I began reading the blog Tea for Joy because it's a fun way to see London (since I can't afford to go jaunting off to the U.K. whenever I feel like it) and because I love almost anything having to do with tea--tea itself, teacups, tea parties, etc. In fact, you might remember that I actually got engaged over a cup of tea!
Well now Lynne, who writes Tea for Joy, has given me another reason to love her. She's started a stationery shop called Papermash that sells all kinds of goods from independent artists around the world. I certainly think handwritten notes and letters are important in our busy and technology-obsessed world, and beautiful stationery only adds to the charm of personal correspondence.
Lynne is currently having a contest on her blog and is giving away a year's worth of stationery from Papermash! Do you know how much loveliness that is? Enough to make my heart go all aflutter! Get yourself over to Tea for Joy to enter the giveaway for yourself.
Here are some of my favorite things from her new shop:

Scalloped edge notebook
Free downloadable typewriter cards!
I've already printed some of these cute cards out and can't wait to send them to some special folks.
