Wait a minute, Mr. Postman!

Vintage postcards from my own personal collection - aren't they beautiful?

I really love getting letters in the mail, but isn’t it becoming a lost art?
With email, twitter, facebook, texting, and other forms of social media leading the way, the humble letter seems to have taken a back seat in terms of the preferred way to communicate.
I think I’d like to change this; well, within the way I personally communicate with the people I love. How much nicer would it be to flick through a pile of wretched bills and piles of junk mail to find a beautiful hand written letter on delicate paper, maybe a recent photo of a beautiful day out slipped inside? Or to find an invitation to afternoon tea or dinner at a friends’ house, written into a sweet handmade note card?

I think I’ll start today.
Luckily, I’ve got plenty of beautiful Quill & Ink cards to choose from…

This was my new year's resolution. So, this year we made thank you cards and sent them off to all our family members thanking them for a wonderful Christmas. It felt so nice and the family were thrilled :)
