Mayberry Sparrow


I really love these original hand carved block prints from Etsy seller Mayberry Sparrow. The Swedish horse notecards are my favorite (in blue, although other colors are available), I’d love to see this print on a tea towel, wouldn’t you? Mayberry Sparrow also does custom work, as she says, “I’m always happy to carve another stamp!”.

In addition to stationery, I even spotted some pretty handmade blankets. Mayberry Sparrow has a dash of whimsy to their work that I really like, it’s colorful and just makes me smile. In the end, isn’t that why we are so drawn to design of all kinds, because it just makes us feel good?

Mrs.Me (The Netherlands)

Oooooo look what Danielle from the Style Files wrote about today – Mrs.Me and their new ‘Falcon and the Swan’ collection. The moment I shared it with my husband, he said he wanted to outfit our entire bedroom this way. Hmmm. Perhaps this could be a great solution for couples that cannot decide on how to decorate the bedroom. It’s either too girly or too masculine these days, but Mrs.Me seems to appeal equally to both sexes. I’m thrilled my husband is in step with this, perhaps I can jump on his request before he changes his mind? Now I just have to figure out how and where to order it since it seems to only be sold in Holland right now. I’ll email them and if I hear back some good news regarding US stores that carry them, I’ll update this post, deal?
