Journal Set | poppiesandperidot.com

I love a great journal!  A leather-bound book of pages to capture my thoughts and dreams, or perhaps my future novel or screenplay.  The scent of the linen paper gets my imagination flowing.  With the start of the school year upon us, I find it’s a great time to start a new journal, a new chapter.

Kate Spade has the most lovely stationary and whimsical journals like this one.  Small enough to fit in your handbag, it still has plenty of room to capture your ideas.
