smitten by a business card. . .




all the beautiful things I buy to sell leave a smile on my face,


some have monetary value, some intrinsic value,
and some have value to those who appreciate them
but are discarded by those who may not.


Two little business cards, in their original envelope,
an advertising gimmick of their day. . .


A joy to discover twixt pages of a book

Aren't they great? Certainly bring a smile to your face and no doubt the laundry would Spring to mind if you needed your collars sorted!

Wonderful! And they remind me that ours are a disgrace - they've inspired me to design some new ones.
