A Place to Write

Even when e-mail is king, writing thank-you notes, greeting cards or simply a love note, gives me a personal way to keep in touch with friends and family. A beautiful desk is the perfect place for putting pen to paper.

Most people, myself included, send paper cards for Christmas, and then use electronic communications—e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, texts—for the little things the rest of the year: thank-yous, congratulations and birthdays.



Blank notes reflecting my passions: wine, cooking and gardening

From now on, I've decided to send handwritten note cards for the special little occasions and thank-yous throughout the year.  A handwritten card sent just to say thanks or I'm thinking of you, will certainly be remembered more than most Christmas cards.
