When I was on one of my artist dates with myself I scored two things that made me really happy in the thrift shop. You know the kind of things that makes you smile as you unpack them when you come home. The first one was the Swedish translation of Tristine Rainer’s book The New Diary (Den nya dagboken) which I am reading right now. It is not really new, the Swedish version was published in 1984, but it is still accurate and interesting. Well, I love it! I love reading about journaling because I’ve done it for so long myself.
The second find this small notebook with cool designed pages:
I was really surprised to happen upon this one. Paper goods of any kind except used books are rare in Swedish thrift shops and flea markets. This one is a newly produced thing, but still blank and as-new. I guess the price is part of the reason I am so thrilled with this find. In a paper shop it would probably be around 150 sek, and now it was just 10 ($1.60)!
I had to snap photos of some of the spreads just to share them with you. I am inspired by all of these beautiful pages that some day I might write little poems on…
Life is a journey and don’t you forget it!
