Incoming mail from Heather

Heather in Scotland made her own envelope and sent this letter and postcard of a “Japanese Lady with a Fan” (1894). When I found the letter in my mailbox it had a plastic envelope covering her mail. I guess Canada Post took the time to make sure that the contents didn’t fall out of the original handmade packaging.

The postcard on this image was originally oil on canvas by George Henry (1858-1943). Heather’s writing is beautiful and it was a surprise to hear from her. Thank you! I’m so happy that this letter made it to me in one piece!
