skelWhile on a visit to our favorite stationers, Jules Besch of Wellfleet, MA, Sophie and I spent hours looking at all the amazing cards that the proprietor had collected for sale and falling in love all over again with cards and stationary. 

A trip to Jules Besch is always a thrill, but on this visit, over the Columbus Day weekend, Sophie and I had the opportunity to attend their annual tea event, when the Christmas card collections for the year are introduced in an open house format, including homemade treats, like raspberry cookies (Sophie’s favorite) and bourbon balls (more bourbon please!).

It was on this trip that I stumbled across this great card from Le Clair Handcrafted Cards of Seattle.  The card features a praying skeleton and I loved it.  Although not technically a Halloween card, I purchased it as a centerpiece of my Halloween collection. 

I was curious to learn more about Le Clair and went straight to their website, where I found this card as well as dozens of other great cards.

About Le Clair Handcrafted Cards: “Vintage images, vibrant colors, rich thick paper, are a few words describing LeClair Handcrafted Cards. Our selection contains over 600 different cards ranging from beautiful flowers, to an 1800’s French knight. LeClair.”

I love many of the card Le Clair offers, but for now – check out the series of Halloween themed cards here.
