I like pretty paper.

Back in August, our local Anthropologie had an event demonstrating the art of letterpress. Lauren, of Blue Eye Brown Eye, brought her printing press and explained the process of creating beautiful letterpressed cards and even let us press a couple on our own. And of course, it was followed by brunch foods, which is my favorite meal of the day.

Brunch at Anthropologie? Why yes, thank you, I will.

Fast forward several weekends later, and Jack and I found ourselves at the Dallas Flea. If you've never been, it's a fair of Etsy-style vendors: paper, vintage clothing, handmade jewelry, etc. There were all kinds of beautiful items, although it was a bit crowded.

I found Lauren (who's also an Aggie!) again there where she was selling her beautiful letterpressed cards. Below are just a few of my favorites. I picked up some sets to give as gifts, but those are being kept as a surprise for some people who read this on occasion. I honestly could've bought one of everything!

Aren't these so fun? I never can find a good, minimum cheese baby card, until now.
And the deer card birthday card is perfection for a certain Mr. Gentry.

One more thing to love about cards from Blue Eye Brown Eye.
They are printed right here in good 'ol Cowtown.

You can also find Lauren's cards being sold nationwide at Anthropologie, although you'll find a larger selection in her Etsy shop here!
