paper rocks our world!
oh ok...paper,rubber,fiber,clay,good company& great music
....many lovely things rock our world at rock,paper,scissors!
all you midwesterners and everybody else who hasn't stopped in
...whatcha waitin' for!?
a destination,an experience not to be missed! this shop is owned...
coool historic building(on funky historic main street) and all,by a
beautiful young family dedicated to creating a welcoming,happy,
stress-free environment for all who walk through the 100+ year old door!
since the shop has opened in november,corey has lovingly and thoughtfully
started filling the place with only the most fabulous treasures of papers,
unmounted rubber sheets from her childhood bestfriend,christelle la chappelle
aka olive wimple,mounted rubberstamps of all artsy sorts,books,embellishments
and best of all,to this critic,corey sells wares from local artisans and has some
very dynamic workshops planned for the future....and other good things are in the
works...i will keep you posted,of that you can be sure!
after spending time with corey yesterday,chatting about life and the pursuit of paper
and ribbons for todays "cool composition notebook" workshop,i ran off to b&n to buy
some music that i have been wanting:
*james blunt "back to bedlam"(oops,the explicit version,my bad)
....this guy reallly reminds me of an old favorite of mine mick hucknall of simply red,
i got their new cd,"simplified",a few weeks ago...simply wonderful!
*madeleine peyroux's "dreamland"...i believe her first,but just as hypnotic as this.
*the wailin' jennys "40 days"...folk angels,my new favorite.
*neil young "harvest"...i was feeling nostalgic,it was a MUCH simpler time then.......track one.
*syd matters "syd matters" this b&n exclusive is a MUST HAVE!
met tom for a great dinner and his good humor at tony's........
THEN!the cherry on top of the creamy day, when i got home the coveted padded manila envelope was waiting for me!
angelica, had sent this gorgeous card to me with the sweetest sentiment attached and
a bag stuffed with fabulous embellisments,emphasis on flowers!!! so lucky to have you as a friend...so nice to be thought of so kindly.thank~you.
a most enjoyable yesterday.....
