Happy Friday!

I am on on the lookout for a cute correspondence set.  Once upon a time, I had a great big pink set with coordinating floral envelopes.  I imagined it was a set that Anne Shirley herself might have picked out and kept in a secret place, only to use for special occasions.  Writing to Bear certainly qualifies, don't you think?  Maybe a little spritz of perfume a la Marty Maraschino?  Okay, now I'm getting out of hand here.  Correspondence set--yes.  Perfume on the pages--too retro even for me.  Plus, if I was following the example of Ms. Maraschino I'd be writing multiple letters to multiple soliders, and eventually I'd be dropping out of high school just to enter beauty school and then to drop out again at the behest of Frankie Avalon aka the "Teen Angel."  Oh hell no, I'm not going down that road...

Back to what I was saying:  have a great weekend!


  1. Love the fact that you have a shout out to Grease - it's such a great movie!

    Plus I think the idea of old school snail mail is super cute, and very romantic. Women in love have been writing to their soldiers for centuries...
