In Victorian times, letter writing was an important part of life to keep in touch with family and friends and articles on this and the tools to use have been featured in Victoria magazine repeatedly. The stationery stores today still carry pretty note cards and writing pads so someone must be buying them.
I'd like to put this question out to fellow bloggers; do you write letters and thank you notes?
I haven't written a letter myself for quite some time but do like to send thank you notes for various circumstances. Let me see; to thank a friend for treating for dinner, for a wonderful evening spent at the home of friends and for the services of someone I felt needed appreciating.
My writing is not as nice as it used to be because I rarely have to do it other than a signature and with fingers that are stiff at times, it's much easier for me to type on my keyboard.
But think of how much more pleasurable it is to find a card or letter in the mailbox addressed to you. And if you are the one doing the writing, there are cute little stickers and shaped hole punches to give your note a special touch. I've even thrown in some of the seasonal sprinkle shapes or lavender buds to delight the recipients of my cards.
So, come on bloggers, I challenge you to dig out your cards or paper and send a note to someone to say how much you enjoy their friendship, invite them to lunch or just to say hello. Put the kettle on and make some tea to sip as you're writing.
