How I long to write love letters...
And long to-do lists on your pages...
I could doodle for days with you, my dear...
In fact, you'd be the perfect little Easter goody for my mum, and my niece, and my neighbor.
Looks like I'm going to have to bundle you up and nestle you away in a bright and brilliant fabric bucket full of chocolate eggs and coconut nests...
Because April 8th is right around the corner... and who could have dreamt up a more lovely surprise from that big, fuzzy bunny? Just add a little note to say, "I love you"....
And we're totally in business.
Happy Weekend pals!
P.S. We have LOTS of new goodies that will be perfect stuffers and fill-ins for your Easter baskets and bundles, so come visit soon!!

You're probably laughing out loud right now, still, over that hamster birthday card. You just can't beat it!!
:) Happy Saturday Pals,

just a little word and wish for you all today as you head out to chase those leprechauns...
may there always be thank-yous for your hands to write,
may your Sea Bag clutch always hold a coin or two,
may the sun shine warm on your wedding day,
may a hug and smile be certain to follow each gift you give,
may the hand of a calligrapher always be near you,
and may visiting Gus & Ruby Letterpress fill your heart with gladness to cheer you
now get out there and kiss that Blarney Stone!
xo Lizzy, Sam, Whit, Gus & Ruby

Boy do I have some great news for you today!
To share a bit of a back-story here: the truth is that we've had One Canoe Two on our radar for a while now, but they really fleshed out their line this past winter and I was finally able to pull my thoughts together and get an order together. The lovely ladies behind Canoe put down roots in Missouri in a the 3rd floor loft of a big old barn and have been letterpress printing their hearts out since! Sounds like a big-old success story to me :)
Their beautiful stationery and gifty goods arrived today and totally BRIGHTENED my day! Big thanks to Beth, Carrie & Karen - we love you and love what you do!
A few letterpress prints for ya :)
A more rustic-style recipe box for all of you out there who need to get your Mama's pot pie and Grandpappy's beef stew ingredients corralled...
How about some perfectly prim mixed letterpress printed thank-yous - all those greetings are hand-written by the lovely ladies and then printed on their C&P...
Their "Things That Are Round" letterpress printed coasters make me swoon! Sorta gets me excited for some sweaty glasses of lemonade this summer, don't you agree ;)
And yes, that's a sweet little wooden box with address cards for you to keep on your pretty little desk at home. Genius, right?! One of the lady's pops makes the boxes by hand for them - gotta love that too!!
Simple, bright and fun, don't 'cha think?!
Happy Thursday pals, it's almost Friday (which means that I'll be looking forward to seeing your handsome faces poking around town soon because the weekend is right around the corner!) and I'll be back tomorrow with another little post on some new greeting cards from Fine Day Press, and a little snippet about the new Sea Bags we just got in!
love ya to bits and pieces,
