  1. So sad the demise of letter writing. How are you going to sprinkle a touch of perfume on an email? It just messes up the keyboard.

    1. Pressing dried flowers into the disc thing on the computer is also a big mistake.

    LOVE THE FABRIC (oops, sorry for shoutingi) of the dresses! Because of the differences of opinion it’s easy to see how important letter writing was!

    1. I used to write and receive letters all the time. I miss those days.

    1. We need some fun now and again. I always have to remind myself that most people in most times are just having normal pleasant days. 🙂 Hope that’s what you’re having!

    I remember snail mail! But even when I sent it, we didn’t do anything this lovely. When I got married, I wanted to do it right. So I wrote out each invitation by hand and folded them as per the linked instructions. I came across one the other day and realized: both the invite and my marriage are antiques.

  4. Those links reminded me — women are not men. I also watched some of a Twilight movie to try and understand female infatuation with it. I did get a couple of laughs, but I kept thinking women are different.

    1. Okay, I got some laughs from Twilight, too. 🙂 I completely understood why young girls liked it. I didn’t understand why women did.

      You made me laugh just now. Men and women definitely are different. I don’t understand why people get upset about it. I think it’s fun.

    Historians have learned so much about people from the past through the letters left behind. I wonder what future historians will look at? Trails of emails? 🙂

    I love the painting above: the anticipation, the soft giggles, the joy over hearing from a beau, perhaps? It’s fun to imagine. That is what I enjoy about paintings – losing myself in imagining what went on behind the captured moment.

    1. Maybe in the dystopian future they’ll think we were cavemen who couldn’t write!

    1. When I was young I went to Ireland by myself and met a bunch of interesting boys. One was a poet and he used to send me love letters and poetry. I didn’t like him like that but it was great to get pages of mail. In fact I carried on a bunch of long distance love affairs through letters. I almost married a guy who lived in a thatched roof cottage, but he had a nervous break down. 🙂
