Folksy Friday - Taking Notes

I admit it, I have a bit of a *thing* about stationery... I have way more notebooks than I actually NEED (but since when has need come into it?) and yet I still can't resist a pretty notebook when I see one! I keep them in my bag for shopping lists, wish lists or to take contact details for people I meet. I have a them scattered around the house because you never know when inspiration might strike. I have them by my bed - for late night scheming and early morning to-do list writing whilst drinking my wake up cuppa.

I even buy plain A6 notebooks so I can cover them in beautiful fabrics (here's a great tutorial from my other blog if you fancy doing the same - it's a great way to show off small pieces of gorgeous prints!)

So this week's Folksy Friday is all about exquisite pocket stationery. I hope you are taking notes...

 1. Fox notebook  by Kate Broughton proves that sometimes simple is best. 2.  Cat Notebook by MyPipSqueak, inspired by their rescue cat Lovely Stella. Purrrrfect.   3 These Leather satchel notebook by Beauty Bound Books must be the ultimate in stationery geekery. Definitely on my notebook wishlist!  4.Beautiful Vintage Embroidered notebook by Kate Bowles Books is hand bound and covered with a piece from a vintage tablecloth. I love the exposed spine detail!  5.  This fab set of 4 hand stitched Mini suede notebooks from Peony and Thistle are just perfect for pockets and would make great stocking fillers too  6.  A Walk in the Woods notebook by The Little Bird Press is part of their lovely range that includes gift tags and mugs too!


This is just a small selection of my favourite finds - want to see more? Head over to my Taking Notes Pinterest board . . .

I did warn you I was just a wee bit obsessed!

  5. I love all of those. I like the idea of having a pocket sized notebook. Mine always get lost in my bag so one that fits into the side pocket would be ideal!
