Rob Wilson 

Over the winter holiday, you may remember a Texas artist I featured named Rob Wilson. His incredible images are graphic and bold with a dose of good humor and forever memorable. He's one of my favorite artists and the best part is, his library of goods just keeps getting better and better...

The Shop at Renee Rhyner & Co., based in Dallas, Texas, carries many of Rob's illustrations that are in large, fine art canvas form. He also offers his original images in notecards which run the gamut from wedding and birthday to pets, love, babies, Texas icons and 'fun.' 

Rob's work is instantly recognizable and as far as I can tell, instantly likeable. He's got a knack for great design that draws you in and leaves you lingering for a moment or two- It makes me wonder what his home looks like?? 

For more about Rob, check out his site here, or find his large format prints at the Renee Rhyner shop here. Happy weekend...

Belle and Union

The other day, I was visiting the Westside area of Atlanta and walked into Simply Put, Ashley Woodman's lovely stationery and gift shop. This berry basket full of pretty tea towels caught my eye and when I saw that the contents were handmade in Savannah, Georgia, well I knew I had to learn more... 

After receiving a Graphic Arts degree at SCAD and acquiring freelance gigs creating custom stationery, Meg Sutton decided to just dive in and start her own business. She named it Belle and Union

I'm sorry but I think I've fallen madly in love with this Darlin' tea towel (with clementines). I'd say it's pretty perfect for a southern kitchen... 

Meg's style is all her own as she combines her talent for illustration with her incredible hand lettering skills. Along with the tea towels, Meg also creates greeting cards, boxed notes, jotters & gift wrap. 

Hands down, my favorite is You Butter My Biscuit. Such a fun collection... peruse the entirety of Meg's shop here or buy her greeting cards directly here.

Wit & Whistle goodness...

One of my favorite stationery shops is Wit & Whistle, which I've featured before on Sweet Peach. Every time I check out Amanda Wright's shop, I see new things to admire...and share. I especially like her venturing into the world of pretty tea towels.

Her 30" x 30" flour sack tea towels are silk screened with her own hand drawn designs. And the best part is the towels get softer and more absorbent with use. 

New to her shop are these lovely pillow covers. Amanda designs them and her mom sews each and every one. I love that. 

Amanda's talents truly shine in her stationery line. Her Snail Mail notecards are beautifully designed and as sweet as pie...


Amanda offers over 50 cards and over a dozen jotter notebooks. It's the kind of shop where you'll want to buy a bunch of items and then use them as needed throughout the year. 

And seeing how Easter is less than a couple weeks away, I thought this holiday card was apropos. And so cute.
