Music Monday: Hello My Old Heart

  Hello, my old heart, How have you been? Are you still there inside my chest? I've been so worried, You've been so still, Barely beating at all. I love this song by the Oh, Hellos because it's a love song to the heart. Its not a traditional wedding song, but I like it for your reception playlist.

Love, Love, Love + An Attempt at Hand-Lettering

Did you know I own a few letterpress machines? I do. They remain unused though because I can't seem to find a suitable design to have a plate made to actually print something. And that design I would love to hand-letter myself so I have something totally custom, but my hand-lettering pretty much sucks. I've used this debacle as an excuse for 2 YEARS as the reason I haven't fired up the letterpr[...]

In the Shop: A 1920's Kodak No. 2 Folding Cartridge Premo

I have a weak spot for 1920's cameras, so when this one made it's way into my store I had to snatch it up before someone else did! This one is a Kodak No. 2 Folding Cartridge Premo. It was made between 1916 to the mid 1920's and was designed for the amateur photographer. It's amazing to me that something that is 100 years old with so many intricate parts is still in tact and usable a[...]
