Announcement   "Encouraging with Words" Letterpress + Calligraphy + Watercolor Sketches

Dear Friend,

Just a few words about this shop: Hillcrest Cottage Farm's studio is in a Southern- style farmhouse overlooking the Ozark Mountains.

With a refurbished vintage Kelsey letterpress, artist B. Kinley(that's me!) enjoys transferring her calligraphy designs into print. She also loves a mix of vintage materials (old dictionary pages, atlas maps, and handwritten letters from years gone by) and lots of color (which she call her watercolor sketches).

Oh, and morning glory vines almost always make an appearance in B. Kinley's work.

Thanks for stopping by!
Your friend,
B

P.S. Occasional vintage items pop up for sale just because...I can't stop collecting.

About

Hillcrest Cottage Blends Encouraging Words with Creativity

Hillcrest Cottage is encouraging words. Through letterpress on a vintage Kelsey Excelsior, calligraphy, and hand lettering, Hillcrest Cottage finds ways to uplift others. The messages are positive and faith-based.

Artist Bev Kinley, the face of Hillcrest Cottage, has been creative all her life. She has tried a little bit of this and that... always exploring and dabbling in artistic endeavors. In October 2013,however, she bought a vintage letter press. With no knowledge of printing, she began her journey to combine her calligraphy and hand lettering with her newfound love of letter press. At last, she found the focus for which she had been searching.

Ironically, Bev is a descendant of Ben Franklin, so she laughingly says, "Ink must be in my genetic code."

P.S. I have a huge love for all things vintage. Occasionally, vintage items will pop up for sale.
