Paper Canoes, Patrick Shawn, Patchwork Quilts&Cats, Persimmon Envy.
If Patience is a virtue than Persimmons are the perfect plant to push your pertinacious personality. Oriental persimmons take seven years to fruit. 7. I get antsy waiting for my toast to toast. BUT, some lovely garden fairy planted persimmons in the pasture of the house we rent and apparently it is this tree’s 7thContinue reading “Paper Canoes, Patrick Shawn, Patchwork Quilts&Cats, Persimmon Envy.”

I adore pens that write well. There is no end to my obsession with people with glorious handwriting and dedicated journal writing. January 23rd is National Handwriting Day which we will celebrate, of course, with a sale on our wonderful Retro 51 pens and our wide selection of locally made Sara Webster journals and a fun selectionContinue reading “Days of National Tastiness and Hyper-classiness.”
