Catbird is also one of my go-tos for cards. Any sort of card, really: thank you, welcome baby, I love you, congrats on your wedding, sorry not sorry, happy birthday, you name it. When the card actually serves no precise purpose but has an irresistible illustration on its cover, I still buy it and I keep it for myself. I like to frame them and hang them up on the wall. Improvised wall art, if you will. Anyway, all this nonsense just to say that when I popped in there the other day to pick up a birthday card for my dad when this Garance Doré print was screaming at me to be taken home. Naturally, I obliged.
The letter plate is from the magical land of John Derian and it was a wedding present. I adore it and have been debating forever now if whether I want to keep is on its back or find some sort of fixture to hang it on the wall. Still pondering the issue... Inside the plate is another H letter, this one being another gift from my dear friend Stephanie, which is a charm for a necklace. As for the jade elephant chain, that's one of my dearest pieces of jewelry, a gift from my grandmother.
