In the mail....

The theme for illustration Friday this week is "Mail." My favorite kind of mail is a letter with interesting tid bits and surprises hiding inside. It is rare and special to receive a little bit of wonder in the mail that connects you to someone you love who is far away. Emails are convenient and fun too but there is nothing like knowing this very paper was handled by your friend and lovingly written. My least favorite type of mail is obviously unsolicited credit card offers or circulars. Why so many? No matter how many times I try to opt out of junk mail, these still sneak through. oh well. poor tree.

A beautiful illustration and a beautiful sentiment to go with it.

On the junk mail some one suggested this to me, Companies often have a return addresses so putting their letter into a envelope and sending it to that address WITH OUT A STAMP it will cost them money to recieve their own mail back :) I havent tried doing it though as the dog often savages the junk mail.

This is gorgeous. Love the details and all the elements that are swirling out of the letter. I do miss old fashioned letter.
