I shared over the weekend that I will be hosting an intimate but festive (!) dinner party for Mr. Magpie’s fortieth in two weeks. This has led me down quite the enjoyable shopping rabbit hole. I thought I’d share some absolutely fabulous finds, whether or not you are hosting a fiesta! These will banish the winter blahs instantly, whether you’re eating at home with your significant other or hosting a small Galentine’s affair or just stocking the linen closet!

P.S. Stranger rabbit hole I’ve gone down: I actually bought myself a calligraphy set and calligraphy book. I have always wanted to learn and am curious how far I can get self-study style. Going to practice and try to calligraphy the placecards at Mr. Magpie’s birthday!

P.P.S. Home office refresh.

P.P.P.S. Attention is a form of love.

  1. This is timely, as I just got back into my calligraphy/hand lettering hobby over the holiday break, after neglecting it for a while. When my daughter was an infant I remember one of the first solo outings I did was to go to a brush lettering class with a friend — and it was so soul-nourishing. Have fun with your pens!

    1. Thank you! So fun that you took a class with a friend. Actually didn’t know they existed…might follow suit! Merci!

  2. Hi! I will absolutely keep you posted! It’s funny you asked that because I initially had two books in my cart, one on hand lettering and one on calligraphy. At the end of the day, it was just an aesthetic thing. I really love the traditional script, and imagined myself using it on gift tags, placecards, etc. We’ll see how it goes — if I’m passable, maybe I’ll eventually learn to do more of the brush/hand-lettering as well!

  3. Love the idea of learning calligraphy! That has been on my to-do list for awhile. Please share how you like the book and supplies. Place cards seem like the perfect first project, especially for an intimate dinner soiree.

    I have considered trying hand lettering instead since I think I would likely find more uses for it. How did you decide on traditional calligraphy?

    1. Hi Melinda! If I may chime in with my 2 cents… I find that hand lettering feels more “forgiving” to me especially while learning it. My opinion is different from Jen’s here — while you could still make hand lettering more traditional in style, I found myself drawn to the imperfection of hand lettering and its sometimes whimsical style.
