Impressive Letterpress

logo.png

One of my all time favorites! Egg Press is a greeting card company, design studio and letterpress print shop based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 1999, they are considered one of the pioneers in the resurgence of letterpress printing. They’re often noted for a sophisticated color palette, hand drawn illustrations, all-over textile inspired patterns, and sense of humor. They design and produce all of their greeting cards and small-batch textiles in-house. (All cards are $5.50/each or $17.50/box 6 – As always, click to shop!)

Put Yer Feet Up!

I’m on a mission to find a new coffee table for my living room. I want something cool looking, but not weird; practical, but not boring – not too big, not too small. It’s a tough decision, as there are sooooo many good options out there! Here’s a sampling of contenders… (As always, click to shop)

Makes Scents

 

Brooklyn Candle Studio logo

Love these deliciously scented candles from Brooklyn Candle Studio, where their small batch, hand-poured candles are a nod to 19th century apothecaries.

Brooklyn Candle Studio was founded as an homage to the meditative approach of the small batch process. Production is kept small and simple — candles are poured by the team in batches of 9 or 10. Each candle, from wicking to wax melting to pouring and wick-cutting, is created with the utmost care and precision. Known for their fresh, calming botanical fragrances and gorgeous packaging, these candles are simple and modern with a hint of vintage charm. (As always, click to shop!)

French Pottery

shapeimage_1

I was in London having lunch at La Fromagerie, when I became distracted from my delicious beet salad by rows and rows of shelves filled with the most remarkable pottery. Simple, but perfect. Turns out, it was an assortment of Les Guimards Stoneware that the owner had collected. Les Guimards is a family-owned workshop founded in 1976 in Burgundy, France that builds on the pottery tradition of the region with understated pieces for an elegant and cozy table. I fantasized about tossing out every plate and bowl in my kitchen and replacing them with these lovely treasures, but settled on three pieces to call my own.

Pretty Planters

I’m getting in the mood for spring; and for getting outside and playing in the dirt. Here in Minneapolis, it’s not quite time for gardening in earnest, so I’m focused on a bit of indoor gardening. First order of business? Acquiring a really cool plant stand…
