Simply Put

If you live in Atlanta, you're probably a fan of the west side of town. I often find myself in the White Provision stores, (or across the street) perusing and grabbing something good to eat. So I was happy to stumble upon a new store called Simply Put. 

Ashley Woodman began designing invites and stationery in 1999. Her classic yet modern style attracted a lot of attention and over time she has been able to build her business. Her new workspace, where she takes and fills orders, now has a storefront, filled with fun and pretty items for the home. She has three rotating sections of the store that carry their own theme: Farm to Table (kitchen), Trophy Wife (couples related and some more masculine items) and Game Night which needs little explanation. Above is Game Night. 

This is a well curated shop. So many of the items are ones you haven't seen in other shops. I always like finding a well designed, unique gift for my nieces or nephews and all her kid items fit my needs to a T.

Before the store front opened, Ashley was always at the stationery shows. They would routinely bring some candy to add a little color and personality to their booth. Now it's a good luck charm and a whole candy counter is a part of the space. 

So much in Ashley's store is customizable, including these fabulous posters. They work great for a kid's room or a centerpiece for an event. It's my parents 50th wedding anniversary coming up and making a professional poster for them sounds fun...

There's lots of pretty stationery to find here. But that's to be expected....

Ashley let me know that her and her Simply Put team are designers first and foremost. For over ten years now, she's been designing and customizing a bevy of items- from the basic invite down to the napkins and matchboxes. So if you're looking to create a look for your wedding or next party, she can customize it all and give it a cohesive design theme for all your elements. I love everything in her store so that's a good sign that I'd also love her design work. 

Ashley grew up in Augusta, Georgia and her Southern roots are never far. As she explains, "No matter how modern or out of the box I get, I'm deeply rooted in tradition." There are some unexpected items in her shop, like the candy or some hair ties but as she says, "They are all things that I love. They may not fit but they're unexpected and me." And it's true, Simply Put is a collection of her favorite things. But now... their mine too.

I just found this place too, everything is so great in here. I'm obsessed with the candy counter myself.
