Thanksgiving Photo Cards by Delphine for Cardstore

Thanksgiving photo cards by Delphine for Cardstore 2013Our new Thanksgiving photo card collection for Cardstore is live! I love that you can order a single card, so you can personalize it for a specific person, or send out a whole bunch. Hook Cardstore up with your address book and they’ll even handle the envelope addressing, stamping, sealing and mailing for you. Easy as pumpkin pie! Some of these cards are a whole new look for us (hello, watercolors), so please let us know what you think of the new designs.

Wine and Cheese

wine and cheese party via delphine

 

Chilly weather is the perfect time for casual get togethers with neighbors and friends. My parents are the ultimate hosts, and they taught me to always have some cheese, wine and crackers in the kitchen, so as to be prepared for guests at any time. The tip has served me well, and I’m looking forward to lots of impromptu happy hours at my place with my neighbors this winter.

Right now I use an old wood cutting board for serving, but it’s old in a scary did-you-find-that-in-a-dumpster way, not in a that-must-be-from-a-turn-of-the-century-estate-sale kind of way. I’d love to have a fancy slate board or a pretty wood serving paddle so I can serve in style (holiday elves, are you listening?). Also on my wish list is the darling juice glass caddy from Bixby & Ball — I’d use it for dips, cornichons, and olives.

Entertaining wish list, clockwise from Crate & Barrel Slate Board / Crate & Barrel Cheese Tool Set / Northern Natives Numbered Wood Coasters via Etsy / Yummy Saxelby Cheesmongers Choice / Orange & Pear Rams Head Knife Set / Crate & Barrel Acacia tree slice serving platter / West Elm Raw Wood Board /Bixby & Ball Juice Glass Caddy

Cutest Halloween Costumes

Lizard Halloween Costume photo by Jessica Davis

I just cannot get enough of these cute little munchkins dressed up for Halloween. It’s Jessica Davis‘ favorite holiday of the year, and it really shows in her photos. This year I was chatting with her about Alexander’s costume idea, and she convinced me to make costumes for John and me, too. So I’m going to blame her for my lack of sleep as I stay up all night tonight sewing and gluing.

Family Halloween Costume Ideas

Today our UPS delivery guy was wearing a hoodie parka with his shorts … I think it’s a sure sign that it is, indeed, Fall here in Charleston. Now that it’s Fall, the next logical thing on the mighty to do list is to think of a really clever Halloween costume.

Canadian Flag Spandex Halloween CostumeOur son is thinking about being a robot this year, and I’m trying to convince John to be a Canadian (long story), but so far we haven’t decided on anything yet. If you have any great ideas please let me know.

Pictured above, some of my favorite Halloween costume ideas: The Kid from UP, Bowl of Spaghetti, Bandit Family.

San Rafael | Font Geek

San Rafael Font Love via DelphineCrystal Kluge has done it again! Another perfectly charming font. The San Rafael font is sorta girly, sweet, and on the casual side, but still sophisticated enough for a wedding invitation. I think it would be particularly fun for an autumn apple picking party invitation.

Wish List for my Alter Ego

christmas wish list for erika's alter egoI’ve been so busy at the studio that I hardly noticed the entire Fall season swoosh by in a flash. We don’t have a television in our bedroom, so I watch a lot of HBOgo. I’m so bummed that the Bored to Death season is over already! Sidenote: I recently met a man who is a dead ringer for Ray’s character. True story … during an important, albeit impromptu, meeting he wandered away from the group to stretch. Someone asked him what he was doing stretching during an important meeting and he said, “I’m not stretching, I’m practicing my gay throw. If I just move your hand like this I can look gay, but I have to practice.” Ummmmm, no words.

Inspired by Jonathan on Bored to Death, here are some goodies my alter-ego would love: No. 1 Versace for H&M leather studded jacket   No. 2 Duotone glasses from Warby Parker   No. 3  Shiny & bright orange rain boots from Cole Haan   No. 4 Nearly neon ring from Pomeletto    No. 5 Skinny cords with zippers à la 1985 from Anthropologie   No. 6 Shiny green-blue “henley regatta” Butter nail polish    No. 7  A faux leopard trapper hat (J. Crew) to keep my ears warm.
