Modern Calligraphy: The Modern Country Craft You'll LOVE!!

I have a new obsession. I say that as though it's a recent fad but I've been crazy about it for months now. What is it?

Modern Calligraphy...
{swoon}

Modern Calligraphy: The Modern Country Craft You'll LOVE!!

If you haven't heard the name itself, you will most definitely have seen Modern Calligraphy at a wedding near you. This gorgeousness gets everywhere! Just take a look at some of these examples and tell me that you're resisting falling in love....

And the very best news of all? It's totally doable! This isn't a craft that you have to stand back and watch the experts at work. 

Yes, it takes time, yes, it takes a little equipment but you and I can do it!
{And, anyway, since when was buying stationary a bad thing?!!}

In December, I decided I was going to set to it and learn Modern Calligraphy for myself. Then, unexpectedly, for Christmas, I got lots of beautiful bits and pieces to help me on my way, which I've added to over the past two months. Some bits were UH-maaaazing, others not so much.

Modern Country Favourites: Picture Britain

I came across a new company recently that I love, Picture Britain....I adore both the concept and the products themselves. I'm very proud of being British and, particularly at the moment, I think any opportunity to remind ourselves what a beautiful country we live in is not to be overlooked.

The first thing you'll see when you go to Picture Britain's website is the following words: Beautifully Photographed, Beautifully Framed. I love the idea of turning the stunning views of around Britain, that many of us are so lucky to experience, into works of art. 


Picture Britain pride themselves on their production process, using only the very best materials: high pigment inks, thick mounts, solid hardwood frames, heavy papers.


Drawing from a group of exceptional photographers from accross the country, Picture Britain is able to offer an astonishing variety of photos, from the urban....

to the rural....

to the wild.....

You may recognise some of the scenes....

....but others will be new visual treats...

I chose Dark Hedges in the largest size:

I've always had a secret thrill passing under tunnels made by trees.....we call them Fairy Tunnels in our family. I can't imagine a better image of such a tunnel. It looks somehow enchanted, eerie and inviting all at once. This is definitely to be treasured.


Every part of the picture oozes quality. Take a look and see which you'd choose...
