Live from VGH, Last Edition

Did you get how everything in our spring collection has Mom or the garden in mind? These little novelties are not only adorable but totally functional and earth friendly. Ceramic and concrete plant holders (hint, add a gorgeous pen to the mix), seed storage bags, vintage brass watering cans. We can hardly handle it. Thanks for spending your Saturday night with us. We sound like a broken record, we know it, but we can't wait to see you back in our shop. Stay safe and take care, friends.

It’s @ShortNorthArtsDistrict Virtual Gallery Hop! Wish we were NOT social distancing but we’re together on Facebook and Insta @onpaperohio. Did we mention our spring garden/Mom’s Day collection?

Using bok choy as a printing tool showcases the veggie’s unique thumbprint and pays homage to our amazing resources. $350. Check our featured page for a lovely selection of framed...
