new goods from rifle paper co.

we wanted to follow up on our previous post and show a few more snapshots of one our newest paper lines, rifle paper co. it wasn't too long ago that anna and nathan bond opened their (internet) doors, and ever since, we've been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to purchase their wares for the shop. anna designs vintage-inspired stationery incorporating her own illustrations, and the sentiments range from small:

to the biggest of big:

and everything in between:

who doesn't need a boston terrier wearing a bomber hat?
(and p.s. rifle does custom calling cards with this little pup, too!)

we even have a few of the abc animal charts in stock.
a perfect baby gift!

so pretty....

natural life 100% cotton pom pom scarves are in at o'suz.
even better than the color palette is the price. they are 32 each!
with this price, you can afford to splurge on more than one.
it's a really great transitional scarf, cuz as we all know,
there is still heat in our future, regardless of our desire to usher in fall.

(cream coming soon!)
