To my sweet surprise, I found a letter written in beautiful handwriting with an equally wonderful sentiment in my mailbox today. It came from fellow Designer Karen Newman of Pentimento Interiors in Newton, MA. She wrote to thank me for calling her back to share a design resource from my recent feature in Design New England Magazine. She was pleased that I had taken the time to call her back.
I’m so glad I did! What a lovely reward to receive an old fashioned note with elegantly curved letters and thoughtfully formed words. A handwritten note is one of my favorite things. I have always kept a box of blank cards in my desk drawer and, like Karen, will continue to uphold this waning but worthy tradition.
When is the last time you wrote or received a handwritten note in the mail?
