You may have realised I’ve been off the grid for the last few days. This is because I had my greatest friend staying and we had not seen each other for far too long. A glorious time was had by all! I am tired but happy and hope to be back to normal with all three blogs by Tuesday.

I have a passion for stationery, the more beautiful the better. Having said that, even a plain white envelope has a charm all its own.

I’m hot-footing it to the hospital tomorrow for my cataract operation. I leave you with some of my favourites for Valentine’s Day. I should be back before then. Mind you, while one would normally expect to be in and out in a day with such a surgery, I’m told I have to stay in the night before and the night after. I’m spitting with rage at the ghastliness!

All of these pieces are my own except for Kissing on the Chaise-Longue which is a vintage postcard I restored.

Valley Rose

This weekend I have been creating products at my First Night Design store on Zazzle with the Valley Rose design and enjoying it immensely.  I hadn’t planned a post today but I was so taken with the look of the Messenger bag that I wanted to share it.  (I can hear my late mother saying, ‘Get you! What makes you think you’re so clever?’)

The Snowman Envelope
The Snowman Envelope

‘Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end’. Virginia Woolf

‘I don’t want to push the envelope. Let the envelope stay in the middle of the table. I’ll just make you laugh.’ Rita Rudner

‘Alongside my ‘no email’ policy, I resolve to make better use of the wonderful Royal Mail, and send letters and postcards to people. There is a huge pleasure in writing a letter, putting it in an envelope and sticking the stamp on it. And huge pleasure in receiving real letters, too.’ Tom Hodgkinson

Sleeping Beauty Gift Wrapping Paper
Sleeping Beauty Gift Wrapping Paper

Having just sold some of my Sleeping Beauty wrapping paper, I decided Princess Aurora, as she has been known since the animated Disney film in 1959, deserved a post of her own.

The original story, The Beauty sleeping in the wood, or La Belle au bois dormant, was published by Charles Perrault in 1697 as part of his Histoires ou contes du temps passé, before being taken up by the Brothers Grimm.

According to ListVerse, the original story has unpleasant overtones in that ‘the young woman is put to sleep because of a prophesy, rather than a curse. And […] the king seeing her asleep, and rather fancying having a bit, rapes her. After nine months she gives birth to two children (while she is still asleep). One of the children sucks her finger which removes the piece of flax which was keeping her asleep. She wakes up to find herself raped and the mother of two kids’. Macabre, mais oui!
