I do love old envelopes, gorgeous old envelopes. Tiny time capsules, with their beautiful script, stamps and post marks. Encapsulating letters of..... treasured, sad, happy, newsy, boring, poetic, loving or business words. I don't know why I feel compelled to embellish envelopes. Reworking their aged loveliness into a decorative item. The beauty of it's papery age is key to me and all the memories that have long moved into the mists of time... working into the paper, a happy mix of old ephemera, pretty fabrics, hand embroidery and buttons.......lots of buttons, is to me, such a pleasure.
