I just emailed Domesticat to join this penpal group. I found her blog through Grumperina and was immediately smitten with her banner. The banner is no more, but suffice to say it contained a picture of one her cats with a scarf (hand-knitted) wrapped around it's neck. My cat would never go for that.
I'm also a stationary slave and I spend a lot of time in the fancy stationary stores of NYC. Now I have a very good excuse to spend money on expensive stationary. Oh dear. Also, tonight I will dig out all my accutrements -- pretty sure I have sealing wax somewhere.
