Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

A Note of Thanks

There is almost nothing that I love more than opening my mailbox to find a handwritten note. I take my correspondence seriously and love to write thank you notes. I think that a nice handwritten note is the very least that I can do in appreciation for a gift, sentiment or lovely experience. I carry a few note cards with me in my purse, just in case a moment arises and a card is in order.

One of my dearest friends gave me the best advice, she said to buy cards anytime that you see one that you enjoy, whatever the occasion. As a result of taking her advice, I have accumulated a random mix of cards for every holiday or emotion.

Here are examples of some very nice stationary sets that I enjoy.

* Crane Stationary, Swoozies, Kate Spade, Kate Spade.

I stock up on cards for every occasion, too! :)

Love your blog! There really is nothing better than opening your mailbox to a written letter on beautiful stationary! Which stationary is the one in the middle with the pink flowers? I would love to get that one!

Beautiful idea, you cannot say thank you enough!

One can never go wrong with Crane's either! Especially love the last example. I have a few cards stashed in my car for the exact purpose- would love to keep them in my handbag but worry about smashing them somehow...

Thank you for visiting my blog!!

Things That Inspire said...

I always love a nice folded note with my monogram. For my wedding stationary (or is it stationery?) I had so many monogrammed Crane embossed folded notes that I have only just recently run out, and I got married in 1992! For Christmas last year, my MIL got me some lovely monogrammed note cards in white with the monogram in the most beautiful light blue. Perfection!

Hi Chic Coles! The floral brushstroke cards are from Kate Spade, aren't they whimsical and fabulous?

Hi Southern Aspirations! Crushing the cards is certainly a big concerrn when carrying in the purse, good comment. My solution is to place the cards in a ziplock bag which then goes into my planner. If you haven't already guessed, I happen to carry a rather large purse!

Thank you for getting back to me! I love those cards and am definitely going to get myself some!

When we show gratitude and are thankful..we abundately receive it in return. It is like the old adage says
"You reap what you sow"
I love getting notes and writing them as well. We all need to keep up this lost art!
