And that's forgetting the other amazing things about letters: stationery! I bought some lovely stuff recently from Paperchase but when I opened it, I realised that the back of all of the writing paper was decorated. Very pretty, but seeing as I use about 8 pieces of A5 writing paper when I write a letter, not very helpful if you can't write on both sides! I've had to send some very fat envelopes before I used that up! I know I could make my own paper with my growing rubber stamp collection but my Etsy addiction got in the way first...
I bought these from Ninainvorm as her shop is so pretty I had to buy something:
While looking I came across some other fantastic stationery which is going on my Favourites list for next time:
