the art of a handwritten note + stationery favorites

I’ve been a huge admirer of stationery since I was a little girl. When the remake of The Parent Trap came out in the 90s, my eyes zeroed in on Annie’s stationery box she had at camp. It was filled with sentimental letters, blank notecards, photos, stamps, pens, and more. Of course I immediately had to have one just like it. My memie had an old chocolate tin in her pantry, which was nice and shallow, just perfect for my very own stationery collection. I can’t express the joy I found in filling it with my own paper treasures.

This love continued into my adult life, as I still really enjoy collecting stationery of all kinds… and bonus points if it feels luxe and is engraved with my initials. For our “paper” anniversary, I had our letterpress wedding invitation recreated, but instead of the wedding details engraved in the middle, it was left blank with just our wedding monogram at the top and the border going all around. This served as my anniversary card to Brandon that year. See, paper products just really make my heart sing—and a handwritten note is absolutely an art we should not let go!

I recently came across a company on Instagram called Stovall Collection and I instantly felt my jaw drop a little as I peered through their beautiful custom offerings. Couldn’t help but pick out a design for myself, which I have pictured in these photos. I love that they later put it on the site and named them Megan Notes. She already had this design in blue, but I just knew the green would be perfection!

 

Stovall also has some other beautiful designs, which you can browse here. Upon talking to them later, they offered to provide a code to you all, if you’d like to purchase anything on their site.

…ps. they also have a great selection of gifts and holiday cards!

 

Since I’ve been bookmarking stationery favorites for years now, I wanted to share some others that I’ve had pinned. All of these are on Etsy from various makers.
