Soul Food #75~
I love writing notes..and everything associated with writing notes~
From paper to envelopes,ribbons,seals,stamps,return address labels,ink,pens,pencils,monogrammed,or not..my mom taught me to write thank you notes as a young girl.. it never leaves you..it's a thrill to get a note in the mail..but I think an even thrill to send if not more:)
I have a few letters going out..one of joy..one of sympathy..two w/ old photos in them~
I hope they all arrive to their destination..
The lost art of waiting..there is no instant gratification here..you need the paper..the time to write..to find a stamp..to mail..then the journey~
Sometimes quicker than a wink;) sometimes slower than a snail..:)
But the pleasure is in touching and doing and thinking~
One of my daughters had a cute recent return mail stamp on her Christmas cards..I spoiled myself and ordered one..
You can find many on the net..I bought mine here.. ..
My Rubber Stamp~
So many cute stamps..I got one for J and I..w/ our address..it was hard to chose~:)as you can see..
Her card is really cute too..it came w/ the stamp and there's a calendar on the back~
Mine is like this one..This is a photo from her etsy shop:)
Do you still enjoy sending notes?
In French we have a saying:
Les paroles s'envolent..les écrits restent~
