You NEED these…

I have a blog friend who is warm and funny and generous

and has a fascinating past

and a gorgeous weimeramer

...not to mention a once gas station she is converting into a beautiful home

with designer chickens...that she names

really...I'm not making any of this up!

She recently sent me the most beautiful ‘herdas she calls them

of Great Danes…

Excellent Danes as my son says...

Gasp! I LOVE these notecards

These little bitty letterpress Big Black Danes

galloping over beautiful card stock…with multi hued envelopes

And I LOVE Melissa

at the Handwork Chronicles

she creates these and so many many more works of art…and soul.

Cranks them all out one by one in her studio in the deeps of Colorado

Beautifully!

And YOU can have a chance at your own herd, as she is celebrating her 100th sale on Etsy

Go to her blog…

Enter to win

...and tell her hello from the

Big Black Dog

The little herd is wonderful! I have a slight addiction to stationary and such! There is just something wonderful about writing or receiving a hand written note on beautiful paper. This isn't hand written but...Have a happy weekend.

Deborah said...

Happy Friday, my friend! **kisses** Deb

Melissa said...

Thanks so much for the nice words, Linda! I'm happy to see that Bo has taken a liking to his new little herd. Have a great weekend!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

These cards are great--thanks for telling us about them. We have a big brown dog who investigates everything happening here. I saw your post on Bok Tower-I was there as a kid with my mom and even then I thought it was pretty amazing! Linda

Karen Deborah said...

What a sweet post to your friend! I am hopelessly in love with your big black dog. The cards are wonderful but your dog is even better and her dog is adorable too, love the hat and scarf!

The big black dog is a dream. I grew up with one of those!
