Monday Mail Out: Partial to parchments...

[Gentleman note paper from LaPapierre]

"What a wonderful thing is the mail, capable of conveying across continents a warm human hand-clasp".  (Author Unknown)

My stationery orders from Etsy arrived on Friday, so of course I wanted to write a bundle of letters over the weekend using my new stock of pretty, pretty writing paper. But then Sunday afternoon was spent babysitting my nephew (he is 8 years old), so only one letter went out in today's post. I don't mind, though: My nephew, SJ and myself had a wonderful afternoon of playing cards ~ games such as Go Fish!, Snap!, and Sausage (SJ and I not having played Sausage before had to learn from my nephew: It was quite the hoot!).

With this morning's mail I also sent a First Day of Issue MaxiCard to Brittan. I hope she likes it!

I have another MaxiCard here for StoneZebra, but am unable to contact them, so StoneZebra, if you're reading this, please drop me an email: sorcha (dot) sidhe (at) gmail (dot) com, and I will get it in the post for you straight away!

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.


  1. A letter written on my School Boy stationery, yay! :D

    Oh and Lizzlebug's stationery is nice, I recently ordered a set from her and I received it today! I love the one you got with the victorian ladies with hats, I might have to get a set of these for myself eventually...

  2. Oh yes, Lizzlebug's stationery is lovely. I was so pleased to find her Victoriana themed stuff ~ I love Victorian fashion, so the hats and shoes were a real treat! I'm sure if you made some too it'd end up in my stationery drawer... ;)
