Polka dots pack what we call “pretty power” and we’re covered in them! Or at least we carry all kinds of things that are. Period (DOT)!

All that glitters…

Friday, July 18th, 2014

As a lover of all things gold and shiny, and of design from the early 20th century, I am glad  to see Art Deco inspiration still going strong for stationery this year! We recently got some new items for all of those who still enjoy writing things by hand…

I love having boxed cards around the house. Usually a more economical choice than individual greetings cards. It’s nice to have a supply laying around for those unexpected last minute birthday parties, also (as I can tell you from experience) a random unexpected hand written note in the mail is pretty exciting! These cards are black and white with gold foil details and pretty gold envelopes. Pick a bright coloured Le Pen to write your note, seal it up with washi tape, and you’re set

The trend carries over to more personal stationery items as well. These pretty foiled journals are the perfect size to carry with you and maybe for an unexpected moment to journal in the park. Of course, we also have matching pencils… cause why not?

Naturally… it all comes back to the paper. Our Nepalese hand screened papers also come in a variety of art deco inspired prints with metallic pigments. Great for wrapping something special, embellishing invites or as a hanging print.

Stay Gold!

Spring Is Finally Here!

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for the cold winter weather to end here in Toronto.  We can now start to see the beginnings of a beautiful spring and summer.  Looking around the city you can really be inspired by the lush colours starting to pop up everywhere.

We currently have some amazing Batik Mums Nepalese papers in our windows that really let the light shine through.

Looks like we’re finally being rewarded for the long, cold winter that we had to endure.
