Hello Sunshine + More

Well, Hello Sunshine! Yes, that’s right. I’m talking to YOU!

Loving both the written note and calligraphy, I was thrilled to stumble upon Sparrow Nest Script, where casual + calligraphy = fresh take on notes, cards and gifts.

Hallmark cards for Mom are great…but these have a sweet handmade feel. ($7-8 each)

Send one of these moleskin notebooks to your favorite camper or grad. Whether they are brimming with ideas, want to rehash the Hunger Games or jot down their favorite Harry Potter quotes…there’s a notebook for it. ($15-20 each).

Want to encourage your young reader to pick up those required summer reading books? Need a party favor for your book club party? Want to top off a favorite book for a graduating senior or favorite teacher? Check out these bookmarks. Or send them your favorite quote and the’ll create one for you. ($5 each)

Best of all….everything above can be customized in the color of your choice. And, that is worth jotting down!
Wishing you a sunshine filled day!


I had one of those days that I couldn’t have scripted any better.
Lunch at BG with a longtime friend, visiting from out of town. Followed by a little browsing on the 7th floor of Bergdorf Goodman. Then, as if on cue, Bernard Maisner, the gifted King of Calligraphy, stopped by to say hello to the associates who sell his eponymous line of engraved stationery, bookmarks, place cards and holiday cards.
I have a box of his engraved flower stationery….bought in Dallas on my last trip home. It’s an understatement to say I’m a fan.
Bernard Maisner is an internationally renowned calligrapher, stationer and contemporary artist. Owning one of his little masterpieces is owning a fine piece of art. 
If you live in, near or will be visiting NYC on December 11th…mark this on your calendar! 
Bernard will be at Bergdorf Goodman that afternoon, on the 7th floor, offering complimentary customization for any of his work purchased that day. 
Here are some ideas on how to leverage this opportunity:
❤Select a bookmark for a friend, have it customized with her name and give it with a special book
❤Customize bookmarks for each of your book club members
❤Customize a set of place cards for each member of a friend’s family
❤Customize a set of place cards for your family and use them for holiday dinners
❤Customize a paperweight to commemorate a wedding, a birthday, a new baby
