Stationary Fun

I came across these great cards last week (at the Elizabeth Grace store).  They are simple and playful and have great sayings.  The ones I bought say, “Goody Goody Gumdrops,” which I thought would be fun framed in the playroom (maybe even with some of the ones pictured above).  And the other says, “Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda” as a reminder to not feel guilty all the time (ha)!  The fun cards are by a company called Bob’s Your Uncle, which I found humorous because I do in fact have an Uncle Bob.  However, I’ve learned that Bob’s Your Uncle is actually is a British saying that means, “Everything is fine!”  Those Brits and their sayings.   The company is based out of Boston but was founded by a British couple.  They have lots of other fun items other than stationary with all kinds of words and sayings.  Very cheeky I might say!
I’m very into framing cards as art right now and these are going to be a great add to the collection!
