Happy Saturday: Eleven


There's just something special in beautiful handwritten letters.. Receiving a nice letter always makes me happy, and writing back feels like pouring my soul on a paper. I never met most of my penpals, but I am sure they will always be there for me... 
Trust me, there is something special in having a penpal.. Try it, you don't have anything to lose, and you will maybe find a great friend!

This is so right, there really is nothing better than handwritten letters. Though I've never really had a penpal I've always been fond of writing letters to people you care about as a way of communication, it's a good concept!

I agree. I love writing letters and I still do. There's something so special and personal and meaningful about it :)

Hi Marina,
It is really great to have pen-pals. Janine and I have had many over the years. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I agree pen pals are great I have been writting to some of mine for so long I can't remember when we started and I love recieving their letters, I think it is a shame so many young people do not take the time to write letters now days......

That was one of the things I loved when I was little...getting letters from friends and cousins when I was little. I especially loved all the cute stationery!

I remember those days when I had to (hand)write to my friends and receive handwriten letters ...
Nice times!

CourtneyJo of The Everything Soap Blog said...

I went on a site looking for a pen pal a while back and never followed through with any of the people I met. I miss getting hand written letters and parcels in the mail. That's probably why I shop online so much. I send myself stuff.

Happy Holiday Marina,
I nominated you for a Versital award. Please take a look at award rules in my Award blog.

Karina said...

So very true Marina! Penpals are the best because they become some of your closest friends. It's even more exciting when you actually get to meet each other :)

I had a lot of penpals around the world when I was young, about 15. Now, when I'm 51, I again have penpals, and it's great!
Additionally I love old letters and postcards, like the ones in the picture here, because the handwriting and everything in them is so beautiful, isn't it?
