Holiday greetings from Hermès

One day I was looking forward to it and all of a sudden, poof, it’s over. It’s time to put away all the holiday decorations and take out the tree. Everything is back to normal as usual.

Until the next Christmas!

Anyhoo, imagine my surprise when I received this greeting in my e-mail from Hermès a few days ago. The illustration was done by Philippe Dumas who is also a designer of many Hermès scarves. I love pop-up books and cards so I was really delighted to see this. ‘Tales to be told‘ may be the theme for 2010?

However, as nice as it is, it still will never replace the hand-written cards I received from loved ones and friends. There’s just something about the ink on paper that always warm the heart.

I keep them all.

I always look forward to getting greeting cards, postcards and letters in the mail.

    I think we should stop e-mailing each other and just correspond using the Royal Mail from now on.

    Sure, send me some more beautiful cards! Remember, it has to be hand-written though.
