Love Letter Inspiration


One day last year as crazy as it may sound, I took my Vintage typewriter and suitcase to the beach.

I used Kim Klassen's new Organic texture

It was so much fun and when I saw the photographs, it made me think of some summer long ago when perhaps a homesick lover might be inspired to write a love letter.



Today is Mosaic Monday, and Mary from Little Red House is surely going to inspire us with her dreamy photography.  And there will be many more Mosaics for us to enjoy.



The song for this post is I'll Be Seeing You.


Romance, whether you have your true love to dance with today, or you dance only in your sweet memories, it's wonderful to remember.


Don't forget that today is Texture Tuesday over at Kim Klassen's Cafe.  Today is the Simplicity eDition.

Oh how I love having a typewriter; I have been using it to type out my poems for the little book that I have in my Etsy shop. There is nothing these days like seeing real TYPE on a page. The only problem is where to find the ribbon when it is dry!!! HAVE FUN KAREN! Anita

Most artists wouldn't think it was strange at all to take your typewriter to the beach to take photographs. Sounds perfectly normal to me :) The photographs are fabulous - what an inspired idea! Hugs, Terri
