^from my darling Sanja (my first pen pal when we were both 12) : gorgeous ruffled purse/clutch and a pretty scarf (purple is max's fave colour on me). virginia's autumn is perfect for wearing it! she even put her perfume on it. beautiful! inside the purse were teas she drinks when she's cold and Dexter energizing bon bons for when i work too hard. i love you Sanja! xo

^i lurved this record envie from Alyssa! Madonna & one of my favourite songs, no less.
she even included the vinyl. awesome!

^also awesome was this photograph tina in canada wrote on the back of and sent as a postcard. This is from a trip to St. Lucia. (i also like that me and tina met through postcrossing and that she said our correspondence made her excited about snail mail again! to me, that means a lot)

^another thing that came in the mail today was this pretty giveaway win! I couldn't believe when my name was picked for Annie Christina's Busy Bee Lauren giveaway. Thank you both ladies! i always feel like a million bucks if i should win a giveaway and am always so grateful. 

^a little thankyou to my Lindsey Birdy for the fabulous Mac/Chanel!/Estee makeup goodies she sent : because she loves flowers, print by Burnt Feather & vintage brooch, and a vintage Parisian photograph postcard packaged in The King & I record cover (see Alyssa? great minds think alike!)

^the card i used for Erin... very Erin

speaking of love letters... i might have already bought my Christmas cards! don't worry, i'll wait til december 1st atleast to send them but i'm just saying. I might be one of those girls that secretly smiles when Christmas decorations go up in October and sings along to the radio station that plays nothing but Christmas songs!

Me too! I love Christmas and I've got some Christmas cards as well. I'm already planning how to wrap my gifts and my gift list, decorations etc...

Seeing your mail makes me inspired again to do mine. Your letter in next in my pile. I've decorated the envie already :)

Micaela said...

oh no danielle! it was a record that i picked up at goodwill. I wish i would have known!!! they have a lot of records at our estate specialists-- we'll scour them til we find one!

i had a good monday off -- rainy weather, is there any better day to have off? i just enjoyed a greek salad from OIP! yum

ugh, i feel bad about using a record you love for an envie. See? it's these things your girl fiance should know about! :)

Sandy a la Mode said...

Belen said...

i ADORE that quote by hepburn!!!!!

Erin said...

I am most definitely one of those girls that smiles when the first Christmas song hits the airwaves (I might even get a bit teary-eyed...)

I bought my cards in London this summer. Though I did pick up a special one for you a few weeks ago- I couldn't resist it! It just had Micaela written all over it!

Loved our skype date today so much! Maybe next time you can see Dylan. He feels the same about Starbucks as his little brother does!

I got your email. It made me grin from ear to ear! And I have to say, I love the card you've sent me already, and it's not even here yet. I just know.

E xoxo

Alyssa said...

Great minds indeed!!!

So glad it made it without extra postal stickers, they thought i was crazy being so demanding to fit them all on the back :)

Farah said...
