|Vintage photo and handkerchief E sent in my letter.|
|E decorated one envelope with a bronze-inked stamp.|
|Some vintage stamps from E's collection - kept from her pre-teen years!|
|Vintage advertising illustration - from the 50s or 60s perhaps.|
|The ladylike vintage handkerchief in E's letter reminded me of my Nana and her handbags.|
|I filled in a sketch E made of her "dry creek bed" project and am returning it to her - painted.|
|The outside of my correspondence to E.|
We share a love of animals - particularly cats and dogs. We love paper ephemera and odd household items from the 1940s. We love typewriters. We love old photographs. We love stamps. E knows I love fashion and sewing, so she often sends bits of old patterns. We are bookworms! I have recently discovered E's interest in texture, so I frequently use decorative machine-stitching on her letters.
