There’s nothing like the possibility of having a shiny new address to have this girl dreaming of getting a gorgeous custom return address stamp!
Back in January, I vowed a bit more letter-writing this year — keeping my friends’ mailboxes alive with surprise, while not totally succumbing to characterless e-communications. And besides that, there’s nothing like seeing your name and address imprinted on a gorgeous envelope with a beautiful custom stamp, instead of those sorry stick-on freebies.
Let’s do some window shopping around Etsy to see what we can find!
Loving this one (ps, for photo credit – each photo links to it’s shop) — the rustic writing and nature makes me think of my fabulous (possible) escape in the country, though the bird-perched-on-powerlines thing might not be what we’re going for (and harkens my dear house-that-wasn’t … Sigh.) Such a cutie, though for under $20, right?
Aren’t these cute?
So modern, almost wedding-y, but totally hip for a city-living couple. Although, I must say, I’m not sure it’ll work give that our new address would be long, so this might not be ideal.
How about this?
Oh my goodness, how much do I love this one.
Wonder if it’d hold names, plus a long address – or even more perfect – a Farm Name!! (must not start worrying about this prematurely … anyone who knows me well knows that naming takes me FOREVER and causes too much stress and anxiety.) But I digress: I love those little roots, so farmy, so modern. It gets a bit Etsy favorite from me, and at $21.95, how could we NOT get one.
Seriously people, give up the tacky stick-ons that arrived in your mailbox and guilted you into donating a few bucks to charity and get yourself a fabulous address stamp. And get down to writing some letters to friends!
