Dear blogging friends — Today I'm adding a new friend to my blog roll — Erika of Parvum Opus. Erika has recently started a blog about desk accessories and the decorative arts. Besides being lovely in and of itself (I've borrowed a handsome photograph from her own site), the Parvum Opus blog will lead you to a selection of custom-made desk accessories from her own bindery. That's her work featured in the above photograph. If you get a chance, visit Parvum Opus, here. I salute Erika's craftsmanship and wish her well. .
