Mr. Boddington's Classics

Remember when I blogged about wanting these Mr. Boddington’s classics? Well, I got them for my birthday (thanks Mom and Dad!), and they’re as pretty as I thought. They just say “happy” and “spring” to me. Mr. Boddington’s also happens to be based in New York City, which makes me love the stationer even more. I only got the books that I thought I would actually read, so I skipped Alice in Wonderland and Little Women (confession: I tried to read Little Women once and I didn’t like it. Shameful, I know). 
If I owned a little shop (dream job), I’d definitely stock these lovely books. How fun would that be, to just have a tiny little shop stuffed full of pretty things like these? Then I could spend all day just ordering great items and rearranging the shelves. That would bring me hours of entertainment – as I think you can tell, by the number of times I rearranged these. #easilyentertained

  9. SO cute, Jackie! I love those! I recently found them at Anthropologie and REALLY had to restrain myself. Hehe. Loved all of them, but kind of struggled through Wuthering Heights. πŸ˜‰

    • Aw thanks Kelly! Good self-control! I tried to resist but eventually I was like, I need these πŸ™‚ I read Wuthering Heights a really long time ago so I'm interested to try it again…my sister said the same thing, she kind of struggled through it…we'll see!
