Mildred Greear Card
Part of our Little Women, Big Women Collaboration with State the Label. This limited edition letterpress card features an illustration of Mildred Greear (poet, english teacher, environmentalist, and chicken keeper) and was designed by Megan. This card is from a stationery set that is unlike any we’ve seen (or even created) before so if you’d like to take a deeper dive to learn more about the how and why behind it you can read more in our blog post here.
The insert for this card reads: “Mildred came into my life when I was 9 years old. When I met her, her children were already grown, and she was a retired teacher, poet, and a homesteader of sorts. She was the first person I ever met who had a flock of hens. On our first meeting we collected eggs together, and she cooked one for me. Seated in her kitchen at a small breakfast table I knew that I was in the presence of someone magical and that I was being let in on two of life’s great secrets: 1) there’s a difference in passing the time with someone, and taking the time to really be with someone, and 2) there aren’t too many things in this world more delicious than a fresh egg scrambled in butter. Mildred is nearly 100 now, and for me she represents the tender strength of so many women who make a difference in this world by taking the time to really be with those around them.” -Megan Fowler, Age 33
