Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
It is always wonderful to see tulips return to the supermarket. I like to think it really is a sign that Spring is not too far away. Tulips are such an interesting flower as they move through various stages. I actually like when they are just beginning to open. There are hints of ruffled edges and the promise of full blooms.
I started the weekend with fresh tulips and three sweet notebooks I had ordered. The notebooks are just the right size for jotting down inspirational thoughts or ideas. I like that they are not too thick and have wider spaced lines.
Since my younger days, I have always been a lover of paper and pens. I remember when the first scribblers came out with colored pages. Oh I was in heaven! In those days, I took such care and time copying my notes from school into these beautiful scribblers. I have to admit, at one point I was probably a bit obsessed about keeping them neat!
To this day I still love beautiful stationary, notebooks etc. anything that is lovely and fresh. With the written word, I can document those elusive ideas that float away if not anchored down.
How about you? Do you love beautiful stationary or notebooks?
