mister postman sampler

{ letter to my love necklace by eclectic eccentricity }

i have been writing and rewriting a letter -- a real, honest-to-god, ink on paper letter. sometimes the best and only way to express yourself is by writing everything down, putting a stamp on it and hoping for the best.

toybreaker (tielab) redux, plus interview

{ poppy bronze and cream hand-silkscreened woven silk scarf }

since toybreaker is the current featured seller interview, now seems a good time to revisit since my first post and mention she's branched out into gorgeous, fair-trade, hand-screened silk scarves (my favorite is, of course, the red one). do check out the interview -- detroit-based (and cranbrook-educated!) bethany shorb does what she loves, makes beautiful things, takes enormous care with the environment and with sustainable sourcing, and does awesome custom work. giant etsy crush. check out her store: there's a discount for large orders/wedding parties.

remember what you love

{ '50s spinner brass heart from ragtrader }

just wanted to say this: i just had the best day ever. all my life should be this good. saw a dozen waterfalls and walked all over and ate my face off and laughed til i cried and sang along with beirut at mcmenamin's crystal ballroom here in portland, and i'm sad it's over. you have to go out on a limb sometimes, friends. go after what you love in this life, and hold it close.

happy memorial day, everyone --

yes, satsumalynn was in my little portland sampler, but i just cannot resist: oh, sweet letterpress. one day you will be mine. she prints stunning custom invitations (see the slideshow at, and her shop's epigraph is perfect for it: " 'simplicity is an exact medium between too little and too much.' -- sir joshua reynolds". lovely.
