Scalloped Happiness

I’ve been meaning to share with you these snapshots of my new personal stationery compliments of Sugar Paper in Los Angeles! After featuring their lovely designs in Matchbook I just knew I had to have some for my own and contacted the darling Chelsea for assistance. I wrestled with the colors and design (so many choices!), but am over the moon with the results! I love that the navy type is simple and classic, while the scalloped edge adds a dash of feminine flair. The envelopes are white with navy lining, a crisp navy border on the flap, and my address in navy letterpress. Having my address despite the fact we rent feels fabulously indulgent and so grown up! ;) Thank you a million times over to the sweet girls of Sugar Paper — I’ll be ordering these for many years to come!

Made Me Smile

This has been an absolutely crazy week so I thought I’d just post a roundup of things I stumbled upon that made me smile. 1) This awesome book cover 2) This print of Paris 3) These dainty earrings 4) This vintage linen lavender bag 5) This resin bangle 6) This ceramic polka dot cup 7) This original press photo of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor which I recently snatched up on eBay. Pugs!

Bon weekend loves and thank you SO much for your tips on Atlanta. I can’t wait!

Atlanta Tips?

I’m so pleased to share that I’m headed to Atlanta next month to speak on a panel about new media and design hosted by Traditional Home. I am a huge fan of their publisher, Beth Brenner (she’s a Neo-Trad like us and just so kind and forward thinking when it comes to business!), and I am absolutely tickled to have been asked. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Atlanta over the years and am terribly excited about my first visit! I know you are a savvy bunch of ladies so I thought I’d ask — any tips or suggestions for my trip? I’m already planning to visit Pieces and am eager to explore the areas of Virigina Highlands and Buckhead. I’ve always joked about moving to Atlanta (I was looking up real estate there last night…I’m a bit silly like that…) so I really want to get a feel for the city!

Oh and the panel is going to be late afternoon on Friday July 15th at the gigantic gift show hosted by AmericasMart. I will be sure to post details closer to the date — I so hope you can make it! I would LOVE to meet some Neo-Trads/Matchbook Girls :) xoxo Katie
