Did you have a lovely weekend? I hope so! Ours was pretty relaxing, some time in the garden (when the sun finally decided to shine) and some cooking - which is always good : )
I'm looking forward to easing into this last alphabetical week with these two gems below.. shall we get started?
Live in Portland Oregon? check.
Live in a 1952 mid-century modern ranch? check.
Have been honing my skills of letterpress printing for the past year? check.
If you checked all three of the above, then you must be Laura Bachman Carignan from Lulu Dee. For those of you reading today who aren't Laura - doesn't it sound like she has the dream life?! It is no wonder that her work is full of crisp modernist goodness...

Our dip into the tea-towel ocean last week had printed kitchen cloths jumping out at me all over place... this collection from Julie Peach was no exception.
Julie creates a collection of printed goodness that stretches way beyond tea towels and napkins; it includes a range of notebooks, cards, stationery, fabrics and homewares. However, I decided to pick out a few of my fave kitchen towels to share with you today - Can you believe that each one is individually hand illustrated? - wow!
