Pretty pink papers. I think I’m in love!

The leather notepad below sits on my desk, but now that I know you can order personalized stationery from Sarah….I may be adding to my stationery wardrobe. The good thing about stationery is that if you’re writing notes, as we all should, then you do need replenshing!

Letters of Luxury – Nancy Sharon Collins


That’s what I thought when I saw the engraving work of Nancy Sharon Collins. Her work, which has appeared in Veranda, Town and Country, Martha Stewart Weddings and Departures magazine,  is not new….she has been designing custom monograms and ciphers since the 1970s. But, in an era where communication is usually limited to 140 characters and hitting “send”, it seems that I am drawn more than ever to the art and craft of hand engraving.

Nancy specializes in hand engraving on onion skin…a whisper-thin stock that was favored by Ernest Hemingway and jacqueline Kennedy Onasssis…at one time delicate and precious.

Nancy welcomes custom work, so if you are looking for something truly special, reach out to her and have her create an heirloom work of art.3000Ledonne_Violett-1500x1250 Blue_OS_NSCII-1500x1250 Figure5-Lagnaippe-Fall2015Artcmyk-III Lane-Ewing-card-photo-1125x1500 Leslie-Rylee-green-photo-1500x987 nsc-9-998x1500 Pink_NSC72a Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 9.49.37 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 9.50.09 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 9.51.57 PM sMs-ciphershalf-inch-steel-die-1500x1120 Wei_Monogram-e1410547727136Hello-Darling-new-product-shot-web-retouched-1500x1091Receiving a thoughtful letter on gorgeous stationery is a luxury today….let’s be part of the movement to fill up those mailboxes!
