I had to have this for the homies' room. Had. Starfish make everything better, no?
It's so cheesy cute. I knew I had to have that picture of the Jamster in there. It's one of me faves.
This Paris tin holder dealy-o (that's what it said on the tag when I went to buy it. really) sat empty for months.
It was begging for some old letters. Begging.
My great gramma's letters. What is it about old letters? There's something so. . .je ne sais quoi about these.
Maybe it's the 2 cent stamps. Maybe it's the Chicago stamp from 1920. Maybe that there was no use for zip codes then, apparently (or even a house number or street, I see). Or maybe it's the oh so lovely handwriting. It truly looks like they used a ruler to keep their words straight. Unbelievable.
My great gramma would be sooo disappointed in my penmanship.
Um, can I have s'more of these letters, mom?
