• urghggh…we had a bit of a drama last night. The Captain tried to fix a pipe for the pool pump that happens to be adjacent to my office and well…my whole office flooded. He was not amused to say the very least.

    Anyway it got me thinking that seeing as i didn’t get myself organised in my office last year because we moved into the new house right when we both had our busiest times at work, i may get a little time over the next few days to create some order in the chaos and start from the beginning. I have magazines from years ago with my stories in them that need to be filed and there’s a whole lotta junk that must be chucked.Plus there are deadlines to get my head around and my new net baby’s launch is imminent…

    I am feeling a little trip to Waltons coming up…i think some white Leverarch files are in order along with some nice new pens and some get-organised goodies and well…stationery stuff to make things better.

    Love the old school maths flash cards and the tape measure ribbon kills me

    I spotted these swoonworthy vintage-inspired stationery items on Australian website Letterbox Co (isn’t the name great?)...they’re currently closed for shipping until the 20th and yippeee, they ship to South Africa, the red and white baker’s twine you see below is going to be mine, all mine!!


    Have a happy day! V x

      this is so inspiring! I’m also overhauling my office space, so thanks for the great ideas… have you see this shop? Not sure if they ship to SA but at least its a treasure trove of good ideas.

      I’m a stationery slut too, and recently discovered kikki-k while on holiday in Singapore. Drool over their website kikki-k.com.

      I just bought tape measure ribbon from Merrypak that is (dare I say it?) even cooler than the ribbon above, and ridiculously cheap!
