^when i got back from NYC, this sweet pocket notebook was waiting for me from the always thoughtful Carrie Marie (little notebooks are essentials in my purse to write to-do lists, quotes, etc) i kinda really love that she called twinkie Marzipan (marianne's nickname is Marz). so cute!
^the cutest thank-you card from erin
^i love these penguin postcards, esp this one from Lauren Nicole
^and this postcard from Erin Pugh had me giggling! she had this postcard in a set she bought in london ages ago and thought of me sleeping in until 10 a.m. (or much later, truth be told!) and added, "oh to have those days back! They are long gone for me... Enjoy them while you can!" (illustration by Annie Lawson)
^my first pen pal (we're talking grade school friends!) Sanja is expecting her first baby and we just found out it's a girl! as soon as she told me, i went baby shopping (my favorite, esp. when things are pink and ruffly!) i couldn't resist the aunt onesie!
^reply to my tea loving gorgeous friend Sheba (the cards were a christmas gift from my husband's sister. Hand-made paper from the Himalayas from a managed forest in the hills of Nepal).
^reply to Megan using bits of a jcrew catalog
