On a stationery trip

As I'm in possession of an art a-level, I decided it would be fun to make our wedding invites in the run up to W-day last year. 

I'd been collecting old copies of French Vogue since I first set eyes on my engagement ring in the magazine, so we took some of our favourite images from the old mags and cut out our initials. 

We attached these on to some card to make the first page of the invite. 

Along with all the necessary information inside, we bundled up the little scamps and tied them together with bakers twine.

So while I was getting my rah on at the farmers' market recently, I was pretty excited to find a beauty of a stall selling stationery from design duo Martha and Hepsie. Here's why...

1. The girlies used bakers twine to tie up their stationery. GREAT MINDS!

2. Their designs are seriously fun little beauties. 

3. It's always very nice to own cards which aren't mass-produced by a high street stationery store.

4. Did I mention the bakers twine? 

A quick introduction later and here I am, the proud owner of my very own set of eight bird and animal designed note cards.

Which is pretty good timing, because I'm just back from honeymoon and plan to pen lots of letters telling loved ones about just how ruddy brilliant the trip was. 

(I'll be telling you about it soon too, brace yourselves!)

Look how pretty they are! 

Martha and Hepsie don't just do note cards. I suggest you check out their website to see all the fun stuff you can get your mitts on. I'm off to put pen to paper!
