Linda & Harriett 2010

Linda & Harriett posted photos of their 2010 calendar this week, so I thought it would be a good time also - we have these great calendars in stock and the best part ... the back of each month is printed so that you can cut the design off and send them as postcards. Assuming you can part with these calendars. I have had 2009 hanging in my kitchen and love it! Makes my day - as they are so happy! Visit to view more photos.

Sweater Love

It is no secret that we have always had a certain amount of love for MJK Knits personalized hand-knit sweaters - but now - even more. Look at these adorable hand-knit stocking caps, stockings and holiday sweaters. We have some great samples on their way to the shop. The hats are $44 and the stockings are $52 - they take about three weeks from when you order to when they arrive and we are also happy to package, wrap and ship them for you. Call us! Don't forget - if you order between September 1st and September 30th you will also get 10% off!

Refreshingly Honest

Yesterday I received the new Saks Fifth Avenue catalog in the mail. What a breath of fresh air to open the front cover and find a two-page spread listing the seven things they believe in - right there. What I really loved about this was how honest it felt - no apologies. In fact, Number 1 said "We're a fashion company. There will be no apologies for loving fashion. Now more than ever." And this is exactly how we feel.

We are a paper company. We love high-quality stationery and invitations and we will not apologize for that either. We look for designers who love what they do and who are very good at what they do. We don't sell products that aren't special and just like Saks "we would feel guilty selling them to you." Finally, reason Number 6 for Saks states "Boring is Bad. Our customers have a right to smile when getting dressed in the morning." And so it is our belief - that writing notes, sending invitations and hosting a cocktail party should make you smile.

Ben's Garden - New to KC and Bennett Schneider

We are so excited to have this great new line of decoupage plates, coasters and paperweights in the shop. We received them about two weeks ago and have been selling through them quickly. These make great housewarming gifts, birthday gifts or just somewhere special to drop your keys or glasses! We are getting ready to place another order so stop in soon and let us know if there is something you want.

Don't forget - though Christmas is still months away - it is never to early to start thinking ahead!
