Some friends and I were discussing our collections of stationery recently, and I snapped this photo of some of mine to show them. I have always enjoyed writing letters and had many pen pals when I was a young girl. I like to use pretty pens (often pink!) and co-ordinating stickers....... Do you enjoy corresponding the old-fashioned way?

I love writing paper, notes cares and pens, actually anything to do with writing letters. I have some wonderful penpals that I met on a Victorian letter writing site and it's been so wonderful getting to know these ladies.

You have a beautiful blog here and I will definitely be back often!

As a young child I had a pen pal as well. What a joy it was to wait as the mailman would come and he actually had a letter addressed to me!! We have started a letter-writing group over at my blog, if you are interested we would love to have you. As a matter of fact, I am going to go searching for some "perfect" stationery today:)

What a beautiful stationary collection! Love it. Thanks for leaving me a comment over at knitting kat....I just love the Carolyn Westbrook book called 'Home'. It is a delight! Hope you won your bid for it on ebay. ~~I do have a pen-pal that I owe a letter to. I am such a procrastinator ..lol.

I'd like to be your pen pal and be able to receive some of that beautiful paper!! (smile) Gwen P.S. By the way, I am in the same writing group with Sandra. Now doesn't that make you want to join??

What a beautiful blog you have! Yes, I LOVE to correspond the old fashioned way and I'm teaching my girls to do the same.

I also belong to the same Victorian Letter Writing group that Sandra and Gwen do. :)

I love your stationery! And ditto on the writing group - although I haven't written any of my letters yet! We've had revival at church this week and things have been just a little bit busy!
