New Stationery and Book

I found a wonderful new book with lots of fast and easy projects in it. The patterns are in a pocket in the front of the book. I love these napkins and they are so easy. You get the directions to make the napkins and patterns for the embroidered dandelions. This is only one sample of what is inside.
Aren't they just the cutest?
Now for the stationery. Can you imagine getting a letter written on such beautiful paper? I don't write many letters with email and telephone these days but once in awhile I do. And I'll save it for special friends. This is the box that it came in.
And the page inside that tells you all about the paper. I tried to take a close up so you could read it. Below that is a picture of the whole page showing the different stationery.

Isn't this beautiful. Wouldn't you love getting a letter on such pretty paper?
Below is a close up of each page.



Now for the hard part, who should I write to first?

What a stunning book. Thanks for sharing it with us Judy. Ooh, the napkins are so lovely. I bought some beautiful linen napkins in South Africa, but I just haven't had the heart to use them yet. These are so sweet with the embroidery. Will you be making some?

I love French Country! I have some wall paper in the dining room that is French Country. I have tried to add a little here and there.

All that to say, I love your paper. I like the way things are presented in your book. Lovely packaging! My daughter would love it. She is all about presentation.

Hi Judy, You will love the book Cottage Collectibles. It is so pink and green and pretty. And it's just page after page of ideas. You can write to me anytime with that gorgeous stationary. Then I can turn it into gift tags. :)

Hi Judy,

That paper is fantastic, so ornate. It really does look like wallpaper.
I write a letter a week but not on paper like that.

Have a good one,
Barb

I have a copy of one of her books...can't remember the title. ALways such an eye candy, isn't it?

I still have stash of stationeries from college days that I brought with me when I came to the US... I'm such a hoarder!

Have a lovely day!

Hi Judy,
Very pretty. I would love to receive a note on one of the note cards - for some reason, I'm drawn to the brown one. They are all beautiful though. Thank you for sharing - French General always has wonderful things!

How pretty! I love stationery. Writing is becoming a lost art so who ever you write will be thrilled to get a lettler from you.
I've been playing catch up on your blog and now I'm so hungry. You have made some wonderful things there! I'm going to have to give them a try.

Hugs,
Joanne
