Handmade custom invitations & stationery

Remember our very well spoken romantic groom who so eloquently described a vision for his wedding day?  Gordon’s heartfelt words were featured on RiceInk months ago, just after the invitation design for his and Monika’s stylish, Swedish wedding was complete.  Here are those inspiring words again: “We want to express to you the feeling of a late summer’s afternoon with golden sunlight trickling through the trees. Baskets of apples and pears. Relaxed smiles after happy vacations. Boisterous conversation and laughter over glasses of champagne and bottles of beer. Creamy cake with berries. Kind of a garden party/barbeque equals good wedding […]

Each girl received a special, hand painted note from me featuring a […]

As you know, Paloma’s Nest pieces are among my favorites.  For me her Modern heirlooms are like a breath of fresh air.  Two pieces in particular play a part in my daily life and are cherished for their simple, yet profound message.  This is the heart of what makes a Paloma’s Nest piece so impacting – simple message filled with sincerity, heart and hope. The new Paloma’s Nest site is live and it is simply gorgeous.  Tons of new features to make custom ordering a breeze and the lovely new Heirloom Packaging are just some of the highlights surrounding Caroline’s […]
