I mentioned earlier this year that we are planning a trip to San Francisco
for Honey’s cousin’s wedding later this year. (Ya’ll provided the most exciting tips and must-do’s, by the way!) Well, we are still hoping to make that happen but WOW flights are super pricey for the four of us ($2500!!!) and we are trying to sock away every dime for a big west coast trip next year in celebration of John’s 10th birthday and my 40th (with four more cross country flights). Anyhoo, the save the date arrived for the big affair and I LOVED it and it makes me want to be able to go more than ever!!! It had a lovely envelope with matching liner, the gold foil accents were perfection, and the paper stock was SUPER nice. Come to find out, it’s from Minted’s new wedding collection
. I have loved stationery, invitations and the likes for my whole life, so one thing led to another and before I knew it I had spent quite some time exploring loads of lovely papers. I really need more parties in my life…
While exploring, Minted’s Art Marketplace knocked my socks off! It’s basically a collection of fine art prints made by independent artists. You can find anything here! Two faves stood out for me….
Betty Hatchett – I adored her two “Family Crest” prints – one with flamingos and one with great blue herons. I’ve been trying to find something for over the potty in my powder room and the herons just might be the winner.
Emily Jeffords – Her fresh and modern landscapes blew me away. After going back and forth between four of her works, I think I finally decided to order this first one for a frame in the family office! The cotton candy skies had me at hello. I also love the moodiness of the second one.
I’ll be sure to post pics when I finalize my decisions!! In the mean time, I’ll be dreaming up an excuse to order party invitations…
