Seth Apter at The Altered Page is hosting Paper Stacks, an online collaboration. How apropo, because paper stacks, I’ve got ’em. I love the touch, the smell, the feel. Earlier in my life, I called my love for paper, “work.” Every accountant has stacks of paper, right? But now, I just have to be honest with the world. I LOVE PAPER.
This enduring cupboard once was filled with stacks of patterns and material, the love of my husband’s grandmother. I am honored to now fill it with my own love, the vintage papers, books and boxes mostly from her attic. I wish for you this blog was scratch ‘n sniff. Mmmm, the smell of history lies on these shelves.
The boxes are very impractical. I need to label them to remember what treasures lie inside, but they are so charming I just had to put them to use.
