If you didn’t know already, I am a big fan of stationery. I collect notebooks. I have two and half drawers full of notebooks. I think I was influenced by my mum, all my life I have seen her loving notebooks and she’d have each notebook for recipes, dream house and so on. I remember that she had a box full of empty notebooks with the sign saying “Keep out” with funny drawing of skull and bone!
Pictured above are my new notebooks:
- Set of three Babes & Hunks A6 notebooks by Chloe Hall Illustration
- A5 hand stitched notebook (Speckled Mustard) by Shedquarters
- Medium notebook (Cornflower) by Leuchtturm 1917
- Set of two 21cm x 13cm Volant Journal by Moleskine
This pen is a Livework brand (Snowgray).
I am not sure if I can bring myself to write in them, they are so pretty! Weirdly (or not?), I always feel my notebook is ruined when I write in it. But I do get over that feeling eventually. I have that notebook to scribble down recipes I found or invented, at the start I was annoyed with myself for ruining it and then I got over it – it is useful and I can’t live without it when I cook.
