sometimes i really lament the fact that we’re all so set in our new high-tech ways. i spotted these beautiful customized cards by gadabout at style court, and ever since, i’ve been dying to go back to my more thoughtful roots, in which i actually sent the occasional card to a friend, through the mail.
each design can be customized with your name or initials, sometimes in the most unusual ways (i love the couch, with your initials printed on the throw pillow!). and the prices are fantastic – $40 for a set of 25 cards and envelopes.
it’s no surprise that the designer, hanna brooks nation, hails from the heart of the deep south…i can just imagine sending one of these sophisticated notes to a friend to invite her over for afternoon tea. you know, in a world in which things like that really happened. they’d also make fantastic thank-you notes, and a perfect gift for a stylish friend’s birthday.
i think we should all start a movement to resurrect handwritten cards…don’t you?
