I've always loved stationary and when I was a child I was more excited about starting the new school year and getting new books than Christmas. Nothing has changed really, I love a new notebook or journal fresh and crisp and my love of stationary doesn't stop there. I love envelopes and writing paper and cards too! So when Stella (who has a lovely blog) was offering a chance to try out one of her new items I jumped at the chance. I mean seriously look at the tiny telephone and typewriter! too cute. So today I've been writing away catching up with some correspondence, putting one in with some fabric I'm sending to a friend. Do check out the Frank and Dean shop, they have some lovely stationary, it's all stunning. I've got my eye on a personalised portrait, just trying to choose the right photo.
The weather was terrible for most of the day, perfect for a spot of baking, I made some lemon muffins from a recipe in the latest Taste magazine. It was actually a recipe for mini loaves, I just used my muffin pans and shortened the cooking time. Yum perfect on a rainy day.


  1. ooh- that stationery looks so great! and so do those lemon muffins. now i want to make some! happy friday to you.

  2. I have my eye on a portrait too- thinking it would be an ideal fathers day present. must get onto that soon, actually! Must get round to sending my little envelope too.
