I admit it. I love beautiful things.

Most people will try and deny it, but I’m all for embracing my desire for all things to be perfectly pretty. After a trip to the local boutique stationery place, I was even more for embracing it. I was also for spending a small fortune on printed papergoods, fancy notepads and that snazzy tote bag they had in the window. Of course, beauty does not come cheap and I just couldn’t justify spending the price of a small car on a few very attractive pens.

Still, the lady wants what she wants…

Not bad for some old food containers and a bit of wrapping paper, hey?
