various recycled papers, cream, white speckled. Each one is unique. I like little note books.


(and don't get me started on pens...)

I am the same, I make a new little notebook once a month - one for me and one for my boyfriend (who uses it much more than I do. And pens? oh dear lord, there are not enough jars in my apartment for all my pens.

Me too ... glad I'm not alone. The pleasure of opening a fresh notebook is hard to describe...the feathers are very appropriate!

You can never have enough notebooks or pens or papers or pencils or books.........

They look great and I like the feathers on the covers.

If there is one thing I like more than little notebooks, it's notebooks with feathers on them! Yours are a treat.

I just found you! I love notebooks this much too...it must be genetic because my eight year old daughter loves them too. She wants to be a writer so she says she needs tons of them...as well as pens, and pencils.

These are gorgeous I adore feathers! I love notebooks too! I feel lost if I'm not carrying one around, and pens, dear lord I'm an addict, sadly I misplace them all the time, they get lost in the time space continuum along with my socks
