  10. That is so immensely lovely. I adore vintage etiquette books of all sorts and would relish the chance to read a title like this - on such a timeless subject - from cover to cover.

    Thank you dearly for your many fantastic comments, recently, honey! I adore your idea of a recipe swap as part of our letters and will include one in the next letter I zip off your way. I have quite a collection of recipes, so if there's anything in particular that you're ever looking for, please don't hesitate to ask - I take requests :D


    Wishing you a day as lovely as you are, doll!
