Weekend reflections

Another weekend is upon us and this one, being Labor Day weekend, calls for some extra celebrating. Don’t you agree?? Whatever you have planned these next few days, take some time to relax & rejuvenate from all the work that is so easy to get swept up in day-to-day. I personally find it easy to be distracted by the excitement of a 3-day weekend, but do you realize that the purpose of this weekend is to celebrate the contributions that working Americans have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country?

Maybe you love your job… or maybe you’ve been searching high and low for the next step in your career. Regardless of where you’re at, remember that it’s important to LOVE & believe in what you do. NO job is perfect but there is nothing more satisfying than working hard & knowing that even if you have a hard week, the way you spend your days is more than a “job” but rather a vocation.

HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND! We’ll be back on Wednesday with more pretty inspiration!

Geometric + floral letterpress

Monday’s textile inspiration post is a perfect segue into sharing one of our latest letterpress invitation suites. We may sound like a broken record, but we just LOVE mixing patterns (throw pillows, clothing and stationery alike) and these preppy designs are a prime example…

Dana Jo Photography had a hay day styling and photographing the stationery before the wedding! We’re giddy over how these photos turned out!!

Home decor & stationery inspiration

Hey friend! How was your weekend? We sure hope you had a good one, soaking up the dwindling days of summer in some fashion.:)Between cleaning the entire house, date night, 2 barbecues and catching up with a couple of my dearest lady friends, I spent some quality time nesting {& shopping for home goods} over the weekend. For some reason this has been an overwhelming task for me so it feels great to have made progress!!

In the midst of hunting for the perfect piece of art for the living room, trying to figure out how to incorporate the antlers that my hubby acquired and considering freshening up my throw pillow collection, I stumbled across Caitlin Wilson Textiles. Putting it lightly, I am OBSESSED. Yes, I studied textiles in undergrad so that only adds to the intrigue, but these beautifully woven prints are tapping into our love for all things design. Aren’t these swatches just gorgeous? Check out the rest of her current fabric options here.

 You may know that we’re fans of mixing patterns (especially when it comes to stationery), so naturally we’re a fan of how versatile this collection is!!

Are you swooning as much as we are?!

Happy Hour: white peach + rose lemonade

Oh hey friends! It’s friday and you better believe that after a long and fun work week, we’re ready to kick back and relax. What do you have planned?

This week’s happy hour pick is actually an “all ages” bev that we’ve been dying to try- White Peach & Rose Lemonade. We ran across the recipe on Heart of Gold and are certain it would be the perfect drink so serve at a shower- baby or bridal for that matter. Who are we kidding though, there is absolutely NO need to wait for a celebration to mix one of these up… kicking off the weekend is a perfect excuse!

Happy Friday!

Audubon style at it’s finest

Today, we’re over the moon to share with you one of our all time favorite inspiration shoots, which was just featured on Style Me Pretty! We had the pleasure of collaborating with Greenlion Weddings, Glass Event PlanningRussell Morin Fine Catering and the lovely Erin McGinn Photography to name a few of the talents behind this Vintage Audubon wedding styled shoot. 

With a charge to design an invitation suite and accompanying paper goods that exude Vintage Audubon style, we got to work and had a blast doing so!! We think that Kristen Henderson’s hand calligraphy was the perfect touch on that chocolate brown envelope!:)

If you’re pumped about how the invitation suite turned out, you’ll definitely want to check out the rest of the feature & gallery here! But here’s a little peek at the beauty to further entice you…
