lovely and local : morris & essex

I don't think I shared with you all of the handmade goodness I got for christmas yet. A good part of my loot came from Morris & Essex. I first discovered them while vending at Picnic Portland this past summer. I fell in love with all of her pieces making it hard to pick just one item. In the end I settled for some screenprinted undies {shown below} and kept a business card so I knew where to return to make my holiday wish list. 

This moth & butterfly shirt has become a fast favorite. It is so comfortable, rusty orange and adorned with insects. 
 
These little birds are so sweet. Ones I would love to feed breadcrumbs to in the city. Now if only the weather were more suitable for the shirt...
I have yet to acquire this shirt {hint: x-small please!}. I love how Morris & Essex re-visits a theme. She obviously loves nature but doesn't bore us with the same images. She changes the silhouette, adds or detracts detail and never inundates us with the same palette. 

If you are looking for some cards to send to loved ones Morris & Essex has a website full of handprinted paper goodness. 


happy thursday!
