Paper Artwork – Chelsea Cardinal

I love the hand lettering and watercolor details in these drawings from brooklyn-based illustrator and painter Chelsea Cardinal:

Happy Weekend!

This week has been Operation Apple Recipe week for me – we've got tons of apples from our orchard excursion over the weekend and have been trying to put them to good use.  So far I've made soup and stuffing, but this weekend I'm planning to make individual serving apple pies and possibly an apple crisp if I don't put myself into a sugar coma first.  I do have photos from the apple orchard to share with you next week, and may share photos of my baking adventures depending on how things turn out, but in the meantime…

Here are a few things I've enjoyed this week:

That's it for me this week!  I hope you all have a warm + cozy weekend, and I'll see you all back here on Monday!

Lizzy Janssen Totes

I've been eyeing these hand screen printed tote bags from Lizzy Janssen all week – I have a bunch of tote bags at home, but I'm pretty sure that I need to add this one to my collection:

Pink, Black + White Invitations

I’ve been loving the combination of pink, black and white lately – so when I came across these letterpress invitations from Two Paperdolls via Louella Court and then again via Marie Labbancz, I was instantly smitten with the color palette and typography details:

I also love the playful wording of the invitations – small details like that really allow the couple’s personality shine through and give guests an indication of the wedding to follow. Such fun invitations!  You can read more about these lovely invitations over at Louella Court.

Autumn Gift Tags

So somehow things seem to have skipped over fall completely and gone straight to December already.  How on earth did that happen?!  I'm hoping that we'll see a return to more mild temperatures next week, but in the meantime I'm relying on these letterpress gift tags from Dingbat Press to remind me of all the things I love about fall — changing leaves and gorgeous color all over the place…
