Letters and Books

June is moving through days lightning fast, on Monday I did spent the morning hours sitting at the courthouse for Jury selection, I was not chosen this time around which is fine with me and I did get in several hours of reading while I waited which is always a pleasure.

Yesterday among the bills, sales ads and letters was the newest hand stamped stationery set I purchased from this Etsy shop:
I live in a city well known for its horse farms as soon as I saw this set I knew I had to buy it, a very fitting set to reflect that aspect of the city.  Again the paper quality is excellent, a good weight and quite smooth, I used a fountain pen with no ink bleed through.  Photos of the envelopes and the two designs included in the set.

writing sheets
Also this week I managed to squeeze in the time to buy my copy of the Amanda Cooper book Tempest in a Teapot
I do like a good mystery and anything with a teapot or tea cup involved just peaks my interest even more.  Who knows this book may be a good choice to include in a future tea party gift bag.

My son lent me his copy of this interesting book, as a child if you ever sent away for anything advertised in the back of magazines or comic books you may find this a fun read.

Well I am off to the pool for an aquacise class and then some swimming and relaxing around the pool with a good book and some letters to write, its going to be another hot day here in central Florida.

  1. Hello Deb,
    Great stationery, pretty images. There are not too many places one can buy stationery. Barns and Nobel has some nice sets and once in a while Tuesday Morning has some.
    Love the button work that you did a few post ago. Very cute. You are doing some reading there, good for you. I just can get myself to do that right now. Maybe a fun book to get myself going. The ones I have in my reading pile are history and a few autobiography.
    Glad to hear you have completed your civic duty. : ) Thanks for that.
    Have a great day.
