Bring Back the Blue: Hurricane Relief from giddy paperie

So, today I was planning to kick off this post with a peek at the gorgeous 2020 calendar now available for pre-sale from giddy paperie. This beguiling year-long journey is sure to sell well as as always, and Leslie sent me several shots this past weekend as she patiently waited out Hurricane Dorian in her Winter Park, Florida, home.

But then, yesterday she emailed me with yet another new release, this one far more urgent. Meet the Bring Back the Blue Bahama Relief mug, adorned with Leslie’s signature watercolors in a tropical-esque chinoiserie.

These mugs are $20, with ALL proceeds going directly to help the families on Marsh Harbor on Elbow Cay in the Bahamas. “I was just there in May, and my heart aches for the locals and my friends who have lost their homes,” Leslie told me. “People literally have nothing and the airport is under five feet of water.” 

So as you are pick up a mug or two, don’t miss out Leslie’s new 2020 calendar, Blue & White Love. It’s the result of a collab with The Enchanted Home — and it will definitely infuse any space with a little design magic! I love discovering and appreciating each little vignette as the year unfolds. There is so much detail and love infused into each sweet scene.

I’m so impressed not just with Leslie’s dynamic vision of the year ahead, but that she was able to unveil a cause-related creation so quickly. So head on over to giddy paperie and help her write the biggest check possible!
