A Typewriter and a Suitcase of Letters

Why aren’t letters popular anymore? Or typewriters? I’m so sad these things have become just another vintage fun item, instead of an everyday.

So as I was feeling nostalgic I decided to whip out my typewriter (which is like at least 10 pounds it seems like) and take out my grandparents old suitcase of letters.

I spent a lot of time sitting on the grass with the letters, typewriter, and my camera, but didn’t actually get many pictures as I was so caught up studying the handwriting, stamps and words of the letters.

One interesting thing I noticed is that my grandfather had nicer handwriting than almost all the women I know, like truly impressive lovely handwriting.

Why isn’t handwriting important anymore? That’s one thing I need to work on. Or how about this, look at this lovely heading;

“Esther Sweetheart,’ and look at that lovely handwriting! And this letter is from the 1940s!

These letters are so sweet, and sometimes they are really boring, and other times simply romantic. They wrote letters to each other forever it seems like while my Grandpa was serving in World War II.That’s all the comments I have, so enjoy these pictures.

Spring Whisperings

Ahhhh spring time! I just love spring time. If only it lasted longer than a week in these parts, then I would be really happy! Anyways, the trees are blossoming, the flowers are popping out of the ground, and the earth looks very happy right now.

I’m happy to say that I (finally) took every single one of these pictures! Yay! Also, special thanks to ‘Ilse’ for posing 🙂

Our little family orchard’s plum trees are blossoming and it adds such joy to the scenery! I noticed them a Saturday morning (I don’t go out to our orchard very often) and ran out just as our fellowship was arriving to take pictures, and because I was hurrying, they didn’t turn out all that great, but oh well!

My sister and I also went on a bike ride, and I decided as we were pedaling out the driveway that I should bring my camera and snapped pictures the whole ride. I took some pretty cool pictures, but for the life of me they won’t upload!!

And then my friend told me about the orchard in bloom down her street. The almond trees were absolutely amazing and gorgeous! We took pictures of each other and I took tons of pictures of the lovely trees.
