i stumbled across this lovely shop and thought i must share it with you!  marianne from huldra press is a whimsical letterpress printer and bookbinder that is inspired by animals, myths and the contrasts between country and city life.  her passion certainly shows in her work- and all the better?  she uses 100% recycled paper.


most interesting fact: huldra press is inspired by scandinavian folklore about a forest creature who appears as a woman with a fox’s tail.  thanks for being a conscious crafter marianne!

lightning bugs by cricketpress

to me, summer isn’t here until the lightning bugs come out.  tonight they made their first grand appearance.  my breath was taken away when i went outside, and i caught myself laughing as i stood in our yard.  they were everywhere!  it took me back to the days when my sister and i used to catch them and use them as nightlights in our bedroom (kinda cruel?).  how beautiful it is that they come and light up our yards.  so, i was inspired to find some fellow lightning bug- lovers!  here are a few more…
