Summertime is new neighbor season, as folks move in and get settled before going back to school and work. Do you drop in and meet new people next door, with home-baked goodies in hand? I would love to be better about this sort of thing, so I was really inspired by this downloadable, printable card you can attach to a batch of cookies — it's a little tool to help you say, "Welcome to the neighborhood!"
This is a smart, cute card. It has a cheery message for new neighbors, but it also has space to write down a few neighborhood favorites. Parks, restaurants, movie theaters — give your new neighbors some tips along with a loaf of fresh bread or some frozen cookie dough.
This little card was designed by Mique of Thirty Handmade Days, and posted as a guest post over at Beneath My Heart. You can download and print it out yourself here:
I so admire people who are neighborly in this old-fashioned way, and I would love to be more like them.
