Time to start the weekend... hope your plans include plenty of relaxation. 🌿 this custom matchbox design (reads “light with delight”) is part of a duo with a lavender smudge stick from @broadstreetcollective, available only on @greetabl. each box is foil embossed with love by hand in my studio, in a gorgeous matte silver using a custom die made for this set.
These botanical letters remain a favorite project of mine. somehow they strike the right balance of simplicity and ornament for me. eventually i would love to get the whole collection made as foil press dies, but for now i‘m enamored with the white on blue.
Created a whole tiny village of these today... this drawing is part of a cityscapes series inspired by places i have visited or lived in. this illustration was inspired by the brownstones of brooklyn, but it also resembles the rowhouses found in boston, chicago, philadelphia, washington, d.c., baltimore, europe, and more. this matchbox was recently featured in black and gold in @hellobooklover’s march “city of mystery” box.
All individual items in my shop are 10% off this week with the code “springtime” to welcome in spring (though we are still enjoying a lingering winter here in oregon!), including these compass rose matchboxes. has spring sprung yet where you are?
Not quite thyme for spring yet here...i can see snow in the distance dusting the mountains today as i work away in the studio, so peaceful. i’ll be out of town the last week of february (going on one last trip before the baby comes) so be sure to place your orders soon if you need anything before then.
Happy valentine's day! may your heart be filled with love today and always. whoever you are, wherever you are, know that you are loved.
