Bumble & Sweet
A note from Melinda:
I have long had a love of all things vintage. It's something about the histories and stories they tell; whether it be the 1940's rotary phone that once belonged my grandmother, and now sits in my studio, or the old magazine pages and office ephemera that now reside within a collage or a handmade book. I am drawn to those things that define the look and feel of a particular era during my lifetime and before. Pair that with the fact that I am inherently an organizer of information and you'll understand my love of collage.
I am also a big believer in the connections that grow stronger through the handwritten note. And, let's be honest, who doesn't love to receive a little "snail mail" every now and then - especially when it's a handwritten card. I created Bumble & Sweet to share my passion with others, and maybe meet a few kindred spirits along the way.
I am living and loving life in Durham, NC with my husband Nathan Rittenhouse and our cat Rollo. Our Bumble is no longer with us, but he remains in our hearts always.
