Boutique Stationer Giveaway

August 19th, 2011

Happy Friday friends, I’m so excited for the weekend!  I have plans to go see ‘The Help’, have you seen it yet?  I hear good things!  Meanwhile it’s time for another weekend giveaway. 

I think you’ll be delighted with this online shop, it’s Felix Doolittle, a site filled with some of the most charming personalized stationery I’ve come across in a while.  Felix Fu is an artist who paints simple yet beautiful watercolor images and is known for his signature style.  Lovely!

Felix Doolittle is home to many original designs and a fantastic source for everyday writing papers and tablets, birth announcements, return address labels, magnets, bookplates, moving announcements, and note cards.

There’s something so charming about these nostalgic stationery products that reminds me of those simpler times long ago when instead of a text message, friends would drop their calling card when paying a visit.  Despite the conveniences of the digital age, nothing will ever take the place of a personalized handwritten note.
