how very cooll

Have you ever watched a movie that is set back in time in the 18th or 19th century and someone in the movie gets a letter and it is sealed like this? Have you ever thought "Wow, how would it be to get mail with a gooey glob of gunk sealing it, and some cool imprint stamped on it, just for me?"

Well, I have, and I got mail yesterday just like that!
Check it out!

Yeah, Larry Bowman, Infantry Surgeon of the Kentucky 2nd Regiment of the Confederate Army sent me a letter and it looks like this. It is dated Oct 1863. I totally dig it.

Pictures of my past few weeks 1860s sewing adventures coming up!
