Who doesn’t love receiving something in the mail?  How about brightening a distant friend or family member’s day, by sending a delightful greeting card and a handwritten letter within?


Lise and I would always head to Blackbird (Mill Street shop in Almonte) when we wanted a beautiful greeting card.  When Blackbird closed, we took on some of the gorgeous lines of greeting cards that they had carried and found some stunning new ones as well.  We are all now living in an especially stressful time. Imagine, in today’s high-tech and ‘social media’ world, and at this time where some are feeling especially isolated, being on the receiving end of a hand-written note enclosed in a charming card.  Or better yet, enclose it in a care package full of special goodies.
