there is no touch more personal, more human, than a hand written letter.
i adore cards, notes, swing tags on clothing, place names at tables, messages on blackboards.
anything hand written.
so much soul goes in.
i was lucky enough to receive a parcel in the post yesterday.
from my friend mel. (you can read about her here).
when i opened the express post package, there was the most amazing scent of rosewater and geranium.
an amazing smell.
and a gorgeous hand written note.
etched with ink drawn roses.
with it's crinkled, worn edges,. and gorgeous scent, it is honestly the most perfect piece of paper i have ever owned!
on the other side was a whimsical note.
(hope you don't mind me sharing, mel!)
'a friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand.
is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to most that inhabit the mountain,.....'
i am now wondering how i can work the etching into my blogger header. or make a swing tag business card. or even a whimsical tattoo.
thank you mel!
make someone's day. send a letter.
