You Had Me at Office Supplies

I love them SO much that when the catalog would pass my desk at work I would have to restrain myself. Though the funny thing was that I never really ordered anything, nothing was cute. And I wanted cute. Damn cute.  A few years ago I found this site.  It has been a problem ever since.

Have you ever been complimented on your paper clips? I have. They were Italian.
What? Did you think I was not serious about my LOVE?

In case you had any doubt here is a poem to demonstrate my adoration.

It may be fine, medium, black or blue.

Though writing on a manila one would never do. 

They make me smile when I put them in a pile.

I can add up all the reasons,

that they should change with the seasons.

I am one.  It all started during a time of oversized blazers and scooped neck leotards.

 circa 1992. I am the one sporting the blanket/rug blazer. 
Don't I look like a complete arse?

And it continues today. This lunchbox is my current British obsession.

I realised that I did not have anything that truly represented my love for all things English. So I found some items that could be my own little British invasion for my American home.

This poster would be fab framed in our family room/basement. 
Or this lovely vintage tea tin for jewelry, cotton balls or wait for it....tea.

This would be a little much, right?

Anyone for a spot of tea?
