AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

it's so nice to get a handwritten note in beautiful paper like that. Sometimes I miss real post, now that all friends send emails.

That's a very appealing set! I, too, have notepaper and notelets that I've had for years and not brought myself to use other than very sparingly.

What beautiful stationery!!! Hand written letters are to be treasured ... they are rare.

I have some rainbow stationery, with envelopes, that I saved a few of ... I have had since high school. Considering I had my 30 year HS reunion last year ... I don't mind admitting I have had it for that long!

Thank you for hosing this fun meme! I find myself driving down the road watching for mailboxes - which is good. And bad. I should be paying more attention to oncoming traffic, yes? :=}

I want that stationery! The envelope is so cool! I love getting mail in different colors instead of the normal white!

What nice stationary! I, too, have stationary that is years old. I rarely write a hand-written note these days.

Note to Linda Jacobs: I'd be happy to get any mail at all, other than bills!
