The Wayzgoose.

On Saturday, I attended my first Wayzgoose at the School of Visual Concepts here in Seattle. Oh my goodness, it was a letterpress geek's dream. So, so fun. The hubbers and I particularly enjoyed watching the Steamroller Smackdown. It's exactly as it sounds. A giant steamroller was driven across oversized printing plates to create fairly large posters. Can't wait until next year! Steamroller evidence follows below:

Giant plates are inked up.

Paper is laid across the plates.

The steamroller does its business.

Again with the business.

The print is removed from the plate.

Posters are hung from the school's balconies to dry.

Lovely little presses in the print shop.

A rad set of prints on display in the shop. I want them in our kitchen!

Cake love.

There is very little more satisfying than perusing cakes! Here are some of my favorites as of late. Be sure to check out this Brooklyn Bride post for more fab ideas.

Etsy find: Props.

Since it's Friday, I can't think of a better time for a fun Etsy find! Little Retreats sells photo booth props to sass up any wedding or party. I particularly love the glasses and mustache combo. Think I'm going to find a way to work them into this year's holiday party... Have a great weekend!

I'm back!

Thank you all for being so patient as I was traveling abroad. I spent five weeks in Europe, 10 days of which were spent with my husband by my side. The journey was incredibly inspiring. But, I'm happy to be back and looking forward to firing up the press again.

On that note, the Etsy store is open for business once again. Drop in and say hello!
