Around Christmastime, I shared a simple display I rigged up to hang a few Christmas cards in my dining room. I’ve since swapped out the contents of the display, and wanted to show you how it’s currently looking!
I love to send and receive snail mail, and I strongly believe in the power of a handwritten letter. Sadly, letter writing has become a dying art. Keeping in touch via e-mail or social media simply does not have the same charm! As a kid, I had dozens of pen pals from across the globe, and to this day I still have a few friends with whom I regularly exchange handwritten letters. Stemming from this hobby of mine, I have a large collection of postcards and note cards, some of which I received in the mail, and others which are new, but I can’t bring myself to send them away because I think they’re too pretty. I wanted to put a few of my favorites on display in my home.

I love these happy new additions to our dining room – they bring a smile to my face!
