I received a beautiful piece of correspondence in the mail today. The envelope is soft cotton with the most perfect soft wrinkles and folds. It has a waxed seal with the initial "F" and hand glued rhinestones that create two lovely flowers. How refreshing to receive something so beautiful! It made me take pause - what is it that makes beautiful mail so special? First and foremost, I appreciate the thoughts and efforts made especially for Faerie Magazine. And I know it was initally and thoroughly created specifically for Faerie Magazine because it had our name on the other side! The contents were already sealed when the envelope was decorated! I want to send beautiful letters in beautiful envelopes too! I began to think - how could we begin a 'beautiful things' pen pal club? How many people would be interested? How old fashioned, and fun!
