Gold House Paper + Press

The other day, Jacob asked to write a letter. He got out his paper and pen, an envelope and asked where the stamps were. I was really surprised because I realized, I’d never talked to him about “real mail”. He’d gotten the idea from watching a youtube video of mail-trucks (of course). I initially felt bad that youtube had done my job, but it got me thinking. When was the last time I sent snail mail? Just wrote a letter, on pretty paper, stamped it and sent it on it’s way? I couldn’t remember. When I was younger, I had a stationary set. A box with compartments for stationary, envelopes, pens, stamps and stickers and I remember feeling so inspired every time I opened it and put pen to paper.

I’m not good with set challenges, hence why  none of my New Year’s challenges made it through April, but I’ve decided to handwrite more letters, and to teach my boys to do the same. I love the digital age we live in, it’s a convenience that is much needed sometimes, but some of my most treasured items, are the handwritten notes and letters I’ve saved and tucked away in my memory box.


It’s been a while since I’ve done a feature post or shared any of my favorite online shops with you, but today I wanted to tell you about one of my new favorite shops: Gold House Paper + Press.

It’s chock-full of some of the cutest stationary sets, cards, letterpress and gifts and has new products popping up all the time.

Here are some of my favorites:

I’ve got a giveaway in the works and will be posting about that as soon as I can. In the  mean time, you can follow the shop on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook  for shop updates and general info.

Isn’t it nice to check the mailbox and see a personal letter mixed in with the bills and junk mail? Even better when it’s written on an adorable notecard or stationary.

Veterinary medicine

Veterinary medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in non-human animals. The scope of veterinary medicine is wide, covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species.

Veterinary medicine is widely practiced, both with and without professional supervision. Professional care is most often led by a veterinary physician (also known as a vet, veterinary surgeon or veterinarian), but also by paraveterinary workers such as veterinary nurses or technicians. This can be augmented by other paraprofessionals with specific specialisms such as animal physiotherapy or dentistry, and species relevant roles such as farriers.

Veterinary science

Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic disease (infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans), food safety, and indirectly through human applications from basic medical research. They also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
