Letting the ink dry by bebobee 

I love writing letters long hand. My hand is still cramping from writing this letter in one sitting but I don’t mind at all. Letter writing is definitely not dead or dying to me. I love the idea that there will only ever be one original copy for every page of a handwritten letter- you are either the creator of something entirely original and no one else (not even you!) will be able to recreate it exactly ever again, or you are the owner of the only copy of something in the world. That’s kind of awesome. 

anonymous asked:

Could you please recommend some blogs?

I’m feeling particularly amicable today, so I most surely can: if you like good stuff and a lovely boy, if you like good words, if you like pretty nudes and aren’t ashamed of itif you like wonderful writing, if you like more wonderful writingif you like good stuff in general, more of the goods, if you like pretty vintage things, if you like rad art and a dude with an even radder moustache, if you like art (shameless self promotion idec), pretty things

There you go. That should last you for a while haha

10 books that have stayed with you 。◕‿◕。
