welcome to the debut of the penpal project.
marta and i, real life penpals, have collaborated on a brand new line of products for her shop, and today we are thrilled to take it to market! we're introducing a terrific medium, the postcard print. where stylish prints double as a one-of-a-kind postcard. perfect for dropping a line, sending a favorite recipe, or dressing up some pegboard.

choose from two 5-piece sets of prints within each of our three collections:
autumn. delightful bits and pieces of the season that has recently stolen our hearts. from orchard scenes to apple pie makings to harvest time and festive pumpkins. (photographed by summer)
homemade happiness. simple, cheery still-lifes, straight from my kitchen. thick slices of cake, afternoon cookies, squares of cobbler, creamy frostings and pretty sprinkles. all your favorite baked from scratch sweets! (photographed by summer)
cloud & country. spotlights the marvelous features of classic countryside. big, beautiful sky, lonely livestock, rolling fields behind farm fences, vintage Ford trucks all in a row, sunny wildflowers, and rustic barns. (photographed by marta)

each postcard set is $10.00 and includes five assorted postcard prints. the cards feature high quality stock and a lovely finish. the frontside is worth hanging around the house, and the backside has plenty of clean space for your friendly greetings and favorite stamp.
we hope the penpal postcards inspire you to pick up the timeless tradition of mail. the postcard is an almost effortless way to dabble in this art. so simple, all you need is a pen and a nice line. if there's one thing i've learned from marta, it's that the mailbox is a powerful instrument in our lives. such a perfect outlet for thinking of others. let's start using it! far and wide, often and always.

ps. just had to throw this in. personally, i am in love with the postcards. i'm going to frame a few together and hang them up in my kitchen. and i am so delighted to be a part of this project. and absolutely ecstatic to see my own work in print. thank you, marta, for everything.
