message in a bottle.

i pretty much love all things miniature rhino (remember my gift guide? she did the embroidery!) so when i found out jessica, the lovely lady behind the stitches (and behind the typewriter in that pic up there), was setting up shop with a little letter writing service at homemade:brooklyn weekend before last, i arrived ready to type and spent the afternoon crafting teeny tiny typewritten letters which she mailed for me in teeny tiny bottles adorned with teeny tiny charms. it was all kinds of adorable and reminded me that, man, real mail RULES! don't you agree?? totally upping my letter-writing, care-packaging, card-sending quota, as of now.

I love writing real letters. I don't know about putting them in a bottle, but it's fun to get a little surprise in the mail!

ah, geesh. i meant to get over there to homemade brooklyn and i ran out of time! i love this. real mail totally rules. i have boxes of letters from high school and college... and now all i have is an enormous inbox. sigh. i think it's time to take back those letter writing days.
