The Most Charming Envelopes

These darling envelopes made from a vintage copy of Ludwig Bemelmans’ classic “Madeline’s Christmas” tug at my heart strings. Wouldn’t they make for the most original touch to your Christmas letters? I recently spilled a cup of coffee all over one of my treasured Eloise books. Perhaps I shall use the few surviving pages for some envelopes of my own ;)

She was not afraid of mice, she loved winter, snow and ice!

I love Madeline, almost as much as I love Eloise- getting a letter in an envelope made from either one would be such a treat!

Cassy – Yay! I’m so glad you bought them. Can you even imagine the look on your friends’ faces when they pull your Madeline letters out of the mailbox? Such fun!

These are amazing! I love Madeline! I can not imagine pulling one of these beauties out of the mailbox…or slipping one in!

Hi Katie,
It is so nice to see you posting again! I am sure you are too busy with Matchbook, but I miss the Neo Trad.(it is so hard to keep up with all of the things to read these days — sometimes short blog posts are just what the doctor ordered.). And I love these envelopes too–super cute. Hope all is well.
All best,
