* While we acknowledge that this time of year is called “The Dog Days of Summer”… our cats would like us to remind you that the Dog Days of Summer was a phrase originally coined to talk about the 20 days before, and 20 days after, the conjunction of Sirius (the Dog Star) and the Sun… and therefore should not be used in this instance. We over-ruled them. (Even though we were very impressed by their astrological knowledge!) And it should be noted, that while this may or may not be the Dog Days of Summer… according to our Haute Note “assistants”, it is ALWAYS the Cat Days… Spring, Summer Winter and Fall!
Who doesn’t love to get a pretty piece of mail in amongst the ho hum bills, flyers and various other junk mail that clutter your mailbox? I know I do! There never seems to be anything GOOD in there!
Obviously, Haute Note is all about the handwritten, personal note. The ORIGINAL “Social Media”! So when we heard about a Pretty Postal Floral Mail Swap, we knew we were participating, for sure!
Why don’t you join us? You too, can receive some beautiful mail!
How you ask?
Sign up for the Pretty Postal Floral Swap. You will be matched with 3 to 5 people, possibly from anywhere in the world. You will send them some beautiful mail, and in return, you will receive some! There’s only two more days to sign up, as registration closes on Sunday, May 15th.
So embrace your love of snail mail, put on your Crafty Hat and create some beautiful mail!
Mother’s Day is still a few days away… but weekends are hectic times, and we wanted to take a moment… find a few pictures from “back in the day”… and share them.
That is, after all, the purpose of Mother’s Day.
To say “Thank you” for everything.
Because, despite how cute and adorable and innocent we look in these pictures… every kid causes their Mom (or Mum) at some point, to stop… take a deep breath… wipe their hand across a furrowed brow… and internally count to ten.
And, whether the Moms are across the table, or across the Country…
Whether you can give her a hug, or just hold her in your heart…
