Friday Finds {primele}

I love calligraphy and the way that a good -- a really, really good -- calligrapher creates a work of art with every stroke of their pen.

I saw this envelope and immediately loved it. It's beautiful, whimsical and unique. And isn't the collection of stamps on the envelope great too?

The artist who created the beautiful calligraphy on the envelope is Patricia Mumau. She created this beautiful envelope too.

Her business is called primele and she also makes darling custom stamps.

And guess what? She is going to make one just for ONE OF YOU!

Every address is handwritten and made into a graphic. It's perfect for letters, books, and luggage tags. You can see more by visiting her etsy store.

To enter the contest leave a comment by Wednesday, September 15 at 12:00 midnight. I'll post the winner on Thursday morning.

  17. Oh, I would love to have one of these! Ever since I begged my 2nd grade teacher (Mrs. Becky) to show me how to "write just like her", I have been obsessed with writing. Mrs. Becky had the most beautiful penmanship that I've ever seen. That was 25 years ago and I still love "fancy" writing. These stamps are more than fancy; I think they qualify as "bride" as the girls would say. :)

    On a side note, and maybe this has been mentioned before, but is that one of your girls modeling the Shiver Sky Blue Lace Tee on the MJC website? It's hard to tell, because the girl is looking away, but I'd swear she is one of yours! :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Two Blue Rooms,

    That is Michal modeling on the MJ website. Kenna was on there too but she had on the Anna top and the stripee pants and they sold out really quickly so the photo came down.

    Thanks for noticing!
