Full Stop

My love for the postal service is undying. Especially when old school goodies like a telegram come through it.

Thanks, Alice!

No funny business

Olivia has the best business card I have ever been fortunate enough to receive. All thick paper and two color letterpress to boot!

Over the last few years I obsessively collected this line of vintage Samsonite suitcases (blue tweed with several sparkle) from thrift stores, ebay, and flea markets. I'm using them to store art supplies. This is an ingenious use-- I may have to convert a few.

I'm *kinda* obsessed with hot chocolate. I love this concept from Jamie Oliver-- you just stir this spoon into hot milk, and voila. I'd love to figure out how to make my own version of this.

*p.s. Please act surprised and delighted if I do figure out how to do this and you get one as a gift.
