Good stationery

I bought a set of letterpress cards the other day to send to a friend: blank, with whales on the cover. The drawings are so lovely, however, that I know I’ll have a hard time deciding what to do with the others.

Framed, they would make awesome art to hang in a bathroom or baby’s room. On the other hand, it’s not like I don’t have other friends who’d appreciate receiving them, and I don’t write enough real letters, anyway. Plus, it seems selfish to want to keep them all to myself. So maybe I’ll just frame a few.

Do you hoard your best stationery?

    I do hoard and then I wonder why because I had sending in mind when I bought it.

    But – you don’t frame everything could you let us know if the paper is fountain pen friendly?

      Alas, all my pens are in storage, but perhaps I’ll use the excuse to get a new one… or else I’ll wait till we’ve found a more permanent living situation. Anyway, I’ll keep you posted!

    I do hoard my stationery – partly because I don’t know anyone to write to, and partly because some of it is so nice that I don’t know if I’d ever be able to part with it!
