Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. -William Morris
Not that I always live up to that...But it's a wonderful sentiment. Merely functional items are depressing.
This is my stationery basket. I took all my cards and stationery out of their packages, tied them with pretty ribbon, and put them together in the basket. (Actually the front one was already be-ribboned in the package, so much the better, right?) Way nicer than a box full of ugly packaging. It's a lot more fun to write notes when my stationery looks so pretty! I can't take full credit, I think I originally got the idea from Mrs. Wilt. But it works for me!
