The Magic of Mail

Hello once again my friends out in Bloggerville. I hope today is finding you in a good mood and good spirits.
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.

  1. How true, being able to hold a letter in your hands, is like holding the person. You really get a feeling for who they are, because you sense their presence more.

    Very valid point.

  2. I remember those with the gold seals! I used to have a box of stationary and would savor the one's with the gold seals!! Brings back some good memories!! Thanks for reminding me of this!
    Have a great Sunday!!!


  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am now following you.

    I remember how I used to love letters. You can put them in your pocket and carry them with you. You can put them under your pillow and rcall all the words, you can place them in the book you are reading as a book mark. You can cry over them until your tears run the ink. You can wait by the door until the postman brings a love letter from your sweetheart. Yes, letters are wonderful.

  4. How fun is that??? What a great idea!! I can't remember the last time I wrote a letter on real paper....

    I am late, but I am following from Follow Friday Over 40. I would appreciate it if you could stop over and follow me back.
