fun summer postcards

I stumbled across these great little postcard sets. Both reminded me of summer in different ways. Plus summer is a great time to enjoy the nice weather, sit on the patio and write all your pen pals.
These bright, sketchy, geometric designs are from Cotton & Flax. They are simple, no-nonsense postcards. Like a relaxing summer day plus I think anyone would enjoy receiving one of these. 

These scenic postcards are from One Canoe Two. They remind me of summer family vacation plus I love a good quote!

Many of the little friends in our life remember our pooch, Wynston, way more then they remember us. So I figured they needed some snail mail love from him. Here's Wynston's debut postcard.

I stumbled across this lovely jewelry line created by Courtney Fischer. The jewelry is created in these beautifully bold colors, organic shapes, lots of texture and all about pattern.  Each piece is a little work of art.
