Last year I sent 52 postcards as part of my 24 Before 25 birthday list. I love snail mail and even when I’m only ever expecting bills, I still get a little thrill of anticipation before checking the post box. So I’m a big fan of the cards from Ma and Grandy, a boutique home wares and paper goods company from the lovely Natala.
I got a Type Set of cards last year and I loved handing out pretty cards to my friends. Now I only got three left and I don’t want to use them because they are doubling as art on my desk! But now you can also buy Ma and Grandy prints, like this one below. I have the card version of this one but need to get myself the real print.
And this one, for the good looking chap in my life.
A set or two is the perfect addition to your stationery collection but it’s also makes such a lovely gift. I remember reading somewhere that giving a pack of thank you cards is a great gift for newlyweds or new parents, who mostly likely need and want to send out cards but probably haven’t had a chance to actually get organised.
