Letter Love

I love receiving letters. I have around 10 penpals maybe more in time. So I thought I would share a few pictures of my letters and things.

This is all the mail I have received this year. I covered one of the letters in butterflies as I don't really want my address in full view =)

Just a little artistic shot of my letters in their box.

A lovely letter from one of my penpals. I'm just showing a few of the ones that added a few things to their letters.

This one made me a little bracelet pictured on the top of the letters. Very sweet.
And this one always write long letters and such. This is just a sampling of my lovely letters. As you can see I love to receive mail and like to write letters. Which goes hand in hand with my obsession with stationary and paper.

I got these from my mum and dad when they went up to Montville for my mum's birthday last month. I love these little vintage advertisements. And the pictures are just so cute.

Also I wanted to make a little post about the store Kikki.K. It is a Swedish design stationary and office products store here in Australia. I love it! The website has many things to look at. And I made a little collage of some of the items available.

So nice to see that the art of letter writing is not dead in the age of emails!!! I used to be good at it but admit i haven't written a letter in a long time now! good on you for doing it, much more personal than an email or text message isn't it!

Hehe, I've found mine... Lying deep beneath a lot of other letters, meaning: I didn't write you for a long time. I'm sorry! I just didn't find the time (see my blog also, long time no update!)

But: I'll come to Australia next month! :) Perhaps we can meet? I'll arrive in Brisbane early the 10th! Then we can talk about all the stuff I wanted to put into the next letter ;)

OMG, so nice that you showed this, because I used to have tons of pen pals in the past. I met nice people...it was really cool. I miss that time...

What lovely, lovely letters! It seems like almost no one writes letters anymore in the digital age. The art of letter writing is such a lovely one and it is so nice to receive a beautiful personal letter in the mail. Thanks for sharing some of yours!
