Mint Week: Paper Goods


I suppose it's confession time. If you've been following at all this week, you may have noticed I promised to post some new mint-inspired artwork and card designs. In the end, I really wasn't in love with anything I created over the last 2 weeks. It's been a fun time for me in regards to color combos, decorating and photography...not so much on the art and graphic design side. Rather than try and "force" some art that simply isn't mean't to be right now, I'm choosing instead to showcase some amazing paper goods from Etsy sellers, NW artists and even big ol' stores like Anthropologie :) I hope you enjoy browsing. My first love will always be little note cards, so this was certainly fun to compile.

Mint Week: Great Thrifted Finds in Mint Green

Vintage mint


Thrift shopping, garage sale-ing and antique hunting are probably my three favorite things. I live in a fantastic city for it...being Portland, Oregon. There are so many interesting nooks and crannies to explore not 2 miles around my apartment, much less the whole city. I searched far and wide this week to provide you with some lovely vintage items, and vintage inspired knick-knacks in minty green. I hope you enjoy them.

Even more I hope you share this link, or ANY mint week link...and then leave me a comment letting me know you shared! This enters you in a contest to win a couple of the items I'll display in this post. It's super secret which one...enter and find out! Here are some Contest Instruction & Mint Week Buttons for those of you interested in the fine print.

Away we go!
