Not another collection ...


How does this happen? First I bought a little blank book at Pottery Barn to carry in my purse for when I need to make a little note or jot down a phone number - never mind that I have a Palm digital thing to make notes - then I saw another notebook that I liked at Winners. I love what that one says on the cover 'She had not yet decided whether to use her power for good or evil'. It was a toss up between one that said 'Somebody was going to have to set a bad example' and this one; they both just made me smile. Anyway, that made two blank booklets, then I found the third, the nice blue one at a newsstand where I was looking to add to my magazine collection ...
The pretty journal in the background is just lovely - too nice to write in and I probably will just keep it to look at and sigh periodically. So now I have a collection of notebooks. Is this how collections happen with you too? ... Next time, maybe I'll show you my pens. Not that they're special, it's just that there are bunches of them in every room in our house.

Oh Count me in as well - I am a HUGE "let me just buy that one, because I really think it's cute!" (even though I really don't need them)
LOVE the photo you posted of your goodies - Especially the beautiful Bird Journal, as I love Birds.
I have been collecting lots of those Cavallini Journals for some reason!!! Go to www.cavallini.com and check them out - such cool things, and I think you can do a search on where to find their products online too.
Neat post!! xoxo Sher

Heather, it sounds like we were made from the same mold :-)
