Wonderful, creative arch Effie! It is sad that written correspondences has lost favor to emails. There is something so much more personal in a handwritten note- this is beautiful!

My writing has deteriorated so badly since the computer came into my life! But I value handwritten letters so much....even if they are ones from decades ago. Your arch is fabulous!

Patricia said...

What a lovely arch. I haven't received a letter in years! Have a wonderful new week.

Love your graphics! To see some spectacular letter writing-calligraphy from France-check my blog:

I have collected old French paper forever. Not only is the writing lovely (done with a quill!) it is on "rag" which is old, old paper that is still, after 100 years or more, soft as fabric...

Love this arch...and yes, I still write letters...there is nothing nicer than getting a nice newsy letter in the post...as for the bills...they are inevitable...so I used the brown paper from the envelopes in my arty creations...kinda makes the pain of opening them a bit easier ROFL
