I met a friend during my recent trip to London and after a delicious meal of tapas at Navarro’s (highly recommended if you find yourself in London), she gave me the most perfect birthday gift. Well, perfect for me, a lover of snail mail, because she gave me a letter opener!
Of course, this isn’t just any letter opener. First, it is brassy, simple and elegant, with ruler markings to help with mail- and paper-art measurements. Second it came in a cool package that said “Long Live Snail Mail”!
P.S. For those of you who’d like one for yourself, she bought it at Anthropologie. It looks like it is no longer available. But they have other divine letter openers if you have a hankering for one.
P.P.S. As I have done with other travel-related posts, I’m going to share a touristy photo at the end of my posts. Here is one of the London Eye from the Westminster Bridge.
