PAPER PASTRIES - L.A.



Paper Pastries is a Los Angeles-based stationery company that I recently read about on Beach Bungalow 8. Owner/Artist/Blogger Margaret Haas creates some very cool vintage inspired designs, such as the typewriter above.

I was left awe-struck by her lovely calligraphy - she will custom design a handwritten invitation just for you! I love the pairing of hand calligraphy with blue ink on this pink-y floral envelope.

This camera is just one of several designs included in her "Classic Cameras" stationery set available in her Etsy shop. I loved it! Also, don't forget to visit Margaret's blog, too.

I love the lettering too. Wish I had not thrown away my only typewriter...it looked like the one shown but hurt my fingers to type. I will check her shop.

Thanks Anne and a happy Monday to you.
