Special Birthday Mail

A short while ago I had a birthday and was remembered by lots of my friends, here is some of my mail.

I had this lovely handmade card and envelope from Deborah in the USA, I adore the swan decorated envelope.


From Nelleke in the Netherlands I had a super birthday postcard and some soap that smells so nice that I’ve kept it on my desk ever since I received it!


An extra special envelope from Susanne in Germany which opens up to reveal an amazing flower girl!


Can’t wait till my next birthday!

My incoming mail has slowed a bit lately, I think it’s because it’s holiday season, the hot weather has slowed me down too! πŸ™‚
