I was absolutely ecstatic with the way my new gift enclosures from Etsy seller Mary B turned out (above). I love the pattern — it reminds me of De Gournay! These will be perfect when heading for dinner at a friend’s to tuck in with a bottle of wine, which I like to wrap in a bottle-sized cello bag along with a wine key and tie off with pretty ribbon. A few other really pretty spring desktop and paper finds below, but I want to specifically mention my new obsession: these soft-touch gel pens which write ultra-fine but really flow nicely and have a great hand feel. I write a lot by hand and these FANTASTIC. I must also share that I absolutely loved the winter candle I bought from Hotel Lobby and have determined their signature scent will be my next order. I had girlfriends over a few weeks back when I was burning the winter candle, and they both said: “What is that? It smells SO good.” Beautiful, sophisticated scents! And finally, this is my current everyday planner — it is inexpensive but absolutely perfect for my needs, as I create long to do lists against each calendar day. I used to buy much more expensive agendas but found that they were heavy, bulky, and had a lot of features I didn’t use. This is comparatively slim and lightweight with a ton of space for doodling and lists. Last but not least, Serena and Lily extended its 20% off sale, which means this lamp (seen below) is still on sale!
