and i also now have lilac paper for books. i had to get it for a special order, so now i have it. since that slab of decorative paper i got the super deal on was pretty much lilac based, i'll have some nice retro-style covered journals. to go with the blue, pink, ecru, white, goldenrod, yellow and mint paper i already have from closing office building scavenging of my youth. i've been dragging this office paper around for years and it is so cool to finally have a use for it in the mass quantities that i have it in. (fucking run on sentences) the law of averages told me i would need the one color i didn't have. so that was really not a surprise.
such little things give me joy.
