Letters

 “Nothing better than to come home to a beautifully written letter from Paris." -- Joanna F.
Each month I create a letter about Paris. I paint it, copy it and personalize it. Then I mail it off in the post with a pretty stamp. People seem to love getting something other than bills and such. It's good old fashioned mail with a French flair. Since January 2012, I've sent out hundreds of letters. I'm hoping to send thousands.

“I'm just gobsmacked (in a good way)! This idea is fresh and amazing and fun and gorgeous.” -- Sandi W.
In March, I sent old postcards I found at a flea market along with a letter about Angelina's hot chocolate, which is toted as the best hot chocolate in Paris. It's divine.
In May, I wrote about a statue I sit near in Jardin du Luxembourg.I spend a lot of time sitting in parks around Paris. They are great for daydreaming and resting my weary feet. In a few lucky mailings, I added fancy fridge magnets.
In this June mailing, I wrote about being haunted by the ghost of Hemingway, especially at his favorite bookstore, Shakespeare & Co. I added a few pages to each mailing of his memoir about Paris, A Moveable Feast. He once wrote, "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." This is a photo taken by a reader of my letters who is as obsessed with paper as myself.

    “I just received my first letter of the month and it is divine! This is an investment in joy, I tell you! Janice's painting is beautiful and her words are poetic. And the extra goodie she tucked in my envelope was so cute. What a great purchase from a great Etsy store.” -- Melissa M.
