Remember when I told you about my new friend Justin?  Well, I forgot to mention that, among other things, he worked under a master stone carver for four years (writing in stone?!?  I would not do well with that) and is also pretty handy with a quill.  His calligraphy is so stunning that he was even asked to write out his cousin’s marriage documents.  This is the card he gave me for my birthday, isn’t it beautiful?  The marbled envelope was made by John C. Bielik, a fellow interpreter of history that Justin knows through the museum world.  You can purchase John’s wares online at his Etsy store or at the Coggeshall Farm Museum Store in Bristol.  What’s the best card you’ve ever been given?
