I had a ton of these little baskets from a left over project and knew they’d be perfect for this! I made a few of these the other night and I absolutely love them. I used bird gravel for the stuffing which made these nice and heavy. Used some of my old lace scraps, one of those fabric circles, and one of my lovely antique buttons. I’ll keep you updated as I work on some other styles!
The impeccable handwriting, the joy of receiving one, and the rainy days they got those young women through… it’s hard not to be jealous! Love letters are magical little pieces of history that just aren’t made anymore. Perhaps it’s partly because of modern technology (who really uses snail mail anymore?). It may have something to do with the fact that men don’t travel away for business or in search of work like they used to. Or maybe it’s because courting just isn’t what it used to be. I don’t know about you, but I certainly long for a little more romance in this day and age. https://www.etsy.com/listing/104561532/a-love-letter-from-world-war-ii
