Unusual and Gorgeous mail

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 πŸ™‚

Outgoing Postcrossing Cards

Oooh, I didn’t realise how long it has been since I shared some mail with you. I was doing some art ready for an art exhibition which was taking up a lot of time. O have still been sending and receiving mail though so have lots to show you! πŸ™‚

These postcards have gone to Min Cheng in Taiwan and Ingred in Netherlands,

W Chang Australia and Heleena Finland

and Zong He in China and Marina in France.

What a super thing it is to be able to touch peoples lives across the world without using social media. Handwriting a note is always special! πŸ™‚

Lots of Postcrossing Cards

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?!
