Postal Press + Pigeon Toe Ceramics + Print and Pattern


Happy Monday!

We are back in the swing of things today, school and preschool have started back which both boys were looking forward to and we have the usual after school lessons kicking in as well. We had such a lovely two weeks off, it was so nice spending the extra time together.

How was your weekend? I hope it was full of goodness!

There is plenty of goodness of the alphabetical kind to share here today, both these lovelies are from Portland Oregon... let's get crackin'!


Postal Press

In late 2008, after a thorough course on letterpress, an idea was born. By early 2009, the folk at Postal Press had turned their idea into reality, combining a love of letterpress, vintage postage stamps, old fashioned letters and pretty packaging.

The Postal Press store is a one stop shop for all your paper and packaging needs, from the tiniest glassine bags to your very own custom designed stationery.... and the sweetest pencils ever!!

Pigeon Toe Ceramics

Pigeon Toe Ceramics grew out of founder, designer and creator Lisa Jones's love for handmade dishware and the Scandinavian aesthetic. Lisa's pieces are all hand thrown on the wheel, then moulded, shaped and decorated by hand...

"Working predominately in porcelain, the fickle but most lovely clay body around, we craft beautiful, modern and affordable heirloom dishware with a story."

These Stacking Thimble Cups (1st below) from Lisa's 'Raw' collection are super sweet!
