Stationary & Stationery

The other day, I had a very interesting observation.  When you google image search stationary or stationery both results are essentially all cards.  I was writing something about stationery (the card version) and couldn’t remember quite how to spell it.  It’s no secret that I’m not a very good speller, I rely on spell check a lot more than I should.  I googled both versions of the word & both had the same results.  I knew one of them was wrong so I consulted and figured I would share a mini grammer lesson with you!

Stationary is defined (according to as “standing still; not moving.”

The puppy was stationary when he was told to sit down. 

Stationery on the hand, is defined as “writing paper; writing materials, as pens, pencils, paper and envelopes.”

Julie purchased special stationery for her wedding thank you notes.

How cute is this Kate Spade Signed, Sealed & Delivered stationery??
