Techless Tuesday - Letter Box

Sometimes, a handwritten note or letter is a must.
Since it doesn't happen often, 
I decided to make a ritual of the process.

This is my letter box. 
I re-purposed a black simulation snake skin DVD box. 
The butterfly is a shiny neon purple/pink. 
The colors fluctuate depending on the light.

The insert is a deep red satin. 
The square depression holds folded note cards, 
my diamond and silver Disney pen 
(I collect pens. This was from my daughter.)
and the pink and rhinestone Martha Stewart folding bone. 
(Don't tell anyone I own something from Martha Stewart, especially my mother.)

The box is lined with black and white flocked paper. 
The insert lifts out with the baby pink ribbons
for space to hold stationary and stamps.

My note cards are plain, cream, textured and heavy. 
I punch a little butterfly in the bottom right corner
and I have personalized stationary.


  1. You have real taste, refinement!

    Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.

  2. nice...a personal handwritten note goes a long way...we dont get much mail these days beyond bills...its always such a treat to something else....

  3. A beautiful way to preserve and practice the nearly lost art of the handwritten note.

  4. That's gorgeous! Is it an insult to call an artistic person crafty? Because this is both artistic and crafty.
