Elena Deshmukh

Last summer, I met someone at a picnic who told me that she had a friend, Elena Deshmukh, who made cards. Imagine how excited I was when I checked out her website and found this beautiful range. A few months later I met Elena at a trade fair and she was just as lovely as her cards. At the minute they are only available in shops (see stockists here) but there is an online shop coming soon. Her website is one of the prettiest I've seen, with old books, tea cups and black and white postcards as photo props - just my style.

What utterly beautiful stationery. The teacups are helping to suck me in, it has to be said! Much cooler than your average display picture!

Very beautiful and I agree with her it is always so nice to receive a nice card, well designed and in good quality paper, specially if they are handmade!!
