This one is coming from that delightful Pacific Northwest state that goes by the name of Washington. And first off, I love the elegant cursive writing of the address.
Ann, of Washington, scrawled her fabulous answer on delightfully quaint stationery to the past Question of the Week: Why are you interested in this project? What is it that you like (or don’t like) about letter writing?

Dear Lovely Handwritten Notes,
What a fun project! I have always loved stationery and probably got my letter writing interest from my grandmother. She wrote letters her whole life and as she got older, the one thing we gave her for gifts was stationery.
My letter writing goes up and down, but I often send notes to my nieces and nephews, kids from church, and a sister who has lived overseas (and in DC) quite a bit. I also write once or twice a week to a senior woman who lives in a nursing home. I’m not working at the moment, so have more time to write notes.
Good luck with your project! I’m looking forward to more questions of the week. They might provide inspiration for my letter writing.
I am also thinking about hosting a letter writing social sometime. I’ve read a little about these events and they sound like a lot of fun.
I’m really enjoying hearing about how many people’s letter writing interests stem from pieces of their family history. It is quite beautiful indeed.
I also love that Ann writes to a woman who lives in a nursing home. As I’ve been sketching out plans for this project, I have considered teaming with a nursing home or a nonprofit serving people in need in order to target individuals who could really benefit from receiving a letter of cheer.
Thank you so much for writing in, Ann! I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the Questions of the Week. Expect a handwritten note your way as well!
