Handwritten Notes and Floral Prints

Do you have a pattern that you're especially drawn to, over and over again? Floral patterns are my weakness. Especially the patterns with a modern feel or florals on a stark white or a dark background (still love wearing these jeans!).

I subscribe to the idea that every room should have a few touches of living things - everything from houseplants to imagery of flowers and animals. It really helps breath color and life into a space or a thing. I love floral stationery for the same reason - it feels fresh and pretty!

I am admittedly not the best at sending handwritten notes, but I've been trying to be better about it this year. My heart skips a beat whenever I actually get real mail so I assume others might feel the same (Do you?). I ordered some postcards from Tiny Prints to try and make my note-writing goal that much easier. How cute are these floral cards? They have that modern edge that I love so much.

Because I am just that lazy, but also because they're super cute, I ordered address stickers, too. I debated whether or not to blur out the address because maybe some of you would have sent me some pretty mail? Privacy won in the end (boring, I know). ;)

It's fun to have a big old stack of blank post cards on my desk, sitting pretty, but ready for action at all times! I've been sending them to friends and clients and family that live far away. Post cards are sort of like the Twitter of letter-writing - you have to keep things short and sweet, which is helpful for people like me that tend to get wordy.

Here are a few more of my floral-themed favorites available at Tiny Prints right now, in case you're looking to breath some color and life into your office space and your friends' mailboxes! :)

Jenny, I think this post is broken? Or maybe it's just me...

SB said...

I think it might be something wrong with Blogger, actually, the front page looks funny too...

Moya Miller said...

Hey Jenny - I think you may have a bug on the site, the full post won't load and keeps showing a box that asks you to enter a survey, which is kind of sketchy looking, so I assume it's not something you're responsible for. Good luck :)

Meredith said...

It's perfectly fine on my iPhone. Cute cards!

Mine posted for just a second, and then turned into the survey!

Stevi Gibson said...

Jenny, I had the same problem too. At first it looked like a quiz with just text and then I hit the refresh button and the quiz went away and your photos appeared. Hope it's not a bug!

I happen to love handwritten letters. There's just something so personal and intimate about them. And anything other than junk mail is always a nice surprise.

I wrote about handwritten letters not too long ago...http://thekimcollective.com/the-art-of-handwritten-letters/

Kimberlee Martin said...

Btw, everything looks okay to me. I'm looking at your site in Google Chrome.

Alex said...

Yes thank you! I have been considering sending snail mail to keep in touch with friends because I'm very bad about social media, calls, or texts. Also, I want valid excuses to use pretty stationary.

StationEry, not stationAry. Love your blog!

Emily said...

I have seen several posts/comments recently about bloggers working with brands and this is such a great example of how to do it right. You get to earn money from your blog but the posts are still true to your style.

Just a thought - I wondered if you might want to blur out the addresses of your friends on the post cards, for their privacy's sake? Love the blog, by the way...one of the few I keep up with! Cheers!

Jenny, what is the fabric on that floral pillow in the first few photographs? Beautiful!

Catherine Fagan said...

So in love with that bed. sigh...
I feel the same way when I receive or letter a postcard, especially when its out of the blue.

Clara said...

Hello Jenny, i want to share with you my success with our concrete countertop!!! Thank you so much for the tips and the idea. We are very please with the result. my best from Québec)))))

Sarah Sadie said...

Two little things:

1. It's stationery. My trick for remembering is that the words "write" and "wrote" have an "e" but no "a" in them. :)

2. There are special stamps for postcards! Only 34 cents now.

Alexandra Wade said...

Literally almost every post is a sponsored post... I miss your original content.

Rebekah Baltic said...

I LOVE that floral fabric!! I also really enjoy how you personalize the sponsored posts! It gives practical information on products that anyone can get. Thanks for being so inspiring!

Lily L-M said...

Loving the fabric on the pillow...can you share what it is?

Kiri Cragin Folwell said...

Those note cards are to die for! I am a sucker for stripes, but I love a good floral.

I have been dreaming about that upholstered headboard since the first post you wrote about it. I have a twin bed currently without any headboard at all and I keep looking for something like this but anything I find is not upholstered. *dreaming*

Jenny at LGN said...

Hi guys! Sorry for the glitches this morning! There was a coding error, but I think we're all fixed now, right? Thanks for the feedback!

Also! Thanks for the stationary/stationery catch! :)

The fabric is by Designer's Guild and the pattern is called Orangerie. Such a favorite of mine! :)

Sunkleronomo - Not to worry! I made a phony version of the top postcard that shows a (not real to my knowledge) address. :) Privacy saved!

Clara - I'm SO happy to hear your concrete countertops success story! It's a really great option for so many of us! :)

Hi Alexandra! The good news about sponsored content is that it ensures I'll be able to continue writing here! I have to make a pay check from the work I do on LGN, or else I wouldn't be able to justify the time away from my family and my design business. I hope you can understand. I promise to continue to do my best in choosing which brands to work with and to try to use those opportunities as a way to talk about something I'm genuinely excited about or have already been wanting to share. :)

Thanks, all, for your great comments here! I love hearing your feedback! xo

Natalie A said...

Thanks Jenny! As always, you keep things so classy! I love all your posts, sponsored & otherwise. Those postcards are adorable & I never would have viewed them without your post. Thank you for continuing to share your creativity with the world, you rock!

Barbie said...

Oh Jenny, I love your positive response to these comments. You really are awesome. I am one of probably thousands that would love to be your friend. You've got depth among so many other great traits! Even your sponsored posts are beautiful and inspiring. And you are a great writer too. What can't you do? :) Love seeing the Orangerie pillow on the purple headboard. What a great new pairing! All the best to you. XOXO
