Let’s Get Together!

Love this series of Get Together cards from Kathryn Whyte’s Etsy Shop. These would get used right up in my household!



In Love with Chalk

I’m head over heels for these chalk illustrations by Dana Tanamachi.  The fact that they’re done freehand without the use of stencils or projectors just blows my mind!

Well Branded: Cavalier Essentials

I have an affinity to men’s accessories. I think it’s the classic materials of leather, metal and glass that create such a glamorous scene. Designer Taylor Pemberton created this line of gentlemen’s accessories and fine goods for a school project.

Naturally, Cavalier Essentials has received quite a bit of attention; just look at those details! The subtle black-on-black notebook and the etched metal scream rustic sophistication. Unfortunately these products aren’t available for purchase just yet but Taylor says if the demand is big enough he’d consider launching his manly kits. Check out this interview with Taylor on The Madbury Club about the project.

Hands down one of the best students projects I’ve ever seen. I’ll be the first in line to purchase some of these beauties for my husband when they do become available but until then, we can admire the beautiful styling and impeccable pieces from his Cavalier brand!



I spotted this beautiful first birthday invitation and certificate on Pinterest yesterday in Inspired Bride’s collection. This suite was created by the husband and wife team of Duet letterpress for their adorable daughter, Emily. What a lucky girl!

The invitation is letterpressed on the smaller pink card and details from the 1st year are included in the certificate. Both were bundled up with baker’s twine along with a picture of the birthday girl in a small glassine envelope.

I think the certificate is such a sweet way of celebrating all those simple moments and big milestones with your friends and family. See more pictures and find out the details about the printing here.

Undoubtedly, many of you have already seen these beautiful wedding invitations on Snippet & Ink and Oh So Beatiful Paper but in case you hadn’t I thought I share. Kathryn of Snippet & Ink was married this last December in San Francisco and her wedding was absolutely stunning! Every detail was executed brilliantly all while having that casual laid back sophistication – much like Kathryn herself.

I literally gasped when I saw her entire wedding suite! The subtle grey type on white paper with the bold pops of red are breathtaking! My favorite detail is the hand-edged red on the invitation and reception card along with the red hand-boardered envelopes. Oh and the bride and groom – AH-DORBS! Be sure to check out the rest of this lovely suite here and see more details of Kathryn and Ryan’s enchanting wedding here, here and here!

I’m signing off early this week friends but I’ll see you all back here Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!
