In the age-old battle of nature versus nurture, you root for both. Unless you mean your wilted window box. (Your violets have a better chance of surviving when you go away for vacation.)
Green your thumb is not. But you do foster a fondness for beautiful design, so you’ll love handmade floral-motif stationery, invites, and announcements from Satsuma Press.
Portland-based designer Lynn Russell starts with drawings inspired by Japanese textiles, summery colors, and open spaces, then transfers the blueprints to printing plates, creating crisp, letterpress impressions on luxurious pearl- and ivory-colored paper.
Spruce up your thank you’s with cobalt blue hydrangeas, scrawl a quick note on cards with tangerine-tinged ginkgo leaves, or announce your next soiree with whispering dandelions.
Whether you go ready-made or enlist Russell for custom work, you’ll have a stack of lush, pretty plants — no need for watering.
Just the kind of nature you can nurture.
