Presidential Stationery

White House Stationery

In the spirit of the current political season, Emily and I thought we would join in the discussions in our own way. Below are pictures of past presidential stationery made by Crane & Co. All political views aside, we completely agree with these presidents’ choices in stationery! It doesn’t get much better than Crane’s. We hope you enjoy these pictures from Crane’s Pinterest boards (you can enlarge the pictures by clicking on them).

Book Signing at the Smith-Byrd House

Smith-Byrd House



Happy Tuesday!

Please join us Saturday, March 3rd, from 10:30 – Noon for a book signing at the Smith-Byrd House in Prattville.  If you or someone you know is getting married, our book, Something New: The Bride’s Complete Guide to Writing Thank You Notes, will help with the all important task of writing thank you notes for the gifts that are received during this exciting time.  Its companion book, Something New: The Bride’s Complete Guide to Tracking Thank You Notes, is a helpful resource for tracking and organizing gifts and thank you notes.  Both books will be available for purchase at the Smith-Byrd House.  As an added bonus, scones and tea will be served for those who want to stay awhile.  We look forward to seeing you there!

The Smith-Byrd House is located at 137 North Washington Street, Prattville, Alabama, 36067.
