Postal Service.












^some love from Virginia from my bff edward (he sent the postcard, along with the VA magnet that now hangs on my fridge... above my twinkie and niece on marianne's beautiful wedding day!)


^cute card from ria in italia

^amazing beca sent me this gorgeous clutch/wallet (also! she has an equally amazing etsy shop-- spring sale, 50% on some items like these miniature twin deers i want to get for me & twinkie!)

^postcrossing from ukraine

 ^birthday gifts from Karolina (she made those earrings... so pretty! and the rabbit card as well)


^a sweetly belated wedding card + letter (i loved my tea stash!) from sweet sheba
^a lovely little note from erin























^a nice catch up from courtney (adorable stationary, no?) her husband was my camera guy when we were both working at the news station in wichita falls, tx. (next to her letter is my reply)

























^i was so excited when i found another one of these "pocket change" holders while out thrifting. the one on the right was a stocking stuffer i got my husband for christmas and the one on the left i sent to Edward with a note to save his pocket change so he could come visit me.

^postcard for Shawna (we met on postcrossing-- she actually lived in el paso a year ago so we decided to keep in touch. I sent this card telling her how much i miss the rain!)

^a thank-you card i made Kitty (i wish i could take credit for the tom hanks idea, but alas-- credit here. genius!) because i was SO happy to have won her Butch Anthony giveaway. Lovies, it is SO pretty! and so perfect in our bedroom.

^my reply for karolina who just got herself engaged! i made her the card, along with this beautiful handmade brooch (i love the glitter) i got from karina's sweet mom's new etsy shop Ninfa Designs.


i love going to my mailbox and my husband thinks i'm weird that i love going to the post office (even if it's busy).

As always, I love your mail, both in and out. You're such a thoughtful friend. I've been missing writing letters lately--I have hardly been home during waking hours. :( It's one of the things I can't wait to get back to! I have so many letters to send.

I like going to my mail box but the post office not so much. I do like the post office in the city because it's in a lovely old building.

So much wonderful mail as usual!

Happy as always! xoxo

Only recently have I been going a little post office crazy - Been sending so many international mails out. And I must say it's one of the most wonderful feeling ever. To stick the stamps, and drop it into the post box, knowing that it's on its way to someone amazing across the seas. Lovely. And don't even get me started on receiving mail packages. I mean, who doesn't love a snail mail surprise on any day?! x
