True Joy and Happiness Be Ever Thine

True Joy and Happiness Be Ever Thine, collage, by Karen KochA companion piece to From A Fond Heart Faithful And True, this one elevates an envelope from an ordinary everyday object to something grand and special.

Inside the envelope are several fragments of tiny vintage greeting cards: Cupid on the lookout for his next target, bouquets of flowers, and an open book printed with the phrase “True joy and happiness be ever thine”.

What a wonderful sentiment to send or receive!

Here is a close up of the envelope, which I hand-stitched with gold thread. Click on it to see a larger version:
