Year of Quotes Postcard Set - Quote for Each Month of the Year - 12 Pack


This beautiful pack of twelve rainbow coloured postcards features a quote from literature for each month of the year. A wonderful gift to yourself or to a loved one to help you kick off 2024 the right way. 

Here are the quotes: 

“January is the month for dreaming.” - Jean Hersey.

“You have such a February face, so full of frost, or storm and cloudiness.” - Shakespeare. 

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” - Charles Dickens.

“A gust of bird-song. A patter of dew. A cloud. And a rainbow’s warning. Suddenly sunshine and perfect blue - an April day in the morning.” Harriet Elizabeth Prescott Spofford.

“For may wol have no slogardie a-night. The seson priketh every gentil herte, and maketh him out of his slepe to sterte.” - Geoffrey Chaucer.

“At midnight, in the month of June, I stand beneath the mystic moon.” - Edgar Allen Poe. 

“Hot July brings cooling showers, apricots and gillyflowers.” - Sara Coleridge. 

“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.” - Sylvia Plath. 

“That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing. Vacation nearly done, obligations gathering. Books and football in the air.” - Wallace Stegner. 

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” - L.M Montgomery. 

“Some of the days in November carry the whole memory of summer as a fire opal carries the colour of moonrise. “ - Gladys Taber.

“I heard a bird sing in the dark of December. A magical thing, a sweet to remember, we are nearer to spring than we were in September. I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.” - Oliver Herford. 

Postcards feature hand-drawn designs that have been printed onto 300gsm smooth textured card.

We have made the decision to no longer package our cards in plastic cello bags in a bid to be more environmentally friendly. Your postcard set will be packaged and sent in a board backed envelope.

10cm x 15cm.  

There’s also the option to add one of our scandi style postcard holders to your order. They’re made of soft obeche, a solid natural uncoated wood, and are magnetic - so you’re able to position your postcards in whichever way you think looks best. They have a tapered edge and measure 15cm (W) x 1.6cm (H) and 0.6cm (D). You can see examples in the product photographs.

Our lovely friends in the EU might like to know that have managed to put measures in place to collect taxes at the point of checkout, so purchases from our Etsy store won't be subject to further taxes on arrival in the EU. Not all of our products are on there because some are not eligible to be sold on Etsy but most are. Please be aware that while Etsy are processing sales tax, they are not processing customs fees, so they may still be payable on receipt.

There's more information about customs and VAT here.

EU CUSTOMERS - Subscriptions

Sadly we have had to remove the EU shipping option for subscriptions from our website. There's no practical way for us to prevent fees being charged EVERY time you receive a monthly parcel if you shop via our website. Some of our subscriptions are available in our Etsy store and Etsy will process the sales tax (but not the duties) for us. If you decide to buy a subscription via Etsy then you'll get a message from us suggesting that we send all the months in one go for you to open in turn.
