Bon Voyage

As huge fans of The Deadliest Catch, this trip was also a good excuse to eat here. (Try the halibut!)


Another discovery from the Stationary Show was Jezebel. Check out their "Gilded Lillies" Collection:

If I were still living in Minneapolis, one of my goals was to take letterpress classes here. In addition to these charming calling cards, Sesame Letterpress has a stunning collection of wedding invitations, personal notecards and baby announcements like these:
