I just purchased the cutest, non-functional stationary! My staff is going to think I’m nuts because as far as I can tell, you can’t actually mail these cards in the mail. But, next time one of you gets a fun little prize box from me, you can get you’ll get one of these super cute, hand stitched cards from Bebe and Alice.
Also, this adorable postcard/card set from Saratams touched my heart because of adorable Kylie and Nicolas so I picked up a set of these little “Brothers” cards. As a bittersweet punctuation point, the purchased helped to benefit the Cora Paige Playground.
I’m excited to get these handmade cards in the mail because I am down to the last of my card drawerand have lots of thank you cards and greetings to write. For once, the cards aren’t letterpressed but they looked so fetching that I just didn’t care.
Interesting – I’ll go check out your blog and see what the situation is/was. I love the cards and am thrilled I got one of the only sets before you had to take them down. =)
Just wondered if you had any feedback about the stance Vera Bradley is taking on this stationary set I have created.
They asked that I remove it from my shop because of copyright infringement. I did remove it, changed the title and description and relisted it. Having sold a set to you I thought you may have personal interest in the matter. You can visit my blog to read more about the issue: http://bebeandalice.blogspot.com
Thanks for chiming in. That’s great to know that you’ve had good luck with sending those very clever cards through the mail. I’ll try it today!
Love the little boy cards. So cute!
Hi! Actually, these are able to be sent through USPS mail. I’ve mailed 3 or 4 and they are accepted by the USPS and arrive at their destination just fine.
I just addressed them on the white label that I’ve included.
Try it…I do believe it will work for you!
Glad you enjoy them!

Aww, look at those two kids romping through the grass! 😀 LOVELY!
Mary, Thanks for the upcoming order. I totally appreciate the support =)
Rita, I’m not seeing a lot of browns for spring/summer but the fall/winter is starting to darken up some. =)
Feto, brilliant idea with the clear envelopes! We have a paper store close by that should totally have these. Thanks!

I adore sewing on paper. If you think these can’t be mailed, try putting them in a clear protective envelope. I got mine at an art supply store, but it looks like you can get them online too. http://www.clearenvelopesambershaw.com/
I wonder if you haunt fabric stores and catalogs? I have been seeing a lot of brown and retro fabrics in the line up for quilting fabrics. I am hoping that brown makes its way into fashion, there is so little I can wear there, not like all the blond colors that have been around the last few years.

Anne-Marie, I bet you do figure out a way to mail them! They are wonderful. When I saw your post I thought, “Oh oh…more note cards!” But then I read that you were down to few. I loved the one that you sent to me (lavender, white, with green, and ribbons). I still need to post on it and the pack that I received.
Also…I really must get busy and order some of your scents, especially a few from your “permanent” list below!
I don’t think you can figure out how to address fabric envelopes? Maybe with super glue and label stock? It doesn’t really matter though. They are indeed striking.

Those cards are very cool! I’m not convinced they’re as un-mailable as you say, but you can certainly see them better than I can. I think you can mail all sorts of odd stuff through the USPS, as long as you’ve got enough postage.
