Today’s Mail

Wow, I come back from my socially distanced shopping and this is what was in my mail box! I haven’t had so much mail in one day before, apart from maybe on my birthday. Three from IHanna DIY postcard swap 2020, one from a mail art group I belong to and one letter. Thanks everyone for my happy mail day 🙂

Send Shutdown Mail

Thank you to everyone who has sent me mail at this strange time of shutdown and quarantine. I have be trying to send out more mail to make people smile and you’ve certainly done that for me.
here are some of the postcrossing cards I have received recently from UK Germany, Costa Rica, Indonesia and Finland. I am sure I have missed photographing some as I’ve been sending my own.
Do carry on sending if you can and bring a smile to some ones face 🙂

Happy Mail Day

The postman arrived early this morning and bought very happy mail. A lovely letter from Nancy in Iowa USA and some washi tape I ordered from Sweet Supplies Store on Etsy (from Japan) . I love buying from there because she’s very efficient and packages so beautifully!

I can’t wait to use my washi tape 🙂

Lovely Mail

I have received a little bit extra from my postcrossings this week. Nadia from Russia sent me these lovely stamps along with her card and also obviously I got the stamps on the envelope. 🙂

Then I got this lovely first day cover from Sutan in Indonesia along with her card and an information leaflet telling me about the stamp as well.

Very happy 🙂

Lovely Letters

If you send all sorts of mail, you get all sorts of mail in return 🙂

Here are some of my recently received letters from the USA and Italy, lovely words from Elisa, Debbie and Deborah. If you begin to write to some one new, the chances are that you begin a friendship that lasts many years, getting to know them by who they are not what they look like, treasuring the things they tell you about themselves. Why don’t you try it? It doesn’t have to be a long letter, it’s the thought that counts!
