This month marks the first time I've ever had real business cards, the kind that come in a large box with a sample card on top. I really loved the sweet letterpressed business cards that Alyson & Levi made for us, but the more I thought about it, the more special it seemed to have had those only for Little Winter. I managed to keep one in my possession; it will always be a little treasure.
Yesterday Geoff picked up our new business cards, pictured above. I really loved this photograph of the flowers from Becka & Richard, and incorporated it into the design for our shop. Geoff reminded me that the photo was reminiscent of the album cover for New Order's Power, Corruption, & Lies, designed by Peter Saville. I took it as a compliment (even though it was not deliberate). I think this card represents us very nicely.
This leather business card holder by Erin Templeton is one of my favourite things at the moment. When I first saw it at Robber ($20), I thought it was hilarious & amazing and I had to have it; I've really never felt any emotion towards business card holders before. It has such a nice texture and it can be worn as a necklace! How amazing! Perfect for schmoozing, of course (oh I am such a pro at that. Just kidding). Sometimes I wish I had picked up the one in tan-coloured leather, but this one is nice too.
I wore it at Little Winter and it attracted many questions and compliments. I loved flipping it over to show people the gold-stamped "Erin Templeton" on the back.
becka: Yes! I think Chicago has way more of them, and Toronto has painted them all over. Sad.
caroline: So yummy!
chelsea: Aw, Chelsea, that is so sweet of you to say! I think it is a very photogenic city, especially when the light is just right. Hey, nothing wrong with that! It just means that that one dish was so good you could have it over and over.
lavelle: Such a great little camera! I definitely have gotten my money's worth out of it.
Siubhan: I'm glad you enjoyed those little details!
Ayalah: Har har, right?!
Jennette: Hello, Jennette! It was nice to meet you too! Thanks so much for saying hello! Oh, I think I had heard of Olympic Provisions. We didn't have the opportunity to visit many restaurants -- eating at food carts at lunch time was always enough to keep us full past dinnertime!
Kate: Oh no, it's yummy? We never got to try it! I'm glad you like that photo of Alice! Also, I hope you can get some use out of your LC-A! I totally forgot that it took a battery so if mine starts acting funny I'll know what it could be. It can be magical, when it works... I love the sort of fogginess it gives the pictures! And when you hit the sweet spot right, watch out! So good!
annie: Thank you! Oh I'm getting hungry now.
melly: Thanks, Melly! It was so beautiful! And oh those mitts -- make me wish I could knit!
Jen: Thank you, and once again, thanks for the correction. Yikesssss. So glad you can comment!
sunshine by sara: Thank you! And yes, film is so great! Oh, we saw Le Pigeon but I think they were closed at the time and we didn't make it back. Next time!
golden dove design: Yeah!
kater: Um, cutest comment ever! You win!
ladylyles: Haha, I should work for the tourism board! It's a lovely city!
etre-soi: Thank you, I'm glad you liked them!
Jane Flanagan: Thanks, Janey!
Neon Relish: Thanks, Casey! I hope you make it, and I can't wait to see your film results (do it!).
Barbara: Thank you, that's sweet of you to say.
cori: Thanks, Cori! It was so nice to meet you too! You will always be "girl in the beautiful grey dress" to me!
mara: Thank you! Oh yes, everything we had there was delicious. Yum.
susan: Amazing! That's what happened to me -- I haven't worn my contacts more than 2 or 3 times since getting my glasses from WP. And thank you!
