Messy Desk Vintage Mail Collection

Messy Desk Vintage Mail Collection
I was inspired today to do something a little different. I'm fighting off a bad chest cold so forgive me if my post is short. lol
Showing full collection
(desk is not for sale)



It was great fun making stacks of letter! Each stack contains real letters not just plain paper.




Ink well with feather and glass ink bottle.

6 botanical fern prints
3 rolled real letters
2 sets of tied closed envelopes
1 folded letter with wax seal

5 sets of stacked letters
2 loose glued letters
2 crumpled letters
7 Open envelopes with real letters inside them
(letters are not shown in pictures, but are inside the envelopes)
14 closed folded letters
1 glass bottle of ink
1 inkwell
This collection has been spray protected with sealer to prevent fading and then stained to antique it.

  2. I love the idea of sealed letters that you never will know what is in them. :~)
    I hope you bounce back quickly from your chest cold.
