You know I usually have a love/hate relationship with the daily mail. (I love to hate it. hee hee) As of late though, I have had reason to love going to my mail box.
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that Melissa of "Oh My Darling", proposed a project that would return those of us that chose to do so to a time when there was such a thing as writing letter. *gasp*
She organized us in to groups and sent us on our way to write letters to each other.
In the last two weeks or so, I have received a couple through the mail. The first card I received was from Melissa herself. She sent me this lovely card.
The next card I received was from a pen pal in Virginia. She is such a sweet gal. She sent me a whimsical and girlie card.
The next card I received, just this week, from my pen pal in Switzerland. She is a 24 year old with a good heart who joined just so she could improve her English and meet new people. How cool is that?!
I decided to post another photo of the envelope and the paper. The stamps are just fantastic I think.
I do have one other pen pal from Germany but have not heard from her yet. I hope to soon. As soon as I do, I will certainly let you know.
I think it is pure magic getting "real" letters in the mail. There is something about seeing the stamps, the envelopes and of course the written words. They give you a glimpse in to the life of the writer and their personality through the stoke of the pen.
I want to leave you with a thrift store find. Does anyone remember these self folding note cards with the gold stickers?
Hope your weekend and subsequent week is fantastic.
