  • Hi Bonnie,
    I’ve been reading your blog for ages, but when I saw your font picks, I had to comment. Your faves are all so very you! You can tell so much about a person’s style by the fonts that they use… I love Milk and Cereal and Mr. Wade (but my Christmas fave is Santa’s Sleigh Full, I think from DaFont).

  • hi judith!! aw, you are so sweet! i guess i’m pretty easy to read, huh? anything dainty swirly or swoopy and i’m all over it! also, i LOVE santa’s sleigh full, thank you for sharing!! xox

  • I just saw this on Pinterest! I have a serious font addiction. Thanks for feeding the habit.

  • Help!!!! I have never done this before. How do I get the fonts to show up in my font list after I download?? :)

    • hi abbie! dafont gives a great guide on how exactly to downloand the fonts and put them to use (for either pc or mac). i hope it will help! http://www.dafont.com/faq.php

  • Thank you for sharing these fabulous fonts! I saw this on one of my Pinterest feeds and LOVED it! Fabulous post~

  • Ooooo thank you so much!!!

  • Came across your post via Oh Hello Friend — had to comment on the font question! My husband and I used Good Vibrations (from myfonts.com) for our wedding suite last year :-) It’s a great script font that wasn’t too flowery or stuffy.

  • Thank you so much! Love these fonts!!

  • thank you!!!!

  • thank you! super helpful when you include the direct links below. found you via Pinterest. xx

  • thanks for those beautiful fonts!!!!
    found you via pinterest :)

  • Looooove these! Especially 3,8, and 18. Thanks so much for sharing!! :)

  • Just an FYI – I tried downloading “Before the Rain” and ended up with a virus. I don’t know if I did something wrong, but I wanted to give others a heads up to screen the file before they try to download it!

    • coleen, OH NO! did you download it from dafont? there’s should be clean, but maybe that one wasn’t? so sorry, and thanks for the heads up!

  • These are lovely… thank you for sharing, heading over to check affairs 1 and 2 :D

  • Thanks for sharing these wonderful fonts!

  • I just want to comment on Coleen’s virus note. I was directed to Fonts101.com and it was also trying to get me to download and run some file. I hit cancel of course. I tried to download several others and they all pointed to the Fonts101.com page too. I will try again on dafonts.

    Thanks, and the fonts you picked are lovely!

    • hey jillian and coleen! eeks, i’m not sure why this would happen! i’m using a mac and the links are all fine, i wonder if that could be it? i’m so sorry if it’s caused any trouble!

  • Love the fonts! I followed your link for the atlast greetings font and my antivirus program stopped it from downloading! I am unable to find the font anywhere else! Anyone out there have a virus free version of the font or know where I can find it online?

  • How can I download these fonts?

  • Thank you so much for the link to the fonts! They are just perfect!

  • thanks for these wonderful fonts. luv them!

  • This is so helpful! Thank you!

  • Thanks so much for the fonts.

  • These are so awesome! Thank you so much for sharing. :)

  • Hi, I came to your site from facebook because I am addicted to fonts! Tried to download a couple and this site would not let me unless I agreed to download other stuff like making a video streaming site my home page and other things I did not want! How can I get the fonts without this?

    • hey deborah! are you talking about fonts101? are you using a pc or a mac? i didn’t realized it was giving pc users issues, so you might just do a google search for the fonts you can’t download and go from there. so sorry for the hassle!

  • Hello! You have a beautiful website! I’m having the same problems that others have mentioned – Fonts101 is prompting me to download a program instead of the actual file.

    I’m specifically looking for Milk & Cereal, Baronesse, and Hurried Font. Do you have another link for these? They are not on dafont.com.


    • hi linda! thanks! so sorry you’re having issues! fonts101 doesn’t give me any issues (i’m working on a mac) but i was able to find milk and cereal for you right here. i didn’t come up with a great link for baronesse or hurried font, but try to do a google search for them and click around. you should be able to find it as a download no problem. :)

  • I have had the *font a day* email for a while from this site… Fonts 101. I stopped looking at my emails because at one time it wanted to DL a font loader or something. I just checked to see if this was the same site (saw the daily email font subscription) & it is.I always clean my browsers, temp files, etc… & run a spamware check regularily.So I looked into my Font 101 emails, & all that gunk is no longer added.I may have had some kind of spam that added itself. Also, I never open, I right click the DL button & save it first to my desktop, then open.
    I hope this helps someone :D

    • oh, thanks for the input robin! i’m sure it will help!

  • Well- I wrote to soon. This site wants to DL a spam program to install a font. Do what??? Why???
    Both of my spamware programs caught it before I unzipped them. Its called PUP.BundleInstaller.BI. Grrr…. Im going to do some research into this.
    Sorry Yall

  • We are not the only ones with the installer program problems… visit this thread if you are intersted.http://www.fonts101.com/c/forum/topic/4936/Help__Support/font_installer_files My spam & malware programs both caught them as I tried to DL.I am going to see if these fonts might be elsewhere- thay are so cute!!

  • I have a new web link list for Bonnies wonderful fonts. If you would like a copy please email me privatly at alarmrx2@gmail.com, subject *AFA Fonts*. I am not comfy posting it here w/o Ms Bonnies okay.

    • post on, robin! thanks for doing the research! :)

  • Hi Bonnie

    I have a site that allows you to make your own handwriting fonts (for
    $9.99) but If you don’t want to spend anything I have an app that allows you to write realistic looking “handwritten” letters online. Choosing your own fonts & paper etc. Great way to send a more romantic email to someone who isn’t at a fixed address! Also got a great selection of free handwriting fonts.

    I love your blog btw, beautifully designed!


    • oh thanks andrew! off to check it out..

  • Bonnie,
    Thanks so much fro sharing some of your favorite fonts! Many of them are some of my favorites too and I found a few new ones!

  • Please be careful. I got a virus from trying to install one of these fonts. My hard drive is now affected. Stay away from fonts101.com.

  • Hi Bonnie, i just wanted to say your blog is great! I found it on pinterest whilst searching for free fonts, thank you for these! I have just posted a blog about a header i have made with a link to yours to show where i found the font used. : )

    • wonderful! so nice to meet you, emma-lou!

  • Should I just go to http://www.dafont.com? I also have a PC/Windows. McAfee is telling me that Before the Rain from http://www.fonts101.com is a virus.

  • I also got the virus warning.

  • I just converted my handwriting to font from http://www.fonts101.com i did not get any virus issues? Maybe they fixed their website or something.
