Yes, I know I don’t go to school any more. And it does confuse people when I refer to a weekday evening as a school night. But old habits die hard. And I liked school too.
With even the little bit of telly that I watch, I’m already fed up of the ‘Back to School’ ads offering Teflon coated pleated skirts for £3, and the crow-barring in of the theme to ads about washing up liquid and people carriers. But there are certainly cool elements to the Back to School trend….I mean HAVE YOU SEEN all the new stationery around?!?!
And with that in mind, and as a self-confessed stationery obsessive, I recently created a little Etsy Treasury, featuring all those things I used to look forward to buying before the start of the new school year. In fact, I think I have a pretty good excuse to get excited about it anyway, as I’ll be getting my very own studio in a few weeks and I need to kit it out with lots of cool stuff. Obviously.
Here are some of my favourites from my treasury…..(you can click on each photo to take you to the listing on Etsy)….
