Some years ago, I received the thank you note in the photograph. It was a thank you for something I’d sent a dear friend. While I adore pretty stationery and all handwriting is good handwriting, this one still stands out as a beautiful example of elegant simplicity.

The friend in question is super-busy, so I wasn’t expecting anything at all. The card is thick and feels lovely. There’s just nothing quite like a piece of weighty, textured card to make me happy. And the note is short, sweet and just lovely.

It made my day and is among my favourite letters I’ve received over the years. Also It’s also a good reminder for me that no matter how busy I am, time can always be made to send something to a friend 🙂

So what are your favourites? Have you ever received a one-liner that made you smile?
