It was love at first sight when I saw these brightly colored, whimsical literary note cards created by Veronica at Paper Dali. Maybe its just that some of my very favorite authors made the cut — Poe, O’Connor, Austen, Bronte…… (sigh).
I thought it would be fun to attach one of these little cards to a book by the same author as a lovely Valentine’s Day — or anytime — gift. Cut up and attached to card stock, they’d make great book marks for a book group or class of literature/creative writing students. Or maybe matte and frame the entire sheet and use it to add a little literary bling to that “room of your own” you’ve been meaning to fix up — that’s what I’m going to do with mine!
While browsing Veronica’s site, I also found this poster and was simply charmed. I remember day-dreaming about Heathcliff way back in the day……. Who am I kidding? I still do! If you’ve got a daughter or other young lady in your life who dreams of finding a real-life Mr. Darcy, you might consider making her a gift of this unique literary wall art. Beats those Tiger Beat Justin Bieber posters hands-down, right?
