Blue Barnhouse: Greetings with Shazam!

I like it when eco-vendors let me know about themselves (and you can too, just email me at talk at ecochick dot ca!) I especially like it when they let me know about themselves on days when I'm really tired and jet lagged. And I especially especially like it when they let me know about themselves and they're as fun and cool as Blue Barnhouse.

Gorgeous handpressed cards, printed on 100% recycled cardstock on an antique press, with illustrations salvaged from old childhood favourite books such as Alice in Wonderland or The Wizard of Oz. Oh, so pretty and dainty. Except they are so, so awesomely.. not. I must have laughed out loud 20 times while browsing this website - they're that good. Politically incorrect, sprinkled liberally with splendidly foul language, these cards provide a daintily messy commentary on life for our cynical age. I am sure that every one of us can find a friend for whom these cards would be completely perfect. And let's just say I've found my Christmas Cards early this year.

They do ship to Canada, and plenty of vendors carry the cards ... keep your eye out. These splendid cards are not to be missed.
