I love typography. I’m not an expert at it, but I certainly respect it as, at least to me, one of the most tedious and substantial forms of design given that letters are the basis of the content that drives so much practical design. I’m always excited to come across some vintage letters and always hope that whatever letters are available will be something that for whatever reason can be twisted into words or initials that are meaningful to me.

1. Industrial Salvaged NOIR Metal Letter Sign 2 FtTall by joevintage; 2. Vintagestyle ‘Old English’ Letter ‘T’ Painted Wood by Northstar50; 3. Simply ME Custom INITIAL Typeset Bitty Charm by princessbydesign; 4. Antique Letterpress Printers WOOD TYPE by TurnersCollectibles; 5. Various LETTERPRESS WOOD PRINTING BLOCKs type by bicigirl on Etsy; 6. Letterpress Type Drawer or Shadowbox / by ConceptFurnishings; 7. Wooden letter B nursery kids wall art letter by LettersofWood; 8. Vintage Marquee Letter Sign by THEFARMERSSHOP on Etsy; 9. Antique Enamelware Letters for Sign Your Choice by veraviola; 10. Letter a wooden lower case handcut hand painted by LettersofWood; 11. Mid Century Type Writer Smith Corona 250 by jojosvintagecupboard.

It’s maybe no coincidence that this summer I have been devouring BLTs (made with faux bacon, of course) + avocado and somehow B, L, T, and A, all found their way into this series.

I live with Kyle, my husband, in Kansas City, Mo. We have a dog, Oats, and a cat, Logan.

I am a development professional who specializes in museums and the performing arts. I write grants, fundraise, and assist with marketing in the form of donor communications. My academic background is in history and museum science, focusing on the presentation and interpretation of Africa in American museums.

As a freelancer, I work with clients in need of websites, Wordpress upgrades, and FileMaker Pro database solutions.

Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
