Dreamiest invitations ever

You need a little dose of pretty for your Friday morning, don’t you? I thought so. How about these?

For a while, I was convinced that there is nothing new under the sun when it comes to wedding invitations. Then I saw these. They’re Joy Laforme's creation for Love vs. Design, and they are just so dreamy. Wouldn’t they be perfect for an outdoor soirée?

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Handmade garlands

There are so many pretty handmade garlands on Etsy, and I just can’t get enough of them. They’re the perfect combination of sweetness and whimsy, so I thought I’d round up a few of my favorites to share during this busy week. You know, in case you’re decorating for a party or something. Or a wedding, perhaps.

Washi tape: Yes or No?

These whimsical rolls of paper tape are so pretty and tempting. Every time I see them, I want to start collecting them in every possible print and color. Unfortunately, I don’t have the slightest idea what I’d actually use them for. Wrapping gifts? Taping photos to walls?  

What do you think of washi tape? Do you have any favorite projects/uses for it?

Here are some pretty examples.

Lotta Jansdotter washi tape, set of 3.

The stripes and polka-dot varieties, like this one from Pretty Tape on Etsy, are my favorites. 

This polka dot set is from Paper Source.

Field Guide: Naturalist Lifestyle

1. My last semester starts in a week, and I am in search of the perfect bag.  This natural one with cheery handles would be just perfect, don’t you think?

2. At last, the illustrated produce calendar I’ve been searching for.  It even includes suggestions for preparing the featured fruits/vegetables.

Seasonal Produce Desk Calendar by Lily Jane Stationary.

3. Well, now that you’ve picked up that fabulous rustic farmer’s market loaf, you might as well give it a nice home on this whimsical bread board, right?

2012 Fruit Calendar
by Rifle Paper Co.
This calendar is (almost) exactly what I’ve been searching for for 2012.  I love the sweet and simple illustrations and the whimsical calligraphy.
I was kind of hoping it was a produce calendar, but it actually just features one pretty fruit for each month.  
If you stumble upon any pretty and useful (or just useful) produce calendars, please send the links my way!
P.S. Do you use a paper calendar?  Do you have any favorites?  I love Google Calendar for to-dos, but I also like marking the passage of time with paper.
