it's spring!

so it begins, the season of birthdays, favorite blooms, & tidying up. in an effort to exit the cycle of foolish consumerism (a major cause of disarray at home), i’ve been doing my best to have more intention with my purchases, to be careful to select only items of quality & meaning.

many thanks to designer & creative director vanessa correa, who shared similar sentiments recently on her blog, very thoughtfully pointing to BRIKA (plus paper & type) as a means to that well-crafted life! friends, have a peek at BRIKA’s latest makers, their stories & crafts. shop now, & use code “paper&type” for 10% off your purchase (code is valid until june 1st & applies to one purchase per customer).
