This is beautiful ART!



One thing I used to buy in "the old days" when visiting Italy,was Italian made writing papers, envelopes and cards. ( I think some from Amalfi )

These days it is not often I write or get handwritten letters. But I have some old family letters that I treasure.

I love them, they were chosen and sent, they were cherished (hopefully)... And they give a lovely insight into the early XXth century life!
