Stripe Happy

What is it about stripes anyways? They're so great I'm thinking of dedicating a pinboard to all things stripey and wonderful. Know what else is great? Sweet art deco numbers. I'm mildly obsessed with art deco architecture and type these days. And by mildly obsessed I mean totally completely and consumingly in love. Mhmm.
