It usually doesn't, of course. Bank statements and junk mail, mostly, with the occasional magazine for one of the boys.
(They always turn to the back to read the jokes first. Knock knock. Who's there? Billy. Billy who? Billy the goat, that's who!)
But sometimes there's a card or a letter just for me, all my very own, from a dear loved one, and it about makes my entire month.
I know that if I get that excited about a handwritten letter, chances are good others enjoy them too. As such, I'm always on the lookout for lovely artisan cards to keep stashed away, ready to pull out for whomever might need a little something in the mail. I'm always scooping them up at craft shows or slipping them into my cart on Etsy.
I was excited, then, to see this beautiful new Millefiori card collection from Peace, Beauty, and Joy. The notecards, featuring turtles, geckos, frogs, and chameleons, are even more striking in person than in their Etsy shop.
The professionally-printed cards are rich in colour and smooth to the touch. The detail on the Millefiori patterns is incredible. I love it.
I'm a big fan of blank cards, perfect for any occasion or no occasion at all. Personalization is available, though, for one line on the front of the card and up to ten lines on the inside. The high-quality cards are lovely to write on and come beautifully packaged.
The boy immediately asked for one of his own as soon as he saw them, eager to write a note to his grandparents. The cards held up beautifully to the marker - his chosen writing implement for the day - without bleeding or showing through the back of the card. Not that you're likely to write your own notecards in marker. Still. Good to know, right?
