Notes, Journals, Stationary::Quick Links

I LOVE stationary, paper, pen's and journals and will compulsively purchase even though I have many of all these things. There is nothin' better than having a clean white piece of paper and a sharp pencil or great pen to doodle on, a nice crisp lined piece of parchment to write a letter to a friend or a great journal to write your thoughts in.
The Inspiration behind this post is one of my closest friends Ashley, she will be taking an extended trip this summer which gives me an excuse to use all of my stationary! I can't wait to sit down with a hot cup of coffee and write a note to a Pal with my Pen.
I hope your inspired to pick up a pen this summer and write to one of your friends because another great feeling is receiving a letter in mail! Sometimes you need a break from the digital world.

A quick monday blurb on LOVE!

Jesse and I just celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary! I was all about love all weekend long and am still on cloud nine, hopefully nothing will dampen my mood! This weekend we were so blessed, our friend Tyler got us into Disney land for free and we were wished HAPPY ANNIVERSARY twenty one times by D-land employees because we picked up the happy anniversary pin first thing, it's free, and they have happy b-day, I'm celebrating and a I graduated pin. We were even escorted to the front of a ride line, it's a magic pin!!! 

Another fun fact about the Dunstan family is that we love music and have recently started our record collection, so we picked up a few new records this weekend, you can definitely say we are turning into record junkies when you would rather find a new record that buy a new article of clothing ahhhh... I hope this doesn't get out of hand!

Lastly, we finished out the weekend with a fun day at the park and a mean game of frisbee, so excited about our summer frisbee club!

It's been a great 5 years!

The Match Book Diaries Part 1

As you know I love going and discovering new treasures at flea markets, rummage sales & estate sales and a couple weeks ago I went to do a little rummaging and found a few things, a new belt for .50 cents, a small jar and lid that goes really well in my kitchen for .25 cents a vintage purse for $2.00 and one of my favorite finds to date, a big box filled with vintage and semi new match books! I would like to think that this collection has a great history, maybe some old man would collect a match book from each one of his many adventures or maybe he just smoked a lot, no telling for sure but whatever the reason I think I'm gonna add to this collection and collect a match book from my own expeditions. Anyways, as I was poring over this $2.00 find I was so inspired, each book has it's own style, some skinny, some fat, and some oddly shaped, the logos were equally inspiring and seeing the different font styles was the best part! Here is part one of The Match Book Diaries: NAMES.

The above is a fun little lay out of some match books that are all names of restaurants and stores.

This little  turtle guy isn't a name or anything I just thought it was so cute!
