Present & Correct Haul

It makes me very happy to type those words… Present & Correct Haul! Despite the fact that I bang on about this shop allll the time, I’ve never really done a haul as such. I’ve bought the odd thing or been bought presents from there but never done a proper spree before. Until now! On… Read more »

A Great Art Deco Poster

Just a quick one today today this BRILLIANT Art Deco poster: It’s from William W. Crouse: The Art Deco Poster (Published by Thames & Hudson), and I saw it on It’s Nice That.

Review: Huckleberry Woodchuck Bullet Pencil

I’m definitely not the first stationery blogger to talk about Huckleberry Woodchuck’s bullet pencils, but now that I have final got my hands on one, I couldn’t not share it.

A Proper Pencil Sharpener

Yet ANOTHER birthday present I’m afraid (I might even have one more to post about…), this time from my boyfriend, Harry. He got me a Boston 200 desktop sharpener from the 70s.
