Sending you ...


Nothing ever beats a handwritten love letter. On Valentine's Day, or especially when it's unexpected. Seeing the message in someone's own handwriting, no matter what it looks like, makes it feel much more heartfelt. I love the idea of spreading your secret message over a few days with a series of postcards. It'd be a fun way to surprise them, and keep them guessing...


While in most cases, it's a little late for 'snail-mail', there's definitely still opportunity to send a note to your special someone, if not in person, then with these cute little e-cards from Kate Spade -such a fun little tradition I've come to look forward to from Kate every year. Each is designed by an artist friend of the brand, there's a whole gallery from which to select the right one for your special someone.

So agree, there's nothing like a hand written note- thank goodness my nana still does them...she's the only one that does and I just love getting her letters in the mail. The Kate Spade selection is brilliant!

Christine - what treasures! I hope you keep them! (I have a box filled with all my personal notes, it's true these days they are getting to be few and far between...)

Thanks Paper Heart Girl! xo

People should really just SEND them.
It's not that hard and it makes everyone so happy!

I find that keeping stamps on hand eliminates half the work.

So true. It's an art form that is so dear to my heart.

I couldn't agree more! There is nothing like a handwritten note—and these are SO so pretty... I would love to purchase them. Thanks, Sharalee :)

Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful weekend, xoxo

SH - you are so good at this my friend! And that's a great tip - keeping stamps on hand makes it so much easier.

Daniella - you are most welcome ! xo

Sarah - no need to buy them, they're free to send online :)

Agreed -- no one gets enough good snail mail these days and nothing is better than opening your mailbox to a pretty, handwritten note :)
