Writing Letters By Hand

stationary photos

When I stumbled upon the stationary section at TK Maxx (Europe’s equal to North America’s TJ Maxx) I was in paper heaven, so I not only got a stationary and note card set, I purchased thank you and hello cards, colour therapy postcards, and a pack of mixed design coordinating papers to make my own cards and envelopes (pictured with my paper cutter).  Also on my 16 for 2016 list is hand written letters so now I’m ready to answer some overdue correspondences as soon as I return from my holiday next week (which is also on my list!).

scintillating thoughts;

hand hugs pen, words woo paper-

a slow dance ensues

I hope you all have a wonderful week and I’ll catch up upon my return.

    • I wonder that too… Doubtful there are too many these days and certain that email does not have the same romance as proper penmanship. It can’t be all about the words but also how they are written, the curves, the dots, the lines and spaces. For me anyway! ❤ ❤ ❤


  1. Great post! That lovely collection of paper is sweeties for the eyes. I used to get love letters from a holiday romance back in the 60s, they were all in Portuguese, so I did not understamd any of them!
    Get the week you need lovely friend. ❤️ Xx

    “Words woo paper.” Loved those words, Melissa. The world has certainly changed since I was young. I use to wait in anticipation for “that letter.” I always write on paper first before I transfer to the computer. It gives me that wonderful feeling that you describe in your haiku. Slow dancing with creativity. 🙂
