I am grateful for the visits in this space

a vintage book shared by a friend inspires me

to encourage the lost art of note writing

something completely different here

The lost art of note writing...yes! My daughter and I owned a handmade paper notecard company we called "TouchNotes"...in an attempt to encourage handwritten notes.
It's a good thing. :)
Have a great rest of the week,
Becky

oh, this is so unique.
Note writing is something I do miss. Doing and receiving.

oh so TRUE! how much more happy i am when i find a note in the mailbox nestled amongst the bills & catalogs.

and i love those illustrations - such innocence.

Oh how brave and strong to actually use a vintage book for art. I can't quite bring myself to do that - yet. Nice spring look today!

Gayle said...

Oh, how I love the art in vintage books. What a wonderful use for it!

I do love the simple message attached this note and I am big fan of vintage book art, nice combination.
I also wanted to thank you for the beautiful postcard I recieved from you through sperygirl's postcard swap. It is clipped up in my art space I love looking at it.

I actually do like note writing and make my own little photo notecards sometimes. Notes are so less daunting than letters. I may never write another actual letter since email exists but notes I can handle.

Kimmie said...

The old "readers" are the very best :)
What a wonderful "note" waiting to be written upon - snail mail - it is some of the very best mail there is :)
