From Cranes Stationery
From Mrs. John L. Strong Stationery Collection
The lovely ladies who organize the Southern Accents magazine blog always have something of interest to say. Today, they talked about the importance of the thank you note. Being a lover of all manner of stationery and it's ultimate purposes, I take great interest in anything having to do with it's use. Instilling the value of properly thanking someone has been something I have been working on with Beach Walker Boy from the time he was able to draw a few lines. His effort has been paying off and he has realized that when he makes the effort to show appreciation properly, he is applauded for his effort and good things come back his way. Sometimes he struggles with the correct use of words but he understands the formula and in the long run, we all know that it's the thought that counts. He has recently sent out his very first properly written invitation acceptance. Hooray! On to next steps.
Keeping a nice supply of stationery papers at the ready helps to insure the thank you notes are sent. There are so many pretty papers. When you click on the link below, you'll see the pretty papers presented in the Southern Accents blog. Personally, I like Cranes or Mrs. John L. Strong papers. Beach Walker Boy uses Cranes basic informal notes or correspondence cards...no frill for him...typical boy. Recently, I picked up a pack of very pretty photo cards prepared by the Alhambra Garden Club of Mount Pleasant. Each card featured a beautiful picture of a local historical site in town. My favorite and the first used was of Pitt Street in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant where the Village Bakery is located. Ahhh! The Village Bakery...well that's a whole other post...
Have a look at the Southern Accents magazine blog. It really is quite good. Sincerest Thanks - Miss Gracious Living - Southern Accents
