Stationery Haul

I am a sucker for stationery, I have so much. I really do not need anymore, but I'm always looking out for more. Does anyone else collect all things stationery? Do you have more notebooks than Paperchase?

One very dull and wet day my daughter and I popped into Cambridge. I was very excited as I would get to visit John Lewis, Tiger and Paperchase. We parked up, making a note of the floor we are on (I am good at forgetting so I take a photo)

First stop was Paperchase, Oh so many new and pretty things. I decided to look at the postcards first, picking up a couple that made me smile. They may become dashboards for my planner or maybe just to make me smile when looking at my noticeboard.

Having seen some washi tape I liked online we went on a search. Oh my I picked it up to my daughter saying "really mum? you don't need more washi" I can forgive her, she does not understand!

Next into Tiger, because we had gone in early the shop was nearly empty. I was a little disappointed as nothing really stood out. I think was visited in between seasons so not much new to see. I did pick up this pack of sticky notes, liking the colours especially the black ones.

OK now to pop into John Lewis, I had a £25 voucher burning a hole in my pocket. I headed straight to the Kate Spade stationery as I knew this is where I would spend my voucher. Lusting after the gold dot pencil case for a while and today was the day she was coming home with me :)

So pretty, she contains 2 pencils, ruler, eraser and pencil sharpener 

Back to the car and onto Hobby Craft. I did not find much at all that took my eye, but they had a load of new washi tape

When I returned home with my bag of new goodies I was greeted with a order I had made with Cloudy Cow.

Perfect stickers to use in my snail mail and journal. 

Such a lovely day spent looking around shops and laughing with my daughter :)
