Look, oh look what came in the mail!
Papier Valise is a beautiful little online boutique run by Janice in Canada. Little bits and pieces of crafty vintagey everything. This site is like porn for the handmaking-woman. Yes yes, add to cart, add to cart!!
And she also has a sweet blog, called Scissor Variations, which rarely if ever mentions porn or the Beastie Boys. (She does like ee cummings though, so p-raps there’s something in common after all).
Now, please understand, I struggled with this post… should I share this amazing discovery? Eventually the Catholic Guilt won out, and I felt you should all know about it. Let the people buy butcher’s string- and she saw that it was good.
DO NOT tell me you’ve been shopping with Papier Valise for years. Of course you have.
Believe it or not, I didn’t realise how colour-co-ordinated my purchases were until I opened the box.
Do I have a plan for all these lovely bits and pieces? Course not. But it’s very important to have these things waiting for when inspiration strikes, don’t you think?
