une mignonnette – a ‘sweet cutie’ – is a vintage season’s greeting card from the 50’s. It generally involves glitter and often features little birdies and kittens.

'Une mignonnette' is  also a shot-glass size container with a lid used to keep leftover sauces and dressings, fabric lining and a carnation and crushed pepper.
