The Art of Letter Writing
~The Victorian Era saw letterwriting as an art form in and of itself )from 1837 - 1901 the period of the reign of Queen Victoria).
~Victorian letter writing Etiquette contained many do's and don'ts as to the proper art of letter writing
~For men, plain paper was suggested and for women a light spritz of scented perfume or using scented ink was sometimes acceptable
~ ribbons, flowery drawings, and interesting colors could be used by women
~ monogrammed letterheads where fashionalble in the victorian era by the end of the nineteenth century
~ It was common to write letters of apology, letters of congratulations gain access into high society with letters of introduction, exchange proper letters of love and letters of business
~ sealing and envelope started by using wax wafers and dried gum, but as time went on colored wax became the fashion
~ Particular care was taken as to Hand-writing styles and it was considered unacceptable to have Blotches, scratched out words, and other signs of haste . these were thought by the victorians to be a lack of care and were frowned upon.

~ blend the essential oil with the vodka ~ take a dropper and some writing ink add a little bit of the scented ink mixture with the dropper bottle to the ink and blend well ~ dark colour inks work better ~ 100 drops of oil added to about 2 ounces of ink

~ If you find the fragrance of the scented ink isn't strong enough try taking a spritzer bootle and filling it wih a mixture of water and sme added essential oil scents ..to lightly spray the writing paper and your envelope with a fragrance to recipient might enjoy
~ Make some time to read about the properties of herbs and meaning of flower essenced to choose the right scent for your writing paper
Letter Writing Poem
Write to me a letter etched by Sunday morning sunlight, centered in a room where returning robins sing of the sea-swung palms and beaches of Florida.
Your chosen words will glint beyond their stony use and point to the history we sense in night, that lore drunk on nocturnal breezes (the polyphony of sleep) when cricket chords mesmerize wall shadows stretched tight from your feet until they forget to be faithful to your body.
When your letter arrives, I will memorize your words, rendering your syntax so finely all will be forgotten except your dancing beyond the ink-stains, a game of pretend really, as if you were always in this room.
