Timeless pieces from The Old Red Hen.
I design, make paper goods, and live in Seattle. One Fine Dae shares the many lovely things that I adore. I'm also a fan of Polaroids, Scrabble, classic movies, vintage, and sailboats. And Charlie Brown is my goofy little companion and unofficial paper shredder.
And also read emails. So say hello, I'd love to hear from you.

I've been coveting these handmade framed hearts by Sarah & Bendrix for a long time. So gorgeous.
I've been working on some new, love-themed cards lately. The first one to come out is this falling for you card. Simple, sweet, and subtle, it's perfect to give on Valentine's Day, or any day.

I've been looking forward to this 3-day weekend all week. Especially because I have not had MLK Jr. Day off since school. And the fact that everything I have to do needs to be finished this weekend.
But before I sign off, here are a few links that I found to be informative, entertaining, and OMG seriously?
Did you know that there's such a thing as National Rubber Ducky Day? On January 13th (which was yesterday). So cute and awesome right?
There really is a niche for everything: Sea Captain Date. (Also from Devon.)
That's it! Have a fabulous weekend guys.
Exciting news! My friend Angie of noodle 'n thread recently finally opened her first online shop and I couldn't be more happy for the girl. Her shop includes adorable hair and paper accessories that all center around her philosophy of simplicity and light. Very fitting if you ask me. You can learn more about Angie and her work through her web site, also just launched.
So glad to have another friend close to home to share the exciting world of handmade goods with. Way to go, Angie!
Blue Valentine, one of the many movies I want to watch this year.

Hi y'all. Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.
As for me (and probably many other Seattleites alike), the most exciting thing that happened this last weekend was the game between the Seahawks and the Saints. I'm usually not one to watch football, but Saturday's game was one of the most exciting sporting events I've ever seen on TV. I was seriously screaming and jumping as Lynch bulldozed his way down the end zone.
Don't know what I'm talking about? Here's what you missed.
And even if you aren't a Seahawks fan, or don't care for football, you have to admit, that touchdown was pretty damn awesome. But if you need more convincing, how about seeing it set to the Super Mario Bros. tune?

I was chatting with the lovely Angie not too long ago, and we both agreed that we only enjoy winter in Seattle during the holidays. After all the hustle and bustle, the cold and wet weather just becomes gloomy and sad. (Sorry Seattle, but 'tis true ya know.) Therefore, we hope that summer weather will come super early this year, because we were jaded in 2010.
Speaking of summer (I know, winter just started Linda, what are you thinking?!), wouldn't lounging around on these gorgeous, handmade, vintage deckchairs and footstools by Gallant & Jones be awesome? I've never really cared too much for lawn/deckchairs before, but these guys just look so handsome, and they really make me miss warm weather.
And by early, I'm crossing my fingers for May-ish, because sometimes summer weather doesn't hit us until early/mid July.

Ross: You were my first kiss with Rachel?!
Monica: You were my first kiss EVER?!?!
Chandler: What did I marry into???!!
There's nothing like catching re-runs of Friends on late-night TV.
Came across these Script & Seal posters, and I just love the 1970s quality to them. Not to mention their messages are so indicative of the new year. I also like this and this. Check out the web site for more great work from these guys.

So far in 2011, I found out that...
While the rest of the city is still asleep, Chinatown in Seattle is extremely busy during New Year's morning. (I wonder if this is the same elsewhere?)
My mom makes better American food than me. (Before, it was just Asian food.)
You can have a losing record and still be champs.
Hmm...looks like I'll be learning a lot of interesting things this year.
