October Afternoon's 9 to 5 Collection!

Product Photos from OCTOBER AFTERNOON's blog.

OCTOBER AFTERNOON's newest collection has sent my prescription cough syrup addled brain into a tailspin.  It's just past amazing and almost over to live-changing.  Kind of like the time I had my first vodka & tonic in a Dallas hotel room.  You know, that moment something or someone enters your life and you know you were meant to be together?

OA's '9 to 5' is a vintage inspired office daydream-  vintage colors, patterns, even a dark-wood paneled 'boardroom,'  all brought to life in a sexxxy secretary 12X12 patterned paper way.  Scrap up a mini-book about your job, MadMan style!  Relive your Xerox dreams!  All your dreams are possible, now!

When I was a little Kory, my favorite 'game' was PLAYING OFFICE.  I had a cubicle area setup in a corner of my bedroom, where I kept my bright blue manual typewriter, my wire IN/OUT boxes, stacks of paper and random office supplies- and a copy of a dog-eared Office Depot catalog that I would circle objects I thought I needed to 'order.'  Clearly, October Afternoon built this collection for ME.

Seriously, I love every piece of this collection!  Every piece is 'RIGHT.'

Check out these brads:

See the old typewriter?!  I know just where it'll go...

See the entire collection, HERE, at October Afternoon's blog.  Check out the set of STAMPS- with a terrific rotary phone graphic, the journal cards, and their set of coordinating SPRINKERS ink sprays-  great colors, an incredible collection. 

Thank you, October Afternoon!!!
