Something to be said for Simplicity...


This week has been so outrageous... and if I make it through the rest of the day without anymore calamity-jane-type accidents I will be THRILLED! TGIF doesn't even begin to describe how relieved I am that the weekend is just around the corner.

But before we get there... I wanted to share some Dee&Lala LOVELINESS! Based out of South Pasadena, California, this company does letterpress right - with simplicity and just a touch of whimsy. They use 100% cotton stock for all of their printing (yes, that means tree-free!) and have a solar powered studio. Their greeting cards and super-sweet wall clocks are all characterized by crisp bits of color impressed upon bright white stock. Here's a little taste to inspire you this Friday!

These cool letterpress printed clocks are a new addition to the shop! I think that they'd be a great little addition to a bookshelf or desktop too, if you propped them on a stand. Maybe get one of each and hang them in unison... each with a different time zone represented? LOVE these suckers!

And those of you who scour our card wall regularly will recall seeing some of these fun greeting cards. They are my favorites - especially the "Lettuce Celebrate!"

Dee & Lala's work is a great reminder how far simplicity can go!

Have a lovely day friends - enjoy the sunshine, although I know it is a bit brisk out - and hope to see you all soon!

Kiss Kiss and a REAL BIG HUG

  1. I've seen Dee & Lala's work at a letterpress printing fair. It is exquisite! Deceptively simple looking, but extraordinary complex and gorgeous.
