Stan Williams, otherwise know as the Elegant Thrifter, otherwise known as the author of The Find, sent me a little something in the post today. I tend to not look in the mailbox. Instead, I leave the grim job of pulling out bills, etc. to my husband. No bills today. Look hither.You know that Stan is a class act, just by looking at his penmanship. I'm struggling to teach cursive to some of my grade five students. I should show them Stan's script as inspiration.
Look at this cute London sticker on the back of the envelope. I'm sure these have a proper name that I'm not aware of: envelope seal? I love the old wax and stamp seals too.
Look what Stan sent - a beautiful bookplate for my copy of The Find. As luck would have it, my sister who had been borrowing the book for a prolonged period of time, handed it back a couple of weeks ago.
Thanks Stan! I appreciate that you espouse great things that are within reach of the common person, not just the über wealthy. You are one of my new favourite writers. I'll be buying my sister a copy of The Find for her birthday in May.
P.S. Mom Wald was the first person to reply to the Pay it Forward post below. Two people can still write in to have me make them something. I'm thinking paper art/photography. No hideous clay ashtrays. Promise.
