At this time of year, you get the nagging feeling that the thank you notes you need to send out for the summer fun, showers and parties may be a bit overdue. If that is the case, I will make your life easier by guiding you to some new stationery that sends a message.

Swank. A stylish box sits neatly awaiting you. Contents are influenced by vintage wallpaper patterns and their very presence in the mailbox makes the US postal service look better. Find it at Elum Designs

Jonathan Wright and Company of Los Angeles has been a big part of the momentum for classic revivals. His cursive, scroll work and botanicals in the English tradition are a welcome addition to the paper realm. Deemed Extravagant Postage, this Ready-to-Mail series has affixed stamps with American historical objects on them. For those who embrace the charms of the past, these are perfect for antiquarians.

The Chinoiserie Folio comes with 8 letterpress cards and envelopes in a pretty pale blue. The geometric pattern against the soft overall floral is what really makes this special.

Furniture designer Charles Fradin has always found inspiration from growing up in New England. The comfortable luxury he designs is now imparted in writing paper. The wood boxes with sliding lids conceal a beautiful array of designs and small insignias. A classic weather vane, old typewriter and lighthouse evoke a genteel era where writing was an essential part of staying in touch. Make a swell statement with these, found at Charles Fradin Home

Just be careful with Charles Fradin. He has taken our money and flat out lied about delivery or products. Unfortunately, our next step will be a lawsuit. There is a reason that John Rosselli no longer carries his furniture.
