La Vieille Dame Card

$4 $6

Part of our Little Women, Big Women Collaboration with State the Label. This limited edition letterpress card features La Vielille Dame and was designed by Gaëlle. 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: “Every year I make a trip back home to France. Every year I observe, in awe, a few very old ladies walking on their own, most of them with their backs bent down. They carry a grocery bag or two, and I think: “What these women portray is survival, ‘malgré tout’, they are still able to get out of their house and go to the grocery store. Alone, yes, but self-sufficient, and not in a nursing home.” I admire those women. They inspire me. They have a will to survive. Their road is getting closer to the end. They carry on those (often bent) shoulders and back so much life. I want to be one of them down the road, one day.”     -Gaëlle Boling, Age 66

Display Suggestions: This is one of our number one asked questions… so, we answered it by creating a custom wooden stand that can be used to hold small prints or photos long after 2022 is gone. We also offer metal skeleton wall clips that complement the minimalist simplicity of our calendars. These clips can also be used for hanging small and large prints, cards, photographs, or maybe even that beautiful branch you found on your walk around the neighborhood.

For additional display ideas— take a look at our Pinterest board for inspiration!

Gift Wrap: If you’re giving our 2022 calendar as a present this year, let us wrap it up and make it look even more special with our custom garden tool gift wrap. Your calendar will arrive wrapped in a beautiful green patterned paper with a velvet bow and be ready to give to a neighbor, friend, or family member. Please click here to add to the gift wrap to your order after you've added the calendars to your cart.
