Many apologies for the lateness of this Treasury post, my dears. I've been in Florida for the past two days, visiting with my family and celebrating my grandmother's 90th birthday! I haven't forgotten about you, though, and I have some lovely bits and pieces to share. So let's get to it, shall we?
First up, something you may have seen pinging around the blogosphere recently: the funny, pretty, smart new collection of graphics depicting the differences between two of my very favorite places. It's called Paris vs. New York, and it is awesome. Bagel/baguette, Carrie/Amelie...the contrasts go on from there. Add this one to your RSS feed for a guaranteed smile every single day.
Next up, some more graphic design wonder. Daily Drop Cap is a fantastic series of gorgeously designed capital letters - just perfect for kicking off a blog post - from the typographer Jessica Hische. Jessica stopped posting caps for a while, which made me sad, but she is now back on the job, which makes me happy. Her latest "S," which appears as a snaking spiral of cigarette smoke, is pretty amazeballs.
Last, a little something for the wishlist: black geode drop earrings designed by Margaret Elizabeth. I think these would be the perfect go-to earring for the winter. A little sparkly, but not too, and a little dramatic, but not too. I love these in ways inappropriate and lustful, and I'm not sure how long I can hold out and keep myself from buying them. I'll keep you posted.
