thanks!!

wow.  first of all, how amazing were my lovely guest bloggers last week?  a million thanks to Kate, Roberta and Julie.  you ladies totally rocked it.  I definitely took advantage of that week off and really got some work done!

speaking of work…  Postal Press.  another wow.  I am so pleased at the response from all of you!  it’s been so hard keeping the little shop a secret for so long and now that it’s live, I couldn’t be more happy.  letterpress is one of those things that… totally soothes me.  I’m at peace when I’m at the press and just love every little thing about it.  it’s always been an obsession of mine, fine letterpress stationery, but now that it’s something I’m doing myself, I’ve learned to really appreciate it even more.

right now we’re sold out of a few things, including those hot sellers, the floral scratch pads and pocket note pads!  I’m hoping to have time this week to put together a few to add to the shop and I’ll let you know when they are there.  in the works are more little journals and note pads as well as the long awaited 2010 calendar.  I’ve been putting a lot of thought into it for a month or so now and started work on it over the weekend.  I won’t spoil the surprise, but if you liked the 2009 calendar, you will totally love 2010.  and bonus, it’s letterpressed!  I’m way excited about it.

ok friends, enough babble!  hope your long weekend was fun and relaxing.

Etsy Vintage For Fall

Well, this is my last guest post – thank you so much for having me, Alyson! I thought I’d wrap the week up with a little collection of some vintage I’ve been loving on Etsy, all with Fall in mind. Which, by the way, I am SO excited for as it’s my favorite season.

Have a great weekend everyone and come visit me over at For Me, For You!

For The Love Of Socks!

Seriously, could JCrew’s sock/stocking/hosiery concept for Fall get any more amazing? Neon pink bobby socks and brogues, I mean c’mon! Total styling genius (as usual). I am definitely getting my hands of a few pairs!

Hot Pockets

Green Pockets

I love the concept behind these “Green Pockets” designed by Maruja Fuentes. They are a mix of ceramic tiles and planters that mount right onto the wall and give the illusion of the plants growing right out of the wall. If I wasn’t the worlds worst person at keeping plant life alive, I would be after these in a big way. Kind of perfect for a kitchen herb garden, no?
