preserving the lost art of letter writing...

working on...a series of collages, using some of my crumbling, stained old papers and letters. i am using the originals, because that is - well - more original. by now you know i love old junk. one of my favorite things are old handwritten letters. the handwriting is so lovely and i love getting a glimpse into someones' past life. it truly is a lost art. i always wonder how these old letters wound up in some antique shop, where someone like me finds them and takes them home. i have a stack of letters tied up in string, that my husband and i have written to each other from the last twenty years or so. will these end up in an antique shop some day? if they do, i hope someone treasures them and honors them as i feel i am doing here.
