Rook Script

I just received this photo from my client Lucy. She wanted to show me how the envelopes I had calligraphed for her and her fiance Matt looked with the vintage postage they chose to use. They selected stamps that relate in some way specifically to each invitee. Great idea and I love the way they look with the Rook style calligraphy.

  1. They are gorgeous! I love the color of the lettering. My niece is using vintage postage for her envelopes too. I think it's a great finishing touch to hand calligraphy.

  7. Hi Lisa! All of our guests have LOVED the calligraphy. Renee- to answer your question- we got all our postage on ebay. We tried not to pay much over face (though we usually did have to pay for shipping). Buying in sheets makes it a lot cheaper. Try this link: http://stamps.shop.ebay.com/Sheets-/265/i.html?_catref=1
    Thanks again Lisa!!

  8. Lisa, thank you very much for your sweet comment on my blog! You are most kind! Yes, my hand is healing and the pain has left them, even without medications. I just needed to rest them for a few days. I will continue resting them. I will try your advice. Vitamin B complex supplements are good for the body and I am very bad at forgetting to take them. I will definitely do that! Thank you so much. You are such a delight!

    Not only are you beautiful and attracive and talented, you are so sweet and kind too!
