What a stunning project this was. Wow. The envelopes were the most beautiful shade of warm grey and the white ink just popped right off of them. Pair that with grey and white patterned envelope liners and pops of gold and pink and I call that an utterly irresistible combination!

i’m obsessed with these vintage cactus stamps! i am so disappointed by the post office’s current postage offerings. when i look at the creativity, artwork and subject matter of vintage stamps i have to wonder why we can’t have such cool stamps today. maybe in 30+ years today’s stamps will be interesting, but until then i prefer to go vintage.

well, i love vintage postage. i’m not an avid collector like some, but i do like scouting out auction lots of unused, old u.s. stamps and perusing the catalogs of estate sales. rather than keeping them in albums to preserve, i like to actually use them on special envelopes. these stamps are from a great stockpile of images by karen horton, who posts hundreds of vintage stamps — mostly european — to her tumblr page.

well, my holiday cards are finally finished! it feels like i’ve been working on them for months, from designing the card itself to collecting some great vintage stamps to addressing all the envelopes. it always feels so anticlimactic to drop so much work into the outgoing mailbox but that’s just part and parcel of being a calligrapher.

i spent the morning practicing my favorite hobby and catching up on my letter-writing. two pots of coffee, homemade green apple crumble, calligraphy, and an ocean of antique stamps to sort through — that’s a great saturday.

i’ve also been working on the design for my new calligraphy website. i hope to relaunch it soon! until then, though, it’s a big secret.

Here are a few pieces I’ve done in the past week or so. The top three images feature the 1940s “flair” set I blogged about last week and the fourth one is part of the 1970s “saffron & sealing wax” set.

You can always see these and more on my lettering site.

This afternoon I had an urge to bake so I made a batch of red velvet cupcakes. I love that red velvets are coming back in fashion because cream cheese frosting has always been my favorite. I was so inspired by the delicious color combination that I whipped up some red velvet calligraphy too.
