penchant for paper...


















I have been in love with paper for as long as I can remember. So, even though I don't scrapbook, the world of scrapbooking has been a dream come true for me. That world combined with the internet and...oh, the loveliness to be had!

In my search for the perfect paper for my baby announcements I came across a new-to-me paper designer, Jenni Bowlin Studio.

My heart goes pitter-patter as I peruse the website. If there were any time period I would like to go back and live in it would be the 1930's, 40's and 50's. I remember loving my mother's old storybooks as a child... the illustrations, the prim and proper-ness of it all. I so wanted to be Nancy Drew's best friend, sometimes I still do. Anyhoo, it's been captured and easier to obtain than the real vintage thing.

Even the logo (above) makes me drool.

I want these calendars just to pin-up, as-is, on my bulletin boards. So simple, so sweet.














I want these ones, too.



















The bird papers are dreamy. My brain is ticking away trying to think of something to do with them.














Haven't you always wanted a plethora of these delightfully simple labels?



















Some cute tickets to tack onto invitations.














Reader and Milk Cap Buttons... what to do, what to do?












Okie-dokie, I'm going on and on. Just one more... these Valentine Bingo Cards would be swell incorporated into some sort of Love Day loveliness, wouldn't they?
