When Diana Vreeland was fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar she wrote a short column each month entitled "Why Don't You..." She filled it with stylish ideas that continue to inspire modern style icons like Kate Spade. I've recently become fascinated by Mrs. Vreeland's life and accomplishments. But, most of all, I love her "Why Don't You..." columns. I thought it might be fun to have my own Why Don't You post each Monday. I hope to offer food for thought and a bit of inspiration to kick off your week.

... mail a thank you note to someone who won't expect it?
... carry a few pretty note cards in your purse? When you receive excellent service, leave a real thank you note behind.
... write personal correspondence in colored ink? Kelly green is so much more cheerful than black.
... save the letters and notes that make your day? They will make you smile every time you read them.
