Happy Friday! Why not spend this chilly January weekend by reading, reflecting on old times and writing to relatives, old friends... exes? Ok, maybe not exes. As a lover of fine paper goods and especially the intricate detailing created by a letter press, I've found the card selection at Street Scene to be jam-packed with dainty, funny, letter-pressed treasures! The card faces tend to have endearing illustrations on the front--usually of cute baby animals, children, or flowers--and beautiful cursive script on the inside with a perfectly sweet note. Although I like to read through what others have written inside the cards to someone they loved so long ago, more often than not the cards are completely blank inside.

So this weekend, go ahead: have a glass of something soothing in a bubble bath; snuggle up to your favorite pet, or vintage LIFE magazine, or vintage Playboy--wait, what? That went off the rails quickly... Get nostalgic! Sit under the light of an awesomely gaudy lamp, open up a beautiful card and tell someone you love, "hey," "hi," "wazzup," "I miss you." Most of all, have a wonderful weekend.
