Weekend finds

I've treated myself to a few new things this weekend and I'm happy to say I'm pleased as pie with all three of them. One of them I already shared with you here but as a refresher:
via greenergrassdesign
They were $5.95 at a local shop and I don't ever want to go back to regular, ugly pens. Then I used my 40% off coupon for Borders (are they going under?) to buy this book...
source: Amazon
I'm pleased because I've already learned some pretty interesting tips on basic decorating principles. My happiest find, though, happens to be the teeny-tiniest Moleskin I have ever seen and is the perfect counterpart to my new pens...
I purchased this pair of green ones for $5.95 and they are the perfect size for my bag or pocket so, now I have no excuse to forget all those great ideas for the blog that are constantly running through my head (did I just say that?! Yeah, yeah I did.)
via Moleskin
I'm hoping to have some project posted for you all tomorrow, but we'll see (I'm still slow moving). Seeing as how I have the first day off tomorrow in who knows how longI may just do a whole lot of nothing. Any special Memorial Day plans?

It's so much fun to find things that make us happy and do not require a loan to posses. These are bright and cheery, and will get the creative juices flowing. I have tons of these, not just like the ones you have; but I have blank notebooks on every table and in every purse in the house to keep thoughts and ideas in. Problem is, remembering which book I put the thoughts and ideas in. I just love your new 'fun finds'! Looking forward to seeing on those ideas come to life on your blog.

Don't you just love getting a few little things like that now and then? I do - I had the most fun yesterday buying two headbands and a paper back book!!! Very low pressure shopping! hahaha

Great finds!

I love your finds! Incidentally, the big Borders in the city has just vanished over night here in Sydney...maybe you're onto something there - they could well be going under...

I love love love Moleskine notebooks, I go through so many of those gosh darn things every couple of months. If I lost the current one, I'd be in big trouble!
