Postal Service.

seriously, i adore love letters from my sweetest blog friends. Whoever thinks happy mail doesn't promote friendship? obviously isn't blessed to connect to such beautiful hearts around the world like i do. i count each of you as true friends that i get to know more and more through letters and the prettiest mail art. I can not thank you enough! xo

from birthday girl claire 
^the prettiest wrapper containing the prettiest written work of Nin. I can't put it down! an M magnet (how i love monograms), and the most perfect card to go with such a gift (i want to frame it!) love you Claire! xoxo

^from Blanca (love the deers!)

^home made cards from Phoenix are my favorite.

^from L. Nicole : traveling journal & a book that is so me (love letters? yes please!)

^i can not tell you how excited i was to get Bianca's envelope of loveliness!!! (not to mention i wish i had her handwriting) Her collage postcards are fabulous - get yours here.

this next inbound was a complete surprise and touched my heart! remember when i told you about my blog crush on Eli And Toggle? look what came in today...
^oh my God right? It was like christmas!!! a heartfelt type written letter, postcards, paper hearts, my favourite diana mini print of hers, and a handmade purse made with italian leather she got while in Italia. AMORE AMORE AMORE!!! Eli & Toggle, you completely made my Monday. Completely! x

^postcard from Janette : i asked her to share her favorite quote from a favourite novel

^care packages from my momma are my favourite esp when it included homemade cookies we appropriately call "chunky monkeys." (She said they were for Max, not me ha) + a Florida mug twinkie got me while on her trip to the beach

^to Farah

^replies to Maria & Caiti (SO happy you got the job!)

^postcard i made with my favourite excerpt to Janette

^postcrossing going to Australia

^reply to Nicola 

^hand made postcard to L. Nicole + a page in the traveling journal that i wrote

^a little back-to-school note for Kary's son Miguelito (one of my favourite things about starting a new school year was school supplies! in fact, me and twinkie always got fun craft packs for birthdays and holidays) Hope you guys had fun in Mexico!

^reply to Blanca

since Tillie got her birthday gift, i can show you the card & what i sent:
^(Til loves Betty Paige) Hard Candy red lippie, a mixed tape, vintage earring/brooch set & a thank-you card for the book she sent to help me find joy in a dark time.

speaking of birthdays...

^the main gift i ordered for Claire came in today (of course!) so this will be on it's way to her tomorrow...

i am blessed. truly blessed. xoxo

Claire Kiefer said...

You are a part of my day that I always look forward to--every day. :)

I totally agree happy mail does promote friendship!
I love the postcrossing card to Australia.

Fabi said...

Oh I wish I would get school supplies mail as well ;)! Now that I am restarting school I feel like being new to it. :) And I am so excited to buy all the stuff for school like new pens and such.

I love your mail :)! You make the envelopes so special :)

Mum's cookies - yum!

And my Mum is just the same, if I tell my Mum that I'm visiting with Daniel she says 'oooh, I'll get a good joint of beef then!'

...and I'll have something meatless from the back of the freezer then - thanks Mum ;-)

I can't wait to send you the magazine, though I fear that my package won't be nearly as pretty as these ones! They're amazing!

Leesh said...

I love Bianca's handwriting too!

Gracie said...

I adore your mail posts. They are always so fun of goodness and loveliness.

I need to get more creative with my envelopes and packaging. It would make them look even better.

And I want a travelling journal now :) That looks awesome!

So many wonderful, beautiful things!
