Inspiration from Lady Sarah...
I have been remiss in posting this lovely incoming mail I received many months ago from Lady Sarah. If you are in the Society, you may already know of Lady Sarah! She is a delightful correspondent and runs the Victorian Letter Writing Guild! I am sorry to say that I brought her unopened letter to an evening cotillion...and so these are unfortunate pictures taken with no natural lighting. Apologies aside, her lovely letter was just so charming. The letter was daintily wrapped in an elegant napkin! I had never thought of using napkins in this manner. This was completely new...but I thought it was absolutely fetching! Not only was her letter such a gift in itself, but she sent along a pretty little napkin set for me in which to try my hand.
Her pretty wax seal matched the roses in the napkin...so pretty!
I recently found time to use the napkin she sent on an outgoing letter.
See? It makes such a pretty picture...I do declare!
I was not in possession of any dainty napkins so this necessitated a trip to London to shop for epistolary napkins! Thankfully I was able to "go" to London without leaving my home...Amazon is such a friend in need.
Keep the inspiration coming! And for those of you who follow me on Instagram:(JaneAustenLetterWritingSociety) please tag me with any incoming or outgoing mail, and I will try to include them in future posts!
New in the shop!
