calling cards!

Sorry to be MIA today but I have been traveling (my least favorite thing) and just arrived to my parents home in Chicago, where I will be for the next week. When I arrived home I found a lovely little surprise--letterpress calling cards and a cute little canary case for them (which goes perfectly with the navy blue type!)

Sorry for the poor photo (they are from my iphone). I promise to be back in full posting force tomorrow! In the meantime, do you have calling cards? Ok, off to peruse the lovely stack of magazines stacked by my bed!

What a sweet little surprise! They are perfect. Glad to hear you made it safely-I too hate flying. I had a panic attack on the way to Vegas because we hit some really bad turbulence. It was not pretty. Have a wonderful time visiting with your family!

Love it! So perfect for you.

Someone gave me calling cards when I was born with a sweet Holly Hobby floral print on them and I still have a few. They make such a sweet little statement and are so uncommon these days.
