Drop Caps

New letterpress Drop Cap prints from wonder woman Jessica Hische (that wooden Y is one of the most delicious things I've ever seen).

20 Reasons Why I Want to Retire to Cape Cod

1. Rainbows over Provincetown (how appropriate).

2. Weathered CEDAR MOTHER F'ING SHAKE SHINGLES (I'm a little obsessed with these and want everything I own to be covered in them).

3. This is a private residence.

4. Lighthouses (and not in the cheesy-embroidered-on-a-couch-throw, resin-picture-frame kinda way).

5. This.

6. They respect they cats.

7. The Pilgrims knew what was up.

8. Her.

9. Whaling Captain Edward Penniman's house (I want this house, but minus the intense kamikaze fly infestation that we encountered... seriously, if you go to see this, be warned.)

10. The Three Sisters, one of the few remaining three-lighthouse configs in the world.

11. I'm pretty sure this is what's on the Cape Cod potato chip bag. Even if it's not, it's still amazing.

12. Yes, please.

13. These could be mine someday.

14. COLOR.

15. Even though I'm not a huge seafood fan (I know, right?) if I'm ever going to like it, it's going to be at a place that catches it THE DAY THEY SERVE IT in their BACKYARD. Right?

16. These.

17. "You can find me at Number 6".. yeah, that sounds right.

18. There is a zero percent chance that ANYone on Cape Cod is stressed out. Ever.

19. With this lunch view.

20. I mean come on.

I have had the worst case of wanderlust for, oh I don't know, MY WHOLE LIFE (or at least it seems like that lately), so my friend Anna and I have planned a tiny (but jam-packed) road trip this weekend.

We're going to Yale in New Haven, CT (I may or may not have been inspired by Gilmore Girls even though I KNOW they did no filming at Yale) and Cape Cod.

We're staying in Hyannis Port, MA and I can't help but feel a little like a Kennedy. You know, minus the whole fame-tragedy-money thing.

GAAAH I'm so excited. Is it Thursday yet?!

Kinda obsessed with this doormat...

Get yours (and maybe one for me too? k thanks!) here.


I received my re-issue of Rob Roy Kelly's delightful American Wood Type (1828-1900) today, and it's kind of a big deal. Get yours here.

Shameless plug: Want to own some delicious wood type of your very own? I just happen to know where you can get some...

Recently I've come across many wonderful vintage Thermos's (is that the correct plural? Thermosi? anybody know this?) and now it seems that I'm noticing them everywhere, like in this scene from Music of the Heart.

I think they're wonderful for flowers or, of course, beverages, and would be perfect for a summertime picnic. You can still grab these two from the shop (while they last) by going here and here.
