Years ago, Dawn’s mother sent us a company calendar which featured a drawing of the “Darlington Mansion.” I had tried to contact the company about permission to reprint, but they never responded.

On a whim, we googled the artist, and found her phone number. Dawn contacted her and she gave us permission for “non-commercial purposes.” I’m not sure what that covers, but I’ve already drawn up thank you cards, which look really nice.

Addendum, July 29, 2005: Found another non-commercial use: Wedding invitations! Since we are planning a very small wedding, I bought some nice stationery which my co-workers decorated with ribbon (against my wishes) and which featured the artwork shaded gray. It’s very elegant.
