Snail Mail

June was a whirlwind of activity here, but now that two of my children are safely off at camp for the next three weeks, things are significantly quieter.  Which is not to say that I don't miss them... I do!  In fact, every morning I write them each a letter, every day.  One letter, times two for three weeks is a lot of letter writing!  Exactly the excuse I needed to stockpile some of my favorite stationery.  The top cards, from John Robshaw, are my newest addition and no doubt will be my daughters' favorites!  I also can't get enough of the cards and paper from both Mr. Boddington and Kate Spade.  As for my pens, I'm using the adorable ones from Jonathan Adler that we carry here at zhush.com.  Each daughter got one tucked into her trunk as well...can't wait to get my first letter from the girls!

  7. How sweet of you to write each day and such a lovely way to put pen to paper. There's not much that I love more than lovely note cards... and the space and time to write down my thoughts and send them on to someone I'm thinking about.

  16. So cute!! I just got my first letter from my daughter at camp yesterday. It's her first year so I was thrilled to hear she loves it. She would love the Robshaw. Right now her favorites are the photo cards with dogs doing silly things.

  17. LOVE the stationery! I remember getting letters from my mom when I was at camp as a child. We had to sing a song in front of everyone in order to get our mail. Hope your kids are having a great time!

  18. Is there anything better then getting something not bill related or junk related in the mail????? I think not!

  19. I love these. I think correspondence by hand is such a lost art. My brother is joining the Navy soon and I plan on writing him frequently (maybe not on animal stationary,though, haha).

  31. Oh, this is really, really good stuff!!!! You know I love my stationery, but I need to get some fresh, fun things to use to write my oldest, who leaves at the end of July for 2.5 weeks!

    The John Robshaw is beyond! Love Kate and Mr Boddington, too! And, I got a JA pen for my bday!!! Makes me think of you.
