I stopped by the Paper Source on M Street, NW in Georgetown yesterday. I was looking for a big "N" for a project. I checked their website and found that they have paper maiche letters, uppercase and lowercase, that they refer to as "craft letters." Fortunately, they had a big "N" in stock.
Of course, you cannot just walk into the Paper Source, find your big "N", pay for it and leave. At least I cannot. On the table where I found the big "N" were all sorts of other paper maiche items. I ventured a little further and found some cocktail napkins. A little further and some Christmas tree ornaments for my Saks Fifth Avenue tree.
So, by the time I left I had a few things more than just a big "N", which is how it should be. You never know when a creative idea will pop into your head. These paper maiche trees will look wonderful all glittered up. The ornaments are not clear in this picture, but will be clear once I get the Saks tree decorated. They are tiny versions of the old glass bulbs that my mother had for our tree when I was but just a little interior decorator in the making. The cocktail napkins say, "She decided to try Naughty this year." Now to get busy and get all these things ready for the season. I might have to throw an open house this year after I get all the decorations out. Fun!!
