Greetings from Portland

I have a thing for Portland, Oregon. I think it’s related to my Elliott Smith obsession. Or perhaps it’s because I have such fond memories of the Pacific Northwest from my time living in Vancouver. Anyway, I’ve started collecting postcards and artwork from Oregon-based artists and these little beauties are on my to-buy list. The artist is Agnes Barton-Sabo and her store is Betty Turbo. You can check out the cards, and some of her other sweet illustrations, here.

Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mum and to all the other Mums out there. We just got back from a brunch over at the folks’ place which was a lovely way to start a Sunday.

Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here on the blog before but I’m a big fan of Rifle Paper Co. They are a husband and wife team over in Florida who make the most gorgeous stationery. Thankfully for me, Mother’s Day gave me a great opportunity to buy one of their beautifully illustrated Mother’s Day cards – I’ve had my eye on it for a while and loved it immediately. I just adore the typography and the retro-esque feel. I also purchased some note cards to add to my ever growing stash (thankfully I have a few more pen pals this year so I’ll use them all up for sure).
