Remember writing letters? And putting a stamp on them, and putting them in the mailbox and putting the flag up so the mailman would know that he needed to pick it up? Okay, so stamps are now racing toward $1, and no one has flags on their mailboxes any more, and no one even uses old fashioned mailboxes any more because creepy people steal mail. BUT! I still maintain that there’s something to be said for hand-written letters.
One of my goals recently has been to write my Grandma more often. It’s quickly becoming something I love to do — putting pen to paper in order to communicate is a lost art, for sure. But how fun is it to pick out beautiful stationery, write out a few lines, and pop that baby in the mail?! And let us not forget about how fun it is to be on the receiving end of a hand-written note.
In honor of Snail Mail, and of the fall-ish weather today, I popped over to Etsy and found some oh-so-lovely stationery at StoriesDivinations shop. She’s got all kinds of adorable cards with vintage illustrations like the ones below.
So let’s do it, folks! Who are you doing to write to? xoxo
