[Stationery Grab Bag from LaPapierre]
Rummaging through my stationery drawer over the weekend I came to the horrifying realisation that my letter-writing paper stocks are getting drastically low.

It's uncommon for me to have little selection when it comes to deciding what stationery I'll use when writing a letter: I like having an abundance of choice, but a tight budget these past few months means that it's been a long time since I purchased anything. A long, long time.

It's not so easy to purchase nice stationery from newsagents and office supply stores as it once was, and it's a struggle to find anything locally. It's at times like these that I am so glad of the internet...

And online shopping...
And (most of all) Etsy!
For an avid letter-writer such a myself, who is also quite partial to pretty things, Etsy brings about such paper envy!

And it's. Just. So. Hard. To. Say. No.
Written correspondence has been a hobby of mine for a long time, & Monday Mail Out is a weekly feature whereby I can share my love for the lost art of letter writing. I hope my experiences will encourage others to send out letters on Monday too, and have them rediscover the joy of sending and receiving mail. If you have a blog, feel free to join in.
THE RED QUEEN GIVEAWAY WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED TOMORROW, TUESDAY 25 OCTOBER (it's been a busy day).
