Snail Mail Saturday – Special Delivery

I love this vintage stamp, which I found on sarcoptiform’s Flickr. It’s hard to describe why I am still such a strong snail mail devotee, in an age where email and Skype make communication easy and fast. This vintage stamp really evokes the special quality of receiving a letter: seeing your friend’s handwriting on the envelope, the beautifully illustrated stamps, opening the letter to read what your friend took the time to share with you. It’s similar to the slow food movement in that way, made all the more wonderful by the fact that every aspect is thoughtful. A letter shows a special dedication of time, a thoughtfulness that makes it much more meaningful than a casual email.
Have you sent any snail mail this week?

Just a reminder: I’ll be selling all my Cotton & Flax wares at Renegade Holiday Market Los Angeles this weekend, so stop by and say hello if you live nearby!
