Stationery Porn

Stationery is one of my favourite things, I like it all!  From old letters and stamps to crisp new notebooks fresh out of a packet and all things in between.  I love imagining the possibilities of blank sheets of paper and cannot help myself when it comes to old correspondence as the lure of fashioning my own story for the writer behind the words is too great.

This little notebook was an inexpensive one picked up on eBay but it combines my penchant for used stamps and flowing handwriting in it's decoration so it seemed only fitting to photograph it in company with the real thing; a letter written in 1920 and several handfuls of pretty stamps.








Friday is here and tomorrow I'll be headed to Heathrow to be reunited with the fella after three weeks apart, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Take care,
Jem xXx
