Puffin In Bloom Collection by Rifle Paper

We have spent all summer waiting for September for one reason, a set of books.

Anna Bond might not be a name you know (but then again you are reading our blog so I bet I'm wrong), however I am sure you've heard of Rifle Paper Co. If you've spent any time in our store at 29 Congress Street, you have seen Rifle's cards, wrapping paper, art prints, recipe tins, and most recently temporary tattoos.

Now you can see her beautiful illustrations grace the covers of some favorite storybooks.
Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, Heidi, and A Little Princess. While I know at least one of us has picked up a set for her daughter, these are just as lovely for grown-ups as for little ones.

You ARE very busy...time for a new agenda?

You don't have to wait until January to get yourself organized, our mid-year 17-month agendas are rolling in! We've got a great selection of day planners so you can keep track of all your important meetings, appointments, birthdays, hot dates, and fun adventures. 

First up is this super fun duo from will bring out your inner child.
You'll get monthly tabs, a back pocket, monthly and 
weekly layout, ribbon placeholder, and STICKERS!

Next is this classic spiral agenda from Kate Spade, 
pick from this sleek black and white stripe or grab the bold green ikat print.
Each has a front pocket, space for notes, important dates to remember, 
elastic band closure, monthly and weekly views.

Last in this set we are two sizes from Waste Not Paper. 
 This larger desk size is great for someone who has a lot to keep track of. It includes monthly and weekly views, plus it is spiral bound for easy writing.

This smaller size is made with a stitch-binding which allows this planned to lay flat, and is the prefect size to throw right in your everyday bag. 

Discover your green thumb!
