It’s been a little quiet on here recently, but that’s because I have been working on opening my new Etsy shop. It’s a mix of vintage books turned notebooks, vintage ephemera paper, and sewn accessories as well. Take a look, I hope you like it.
From the Kita no Moyo-cho (literally means “pattern book from the North”) letterpress card series, this mini card set in a match box is really adorable! 20 mini cards with blank back side. Made in Japan.
Could you combine all of the things I love into one!? Letterpress, notecards, Japanese stationery, and itty bitty things? Yes please. I will take one of each.
I adore things made of paper. I came across des plis and while I can’t read it because it’s all in French, it has some pretty pictures of things made from paper.
I really love paper. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of home decor made from paper. I like this idea because it’s really quick and simple and if you get tired of it, you don’t feel too bad tossing it into the recycling.
Here are some of my favorite finds:
These paper mobiles from Upon a Fold are so colorful.
Create a wall sculpture from recycled toilet paper tubes.
Add some pretty flowers from doilies and colored thumb tacks.
Create some tissue paper flowers to add some color to a room.
If you have a bunch of magazines laying around like I do, try this pretty wreath.
I am loving this gorgeous stationery set for Wanderlust. My favorite is the plane paths on the inside of the envelopes.
The custom made logotype expresses the feeling of dreaminess, fantasy and the discovery of the surreal landscape of a new world. The dash lines evoke the impulse to join the lines, as with the impulse to travel. The act of joining the lines is also analogous with the marking of lines from point to point, like a traveler would do on his map to plan/track his route.
The airmail tricolor band is synonymous with traveling and correspondence – the conveyance of the emotions and thoughts kindled during a journey via mail.
Various forms of ephemerals and keepsakes experienced during a journey were carefully studied, considered and deployed onto the collateral set. Bus ticket for rate cards; air ticket for brochure inserted into an Air-ticket Wallet; notebook aptly named ITINERARY as a multi-purposel room-directory/guide book/journal for the guests, etc.”
