Giving Thanks!

 This week I have spent quit a bit of time at this spot in my home.  I have had lots of Thank You's to write after the Rotary Gala.  I love going into the Living Room, as it is almost like being away from home. (the kitchen is full of too much hustle & bustle)
 I have a collection of stationary and it is fun for me to pick out which note card I'm sending to whom.  The "V" in the background were cards handmade by my daughter in her graphic design class.  She gave them to me for Christmas, along with the stamp she handmade.

 You can notice all of the natural light shining in the room.  That is another one of my reasons for loving this room.


Part of my collection!
 This is one of my newest additions.  I love the brand Papyrus!
A closer look at the cards Danielle made for me!

boots-Aquatalia (super comfy)

Tip:  I just returned from a certification program in etiquette and learned that a Thank You note consists of 4 lines (the 1,2,4 relate to the event or gift, the 3 unrelated).


  1. Cute top and jeans plus the boots are cool! Such a pretty and sun filled room to sit and write some notes. That's a great idea to have a collection of cards on hand. How sweet of your daughter to make some cards for you.

  2. Lovely look. I agree that black lace skirts depending upon the style can look staid and almost matronly. Pairing them with leather is a great idea to add edge. I don't own a lace skirt. I just have not found one with the right hemline and structure for me yet.wholesale Jewelry
