Written Crush



My grandmother wrote me letters every single week until she passed at 99 years old. I have boxes stacked under my bed of her lovely notes. I really enjoy admiring her stationary because they are all very feminine. I've had a crush on Denyse Schmidt Paper Goods for years and have used her Dots & Jots correspondence cards since 2006. Whether I am writing a thank you note or sending a birthday card, I and always get compliments the card's unique and sophisticated look. Do you have favorite stationary?

  7. Aw, that's so cute about your grandma. My great grandma wrote me all the time until she got Alzheimer's :(
    I have been buying random old cards/post cards from the thrift store here and sending those, it's fun :)

  9. That is so sweet that your grandma wrote you a letter every week! How amazing that you'll always have those, Marcie. I have a ton or random Target Thank you notes but I really love my gold monogrammed Crane & Co set. I think it was a gift from Gabe's mom a few years back. Nothing beats a hand-written note!

  10. Oh my gosh. That chocked me up I'm not going to lie!
    My nanas both died at a young age and that's a relationship I'll always wish I had the chance to experience. I'm also obsessed with stationary too... sigh

  13. I am a monogramed Crane girl myself. Although I have been a bit lax on the thank you's since baby number four came a few years ago. I need to be better.
