Unusual and Gorgeous mail

Standard

I had two lovely things put in my mailbox recently.

These beautiful wings from a sadly diseased bird, which I’ve been given to use for an art project

and this beautiful handmade wedding invitation.

I haven’t been invited to a wedding for a for ages, so what to wear 🙂

International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

I’m doing InCoWriMo again this year, and attempting to write a card or a letter every day of the month. I’ve started well. All in the UK so far but I have letters for further afield planned 🙂

First I wrote to Jan in Norfolk with her birthday card and Jeanne in Hertfordshire,

also to my friend Pat in Northants.

I received a my first letter from Emily in Sussex, such a lovely letter which included this beautiful handmade card and I wrote straight back.

The latest are to Jane in Norfolk and Natalie in Kent, both were on the InCoWriMo list.

It is difficult sometimes writing to strangers, but it becomes easier the more you do it 🙂

Very Warm Postcrossings

Standard

Wow, we’re having a bit of a heatwave here in the UK and I’m having trouble keeping up with things. I’m writing my postcards but not managing to share them.

These are very recent arrivals in my mailbox.

These first two are from China and Russia.

These are from the UK and Belarus and unbelievably the first one is a sand sculpture, Wow!

This last one is from Tina in Taiwan and she has send me this lovely handmade card. I especially love handmade! 🙂

Now I’m going to have a very cold drink 🙂

Lots of Postcrossing Cards

Standard

Here are some lovely postcrossing cards that have landed in my mail box recently.

Great to receive a card from Gozde in Turkey as not many cards arrive from there, and Birgit and Bianca in Germany.

These too from John in USA and Vitaly in Russia (that food looks yummy!)

These last two are from Nikki in USA and Cecilia in Italy. Doesn’t that card make you want to visit Italy?!

Christmas Surprise

Standard

Here’s another thing I got through the post for Christmas, from my friend Susanne in Germany. This beautifully decorated story box with Christmas goodies inside.

The story was written on the outside and as I opened the box it continued on the inside.

What a charming thing to receive by mail, hard to photograph, but I did my best 🙂 Thanks Susanne!
