Notes of Holiday Cheer

Sent out your Christmas cards yet? If you haven't, we are sure you are not alone. This holiday, consider pairing down your card list and select cards that are both stylish and sustainable.

Smock Paper has a very lovely selection of letterpress Christmas cards printed on sustainable bamboo. The Peace and Joy Folded Cards are an elegant and neutral look for sending out cards past the Christmas holiday...in the event you don't get them out before Christmas. ;)

Smock Paper also has a very unique selection of Christmas wrap. As designers, Lauren and Ruthie are always on the lookout for fun and beautiful paper. These sheets of paper are not only well designed, they are made of 100% post consumer recycled paper. Your gifts will look good and you won't be contributing to the very large amount of waste produced each year by wrapping paper.

We love the pink Christmas trees! Visit Smock to purchase this wrapping paper.

The Bolero

Take a look at these beautiful bolero jackets. A lovely alternative to a shawl or wrap. So romantic and a perfect wedding accessory for a cooler weather wedding.

This bolero (above) comes from TianaChe's Etsy Shop.

We also love this very classy silk bolero from Mary and Angelika Etsy shop.

Not only are these great for a wedding, they are perfect for an evening out or formal event. Also a very appropriate accessory for a Christmas party!

Visit Etsy to view more fun bolero jackets. There are so many styles and colors, you are sure to find one that will suit you and your taste.
