A Quick Trip to Haven

While running errands today I was able to make a quick stop at one of my favorite stores in town, Haven. Tucked away on the corner of a quaint street, is this little gem thats filled with some of the most unique treasures for the home. I especially like a little area in the back that has some of my favorite writing supplies. Today I picked up a zippered pouch from Papaya Art (the picture doesn't do it justice), a cute notepad and a lovely french milled lavender soap. I'm going to use the pouch to carry some of my stationery supplies while on the go. It's the perfect case to always be prepared for letter writing. Don't you just love those unexpected "happies" to brighten your day!

Recent Stationery Finds

I thought I would share with you my recent stationery finds. I am always on the lookout for a new,fun and pretty stationery. It is one of my favorite things to buy.

I've always been a fan of Cath Kidston. Her colors are so beautiful and elegant. Whenever I get her catalog, I could look at it for hours. All the pictures are gorgeous. Although her shop is in England you can still buy things online here as well as other retailers such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I was looking on Amazon a week ago and found this box of stationery for only 10.00! It comes with 30 sheets and the envelopes are so sweet.

 While my mom and I were at Barnes & Noble recently I noticed this notecard pack sitting on a shelf. They were too cute! I just couldn't pass them up. ;)

I hope you enjoyed a peak into my recent find. :)
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
