the most covetable handwriting (+ a giveaway)

October 7, 2014

Love Leesie 4

When gorgeously whimsical handwriting and your favorite quotes get together, the result is Love Leesie. (You might remember the lovely penmanship from this post.) Browsing the shop stocked with everything from Charles Bukowski quotes to rap lyrics, it’s hard not do drop a small fortune on a very wordy gallery wall – all written out in that covetable Elise handwriting. I’d try to pick a favorite, but there’s no use. They are kind of like Pokemon in that I’m on a mission to collect them all.

Playing stylist to this set of prints was a real good time. In fact, it was such a good time, i’m sharing the fun. Keep scrolling for a chance to win your own Love Leesie print.

    I would love the ee cummings quote. My parents read that poem to eachother at their wedding in 1975, and so that quote has special meaning to me. I followed Leesie! Thanks for sharing her work.

    Ah, I’m not on instagram but I hope commenting is enough to be in to win … I’d love the Oscar Wilde quote. Since our school trip to Ireland I admire this guy.

    Such a cool idea! I love the Oscar Wilde or the “Do it for the Donut” one on her instagram!

    1. Followed. 2. I love the e e cummings quote. Like Our Way to Eat’s parents, my husband and I read this at our wedding. We are both fans and love “i carry your heart” in particular.

    The “More Issues Than Vogue” is perfection!

    I followed! And…I am obsessed with that Oscar Wilde quote…it’s always been one of my faves! 🙂

    I’m all about the “do you” quote. It’s perfect and maybe the best advice you need.

    I’m dumb and missed this by 30 minutes… but for the record, I’d choose “worry less, smile more” because I’m an overthinker and need the reminder constantly.
