5 WAYS TO USE OUR PAPER

by Bonnie Kaye Studio

By Bonnie Kay Whitfield of Bonnie Kay Studio

I am a total paper person.  I could touch it, smell it, and find ways to hoard it all day long.  When I started hand printing paper, folks would tell me that it was just too pretty to use.  Nonsense!  Life is too darn short (+ weird, thanks Covid) to let things we love sit on a shelf or in a closet.  

But I get it.  You probably also want to make sure you get the most bang for your buck these days.  So here are my favorite tips + uses for our oh-so-gorgeous paper (yeah, I'm not biased at all!).

1 / Jazz up your meal in the prettiest way possible + use our paper rolls as a table runner.  Bonus: no stress if the wine spills!

 2 / Get creative with your next table setting, and use our paper for name cards, plate chargers, or table decor.  It's a great way to use up any paper scraps.

3 / Spend some time cleaning out + tidying your drawers as you transition into the new season. Our paper works great as easy drawer liners + is sure to make you smile that next time you pull the handle.  

 
4 / Get crafty with party decor + fold, paste, staple, decoupage, you-name-it your heart out.  It's a strange time, but we still have so many reasons to celebrate.

5 / Wrap up your gifts, both big + small, with our paper rolls.  It's amazing how taking the time to wrap a present truly elevates the sentiment.  

You can find our current available selection of hand printed paper here.

Creative and Thoughtful Gifts We Love To Give
Creative and Thoughtful Gifts We Love To Give

by Andrea Hurt

So much heart and talent is poured into each handmade item we sell. We wish everyone could see the excitement and pride on the faces of our local makers and artists when they deliver their imaginative creations to the gallery. It’s even better when a customer is in the store to add to our loud oooohhs and ahhhhs. We’re also pretty thrilled and noisy when we open packages from our other small-shop vendors, who send us their creative goodness from Denmark, Belgium, Morocco, Colorado, California or nearby towns in North Carolina. It’s kind of Christmas every day at 3oak.

Pussy Willow - the harbinger of spring in real life, myth and tradition
Pussy Willow - the harbinger of spring in real life, myth and tradition

by Geraldine Dinkins

The Pussy Willow or “Salix Discolor” to use its proper botanical genus, is easily overlooked for its lack of showy colors, petals and fragrance, nevertheless it has its briefest of moment in the pale spring light just as winter recedes when it distinguishes itself as the earliest flower of spring, announcing the seasonal return of natural bounties with tiny fur-covered buds along its willow-long, sculptural stems.
