tag team tompkins letterpress prints

these four prints are making me happy today.

i am one to hold onto frame-able pretties because framing can be terribly expensive. i store them somewhere safe and forget all about them, however this bare wall was just hoping for something lovely and letterpressed. so i unearthed my stash of happiness. and i scored some frames on sale last weekend. dan helped me hang them just right. he is a pro.

the tag team tompkins prints caught my eye on miranda's blog awhile back and i scooped them up while they were hot. i love them for at least five reasons: they are beautifully hand-lettered and then letterpressed by a mother / daughter team (cute, right!?). the featured quotes are taken from revered writers that i love. their etsy shop has a plethora to choose from (all quotes that make me smile), it is hard picking favorites. the quirky drawings have old fashioned charm and a twist of modern flair. the silhouettes are simple and sweet and a style all their own. the letterpress prints are excellently priced. no one else i know has them hanging on their walls.  thank you tag team tompkins (their business cards are cute too)! 

browse their etsy print shop.

p.s. readers usually ask about these pillows, so for the record, the paisley pillow is from alice lane home and the ruffly one is by susan from freshly picked.

p.p.s read more about making a house a home with unique artwork over on michelle's blog today. thank you for featuring one of my ideas!

I love them, Marta. They look beautiful in your home.

I bought a couple Halloween prints from them after Miranda's post too. They are beautiful and help with my very scarce stash of Halloween decor. I can't wait to use them for more than a week next year!

Yay! I'm so glad you posted this. I've been wondering which ones you snatched up. They look absolutely perfect.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate getting to see how our Etsy customers display our pieces. It's like reading the last page of a really good book. Thank you so much for sharing!

Oh, those are fabulous! I've just been browsing their shop on etsy and I absolutely love the Dickens quote about keeping Christmas in your heart all year. I want it!

These caught my eye first thing when I came to drop Little Guy off today. LOVE THEM! So fun.

Thanks for sharing! I just had to buy the Charles Dickens Christmas one.

1. the tompkins prints are to die for. so darling! and so you. i just love a set of frames, all in a row.
2. i dream about that ruffly pillow.
3. i want to live on your couch. (we are sadly in need of a couch that says "come slouch and kick back" instead of "come and sit like a prim, proper lady with perfect posture.")
4. benji's hammering block is bringing back a flood of memories...
