Snail Mail

I tried my hand at making a goose feather dip pen to write a letter. I don't do this for just anyone, of course. Most people wouldn't care, but I knew my fellow Austen friend would appreciate it. And she did! After writing the letter, the "pen" was pretty much shredded, so I cut it down, and embellished it with some lace, ribbon, and a hot glue "wax" seal.  I did the lacy edging border on parchment paper. I addressed it from "Caroline Bingley" (from Pride & Prejudice) and started it with "Dearest Friend."
