You might’ve guessed already, buuut we’re all about that calligraphy. Those romantic loops and curls just sweeping from one letter to the next… what better way to send a letter or make an announcement? As it turns out, the art of calligraphy is not just for artists alone, anyone can give it a go (but a good teacher helps). Laura Hooper Calligraphy shares her talents with people all around the US and even in Toronto, and recently put on a lovely workshop just outside of Austin, designed by Katy of Without Wax, Katy.

Thanks to Shalyn Nelson of Love, The Nelsons for the photo recap:

Katy says, The Union on Eighth is a stunner all on its own—no question about it. But when it just so happens to be that time of year when both coral charm peonies and café au lait dahlias are in season, it makes for a wake-me-up-I-must-be-dreaming environment that you just have to see for yourself! 100% agreed!
