Postal Service.

bliss! i may be eating a fattening honey bun as i type this, after a much needed and amazing massage at acorn spa and salon. {is it bad that i want to ask my masseuse cindy out? ha} i love my husband-to-be!

monday is usually a mail post but since i was WAY TOO EXCITED about my very fine house giveaway {put your name in the hat if you haven't yet!}, i decided to do it today. 

Before we get into this week's love letters, don't forget to play along with our virtual date tomorrow. Email me a pic of your bag & what you keep inside-- here's a little preview of looking inside my pretty Sam Harvey tote... i'll spill it out for you tomorrow! can't wait to see that hopefully i'm not the only one that carries EVERYTHING in my purse. 

^quite possibly my favorite incoming ever... a handmade thank-you card from my bestie's beautiful daughter Mackenzie. Absolutely precious. 

^glittery card from Maria 

^postcrossing from Mexico : i love this Frida portrait!

^speaking of my love for Frida, check out this awesome card from Sandra. You are too cute seestur!

^beautiful envelope of goodies from Nicola that included a vintage postcard from 1945, mark twain photo slide (LOVE!), and postcards for my twinkie that just warmed my heart. She remembered how much Marianne loves England & especially sea horses.  

Nicola, i loved everything. so thoughtful! esp. your typed written letter. 

^i love this art postcard from Rry in Singapore 

^from Hosanna Lee studying in Manchester (how cute is her stationary?)

^from my Carrie who sent me this Jack Kerouac postcard while on a retreat in New England. 

^from Ria (i love italian stamps!)

^from Kristina

^my reply to Mackenzie

^postcard for Rry

^reply to Courtney

^postcard i made steph (her fave photo of robert pattinson... wonder why? ha!)

^belated birthday gift for my college girlfriend Jessie. if you know this sweet girl, you know music is her soul and if she could, she would have been a hippie in the true woodstock era. I found this postcard on etsy & paired it with a vintage frame i got once at an estate sale (the back says, "made in italy" which i  love-- a bit of me, a bit of her). i love you Coody bug!

^thank you to Faiza for this parcel that made my brother smile in Iraq. i joked with faiza that me and marianne are doomed to always think of her when we see giraffe anything. i fell in love with the handmade giraffe pillow though when i saw it on oh little rabbit on etsy.

remember that huge package of stationary goodness Maria sent me? no kind deed should ever go unreturned-- it's how my momma raised me. i sent a thank-you package to her and her daughter Maya.
^as you know i collect coffee mugs and had to get maria this "books to read" mug since her & her 7-year-old daughter love to read. Since it has an erasable marker, i wrote in my book recommendations. To go along with the reading theme, i sent both of them bookmarks- one of a shih-tzu since they rescued a cutie pie named muffin. i also sent along a doily my mom made + a turquoise necklace my auntie made (maria loves turquoise jewelry!) and of course, since i'm a dog mom to 3 puppies, i bought her 2 pups toys. 

"Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company." -Lord Byron

i do so love your company xo

Yay! Can't believe we haven't discussed It Happens Every Day (I peeped it on the mug you sent!)--btw that mug is AMAZING!!!!! Love it! I actually haven't read it yet, but picked it up a year ago at my favorite used bookstore because I was so compelled and heartbroken by the summary--that her husband just fell out of love with her and left her one day. OMG! Did you know that it is written by the woman who plays Detective Stabler's wife on Law and Order SVU??? Haha!

Oh, how I love my frame. I'll be showing it off in a post of my own very soon! :)
Thanks again, my love! xoxo
p.s. you'll be getting a little 'thank you' from me in the mail soon... if you look at my signature, you'll notice I almost signed it "Coody bug" and then changed my mind and signed it "Coody/Jessie" or something like that... as soon as I sealed the envelope I realized what I did. I even asked out loud to no one "Why in the hell did I do that?" haha... I MAY be a little scatterbrained this week!

Gracie said...

This is amazing! I adore that mug! I must get something similar because it's awesome!! I can imagine the little messages I could leave hubby.

And swap wise...thanks for your kinds words. I'm glad you were able to make a new friend :)
