3 cute illustrated cards sets for national letter writing month

As you can probably tell by now, I’m a total card junkie. I’m not even great about writing cards, I just like collecting them and knowing they’re there for whenever an occasion arises. And National Letter Writing Month is an occasion for letters like no other (except Christmas season perhaps). The last in my roundups of cute cards to help with your correspondence for National Letter Writing Month is three illustrated boxed variety packs, so you can choose the card that best matches the recipient!

book review: rachel ashwell couture prairie

Anyone who’s ever seen decorating icon Rachel Ashwell knows that she’s more at home in well-worn jeans and cowboy boots than anything else. So it really comes as no surprise to learn that her latest book, Rachel Ashwell Couture Prairie ($44, Cico Books), centres around her purchase of a small hotel in Round Top, Texas, that she’s transformed into a shabby-chic haven called The Prairie for like-minded people who make the trip to the Round Top antiques fairs that happen three times per year, as well as those who just want a quiet getaway at a rustic-meets-sophisticated country inn.

place to visit: sugar shack

Ah, it’s that sweet, sweet time again – maple syrup (also known as “sugaring off”) season. The timing varies every year, but it usually happens sometime after the end of February. The sugar shack experience is more than just tasting loads of maple syrup – if you’re in Quebec, you’ll likely get to enjoy a traditional meal of pea soup, ham, baked beans, potatoes, cretons (a pork spread similar to pâté), omelettes, gherkins and sugar pie (these are the highlights but there’s much more).

It’s not too late to get (or even better, make!) your special someone a Valentine’s day treat. Here, I repurposed a honey jar that’s in the shape of a bear and filled it with cinnamon hearts. It’s easy and cute – and doesn’t look like you put it together in just a few minutes. After all, it’s the thought that counts right?!
