Oops, my bad. This guy has nothing to do with couture paper. He's in a photo I found at the Les Ombres blog that I just discovered. Nice.
OK. Now paper. Designer paper.
Yesterday, I had to buy a few graduation gifts for some college grads. So I stopped by the stationery store at Vroman's in Pasadena to look at journals, pens, thank you cards, all that good stuff.
And I guess I've been out of the loop for a while, but I found the greatest fine papers by Vera Wang and Kate Spade. Yeah. The designers. How about that. Couture paper. So to speak.
I gotta tell you. Their fine paper lines are nice. The designs. Excellent. Quality of the paper. Excellent. Found myself spending beyond the graduation gift budget for some nice new paper and stationery for myself.
Now. I just need someone special to write a note to. Hmmmm. A special someone. Maybe some lounging in or around a pool. Hmmmm. Nah, let me get back to creating such stories in novels.
