More lovely valentines… Satsuma Press

Satsuma Press is one of my favorite letterpress studios (Lynn's calendar was one of my favorites for 2009 – there are still a couple left here!}, so it's no surprise that her Valentine's Day cards are also some of my favorites:

The Valentine's Day set includes two panoramic A6 cards with envelopes and a 5×7 print, and can be purchased as a full set or separately.  Both the cards and print feature delicate feathers first drawn and then letterpress printed by Lynn
in peacock blue ink with the words 'birds of a feather … flock
together.'  All available right here.

Getting Married? Congratulations!

I'm always on the hunt for a great "congratulations" cards to give to friends, whether they're getting married or just got a new job.  These cards from Pearl & Marmalade and Smock Paper are a couple of my recent favorites:

A little Friday morning inspiration to start off the day:

I still have kitchens on the brain – mostly since my current kitchen is my least favorite room in our apartment.  I'm loving the idea of a kitchen table with drawers for placemats and silverware – a great idea, particularly for my small, storage-challenged apartment.  This table seems to be a repurposed desk, which depending on the size could still function as a dining table.

I've been slowly collecting and archiving my favorite images via tumblr – if you're interested in seeing more, you can visit my tumblr site here.

Fiesta Wedding Invitations

I’m loving the stationery in this sneek peak of a Frida Khalo-inspired table trends design that Courtney is putting together for Once Wed:

Cinco-de-mayo-fiesta-wedding-invitations

I think the bold floral graphics and fun fonts in the second design are my favorite – perfect for an informal, outdoor spring-time wedding.  Courtney’s design should be up on Once Wed in a week or so, and I can’t wait to see the entire feature!
