Lately I’ve been digitally hoarding all the vintage Yves Saint Laurent Love Cards I can find. And finally, the time has come to share with you!
From my research, I’ve learned that these cards weren’t Valentine’s but rather cartes de voeux—cards sent to welcome the New Year. The designer created and sent these for 30 years, from 1970 to 2000. Below are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
I’ve noticed a trend lately in fonts that are hand-crafted to look like hand-lettering, and I think that’s great for those of us who want the custom lettered look and feel but don’t always have the time to do it ourselves. And that brings me to Raindrop, a trio of fonts that draw inspiration from editorial illustration.
Today I’m sharing the work of photographer and designer Mayan Toledano. I discovered her work through an article in Fubiz, which dreamily described her work as, “Tinted with pink and sweetened lights, her shots are both an ode to candor and sensuality and invite us to discover a universe where femininity rhymes with spontaneity.” Below are a few of my favorites from her Tumblr. Enjoy!
Today I’m featuring the work of Lisa Congdon on my On Etsy series. I’ve been a long-time admirer of her work, her story, and her general attitude and approach to work and life, which has been hugely inspiring to me. (You should check out her blog, Today Is Going To Be Awesome here). Her work exudes a celebratory exuberance and positivity that just make me smile, and I hope it has the same effect on you!
