If you’ve never seen their lovely magazine, Chip and Joanna Gaines produce the quarterly The Magnolia Journal, devoted to fresh inspiration for your life and your home. The Spring 2018 issue includes an article on letter-writing.
“Setting aside time to write a letter to loved ones is a tangible way to show them that you care; however, this thoughtful act is just as beneficial to the writer,” the article states, a truth well-known to readers of Mary & Me: A Lasting Link Through Ink.
One suggestion made is to beautify your letters with the use of vintage stamps. Were you aware it is legal to utilize vintage unused postage stamps in mailing letters? I’ve been doing that for more than a year now, ever since I discovered “lots” of vintage stamps on eBay, for less than the face value of the postage. So, not only do my envelopes look more interesting, I’m saving money. My latest find was a lot of stamps with a face value of $50, for just $36. Just type in “discount postage” or “unused postage stamps” if you are interested in getting some stamps for your own use.
