Everytime I
go past, this wall makes me laugh
Laugh on the inside

Bespoke Press

I received some lovely letterpress stationery in the mail. (I bought it.) It is not bespoke but it is by Bespoke Press, a Queensland-based company. The notecards look and feel gorgeous. Apparently they're printed on tree- and chlorine-free cotton paper made from reclaimed cotton fibres from the textile industry. They come with a recycled kraft envelope packaged inside a biodegradable bag. Ooh. I can't wait to send out some notes.

Bespoke Press even chucked in a free notecard, which was nice, especially as I bought my cards at a discount. Check out their store, website and blog. Being Bespoke Press, they specialise in bespoke invitations but they also do prints like the Letterpress Vintage Chair Print.

I can't explain this

It is so gross that
My hand smells like the inside
Of a boxing glove

Gosh, I want to go to bed but I also want to ice my cake first*

I just baked a cake.
I really want to ice it
But it is too warm.

*I just realised the title to this haiku also has seventeen syllables. Unintentionally.


Lettergirl - sounds like a superhero who spends her days liberating us from Comic Sans and Verdana. It's actually an etsy store selling customised return address stamps. Why write when you could stamp?

I have a package waiting at my parents' house

I like packages,
Pretty letterpress notecards
And unwrapping gifts.

Just saw Up in 3D

There should be more films
About geriatric folk
And the things they do

I have an irrational love of the sequinned blazer. I have not found one that doesn't make me look like an elderly Chinese woman (at least I don't look like a Michael Jackson impersonator) but I continue to search. I am liking the one above, from Kookai, but I'm unsure if it must be worn with a very high-cut bathing suit and shoes that would be very unflattering on my short person's legs. My latest discovery is that Aussie designers Camilla and Marc are doing a line for cheap Aussie chainstore Portmans including, you guessed it, a sequinned blazer! If the quality is more C&M than Portmans, it may be the one. Otherwise, I may be forced to DIY, like Camille from Childhood Flames.

Moustaches on random objects are cute

I like moustaches
Only on inanimate
Objects, not people
