If I can make someone smile or perhaps get a smile on MY face when I open my mailbox (which not one day goes by that I don't HOPE to find something FUN popping out of my mailbox) then I think I've done my job and tried to make the world is a BETTER place by making just one person happy! Addresses are sometimes altered for protection so the overall visual of the envelope may or may not be the way it was.

Some Bill Lilly Envelopes...what a treat!

Master Penman, William A. Lilly, aka Bill to me, created several
envelopes which I have since we have had a ten+ year "Pen Pal"
correspondence together since around 2001. My hubby bought
me some hand-turned oblique pens from this master and the rest is history!

or order things from him

Bill's Old English and Engrosser's Script are stunning.

This is my favorite envelope so far... if you really look at it,
the ink looks like it is still sitting ON TOP of the paper.  I also love
how he cuts out paper templates and spray paints the designs on the envelopes
from his own designs.
