Every year, our city magazine, Philadelphia Magazine puts out their list of the Best of Philly...from restaurants to spas to everything in between. And every year, I pour through every page and see who has been deemed the latest and greatest. To my surprise (and delight!) my design studio was named Best of Philly this year for invitations and announcements! I had no idea and was fooled by the Philly Magazine writer I met pretending to write a story for another issue. Anyway, just wanted to say thank you to all the editors of Philadelphia Magazine for the inclusion in this year's issue. I am truly honored.

My silver woodcut floral notebook {bottom right} is featured in the new Fall/Winter 08 issue of Philadelphia Wedding! I wanted to share this spread with you all because it's got to be one of my favorite stories...all about favors that are made in Philadelphia or by Philadelphia designers and the spread is just so pretty...even mini soft pretzels in little paper bags {not shown here}. A couple of my Philly favorites, Bird & Banner and Something's Hiding in Here are also part of the story...love it.

Thanks Philadelphia Inquirer!

This Sunday, The Philadelphia Inquirer highlighted an article within its Image Section called, "Add to Favorites". And, yours truly is one of the five bloggers being featured. Yikes! Here's a link to the article version, which will be viewable to non-subscribers only for a few days. Huge thanks to Dan Rubin of Blinq for his very kind words and to Eric Mencher for the photos!
