Hello all you lucky folks out there! This is the 80th edition of our Lucky Friday Giveaway. Each Friday we feature one of our letterpress greeting cards. We’ll choose THREE LUCKY WINNERS to get a free card. Post a comment by 12 p.m. PST the following Thursday, and we’ll announce the winners on the following Friday!
The winners from last week are (drum roll, please): Frances, Jana and Chris! We’ll contact you next week to arrange sending your Sporty Birthday card.
Artist: Julia Rothman
Inspiration: We took a load off, set a spell, and we fancied we’d honor the humble foundations of our inspirations.
Who to send it to: Anyone named Anne, Louis, Chip, Dale, Chaise or…. Cherry. (?!) Or any antiques aficionado.
Ideas we scrapped in favor of this one: The “Go for Baroque” pun fell flat on all but a few and the “Rockin’ the Rococo” rocking chair card was… actually, we might re-consider.
Favorite detail: Just can’t decide which chair we’d most like to have and never sit in.
Why letterpress? Antique chairs, antique presses— wethinks we see a pattern emerging!
Don’t forget to post your comment and tune in next week, same time, different stationery, to see if you’ve won!
Although it was one of the warmest Alameda Flea Market’s to date, the hunt for treasures was still just as fun. There were adorable vintage clothing and furniture, as well as housewares. One of our favorite finds were the presidential pencil sharpeners – who wouldn’t want to sharpen a pencil with Lincoln’s head!
Eunice and I were jonesing for the Alameda Flea Market last weekend, but, sadly, it got rained out so we headed over to Ohmega Salvage in Berkeley to get our fix of vintage home decor. Eunice found some lovely pendant lamps for her apartment, and I found a fabulous 4 ft by 6 ft vintage mirror. We love all of the light fixtures, tiles, and hardware at Ohmega. This is what Restoration Hardware was meant to be!
