Best of Etsy: Ornament Letterpress

Looking to expand your stationery collection…? Lately, I’ve been admiring the designs of Ornament Letterpress. From chic coral branch gift wrap to preppy hydrangea notecards, this Ohio-based press, owned by Miranda Hunt Borden, does it all. The cards are printed on a vintage Vandercook Proof press circa 1941 (amazing!) and they paper is 100% recycled cotton. The decorative-obsessed will appreciate that many of the card designs are inspired by textiles—these Turkish flower cards are at the top of my wish list! Explore all of Ornament Letterpress’ lovely creations here.

Artist Spotlight: Woodblock Prints by Deb DeCicco

I’m hoping to add more original art to my collection and have found woodblock and linocut prints are an affordable way to do so. These striking botanical woodblock prints by artist Deb DeCicco are high on my list wist. Deb has been a visual artist for over 35 years and creates her woodblock prints in the traditional method of moku hanga developed in Japan during the 18th century. As described by Deb, “Each individual print is made entirely by hand without the use of a press. Each color is printed from a separate hand carved block using acid free cream colored paper, paint, brushes and a hand held baren.” Explore more of her lovely work below, and find her Etsy shop here.

Kate Schelter for Sleepy Jones

Remember the darling New Yorker behind this apartment…? Well, artist Kate Schelter is making hearts swoon again, this time collaborating with Andy Spade’s beloved pajama brand, Sleepy Jones. I’m definitely adding a set of the sweet pj’s to my Valentine’s Day wish list. Kate also has a book coming out this May titled Classic Style (she’s obviously a Neo-Trad…) and Andy penned the forward. While the cover hasn’t yet been revealed, the description sounds brilliant (“a mix of stunning watercolor illustrations, stories, memories, quotes, and advice from a collection of friends and mentors in the fashion world”). Pre-order Kate’s book here and shop her Sleepy Jones designs here.

For All Womankind

My heart was so full yesterday seeing all the amazing women (and men! and children!) marching around the world (these photos gave me goosebumps). In solidarity, I thought I’d share these brilliant posters by For All Womankind. As their website proudly states, “all the proceeds go to the Center for Reproductive Rights and Emily’s List, two not-for-profit organizations working to advance reproductive freedoms both in the US and globally, and to elect progressive pro-choice women to office.” I’m thinking I need this one.
