I’ll Keep You Posted

In Great Expectations Charles Dickens wrote, “There was something very comfortable in having plenty of stationery.”

I could not agree more! Most of us either have a stash of greeting cards on hand for every occassion ready to pop in the mail, or are constantly scrambling to find the perfect card or small gift at the very last minute.

Which one are you?

Sign up for my Potluck Post Subscription and either add to your stash or send the just received card with vintage postage to a loved one tout de suite.

Monthly subscriptions will include a Bean & Noodle notebook and one card paired with a set of vintage stamps. 

Each thoughtfully created and curated themed shipment will be a surprise, and the notebook and card will either be letterpress, block printed, or even upcycled and recovered with vintage ephemera. Either way it will always be made by my human hands.

Shipping, delivery, and sales tax are included on all subscriptions in the U.S.

The very air between them seemed to crackle…

To the untrained eye this may look like I have plans for a weekend curled up reading mild romance novels. I’ve been visiting the Lions Club weekly to scoop up these and some lovely hard cover books for a couple projects. If you came out to see me on Saturday you may have noticed the paper valentine garland hung on the front of my booth. I had hoped to make at least a few of these to sell but only had time to pop out this prototype using stamps.

If you read the flags closely you can see I made this valentine bunting out of Harlequin Romance novel pages. I am certain not one person realized it, but I knew. And it made me smile.

Friday Favorites: Celtic mysticism, egss, and printing

Hubert Delattre, Suliane Brahi, and Laurent Capelluto

Watching & Knitting
I’ve been alternately binging and savoring this dark gem of a TV series. Black Spot often reminds me of Twin Peaks with its strange and mysterious town folk, but it’s the shot of Celtic mysticism that elevates this nordic noir drama above all the other “missing girl in the woods” dramas.

French with English subtitles, so keep the knitting simple. Available on Netflix

And if you like your humor dark too…
The Flight Attendant made up for the 2h 35m I will never gain back after being swayed to subscribe to HBO Max to watch WW84 on Christmas night. Watch The Flight Attendant on HBO Max

The Squeals on the Bus
I’m so glad for the replay of this episode of This American Life. It was just what I needed.

Eggs in Purgatory
This egg recipe is so on the menu this weekend!

Print is Not Even Close to Dead
UK printer and type designer Tom Boulton wants everyone to print and has designed the F-Press, an affordable, lightweight, and portable press created with a 3D printer… talk about full circle! He has surpassed his crowdfunding goal and will be making and shipping F-Presses later this year.

I think I need one.
