Sometimes a thought develops and springs forth a new project. Earlier this week Coloradolady asked for a 12 month commitment to do something that will encourage, inspire, communicate, or show gratitude. What was that commitment? FIRST, FIFTH FOREVER is a challenge to write a a tangible letter to someone and let them know that someone cared enough to take the time to send them a greeting.
So my Vintage Thingies for today has to do with letter writing. Well actually it has to do with where you write your letters.
This Drexel Secretary was left in our new home by the sellers.
From the best we can tell it is probably from the late 50's or early 60's.
The thing I love most about this desk is that it reminds me of a similar desk my Dad had when I was growing up. I remember he would sit at his desk and do payroll.
This Lady's Desk was also left by the former owners.
It is so pretty and petite.
The roll top desk is perfect for writing letters and saving letters that are received in the mail.
This last one is very special because it belonged to my husband's grandmother.
It has been in my daughter's room ever since she was a little girl.
She actually made the bulletin board above the desk from an old frame.
So when it comes time to write my letters, I've got lots of places to sit and reflect on who the next recipient will be. Everybody loves to receive mail. Sadly it is fast becoming a dying art.
I am joining Coloradolady at Vintage Thingie Thursday.
