pretty paper thursday

and now for your thursday-dose of prettiness...

today's PPT is thanks to Laura who emailed me this sweet message this morning:

just saw these letterpress recipe cards on etsy and thought they were really adorable. Since it is pretty paper thursday and you've mastered several recipes, I thought of you.

see?! pot roast and letterpress make the world a happier place!

anyhoo, i checked out seller One Canoe Two's Etsy shop and found not only the delightful recipe cards Laura told me about but a woodcut print of Barcelona that i absolutely fell in love with and snapped up for the cottage!

how great would these be for a kitchen shower (either for the bride-to-be or as a hostess gift?)

i'm a-thinkin' i just might need some as my current recipe categorization method invovles chicken-scratch on slips of paper, post-its and business cards all shoved into cookbooks / the dollar-store recipe book that i don't actually write recipes in.

and here's my new print! can't wait to frame it and find a place for it!

thanks again Laura! and One Canoe Two!


as an added PPT bonus {that has nothing to do with PPT}, i thought i'd share this article Evs sent me today about 5 Gold-Medal Wines for Under $13... drink well, not necessarily lavishly, i always say! (well, actually i've never said that but it makes good sense and now i shall begin saying it)
