Vintage Letter Napkins


Every now and then something new comes along that really catches our eye as being refreshingly unique. So rarely are we impressed with the overly extravagant, whereas discovering a fresh approach to a simple idea is where we feel true genius lies. Today our hearts are soaring with adoration for our new "letters of advice" napkins! Printed on 100% cotton, each napkin consists of a letter from one of history's greatest wordsmiths, including Charles Dickens, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Jefferson and Rudyard Kipling. One of our favorite words of advice comes from the pen of F. Scott Fitzgerald sent to his daughter, which reads,

Things not to worry about: 
Don't worry about popular opinion. Don't worry about dolls. Don't worry about the past. Don't worry about the future. Don't worry about growing up. Don't worry about anybody getting ahead of you. Don't worry about triumph. Don't worry about failure unless it comes through your own fault. Don't worry about mostquitoes. Don't worry about flies. Don't worry about insects in general. Don't worry about parents. Don't worry about boys. Don't worry about disappointments. Don't worry about pleasures. Don't worry about satisfactions.

Can you imagine receiving a letter from one of the greatest novelists of all time, telling you not to worry about insects? If F. Scott Fitzgerald can't be our Dad, then at the very least, these napkins make it easier to pretend we're receiving a letter from him in the mail. Each napkin measures 14" x 16". Set includes 4 napkins packaged in a vintage style manilla envelope. These words of wisdom are sure to be great conversation starters around the table! Be sure to grab your letters of advice before they're all gone!
