The stationery set
The Wall Street Journal reports that despite its tech dependency, the social media brigade is big on old school stationery. I concur; in addition to my arsenal of Blackberry, MacBook Pro and iPad, I’m never far from a notepad and pen. Here are a few of my current stationery obsessions:
Donkey memo holder and clip – spotted at Liberty Christmas press day or available from the V&A shop
Smythson’s new green croc-print Peridot range
Cards by Rifle Paper Co (available from Couverture & the Garbstore)
Muji pens – a 0.5 gel pen on a sheet of optic white A4 beats blogger’s block every time
Coccoina glue – the stick version is more practical but the brush method is more tactile. Fascinating fact: it’s made of potato starch and smells of marzipan
What’s your stationery obsession?

Yes, I love a handwritten note as opposed to an email. I just returned from Australia where I became obsessed with Typo and Kikki K, both shops stocking some tempting stationery!
Notebooks are my real weakness though…
p.s.I love the donkey memo holder

I love that glue! We used to use it at school and I remember sniffing it all the time.

Love that can of Sardines, is it a pin hole camera?

There’s something about stationery that has me think of childhood, the start of a new school term, and being nervously bundled off with a rucksack teeming with new paper and pens.
The Smythson peridot range is just beautiful.
