Lucky Penny.

Friday the 13th is known as an unlucky date, full of bad happenings.

For me, this one started out not-so-bad but got pretty rocky in the afternoon. Then a phone call from my father at the end of my work day made everything else fade away...

My beautiful and lovely baby sister gave birth to a baby of her own. Penelope Sue, our wonderfully lucky Penny. Mom, Dad and Baby are doing well, and I cannot wait to talk with them (well, maybe not with Penny just yet ;) tomorrow once they've had a chance to recover from the fantastic journey they took today.

Welcome to the world Penelope, my precious little niece. I cannot wait to meet you.

With all my love,
Aunt Jenny

It's amazing how many things I photograph for the blog, then take months (and months, and months) to actually post about...

For example: Way back in January, I ordered a card holder from the then brand-new Falconwright's first collection of screen-printed leather goods. When it arrived, I was so blown away by not only the purse itself in all it's chevron-y glory, but also the gorgeous way it was packaged. Before putting this little treat to use I just had to snap a batch of photos, which I am finally (finally!) posting here.

They even screen-printed the mailer, and how great is the handwriting?

From the looks of it, the paper the card holder was wrapped in was used to test out some of the screen patterns...

I absolutely love the layered effect of all the colors and shapes on the packaging... it's a work of art in itself.

Every detail on the purse is perfect, down to the logo printed on the soft suede interior...

It's just the right size to hold my iPod (yes, I am a tech dinosaur, but I still love my "ancient" Nano!) and headphones.

I'm so happy with my treat, and that Falconwright is getting so much well-deserved praise for their creations. I hope to add one of their clutches to my wardrobe sometime soon. Sandi and Danielle, congratulations on your fabulous line!
