Don’t you adore the idea of having a custom calligraphy stamp to press on all of your envelopes before popping them in the mail? I do. I came across these recently designed by Patricia Muman for Primele and I heard my credit card squeal in delight followed by a brief happy dance! Credit cards love to come out and play, don’t they? It’s hard to keep them contained, they are such social little creatures! :)
Patricia also does custom work, which I think is divine and perfect for a special event! I particularly adore her Thank You flat note set for only $18.
Do you remember the gorgeous shop tour of Bison that was featured here on decor8 in December? If not, click here to indulge yourself — especially drool-worthy if you have a thing for gorgeous ceramics!
Well today on this bright and sunny Thursday (at least here where the weather has been like a dream all week) I have good news for you! Bison creative director/designer Brian Tunks wrote in to let decor8 readers know that they now have a small online shop and ship worldwide. Yay!
About the shop Brian says, “We make 140 shapes in 28 colours so we had to limit the online pieces (normally 2 week turnaround) but we can also ship internationally and customers can order anything from the collection (not only the range that they see online) but it can take between 4-6 weeks for us to hand-craft the pieces. We encourage people to contact us directly by email for custom orders.” You can contact Brian at brian AT bisonhome.com. I also want to note that there is a AUD$100 minimum for ordering online.
I really like the small and large mixing bowls and the pinch pots! Do you spot any that you like?
