We took to the road to drive through the vast mountains of the Sierra Gorda, a region north of Queretaro city. Some of the roads took us high into the clouds, as the road wound in hairpin turns through misty little villages. This is an archeological site from the 5th century, the ruins of Las Ranas.

This Paperfinger menu was featured in the current issue of Rue Magazine. The story, “Magic in the Secret Garden,” was directed and styled by Lavender Joy Weddings (thanks Stefanie!) and shot by Ryan Ray. Florals by Bows & Arrows, dinnerware from Greta Bean. I’m so happy with how it all came together.
Read the full issue here in all it’s prettiness or skip straight to page 68 for our garden story.

I’m delighted to return for an afternoon at the Thornwillow shop, which lives inside The St. Regis Hotel, for a Valentine’s Day Salon.
Saturday, February 9th, I will be providing personalized calligraphy inscriptions on love notes and cards for all Thornwillow clientele from 3 to 6 pm.
It’s such a beautiful space and they produce some of the most elegant stationery you can find. Come visit! Have a Red Snapper while you’re there — the birthplace of the bloody mary, mmmm.
View the lovely invitation here.
I’ll be joined by Montblanc (fine pens) and Fleur du Mal (fine lingerie). Ooh la la!

Spent the other weekend in Bend, Oregon hiking around Smith Rock State Park where we watched crazy/impressive rock climbers repel down from “Monkey Face” rock; skiing and trekking at Mount Bachelor and the necessary face-plant of a nap after it was all over. Beautiful place!
(Pictures by us; and yes, got a bit filter happy with my new Snapseed app)

I always love working with Karen of Sunday Suppers and it’s a real pleasure to see the final results after providing her with calligraphy goods for one of her special Sunday gatherings.
For this supper, she hosted Béa Peltre of La Tartine Gourmande, who led the group in preparation of a summer dinner: Verrines of Fresh Crab, Apple, and Avocado with Lime and Ginger; Pea Risotto with Grilled Prosciutto, and Basil Oil; and Strawberry Blanc Manger en Verrines with its Strawberry Salad & Brown Butter Pistachio Financier.
The gorgeous floral arrangements were done by Nicolette Camille. I really like how she used cherries or garlic scapes as a part of the place setting.
I used soft white Arturo paper for its luxurious texture and torn edges. I wrote in black ink the place cards and thank you notes that were tucked inside vintage berry baskets holding some beautiful market treats.
