Where outgoing letters await their journey

Where outgoing letters await their journey

Ang of A Year of Letters recently asked where letter-writers put their outgoing mail when awaiting the letter carrier. I told her my method of lining them up along the stairs, between both the front and the back doors, and she asked for a picture. Okay, I finally got around to doing it! Currently there's nothing sitting there, though, because I've already mailed last night's fare. I didn't want to miss the last Saturday pickup today before the long weekend.

  1. Cute idea. This would be a perfect place to display some of your incoming "mail art." I'll bet you get some wonderful letters that are works of art.

  4. I love this picture! What a great place to put them. It will be interesting to read where other peoples letters wait before they go on their journey. Mine sit beside my sewing box in my studio, before making their way downstairs, where they sit on the dresser before finally going out of the door.
