Summer Style Stationery

Among my summer to-dos: order more stationery. That’s actually a good sign to me, as it means I’ve written a lot of notes. And, while I love to use my monogrammed notecards, I also like to have a variety of stationery, just to keep things interesting for me and whoever is on the receiving end.

This new summer collaboration goes to the top of my list. The Maryn (former Domino editor, Michelle Adams) x Caitlin McGauley (NYC based illustrator and artist) for Dempsey & Carroll. The blue and white striped boatneck makes me think of Nantucket and would make an especially cute gift if you are lucky enough to snag a summer invitation with friends. Or the perfect note to accompany your hostess gift.Screen Shot 2017-07-30 at 9.16.50 PM

Wrap It Up

il_570xN.1151928041_1pcjI’m always on the look out for unique, pretty gift wrap….as it’s always good to have some on hand. The packaging is such an important part of any gift. It telegraphs the thoughtfulness of the present before it’s even opened. And, it can elevate the simplest of gifts.

I stumbled upon these adorable prints by A Thing Created….you can guess which is my favorite. But, I think they are all worth adding to my gift wrap station!il_570xN.908473079_kn9r il_570xN.908691928_acpjil_570xN.1217651448_gn9w il_570xN.1209266313_ipc6il_570xN.1135929394_glb3Now, I just have to find the perfect gifts and wrap them up!

Happy 4th of July Weekend

DSC_0264I’m guessing most of you are taking a long weekend, decorating with flags, watching fireworks, lighting a sparkler, dressing in red, white and blue….and savoring the time with friends and family. So, I will be back next week with my Italy review. DSC_0278 DSC_0275DSC_0276 DSC_0272 IMG_2724 Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 5.06.03 PM
