Great deal alert: As always, Michael’s has their one-of-a-kind stationery for a few bucks in the wire racks at the font of their store (I’m a big sucker for these impulse buys as evidenced in this post of yore). Well, right now they have some of this great stationery in their clearance (usually somewhere in the middle of the store towards the back-ish), as they often do, but this time it’s cute as a freakin’ button. Check it:
Excuse the frenzied camera phone photography — I actually do have a fancy new camera, but I was in a hurry driven by great deal deadlines — and please excuse the unvacuumed carpet — I’ve been out of town (I’m also not big on vacuuming).
Let’s focus on what’s important: These note cards. They draw their inspiration from vintage dress patterns and cheese ball women’s fashion mag advertising, and oh, I’m all about it.
Close up time:
Gingers in green dresses doing their best Tallulah Bankhead impressions FOR THE WIN.
Oh, and that’s a fake pearl glued onto that card. We’re talking three dimensions, y’all. They come six to a pack for FIFTY CENTS!
Girl, you wear that birdcage veil. You look GOOD.
What to wear, indeed. #toughquestions Let’s just watch Fox News try to sort this one out.
(Also, she’s wearing a dress with a tassel pattern — not a real tassel.)
A lot of good things going on with this card. I would like that teal coat with the fur trim very much. Please and thank you.
Nothing like a good pun.
And like I said, only fifty cents for a six pack!
As you can see, I bought all of them. There’s no limit to my affordably priced, cute and/or clever note card zeal
And they’re blank inside, which affords me the opportunity to come up with even more fashion related puns.
Ah the possibilities… :)
Oh, and did I mention the envelopes?
Go grab them now, before they’re all gone! (I got mine on Saturday at a Michael’s in Chattanooga, but there were plenty there, so it might not be too late!)
I think they would be perfect in simple white frames or (conversely) ornate gold frames. In a future where I have a grand walk in closet or my very own dressing room in my home (you know, in lieu of a man cave for Josh), I would cover the walls in cuteness like these fun cards.
Run to Michael’s. Now. Do not pass go. Do not collect
two hundred dollars insert time wasting thing here.
(Why would I stop you from collecting two hundred dollars?)
