We decided to put together some goodie bags to send out to a few friends of ours in Los Angeles. We didn't want to send anything too bulky, or too much, we just the perfect amount of 'hooray' in the mail. After some thinking, we decided to send out a few vintage candy favorites - when we say vintage, we don't mean we dug out some candy bags from the 1950s. No, we meant our childhood favorite candies like - flavored sour straws, candy bracelets (who doesn't remember these!), and wax candy bottles. To top off the candy, we had amazing letterpress cards done by Metal Doily Press. They were absolutely stunning, and had the perfect touch of yellow - one of our favorite summer colors (that and blue).
Aren't these cards just lovely? We had a summer idea in mind, but didn't want to go overboard. While we wanted to celebrate summer with one last hurraw, we also wanted to invite our friends to see the new website in case they already haven't! So Metal Doily Press came up with this design, and it was absolutely perfect. In a few weeks, these arrived at our door ready to be shipped out!
A plate of sour straws (4 pounds worth). What more can we say...but yum!
Happy Summer! Enjoy these days before we enter fall (and that's a whole other celebration waiting to happen!).
