Just Write No. 3 Carolyn Suzuki

Just Write is a series to share my favorite stationery lines. I knew it wouldn't be too long before Carolyn Suzuki's line showed up here! I was a fan since the first second I saw her at the Unique LA show. My obsession only grew after I started seeing her line around town at all my favorite shops.
 She's got a wide range of cards for all occasions, they are always bright and cheery. 
 These are just a few of my favorites!
It's always a good idea to have a few cards on hand. Sometimes when I know I'm going to have some time to kill I take a stack with me. For example, I had to go get my car serviced so I took a few and went to a coffee shop to write. But of course, writing in public opens you up to strangers trying to get up in your business- "what's that you've got there? a card? people still write cards? well WHO are you writing to?? Do they write back??"
I wish I had a shirt that said "don't talk to me, I am clearly busy" but headphones also do the trick ;)
 Back to Carolyn- they are so good! Literally, even if you don't think you have anyone specific to write to, her cards will inspire you. Don't you just know someone who would love this card?
 Cats, I'm obsessed, you already know.
 Shiny stars are just perfect for a birthday celebration.
And for reasons unknown, I love this banana.
If you aren't familiar with Carolyn's line, do yourself a favor and go check it out now! You won't be disappointed.

Recent Finds - Redraven Studios

I recently came across the work of Amy Hamley. Her handmade porcelain line, Redraven Studios, is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I'm completely enamored with it. These little envelope planters are just darling, aren't they?
Then I saw her Canyon Series, which are hand painted with 14k gold luster. OBSESSED!
 Wouldn't you just love to enjoy your morning cuppa in this?
Or juice?
 I can't get over these functional works of art.
They are all so beautiful! Looking forward to seeing more of this talented artist.

It can be used a variety of ways. $10, at

Postage Stamp Frames

I already think that postage stamps are little works of art so it's only logical they should have frames around them. I just discovered Anticipate Postage Stamp Frames- rubber stamps that frame your postage. What?!? I love!! 
 Aren't these just perfect? I can't pick a favorite.
 Though I keep going back to these styles.
 There are just so many good ones to choose from!
 Can you pick a favorite?
I think these would really step up my mail game!
