wow... how many of you absolutely loved the LOST finale last night? amazing. beautiful. my favorite part? sawyer and the candy machine...
i still can't believe it's the end.
^oh Janette, you make my heart SWOON once again with another sexy Robbie Williams postcard! i met Nettie through postcrossing (she lives in Germany) & we've taken to exchanging postcards still. Isn't it a neat way to get to know someone? she outdid herself again with this beautiful man i have loved since i was 10!
^i always get the cutest handmade postcards from L. Scott
^from a new pen pal Justine (who has a vintage etsy shop btw) & Sophie from Australia
^i won one of lovely rhianne's generous giveaways during polaroid week: this gorgeouspolaroid carnival set from my favourite Diana of City Light on etsy (seriously, i've always been a huge fan! my christmas cards last year all came from her etsy. I'm a City Light groupie) Diana, where oh where did you get the deer tape?! i love it and NEED some. Rhianne, thank you sweet girl for hosting another amazing giveaway!
^another new pen pal Tesra who in her first letter to me said, "i stumbled upon your blog and was working up the courage to write you." Is she not the cutest thing? She sent me along a "cute" (no pun intended) compact mirror, gift bag + tissue paper & a postcard from Michigan. Expect some happy mail your way this week. xo
^another fabulous giveaway win from Caroline. I adore a new book to read and especially those that mean something to another person. I'm sure Max hopes i will learn something too *wink Thank you so much Caroline!!! x
my favourite postcrossings this week:
^Marilyn from Idaho / Vintage Lufthansa airlines ad from Germany
(i've flown Lufthansa before, so i esp. liked this one)
^a thank-you to Cynthia for surprising me with her copy of the book French Milk / thank-you to Kellie (fellow Texan living in Canada)
^the lovely Bianca got my letter so i can show you what i sent. The stripped socks reminded me of her (and Big Bird as i joked with her *wink) & i loved how she took a picture wearing them! if you want to see beautiful mail art, you should def. check out her page.
^a little hello to my green chic Shelly
^postcrossing to japan from an etsy purchase of postcards made out of old vinyl covers.
my M texted me to say she got my little "i love my bestie" package:
(this card totally made me think of Marisa)
i made her a copy of le CDs. (Max asked me what the "B" stood for... i said "bestie"... duh!)
^a vintage tin that reminded me of her (she loves Austen and period pieces when it comes to films) & when i bought these for my j.crewness giveaway, i got M a necklace too.
i also sent letters to Cait & Steph but my darling fiance mailed them for me before i could snap a pic. (isn't he a sweetheart though?)
ALSO... got a very special package from Claire. She had said she was sending me something that was a little me, a little her, a little us. She couldn't have been more right! for that, this exchange deserves it's own post. Claire, you're some kind of wonderful! xoxo
