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! πŸ™‚

Now I’m going to have a very cold drink πŸ™‚

February – International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

As it says in my header, February is ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’. To take part in this you commit to sending a letter, card or note to someone every day during the month. It’s not as expensive as it sounds, you can write local and hand deliver if you want. What a lovely challenge. I’m doing good so far!

1st & 2nd Feb.

Christmas Surprise

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 πŸ™‚ Thanks Susanne!
