3 paper products I need (and it's not tp)

I've run across three very special (paper) items over the past couple of weeks, and although I can't really summon enough justification to purchase them, I can't let the opportunity go by to at least share them. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I think I DO need these things and I'll tell you why...
My sweet friend Flynn sent me a link to these postcards. Need I expound on why these are awesome, plus if I bought them I could send Flynn a postcard.

I told B that we would make our own DIY coasters, but come on...these are PEACOCKS! Plus they're the prettiest shade of pink and we could use more than one set of coasters, right? These would make a lovely companion to my ostrich pillow.

Look! It's a loaf 0f notebooks...ummm that I could write my bloggie notes in. Here's the thing about these...they've been blogged about a lot but NO ONE gives a link to where I can purchase them. Do you know? If you do, please share because these would look great on my desk at home.
via Twig and ThistleThese are all functional so it's not like they'd be a complete waste of money.
In case you're wondering, justifying my actions is a fine tuned skill that took many years of practice to perfect.

Well, regardless if they end up in your studio or mine, I'm so glad you shared them with us :)

does seem to be a mystery as to whether or not the sliced bread notebooks are even for sale - here is the creator's site:
http://www.burakkaynak.com/

maybe you can contact him? great way to get people looking for them though, don't make them available for sale until they've been spread all over the internet!

oh no beth, you're absolutely right! maybe i'll beg the artist to market the loaf...

I think you do need these things.:) One can never have too many notebooks. And do you really know a woman who cannot justify her purchases??:) I always justify mine by being such a thrifty shopper. After all, I save all that money.:))

Have a wonderful day!

I adore those coasters!! I can justify with the best of them I just don't know if the hubs always buys it. Ah ha.

Love that loaf of notebooks... I'm a bit of a list keeper, so I each one could be for different kinds of list (ok, maybe I should have said slightly OCD ha).

Love those coasters - and the notebooks are darling! It's the first time I've seen them, so consider yourself as having performed a public service.

drollgirl said...

i can justify just about any purchase, too! that is a special skill for the ladies. and i see the men doing it all the time, too, so they should not give us any grief! and these items seem like they are must haves!! ;)

Jennie Bee said...

Cute! I love it!

Quixsa said...

I am always up for mustache humor, that is for sure!! Those are a kick in the pants! so funny.
I, too, go through envious paper item phases.
