A parcel in the post

Today Rose and I received a satisfyingly enormous package in the mail. How enthralling it was to slice open the seal, and how comforting to unwrap lovingly packaged tokens of home. Thanks Mum! Our loot included a jar of vegemite (for Rose’s sandwiches), two packets of Tim Tams, a copy of Peppermint magazine and the March Country Living, some Cadbury’s Easter eggs, a picture book and bunny, some Twinings tea and some beeswax crayons. Inspired by this, I’m sharing with you some Etsy finds designed to send you into a frenzy of letter writing and parcel sending. After all, there is something dignified about letter writing that emails can not touch. Wouldn’t you agree?

I have now attained the true art of letter-writing, which we are always told is to express on paper exactly what one would say to the same person by word of mouth.

    Love the groovy stationery – have always had a soft spot for nice things to write letters on. You couldn’t possibly do without the vegemite!!! Luv Carol & Gordon
