Sometimes I feel such a connection with a card that it’s hard to imagine that it hasn’t always existed. That it wasn’t just always there, somewhere, somehow, out in the universe. I occasionally have this feeling about songs and paintings, too, so I think it must be something about my emotional connection with a particular work of art that I just can’t imagine that artwork not existing in the world. Anyway, I have this exact feeling about several cards from Katie of Odd Daughter Paper Co., including her I love you more than tacos card, which just makes me smile every time I see it. I was surprised that I hadn’t already rounded up a few of her cards and prints in a quick pick post, so let’s take care of that right now!

Over the past few weeks I’ve developed a major thing for ceramics. I’ve always had a soft spot for pretty plates and mugs, but as I’ve discovered more independent artists making hand crafted ceramic goods that soft spot has grown into a full on obsession. Their Instagram accounts also tend to be some of my favorites, fueling the OMG I have to have that right now please feelings even further. Today I thought I’d highlight a few favorites!

Three Potato Four released these fantastic GoodLife key tags a few months ago, and I’ve been kind of obsessed ever since – how great is the Penpal Society tag?!?! These key tags would be a fun gift idea or just a creative way to dress up a spare set of keys for house guests!

Flowers are my second love (after stationery, of course), and fresh flowers can make all the difference during dark and dreary winter. I’m always on the hunt for beautiful vessels to hold small arrangements. I can’t get over the stunning vases and ring dishes from The Object Enthusiast – each one is more beautiful than the last!

I love it when creative friends join forces, which is exactly how Angela Liguori’s new Rotolino greetings collection came together! The collection features words calligraphed by artist Susy Pilgrim Waters, then letterpress in charcoal gray ink printed onto long strips of cotton paper by Albertine Press, and finally wrapped around hand dyed wooden spools and secured with red thread by Angela. Such a unique way to send love and wishes to a special person!
The collection currently features two designs: Love (with the words amore, dolcezza, per sempre insieme, ti amo, gioia, abbracci, baci, xoxo) and Holiday Greetings (with the words warm wishes, joy, gratitude, celebrate, best wishes, kindness, peace, season’t greetings, xoxox). Each spool measures 2″ by 1.25″ with strips of paper 7/8″ tall and 17″ long. The spools are packaged in kraft paper gift boxes.
p.s. Angela is celebrating the new collection with a giveaway on her blog! Check out the details right here.
