Bailey Doesn’t Bark

I'm a huge, huge fan of the work from Bailey Doesn't Bark — the delicate illustrations and shimmery gold dots on the beautiful ceramic pieces just make me weak in the knees: 




As if that wasn't enough, Bailey Doesn't Bark also has a holiday collection containing these amazingly beautiful holiday cards featuring black ink and gold foil stamp dots:



Sigh.  So simple and so, so lovely… you can find them right here.

2010 Calendar Round-Up, Part 3

It’s finally here!  The final mega-installment of my 2010 calendar round-up has arrived, although I’ll continue to post some calendars individually as they are released over the next few weeks.  This installment ended up being pretty heavy on illustration, and I made sure to include some calendars with writing space in response to some of the feedback on earlier posts.  Enjoy!

So first up, an eco-friendly screen printed tear-away calendar from one of my favorite design duos — Two Trick Pony:

And for those of you looking for a calendar that allows you to write notes or mark birthdays, try this botanical calendar from Amy Marcella:

This year’s calendar from Mibo also has a little space for notes next to each day of the month, as well as a 12-month at-a-glance calendar, both available as printable downloads:



Beautiful illustrations in this limited edition wall calendar from Red Prairie Press:

This letterpress calendar from Pikku was one of my favorite items from the NSS in May for its clean lines and modern, minimalist design — and it’s beautifully mounted on a screen printed wood plank:



Another beautifully vibrant gocco and screen printed calendar from Modern Printed Matter — sadly this is going to be the last year that Anna will gocco print her calendar, so get your 2010 version here:

Floral & Fruit Prints by Claire Nereim

I came across these beautiful prints by Claire Nereim last night while looking around for calendars to feature in part 3 of my calendar round-up (coming up this afternoon!!).  Each print features illustrations inspired by months and seasons of the year, hand screened onto recycled heavyweight paper:



Pure loveliness for any time of year — you can find both prints in Claire's shop right here.

A Wedding at the Zoo

A good friend of mine is getting married at a zoo in Indiana next year, so these wedding invitations from Mr. Boddington’s Studio totally made me smile:




I also love the matching escort cards!  I really like the way the height of each card varies depending on the animal used in the design, imbuing a bit of whimsy into the display.  Check out a bit more, plus the bride’s gorgeous dress, right here.

I always love the holiday stationery from Satsuma Press — these letterpress cards printed in silver ink would be perfect as either holiday or New Year cards:
