I want to show you my lovely new print from Cartolina, with an image of the Eiffel Tower reproduced from a Victorian postcard. Here it is after I framed it…
People who know me probably know how much I love Paris, so how could I resist this… c’est tres jolie, non?
If you aren’t already familiar with Cartolina, allow me to introduce you! Based in Nelson, BC, Fiona Richards designs lovely, environmentally-friendly stationery featuring vintage images. As described on Cartolina’s web site, it’s a “curiously unique collection of stationery with a fresh modern twist.” iPhone users – Cartolina also has an app that you can can use it to text or email short, but very sweet messages. I love it! Download it from the iTunes App Store and you can send pretty messages too…
I also have a second print…. and decided it would be fun to share, so I’m happy to announce a Cartolina giveaway!
Here’s the print you could win:

I love the colours in this one. The background is from an 18th century engraving, and the carved wood cartouche was painted by Fiona’s partner, illustrator Doug Jones (who happens to be my cousin). The image is printed on 10″ x 13 1/4″, printed on 11″ x 17″ paper, and it will be rolled and mailed in a sturdy box. As an extra surprise, Fiona is generously providing some cards as well. That’s a lovely package that will be going out to somebody…. will it be you?
To enter: just visit Cartolina – the web site, the blog or the Etsy shop, then come back here and leave a comment, telling me about something you saw there that you liked. One lucky winner will be chosen by draw and announced on Tuesday, March 22nd!
