Tied with a ribbon and sealed with wax

Ribbon and wax

This beauty from the marvelous Catwrangler came inside the envelope like this - what a lovely idea! This way the ribbon and the wax stay perfectly intact. I had to photograph this one before I even read it, because I knew opening it would break the seal, and I could never get the ribbon back so pretty again.

I'd never seen this cat design on an envelope before - is the kitty holding a stick or chopsticks in its mouth?

Send a letter, receive a letter

I love this rubber stamp. It seems so obvious: "Send a letter, receive a letter," but it's one of those simple wisdom sort of things that's great to keep repeating, like a mantra.

This was a great letter to read as well as to unwrap.
