A visit to Minted

Hello friends!  Today is an absolutely gorgeous spring day and I've got all things floral on my mind.  A trip to the garden store has me inspired, as well as an online trip to Minted!
The folks at Minted recently contacted me and I was delighted to visit their amazing website.  I've been familiar with their products, but this latest visit has me blown away by all the new offerings.
Did you know they not only carry designs for business cards and holiday cards, but also gorgeous wedding themed cards, gifts and beautiful art prints from a diverse group of talented artists?

This lovely spring floral art print caught my eye.  It is called 'Meander' and designed by Betty Hatchet:

Another surprise I discovered while perusing was that one of my favorite artists, Olivia Kanaley, is a designer for Minted.  I have always admired Olivia's work for many years, first discovering her via her contributions to Victoria magazine.  Now I can continue to admire her work on Minted and via her fabulous contributions on their Julep blog.  Her posts can be found here.

I am crushing on these fabric favor boxes she posted about (Minted offers fabrics, too):

There are a plethora of designs to choose from for wedding invitations, cards, save-the-date postcards, etc. in the latest wedding collection.
I love that they offer numerous choices in their search criteria, and you know I clicked the 'Vintage' option straight away!  This design by Cadence Paige just stole my heart:

My brother-in-law is getting married this year, and I was so excited to discover that his save-the-date postcard and shower invitation were designed on Minted!  I knew I recognized those from our fridge. This is the design he used for save-the-date:

I adore how it looks like a chalkboard sign - there are many designs like that available.

Well, you know what I'll be doing this November...spending a lot of time on Minted choosing a holiday card for our family.  And there's always our next celebration to plan for. :)

Thanks for visiting.

Lilac time!

The windows are open, the birds are chirping, and my house smells of heavenly lilacs!  Spring is here to stay.

I've had this bookshelf standing on our living room buffet since Christmas, and thought I'd take some photos of how it's styled today with a combination of my favorite things...

Vintage clocks and books are the best pairing, don't you think?

Ribbons, old keys and tarnished silver aren't so bad together, either...

This lovely lady hasn't minded sitting in this box for a while...

Happy spring, friends!
