More lovely things...via Wit and Whistle

Wit & Whistle is one of my favorite shops to check in on from time to time. Each item is beautifully made and then, with equal parts thoughtfulness and care, beautifully photographed and presented.  

Amanda Wright, from Cary, North Carolina, continues to expand her wares to include stationery and home goods. All of her paper products are printed locally on recycled paper and her line of creative, quirky stamps have a simple design that is both modern and playful. 

All of Amanda's popular wood-mounted rubber stamps are laser engraved from her original designs and are each packaged inside a drawstring muslin bag.  

I am a bit of a notebook fanatic as I tend to have a lot of ideas that should be written down- otherwise, they're quickly lost into oblivion. A pretty notebook, as seen here, is the perfect accessory (much like a pen in my hand) to help me focus and organize all those things floating around in my head and start to make sense of it...

Amanda also sells her original artwork. This is a mixed media painting, using gouache and ink, of her heart-leaf philodendron plant. She's such a talented one...and so fun to check in on. See the entirety of the Wit & Whistle shop, 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.

Checking in with Wit & Whistle...

One of my favorite stationery shops in the South is Wit & Whistle. Amanda Wright from North Carolina creates and crafts amazing paper goods that you immediately want to covet all your own. She recently ventured into stamps, which, as a lover of a good impression, I truly appreciate. 

I may just need this hello stamp in my life. Trouble is which one? They're both so amazingly cute and perfect...

Now this may be my favorite. The ant stamp.

I can see kids and adults having a lot of fun with this one. The single ant is just as cute as the parading line of curious ants up your paper, to your envelope... And looks great on a gift tag. 

Amanda has created some charming stamps that work well for all sorts of stationery needs. I like that if you buy more than one, the stamps all have a cohesive look...

Amanda's jotters are what first caught my attention, and she keeps adding to the collection. These three would be nice to add to your laptop bag, your purse, place on your kitchen counter, atop your desk. Pretty and practical...that's a good combo.

Wit & Whistle

I love a soothing color palette and graphic artist, Amanda Wright from North Carolina manages to inspire and calm all at the same time. These technicolor cards grabbed my attention and made me curious to see more...

Amanda sells over a dozen card sets on her Etsy site, Wit and Whistle. Many have a modern feel yet convey a personal touch. Amanda explains, "I find modern geometric patterns appealing but I think I love the hand drawn, organic style even more."

I'm a fan of her little notebooks, or jotters. Amanda likes how they can fit in your back pocket. I work as a tv producer in the field and I'm constantly buying small notebooks that can fit in my pocket, as having a notepad easily accessible is a must. And of course...I prefer for them to be pretty just like these. 

All her greeting cards are beautifully designed. As she explains, "I find inspiration by keeping up with blogs, flipping through design books and making a point to observe the world around me." She adds, "When all else fails, I just sit down with my sketchbook and rack my brain until I think of something." 

This pretty white roses piece is a hand pulled, screen print made from an original illustration. She's only making 50 available so grab one soon if you're an admirer. Such a lovely shop, thanks for sharing Amanda.
