Can you guess what came in this yesterday?
A genuine, five-piece Hollywood Loom!
Made in 1936, the instructions state:
"Weave in your hand!
Blouses, hats, purses, afghans can all be woven right in your hand!"
This is what was made... lavendar sachets!
They are going in the Etsy shop for Christmas presents.
Talk about delicious!
One of the things I loved most about the package was the lovely note inserted from the seller. There is nothing quite like a handwritten note, is there? Can you remember waiting for the mail and hoping something would be there for you? I had penpals all over the country and looked forward to seeing the stamps and postmarks.
As a scholar, I regret we are going to more electronic communication. How will we ever know what folks were thinking and writing in 100 years? My friend Corrie writes me letters even though we live just a few miles apart. As a seven-year-old, she loves the process of writing, stamping, and mailing the letter. As a 55-year-old, I love getting 'em!
Do you write letters?
