As many of you know, Nick and I are preparing for our 18 day trip to Malaysia in November. How does that relate to today’s post, you ask? Well, when I was out on my lunch-time walk I happened to pass a boutique store that I hadn’t been in yet, Paper Patisserie (next to WA Frost on Selby). Of course I met the owner since it’s my latest favorite hobby and she delighted me by showing me around the store she’s owned for 26 years. It was then that I stumbled across this purple beauty you see above. Let me tell you, it’s even prettier in person than photographed. It’s shiny and purple and velvety inside and it just screams, “I’m a globe-trotter!”
Up until meeting Nick, I never really understood the value of a passport cover, but he loved his little leather-bound one so much that I started to want one too. And then somehow my passport got made fun of when we were in Grenada due to all the water stains on it (from study abroad) and my feelings towards passport covers began to change.
I believe it was fate. I was supposed to own this passport cover. I feel bad for those of you who may have also wanted it, because as I mentioned in my other post- I GOT THE ONLY ONE! No more shame now from Nick. It kind of feels like a beautiful purse to house my passport in. PS- The beautiful backdrop you see behind it is the hand-made paper I also had to have from this delightful stationary store.
