"I loved spending time there, joining Nonna Valentina in her domestic activities or simply standing next to her dressing table, watching her write notes and letters."

I picked up this letter ages ago. I adore how the letter just folds, gets taped and become the envelope. It tells of Germaine's tales of living in Ecuador. She writes to her friend Annelise in England. Her letter opens with "Many happy returns of the day." How lovely!

In June we were in southern Italy shooting a few weddings. This gorgeous writing set was the party favour at one wedding on the Amalfi coast. It included handmade paper, a glass pen and turquoise ink. It's my favourite party favour of all time!
P.S. You can see some photos from the wedding here.
