Oooh, I just discovered these calling cards from Rifle Paper Co. via Joanna Goddard's Christmas lists. I think I'll be ordering some soon, since they fit that narrow "suitable for professional and mommying purposes" slot I've been trying to fill.
Calling cards always make me think of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Do you remember when she got hers, and it was such an overwhelming luxury? In my mid-twenties thinking of that moment made me weep more than once. I felt awfully spoiled. I felt like we were all awfully spoiled, with so much STUFF.
And for a totally opposite sentiment, I have to say that I have really enjoyed doing some online Christmas shopping this year. It's just like my normal guilty browsing except that now I (1)actually get to buy stuff, (2)am supposed to be doing it, (3)get to check things off my list afterwards.
