Sharing Sundays... Royal Mail.

today's Sharing Sunday is pretty darling to me. I'd love for you all to meet my twinkie, my twin sister Marianne. She was really unsure about starting a blog, but as she said in her first post, i've always introduced her to things we've loved most: wrestling, pen pals, Take That (our FAVORITE boyband and where i first fell in love with Robbie Williams), and now perhaps blogging.

Marianne's little corner of the internet is called Royal Mail.

such a fitting name really; like my Italia, England is her heaven on earth. Here's my twinkie when she finally made her dream come true and spent a weekend in London after we graduated from college. (isn't she cute?)


something i also got my twinkie into is Postcrossing. She LOVES it! I'm constantly sending her postcards to send off into the world.

did i mention she luuurves the UK?






please say hello to my twinkie! she was so nervous about starting a blog but i told her it was one of the best decisions i've ever made & she was the one who talked me into it, after all. xoxo


i love you Marz!!!

I received that 'my heart pounds for you' from a postcrossing anglophile... it's obviously popular :)

And of course, like everyone else I'm off to check out your sister's blog :)

ps, I quite like the fact that I live in London (your sister's love) but am moving to Italy this summer (your love). It makes me feel clever and trendy ;)

MICAELA! I can't believe I just saw a Louis Cannizzaro postcard on your blog!!! He is my favorite EVER . . . I even have a very special print he made for me a couple years ago when my sister featured him in the magazine she worked for (Paste Magazine). I LOVE HIM! I have lots of his postcards and will have to send one off to you asap . . .

Your sister is lovely, of course, just like you, and that top picture of you both is too cute to handle!

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

i read the comment on your sidebar about your twinkie being sweeter than you, and if that were true, she'd be a piece of candy.

i keep forgetting to tell you, but when you want html, just let me know! it's what i do! and i'll send an email about the picture sizes.

Jumbleberry Orchard said...

You two look very alike ;-)
