Like the daffodil and hyacinth, the shop is blooming with delights. Mother's Day is just a couple weeks away, so we thought we'd let you know a bit about our annual and perennial favorites.
Two of our most recent jewelry arrivals are textile-based, achieving a bold look with delicate materials. Bracelets, necklaces and pendants in black and metallic European couture lace are light as air and lovely as oh la la. If mom loves color, necklaces of vibrant red and sweet pastel silk polka dots offer dramatic statements that hail from Argentina where they are handcrafted.
At On Paper, we're fond of gifts with meaning. Our bronze and silver talisman pendants are imprints of antique seals chosen for their symbolism, such as the Winged Heart
, which signifies "never look back" or the Stag
representing peace and trusted instincts. And what's not to love about wax seals (which are also best sellers).
Locally made, personalized family necklaces with hand-stamped silver charms (for initials, names and dates) combine with birthstone rondelle and briolette beads are a wonderful way to remind mom of the people who adore her. And, because they are made near the shop, even procrastinators can have a beautiful custom-made gift to give.
On Paper is purveyor fine stationery. If your mom, grandma, wife, or aunt writes letters (or she'd like to), we have a fantastic selection that includes handmade Italian letter sheets, fun floral note cards and monogram stationery. While time is of the essence to order personalized sets, we have certificates to inform your recipient that something has been ordered for her.
We also feature some truly scrumptious fragrances. Eau my, are they devine! We've got your floral, fresh, sweet and earthy bases covered in perfumes, lotions and bubble bath. Our personal favorites include Tokyo Milk Dark in "Bulletproof," Library of Flower's "Root" and "True Vanilla" and Lollia's "Wish." Handily enough, just for Mother's Day, On Paper is offering Tokyo Milk gift sets (one of which includes a rose print parasol. A parasol!) in "Gin and Rosewater" and "Honey and the Moon."
It's a beautiful spring day and we've got the door propped open. Come on in and get ready to celebrate Mom.
