Wee Shamrocks Pack a Punch!

The shamrock is a tiny little plant that is known everywhere St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated. Find one with 4 leaves and the impact is even greater as it is the epitome of good luck. I felt very lucky to find a small pair of letterpress type, vintage shamrocks –  an outline version and a filled in version. I felt the filled in version gave a better sense of the shamrock with that wonderful green.

If you have been wanting to get in touch with someone but didn’t feel you had a reason to, why not break the ice with this adorable shamrock? When people feel the paper and the impression in the paper, they know it is something special. Just like when we were kids and we would look and look and look through clover growing wild to see if we could be so lucky as to find the four leaf clover, this little shamrock impressed into the paper causes you to pause and look and be in the moment.

Tiny Gilded Turkey

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Right in time for Thanksgiving I am excited to offer you my first holiday card – the tiny gilded turkey!  The cards are 3.5 x 5 (envelope included) and are blank inside making them perfect to send as well wishes for the holiday or thank you to your host and/or hostess for the festive day.  The turkey image is from a vintage letterpress block on my vintage letterpress machine.  Each one is individually hand printed on Crane Lettra paper.  You can feel the imprint of the image pressed into this lush paper, giving you pause, because this feels like something special.
