My first choice this month was a blog friend's shop, but I did not choose it because of that. I chose it because I love zines, and while I have not purchased these zines yet, they are definitely on my list for once I have spending money. The shop is called Paper and Ink and it sells zines written on paper and printed with ink. The artwork and lettering is absolutely gorgeous and I imagine that the writing is equally great.

Lately I have been finding boxes of rocks everywhere I look: antique stores, estate sales, thrift stores, etc., and I can never resist picking out and purchasing a few of my favorites. The next shop I picked is the online shop version of a really great box of rocks. To me it's like a treasure hunt but every piece is a treasure in itself. This shop is Geoevolution and they sell real fossils, gorgeous minerals and preserved life. Their items are great for collectors (these would look great in a cabinet of curiosities (and if you actually have a cabinet of curiosities you should know that I'm super jealous of you!)). They are also great for classrooms and, in my opinion, for unique jewelry supplies and great product photo props.
