I am obsessed with paper goods. I tell people I have an under-the-bed tupperware container full of stationery and cards. Truth be told, my grandmother’s entire three-drawer hope chest is stuffed with stationery that I have collected over the years.
The cards pictured at the right were given to me by my dear Aunt for Christmas…at least 20 YEARS ago. My sister received a matching set the same year.
This fall, I asked the kind ladies at The Inviting Place in Tulsa if we could have them reproduced for my sister – with her married name. She needed professional stationery for sending thank you notes. I thought these would perfectly fit the bill – and they do!
Now, my niece wants a pen pal. Preferably in Europe. Crazy Aunt Me in NYC will just have to do for now.
I bought each of us a set of this amazing airmail stationery. I picked up our sets at one of my favorite gift shops in Austin, Mercury Design Studio. I adore this store – you can always find something fantastic for anyone, at any price point. If you are interested in this stationery, you can find a store near you that carries Kikkerland Design selections here.
I plan on writing more letters this year – mainly because it makes me feel good…but also so I can make more space in my hope chest for updating my stationery collection!
Now I need to improve my penmanship!
