Pretty Paper in the Office: Wall Clocks

Whether at the office or in the grand scheme of things, time flies. (Um, how is it fall already?) When I’m in the thick of it, I find myself glancing up at the clock, even if I happen to be in a room that doesn’t have one! Depending on your choice of clock, they can even pull double-duty as functional pieces of art or sculpture. No matter the style in which they do it, a wall clock will always make sure you’re right on time. - Julie

Quick Pick: Snow & Graham Keepsake Boxes

I’m a wee bit of a pack rat – especially when it comes to sentimental objects like photos, travel mementos, or (ahem) pretty greeting cards. I’m always on the lookout for beautiful keepsake boxes to store these precious memories, and I was beyond thrilled when Snow & Graham released this new collection of boxes featuring several of their signature patterns!

Pretty Paper in the Office: File Storage

I’ve had a huge, standard filing cabinet for years. I hate the thing, but if you have papers or important documents that you need organized — something that’s always right where it should be when you need it — a filing cabinet gets the job done. Thankfully, things have changed in the past decade since I got mine. Replacing it will be difficult simply because it’s so hard to choose! Whether you’re looking for a certain style, one that stands out, or one that’s disguised as a piece of furniture, this round up shows you just a small selection of what’s out there! - Julie

Calligraphy Inspiration: Meghan Kay Sadler

This month’s dose of calligraphy inspiration is an absolute triple threat; she’s a Los Angeles based photographer who also offers services in calligraphy and design. Meghan Kay Sadler‘s portfolio is filled with visual goodness. From stunning portraits to beautifully executed hand lettering, she’s the total package. Being such a visual creature, you can’t really be surprised at the level of her work. – Julie

Light as a feather, Meghan’s calligraphy seems to be floating on air, or the paper in this case. Very delicate but it certainly makes an impact!
