Do you love watching old movies where the hero or heroine gets ornately written letters, folded intricately, and stamped with wax? I have always been obsessed with those beautiful letters and would love to have one of my own. So I propose a Victorian letter swap. Write a letter (at least 1 page 8 1/2 X 11 sheet) or two if the pages are smaller, use your discretion. The letter itself can be typed but you must endeavor to make it look as victorian as you can.

You can send sealed folded letter, in an envelope, or decorated and then mailed inside a bigger envelope but you must have a letter and envelope (or just letter if you are good enough) that fits this description. Have fun with it, get funky with handwriting, stamping, tea staining. Make it something you would want to receive.

I would prefer everyone to have at least three completed swaps and to have a filled out profile. High ratings only, I will be checking.

Great idea! The content of the letter..shall we write "victorian" and "invent" a kind of story, too as well or shall it be a normal penpal-like letter?

You can write whatever you want inside the letter. Sender's choice.
