I have this and now I want to order more — they are from Korea. Beautiful! I use them each day as my To Do list.

I can never tire of this paper and cute Japanese/Zakka stuff! I should lay out all of my crafting supplies and stationery and show you sometime, I love all of it – my rubber stamps, tapes, journals, books… and sometimes I feel like I’m 12 years old again asking my mother to drag me to the Sanrio shop — but I’m soooo okay with that, I will love paper goods forever + ever + ever!

    :) sounds familiar. I love how, though school is long gone, each September I need to buy some new notebooks, pens, sketchbooks and colored pencils :)

    I can never have enough stationary. Thanks for the share!

  • Reply Heather December 16, 2010 at 1:30 am

    Thanks for this great find Holly!! I love your expression “drool rainbows” just as much as the tape itself! You inspire me to lighten up and enjoy my life and see the sunshine and rainbows in it! (instead of taking everything so seriously)

    I would love to get the TO DO list but I don’t see it on their website. Could you please post for us the TO DO URL for this…

    Oh these are lovely!! Swoon….

  • Reply This Time Now December 16, 2010 at 3:06 am

    I love those journals! They are everywhere here in Korea as Koreans love innovative design and stationery. The ones that you show here are even more inexpensive here in Seoul. I’ll send some to a couple of family members in the States. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Reply Cookie Cutter December 16, 2010 at 3:27 am

    I’m totally with you on the stationery and paper love! I kept asking for them when I was a kid yet I sometimes couldn’t bear to use them. Keeping them nice and safe, taking out to look at them occasionally made me really happy. My parents never got it! Haha.

  • Reply kristine toward December 16, 2010 at 4:02 am

    I love the patterned tapes, beautiful post

  • Reply Vicky December 16, 2010 at 4:08 am

    Love this store. I so wished they shipped to the US. The pad you use for to-do’s is fabulous, I definitely need to find something like that to buy for next year!

  • Reply leslie December 16, 2010 at 4:50 am

    This is my happy place! I love everything!!! I really enjoy how they feature their products too. AMAZING!

    The Japanese zakka indeed has its influence all over the world. French girls! :) Lovely post.

    heeheehee i was/am obsessed with Sanrio. Every week I got to go and do a little browsing! Sometimes I could get the surprise grab bag!! It was super exciting to find out what goodies would be in store. I too will never ever tire of cute tapes, paper, ribbon, and hello kitty….!!!

    Those are some of the prettiest tapes I’ve ever seen. Love patterned tapes, it’s one trend I hope never goes away. This year, all my Christmas presents are being wrapped in brown kraft paper (some plain, some crinkled up) with festive tapes- I have five different ones.

    Oh my! Holly, I am so tempted by the owl and the masking tape. Thanks for sharing these – some great stocking ideas!

  • Reply Rocio Rincon December 16, 2010 at 10:54 am

    I feel happy just looking at those cute Japanese stuff! They are so colorful and pretty. I love those stickers!!!

  • Reply belinda December 16, 2010 at 11:29 am

    ahhh what great taste in store name they have!!!! thanks for posting – i bought some floral-print tapes today. can’t wait to use! x

  • Reply Chuzai Living December 16, 2010 at 11:31 am

    I love Japanese paper goods, too!! When I lived there I don’t think I appreciate them very much. Growing up in Japan, paper goods from the U.S. or Europe was much more exotic, cuter and prestigious. I guess grass is greener. I use my girls as an excuse to buy Sanrio goods after many years! I love it.

  • Reply Laura December 16, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    Ahh I love stationary too holly! I bought one of the owl candle holders from atelier abigail ahern the other day in islington, london. He is lovely! Xx

    What is that last image in your post? I love it!

  • Reply Kate December 16, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    I love all of this! Surprisingly I don’t have any of the decorative tapes etc,… at least not yet. I still have the stickers and paper goods I collected when I was younger, though. I think some of it may even be back “in” (so maybe I can use it in those inspiring ways!), but some of it sadly not so much. For example, Lisa Frank circa 1993 (that would be the neon drool with dolphins).

  • Reply PriscilaPetersDecor December 16, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Lovely colors and patterns

  • Reply Melissa de la Fuente December 16, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    oh my….these are all so delicious. Love it all & I have those kraft pads too, they sit by my computer and I put my to do’s on there every day! :)

  • Reply *Dream Weaver* December 16, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    :) i love your tapes.
    they are so pretty!!!
    I bought a diary from Korea too and am waiting for it to be delivered.
    I can’t wait to start decorating and using it.
    One of the reasons I can’t wait for 2011 to start :)

  • Reply Charlie December 16, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    I love owls! The blue one on their web site is MY must! I must have them in the pair. For real. I am crazy about owls. ceramic ones, not real ones.

    You’re really fueling my obsession with masking tape! Love Fog Linen too….I think I need to head over to Happy Home right now.

  • Reply Arachna December 16, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Lovely stuff!

    But this is the second shop in a week where when I’m intrigued and I click through looking to buy I am completely baffled by artistic shots that leave me in the dark about what a thing actually looks like!

    I like the cover of that daily planner… but am I the only one who can’t find a picture of what it looks like inside? How can anyone be expected to buy it?


  • Reply leah December 16, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    Thanks for sharing. This mirrors my obsession. I have tried to say the stuff I buy is for my kids… but ultimately i don’t want to share!
    So excited to check out this new (to me) shop!

    Thank you x

  • Reply Danielle December 16, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    Happy for sure!!! I need that organizer and quick…life has been getting busier and busier for me! On a side note…I did a post on my mothers hand made holiday cards today and I would really love it, if you made a comment…it would make her day! No need to join or any of that! I just would love for her to get a comment from you…she loves loves loves your blog!! No worries if too busy, just thought I would ask! Have a wonderful day and hope you’re staying warm!

  • Reply Mary December 17, 2010 at 12:11 am

    I love all this stuff!! And I practically lived in my local Sanrio shop when I was younger too. I definitely never grew out of it, though I try to tone it down somewhat when I’m in an office-type working environment. Now I get to buy all that stuff for my niece, who’s almost five and just discovering the wonderful world of Hello Kitty:)

  • Reply Julie the Alkaline Sister December 17, 2010 at 4:27 am

    oh my gosh- those patterned floral tapes and everything are wonderful! I am so tape deprived! Not like some friends I know! and the Ottolenghi cook book is so amazing-luuuv it! Wish we had an Ottolenghi cafe here!

    Hi Natalja !
    The last five photos were not taken by us. We just used them to illustrate the items.
    Have a nice end of week :)
