Today’s letter is written on very pretty handmade paper — so delicate it is nearly transparent — and is from Williamsburg, Va.
Thank you for your awesome blog! It’s wonderful that you are encouraging people to dust off their old stationery and start writing again.
I chose this paper because it has always been my favorite. I’ve had it for YEARS. Since college, if not before. I always hated to use it because it was so beautiful. So, here I am with 15-20 year-old paper in my drawer! It’s from Translink Corporation, a paper wholesaler out of Berkeley, CA. It’s organic + recycled, which is another reason it’s so awesome!
Look forward to hearing from you! Lisa
