Letters from the 1920s - 1940s from my great grandparents to each other before they married, letters from their parents (my great great grandparents) to them, letters from a great uncle too. I love it! So much to read! #familyhistory #treasures #oldletters

Ma looooongue mission de ce dimanche soir : ranger mes lettres d'imprimerie. Parce qu'elles vont tout vite me resservir 😉 
J'exagère, j'ai fini !

Dated August the 29th, 1955. Letter to my mother from her godmother.
She tells my mother she sent some dresses to her, but they will need some arrangements, but she sets some clear directions: do not remove the sleeves, sleeveless dresses are too scandalous.
She tells too about her husband (the well dressed gentleman of previous pics) being ill for eating egg cream pastries in summer

It's been a year as of last week, and she had been one of my biggest supporters of following my dreams.
This turned up today in amongst old papers.. one of the last letters of hers that I received.
Nan, you always knew when a girl needed a little extra push and a little extra love.
.. Side note, I think I found where my 'artistic abilities' come from! 😉🌞
Other side note, Happy Family Day weekend everyone! ❤

Calafornia (sic). Acrylic and collaged old family letters on canvas.  1908, to whom it may concern,
Otto Anderson has been my gardener for about a year during which I have found him honest, sober, industrious and efficient. He also had charge of cows during which time they have thrived and been healthy.
Very truly yours.  Hire that man! #collage #contemporaryart #abstractart #oldletters #artcurator #dictation #saatchionline #theotherartfair  #lauriegoddard
Soon, you will be mine ✨ ➰

My favourite new buddy. Taken in the midst of going through Monica’s treasure case of old handwritten letters and family photographs.

Letters to Borghild Pedersen (front and back) 
I am very fond of the shape this letter has taken. One more letter sown and ready to be a part of the big piece.

Friend Jennie, 
In compliance with your kind request I'll enroll my name on this fair page. May you ever be surrounded by friends kind and true.  And heaven's richest blessings attend you through life.  And may I be remembered as one whose hopes and fears are similar to your own in regard to the struggle through which our country is passing.

May the dark cloud of war soon disperse and the sunshine of peace spread her cheering rays over our land and nation. The hope of which cheers the heart of your every true friend. 
H.M. Parsons

Abriendo mi caja de recuerdos me topo con este preciado recuerdo, el primer detalle que @manny_ojeda tuvo conmigo y fue la primera vez que salimos un 14 de febrero del 2003, el me dio este llavero de un Monito sonriendo que recuerdo me dijo, siempre que veas este Monito piensa en mí que te estoy sonriendo, también está tarjeta con una mega carta que al leerla no dejaba de sonreír por todas las cosas maravillosas que me escribió, también ese día me dio una rosa blanca, esa primera cita fue tan especial, en ese momento él era solo mi amigo Menny, pero ese día sería el comienzo de nuestra historia de amor ❤️ me encanta tener esta caja donde guardo todas estas cartas que me hacen recordar momentos tan especiales en mi vida 💌 📸 46/365 #photooftheday #picoftheday #fotodeldia #memories #oldletters #ourstory #lovestory #since2003 #15yearstogether

The letter in this photo is dated December 27th 1920 and is a thank you note for somebody’s Christmas present. It was kept folded up inside in one of many old books my mum had collected and kept in the attic. #oldletters #vintagefinds #handwriting #1920s

Saved my favorite for last- I love this one because the message is a little eerie and the front is oh so scandalous!
“[can’t read the top line]
Wish you would send me that face of yours [??] did not get scared the time I got that [???] wish you would [stay over?] as ever yours, M.W.”

I'm not the one to celebrate Valentines day with my husband. Both he and I feel that we don't need a certain day to do something special for each other. Every day is a good enough excuse to show your better half how you feel about them.

For one of my video performances of "extractions (of letters)" I worked with letters kas the title suggests). It was the correspondence between a young couple, Reidun and Øystein. She was studying in Sweden to be a seamstress and he was in the military in Norway. Their letters where so innocent and charming.

During my #performance I would read each letter, write one sentence of each letter on the wall and then sew the envelope with the #letter together. No one will ever be reading the letters again. But what is left is bits and pieces of their story.

Very little remains, even in memory, of the women who wrote these words in blue ink on a yellow legal pad nearly thirty years ago. Within the year she would die. A simple woman led an unimpressive life. But she was intelligent, articulate and filled with faith. I would have liked to have known her better. #BillieAnne #hardlyknewher #paternalgrandmother #artifacts #oldletters #tomymother #differenttimes #sliverofthepast
This letter was written by George Collins to an unnamed cousin. If you look closely you can see he mentioned that the monkeys had arrived at Somerset. This letter was written in 1849. • • •  #somersetplace #nchistoricsites #nchistory #nc #ncculture #visitnc #easternnc #letter #letterwriting #1849 #letters #oldletters #handwriting #communication #penpals #monkeys #monkey #collins
Новый набор открыток "Письма" - это прямо таки эстетический экстаз ☺️ Вот этот засушенный цветок - это не мой декор для фотографии, он напечатан на открытке, но смотрится как живой 😱 Многие открытки с принтами старых писем времен Царской России. Есть европейские. Есть даже открытка с Титаником. Я могу много писать о них, но лучше один раз увидеть. Заходите в сториз, там много красоты! 🤗

Сегодня добавим в магазин! 💌

I’d say no one quite knows me like @ryandarling. Thanks for the incredible, one-of-a-kind gift that speaks to my gothic, past life soul. Who else would get me a stack of letters from the early 1900s and a hand-painted portrait of myself (when I was brunette) as a precious dark angle that is seeing her way through the light. 😍😍😍 #goth #leprotecteur #oldletters #pastlife #psychicabilities #predictingthefuturesince2016 #feelings #artdeco #sthannah #patronsaintofcheese

My maternal grandfather was a man of integrity, dedicated to work and family, so I was very surprised to find a poison-pen letter about him and his family among my grandmother's papers. 
The letter (pictured here) was sent to my great-grandmother on January 4th, 1921, three months before my grandparents' wedding, but it was not taken into consideration.
In fact, at that time, it often happened that
competitors or simply envious sent anonymous letters in the attempt to destroy other people's engagements!

..quando il cielo sembrerà più limpido 
le giornate ormai si allungano 
ma tu non aspettar la sera 
se hai voglia di cantare
..di  vecchie calligrafie e nastri color del cielo.
Piccoli attimi di felicità quotidiani.

Another one of our finds in the house. This is one of the many letters we have found. I found a bunch of them under the floors on the third floor. I sent all of those back to the previous owner. When I reached out to him he told me that his parents wrote back and forth everyday while his father was overseas during WW2. Some of the letters were also from his grandparents - the earliest being 1904. This letter here I found during the kitchen demo -  dated 1917. #oldhouse #oldhouselove #treasures #letters #oldletters #1917

Spending a nostalgic Saturday going through old letters and photos. Terse letters filled with practical advice from my mother, eloquent prose from my father, and affection-filled blue "inland" letters written in my grandfather's shaky hand saying how proud he is of me. Such a treasure trove. Days like this remind me of how lucky I am, and how much love there is in the world #somuchlove #lovenotes #oldletters #writing

When you come across old student letters, while organizing... ❤️ Teaching has its fair share highs and lows, but nurturing another’s soul...priceless. 🍎😊📚 .
