I purchased these super-cute notecards from a local retailer, Sally Mack. Eighty-five cards come to a package, and I bought 3 packages. So I will be using these for a while. They are the perfect size for a quick note to a friend, a kind thought packaged in a lunch box or a note left on someone's pillow. I decided to package 5 of the cards with a bow and send them to some friends. I'm hoping it's a nice "pick me up" for the recipients. The cards are made by efrancespaper.com.
As many of you know, I visited France in June. The first few days of the trip I was in Paris. And I was able to visit a number of stationery stores. It was pure Heaven. During one of my visits to Melodies Graphiques, I picked up this beauty. It's a 100% cotton notepad made by Amatruda (La Carta di Amalfi) in Italy.
The paper is exquisite. Almost too good to write on. I haven't used it yet, because I don't want to blemish it. I love looking at it in a pristine condition.
But the real reason I purchased it is the cover. It's an old map of parts of Paris. I thought it would be a perfect memento to remember the trip.
