Technically, summer isn’t over until the end of September. However, I don’t know how many people I have heard say that this weekend is the last “real” weekend of summer. Vacations are over, school is starting back up, and we are trading in our bright neons for rich bold hues. Here is a recap on what we can call the last Fab Five of the season!
Julie returned from her trip to Scotland over the weekend and with her she brought a few stationery surprises. Purchased at Honest Thistle in Pitlochry, Scotland these foil stamped folded cards by Gillian Kyle boast the culture and nostalgia of their origin from across the pond.
You know those dog owners who collect any kind of item that represents their furry friend in the slightest way? I am one of those owners. Luckily for me, and all the proud Doxie owners, Ink + Wit has the “Day in Paris” stamp kit. This set consists of three stamps; a vespa, pennant flags, and of course a Dachshund adorning rain boots that can be used separately or together.
If you ever have the need to be the planets best pen-pal, we’ve got the item that will send you soaring into first place. Your note will read more as a gift as it is pulled out of it’s lettepressed sleeve. Made by Pikku, this special set has matching flat cards that are great for gift giving, or to stash in your personal collection.
As we see the seasonal transition of wedding themes, we like to keep our visuals around the shop up to date and inspiring. Here is a glimpse of our invitation inspiration board. We used lots of bold colors and shiny foil to capture the richness we are noticing as a trend in fall weddings.
As August is coming to a close and September arrives, we are preparing our new window displays. This month, inspiration hit when we stumbled across this colorful DIY fabric ribbon garland on the creative Sugar Lander blog. I can’t wait to get ours up in the windows!
