Because I love writing, I have a weakness for fountain pens and a growing dislike of ball point pens. This has been creeping up on me slowly as I didn’t realise until recently how many fountain pens I have. I was talking to my husband about starting a collection of fountain pens and it came to my attention that I already have one! Any way, this is a subtle way of telling you I’ve bought another one.
This is a type of fountain pen I have, for may years, admired from affar and you are probably wondering what I’m going on about. Well here it is, my new (vintage) Sheaffer fountain pen.
There’s a history to this pen and I love it! 🙂
Here is the last of my Christmas mail, there is always some late Christmas mail when things are being posted across the sea. Here is the last of mine. The three wise men from Catarina in Portugal and a lovely Christmas tree from Jia in China.
Look at these lovely stamps.
I’ve also received an acceptance to my Birthday party (which is not till march) I sent my invites out with my Christmas mail. This is from my friends Gail and David from Hertfordshire in UK, Gail always makes her own cards.
Hello everyone, I do hope you had a really amazing Christmas.
Here is some of my Christmas Mail. I received this beautifully Whimsical postcard from Lynn in the USA, it’s really hit the spot, I love this one!….
…and then this lovely frosty envelope from Suzanne in Germany……
….containing a wonderful old fashioned Santa card, a drawing of a happy snowman…
….and a lovely long letter.
Thanks Suzanne. 🙂
The latest Postcrossings to arrive in my mailbox are from Martyna and Krzysiek both in Poland, Anna in Russia and Jacques in Belgium.
I especially like the Christmassy ones. 🙂
I received this lovely parcel from Katja in Germany yesterday.
Chocolate, a handmade card, a lucky card (I forgot to put that in the photo), all topped off with the lovely stamps. Thanks Katja. 🙂
Had these lovely cards through the post this morning. This one from Nelleke in the Netherlands, with these lovely gift tags inside…..
…..and this one from Suzanne also in the Netherlands.
A hand printed card with the pattern all the way round.
I’m going to frame this after Christmas! 🙂
I’ve been sending out more Christmas mail. To Germany and USA I can’t say names or it will spoil the surprise!
I’ve really had fun getting them ready to send! 🙂
