New Collection: Original Watercolor Greeting Cards by Autumn Irick

March 30, 2020

I'm super excited to introduce this new collection of original watercolor greeting cards by Autumn Irick! Up until now my shop has consisted of all vintage and second hand items, but since the beginning, I've wanted to explore collaborating with local artists and makers. 

About a month ago I reached out to my Instagram friend, Autumn. Autumn is a fellow vintage seller and multifaceted artist based in San Juan Capistrano, California. I'm always impressed by what she posts on her Instagram feed and we have collaborated on a few giveaways in the past. 

I asked her if she'd be interested in creating a collection of greeting cards for my shop and she was on board right away. I sent her a couple inspiration photos that I loved, and she has hand painted a 20 card collection based on the images I showed her. I'm calling it the "Cactus Collection" and IT IS LOVELY!!!!

There are no prints in this collection. Each 4 x 6 card is a unique work of art, signed by Autumn. She uses ink and watercolor to hand paint each one. They are pretty enough to be framed!

The greeting cards are available for $12.99 each and that includes shipping. If you register for my newsletter you can get 15% off your first order. This "Cactus Collection" was designed exclusively for Mendez Manor but Autumn does accept commission via her Instagram handle @CAheartofgold. You can also contact her via email: autumnirick@yahoo.com.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful collection and find a card that speaks to you! They are perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day and birthdays. Blank inside so that you can fill in your own special message. Your purchase from this collection supports local art production and women in business. Also don't forget that this month and next 50% of our profits will be donated to Coronavirus relief funds and those in need during this time. Thanks for reading! - Nicole Mendez, Curator

This grouping of treasures was inspired by these gorgeous blue & orange ceramic dinner plates I found while sourcing in Colorado last month. I love them! They mix really nicely with natural woven plate chargers, linen napkins, yellow or blue glassware, and both silver and gold accents.
