Letter Love

Beautiful work of Ellie

Whilst I've had this blog for over a year, I've really (as you can see from my blogs) only been getting in to it since the new year. I am now addicted. Having been lost in a world-wind of cutting from blog-to-blog-to-blog for some hours, somehow I came across Ellie's. It's a beautiful blog and a must view!
Through her love of letters and post she's inspired me to get back into the beauty of this (sadly deprived) practice.
I began searching for old cards and came across an old Winnie the Pooh notelets box. Having decided I'd perhaps grown out of pooh bear and tigger I decided to recover it...

Having sifted through my craft box I found a number of beautiful vintage postcards and notelets which I filled it with..and then got myself down to the post office to buy some stamps!

I even made a few myself...

So, I've decided (whilst, perhaps it's a little late for new years resolutions) for a spring resolution (does that work?!) I'm going to stop chatting on facebook and texting so much and send some lovely post instead! Thank you Ellie!


  1. I'm sure spring resolutions are fine (I could be doing with making some myself!).

    Just came across your fine blog. Love your knitted patchwork blanket you showed in a post below. I reckon that might be my next project, I've always fancied doing one.

  2. Thank you! Post over facebook is defiantly a good choice! x

  3. Loo: Thank you! Being a beginner it's certainly been something easy for me to get in to... and it seems to be going ok..Hurrah! I LOVE your cardboard stag kit...where did you get him from?! I need one of those in my life!! x

    Ellie: You're so welcome! I'm a bit of an insomniac these days (a mix of so much uni work to do/ stress/ not doing any of the said uni work...vicious circle!)and ended up writing like 5 last night! Fingers crossed I get something back! x

  4. Hi, you asked about the cardboard stag kit. I bought it from a shop near me which I noticed, today, is no longer there! Boo hoo. I think you can get a kit from the internet - Amazon - for one, just type in cardboard stag, I think! I didn't buy from Amazon, though, because it was too expensive.
