Addressing Envelopes

Morning all, it is Remembrance Sunday here in the UK, a time for reflection and remembrance of all those who have died or been wounded in conflict defending our freedom.  Take a moment out of your day just to think quietly and give thanks for their bravery.

Completely changing the subject, have you ever wondered how to address an envelope correctly?  I was trying to work out the correct form of address for two unmarried sisters.  I thought I knew what it was, and then Toad planted a seed of doubt, so I had a Google and came away more confused than ever.  Plenty of information there for addressing the aristocracy, but very little for mere mortals.  Is this a sign of the times?  Do we not write letters any more, or simply not care about how they are addressed?  For work I have to get it right, and it has become a habit even with personal correspondence.  After a bit more trawling, I discovered that my first instinct was correct, so perhaps my education wasn't wasted after all!

I have another Christmas card for you today:

This is Wild Rose Studio's Bluebell Looking
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are from a Forever Friends pad
Merry Christmas die from Elizabeth Craft Designs Inc.
Bow die from Little Inkers
Pearl gem from stash

Here's the arty soft focus shot (I keep finding new bits on the photo editiing suite)

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Hugs, Squirrel xx
