About: Sepia Smiles, etsy.com friend – (images) Re-Post

(re-post)
One of the best things about blogging is meeting people with similar interests.  Roseanna, owner of Sepia Smiles, is one of those people whose interests and styles we find inspiring.  We’re lucky to have met her through our blogging adventures.

Roseanna’s aesthetic is simple, clean, restrained femininity.  Her pastel color schemes and collection of vintage household items is an elegant interpretation of Anthropologie’s “country chic”.

The Sepia Smiles “look” is apparent in Roseanna’s interior designs, home decor, hand-made stationery and even her website layout


As you know, we, too, love making stationery, lots of white-space in our design layout, vintage items, and many other things Sepia Smiles finds ‘pretty’…

We look forward to offering Sepia Smiles products on the Pretty Pink Ponies site soon.
Nice job, Roseanna!!!

Holiday Gifts (for your tech gadgets)…

When you spend as much time on your laptop and iPhone as I do, they become extensions of yourself, then, sadly, your closest “friends”.

Consequently, I feel compelled to give gifts to my gadget “friends” this holiday…(Well, ok…perhaps these are actually gifts to myself).

In any case, here are some super adorable tech gadget accessories I discovered online.

What’s your laptop wearing today?

prettypinkponies recently met marida at a tradeshow in los angeles.  We love her interesting and wearable designs.

The look is modern, minimal, “clean”.

semi-precious stones with metal…semi-precious stones with leather cords…
…so elegantly bohemian.

tailored, yet laid back.  Just what to wear with your white tee and jeans this summer.

…or your yoga pants…

so zen…

…delicate…

and simply lovely..

 don’t forget to follow our blog via Google Friend Connect for a chance to win one of marida’s pieces!  !
THANKS, MARIDA!!!

We wholeheartedly believe that hand-written notes on elegant stationery is a necessary extravagance…

ponies postage

Older postage stamps that haven’t been cancelled (used) can be combined in value to send mail.  For instance, using vintage postage with regular postage is a great way to add character to your mailings.

Combining postage by theme, color or recipient’s personality and hobbies is a thoughtful gesture which will surely be appreciated.

Choice of notecard design can make a difference, too.  For instance, these watercolor fashion sketches by Christian LaCroix (below) are something you can use to write to your “fashion-forward” friends.

Below is a profound statement on a simple space written using a vintage typewriter (for the non-fluffy types).

Crane’s classic customized stationery is understated which makes it perfect correspondence for new acquaintances and those whose personality you’re not yet sure of.  It’s a bit more formal and has less personality, however, covers a lot of different situations and a ‘must-have’ in your stationery repertoire.

Colorful postcards are fun for writing to children and friends who are kids-at-heart (below).  They’re fun to send as well as to receive as a surprise.

While we love the efficiency technology provides, when connecting with others, everyone appreciates the thoughtful gesture of taking time to put thoughts on paper.  The pen-to-paper medium somehow conveys your message in a “human-way” more accurately than other mediums.

Hand-written notes aren’t always boring.  There are a variety of notecards in the market that suit various needs and personality types.  In the spirit of differentiating yourself, send a thoughtful greeting by mail.

Email and texts have no soul.

happy Friday, everybody!!!  writing to share an option for you this weekend:  New Arctic Fox Pups Arrive at Aquarium of the Pacific

how are these pups relevant to our general topic themes?  um…they’re pretty and wear amazing outfits!!!

Aquarium of the Pacific Artic Wolf Pup4
The Aquarium of the Pacific has welcomed two male six-week-old Arctic Fox pups that are now on view in the Aquarium’s Molina Animal Care Center. The two brothers are part of the Aquarium of the Pacific’s new Arctic & Antarctic: Our Polar Regions in Peril exhibition, which gives the public the opportunity to see polar animals up close while learning about what can be done to protect their habitats.

New Arctic Fox Pups Arrive at Aquarium of the Pacific:

Arctic fox babies are called either pups or kits. A litter usually has about seven kits but may contain up to fifteen. The Arctic fox is an incredibly resilient animal that can live in temperatures as low as -59° F and as warm as temperatures we experience in Southern California. They are found in the Arctic and alpine tundra regions, from coastal Alaska and Greenland to Scandinavia and Russia.
It survives in extreme temperatures thanks to its thick fur, furry soles, short ears, and short muzzle. During the winter months, white phase Arctic fox have white coats that serve as camouflage against the vast stretches of snow and ice in their native Arctic region. When the seasons change, their coats change to a brown or blue-gray appearance that allows them to blend in with the summer’s landscape. Blue phase fox, more common in the species’ southern habitat range, remain charcoal-colored year round. Young of each color phase may occur in the same litter.
These mammals have keen hearing and normally feed mainly on rodents along with birds, and even fish. When prey is scarce in the winter, these foxes often follow polar bears to eat their leftover scraps, sometimes traveling great distances. Their average lifespan in the wild is three to six years. As an adult, an Arctic fox can weigh up to seventeen pounds.
Climate change poses a threat to the Arctic fox, impacting their habitat and food sources. Consequently the International Union for Conservation of Nature has included them on their Red List of Threatened Species and on a list of ten species that are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.”

what’s more ridiculous than seeing a prettypinkpony walking around Larchmont Village talking on the phone using a large red handset?  suggesting you do the same.

something to consider if:

  • you’re concerned about radiation transmission from your cell phone to your head
  • want to draw attention to yourself
  • want to speak on a cordless phone handset connected to your charging blackberry
  • or, any combination of the above..

about $30 dollars – contact me for more info re: “Moshi Moshi”

I adore the simplicity of these cards.
I thought of my beautiful friend, Bridget, after seeing a bright yellow card with a gentle reminder to: “Shine”.
