Popular Metallics

As seen in this post from Style Me Pretty, metallics continue to be popular!  And why not?  A bit of glitter and sparkle has a way of creating sophistication and excitement.  I don't think this trend is going anywhere soon!

From bright, yellow gold to antique gold, from platinum to copper to bronze, I've got the metallic ink to make your calligraphy pop!

The Knot Best of Weddings

What a blessing it is to have been voted one of The Best of Wedding vendors for 2013! Many, many thanks go to all the wonderful brides I had the privilege of working with in 2012. Without your kind reviews, this would not have been possible. I've got the best job in the world, and 'my' brides make my work so fun and rewarding! Thank you!

Episode 2 quote:  Carson

Downton Abbey Quote Carson

Carson--singing as he polished the silver.  (or perhaps Cheerful Charlie?) Good news can do that to you! 

Were you as surprised as I was that Carson was a bit of a gossip and had no difficulty lying?  Still, it was my favorite moment of Episode 2, among many.

Something fun in the New Year

Are you as big a fan of Downton Abbey as I am?

Last night, I snuggled down to watch the first episode of Season 3.  I laughed outloud.  I cheered.  I groaned.  It was great!

There were so many great zingers and one liners that I decided I'd like to have some fun with them.  So Icame up with the idea of sitting down first thing on Monday morning and writing out my favorite quote in calligraphy--not really composing a serious piece of work--just using what I had to hand.  

If I get some more interest, I may start a Facebook page so others can post their quotes.  But in the meantime, I'll post mine here on Scriptorium and on my Pinterest page.

First up is a quote from one of my favorite characters from Downton.
