well addressed

There is something about a handwritten note that is irreplaceable.  I covered that recently in my the art of the thank you note post and enjoyed hearing, as well as appreciated all of your comments and feedback on it.  It was nice to hear from you, that you too in this day and age of texts and e-mailing, still value the art of a hand written note.

While we all have our own penmanship style, Calligraphy is a style that is classic and always beautiful for addressing invitations or letters, especially for a more formal affair.  There are a variety of styles out there, some more old world and some with a modern edge to them.

I recently discovered a company called Linea Carta via Once Wed magazine who does absolutely beautiful calligraphy for weddings, personal stationery, baby showers and other special occasions.  The calligraphy style is a combination of classic, elegant and modern mixed with eco-friendly papers and simple designs; I am in love.  The woman who started it {Diva Pyari} grew up in the fashion industry, which would explain her collection’s impeccable style.

In addition to custom stationery Linea Carta offers custom love letters, {so very sweet}.  You can order them on-line via their Esty shop by entering your personal message and specifying your ink color preference, and they will write it out in calligraphy for you.

Can you imagine getting a love letter that looks like this in your mailbox from your sweetheart?

Additionally there are an array of linens and other customizable cards available, a few of my favorites are:

This custom return address stamp to dress up all of your handwritten letters – so elegant.

These fun but simple linen cocktail coasters.  Incredibly versatile and perfect for an outdoor summer party or well-dressed bar {would also make a lovely hostess gift}. They are made with 100% naturally sustainable linen.

Bon appétit dinner napkin.  I actually gave a set of these to my mother for Christmas and think they are the perfect everyday linen napkin for your table.  Whether a ladies lunch or a Sunday night family dinner, they set the tone for a special meal.

Wishing you a happy Monday.
