smitten kitten *

by Grace Bonney


smitten kitten is a fabulous stationery and accessory boutique run by designer amy kwong in toronto. passed on to me by d*s reader luis- smitten kitten carries a great series of vintage wallpaper memo pads, mini-notbooks, journals and postcards that are a must-have for any pattern loving note-taker. i’m nuts about the kelly green birds, but there’s something for everyone (all around $3-$20 a pop). check out the full collection right here. enjoy! [thanks, luis!]


Suggested For You


  • love the bird journal- it reminds me of a print urban outfitters used in their stores and bags awhile back.

  • har! Amy used to work for Urban (don’t tell her I told you), so it’s probably not a surprise that their aesthetics sometimes meet… Her ashtrays have a particular humor in anglophile parts of Canada, where the british meaning of “fag” still has some resonance. Congrats, amy!
