I thought I would do a mail post. I haven't got tons of mail but I haven't shared any of the outgoing mail. And I just a little bit of incoming too. A lot of the outgoing mail I haven't shared because I wait until they receive it so I can show the contents.

The back of the package from beautiful Micaela

The contents inside. I love how she leaves little post it notes.

She gave us some gorgeous tea towels as a wedding/housewarming gift. She's the sweetest!

This is from my German friend who I met back in high school when he was here for a school exchange. He's been back to Australia twice since then and I still haven't gone to visit him in Germany. One day.


I don't think I ever showed what I gave for the stationery swap Megan organised. This is my package to Fallon.

This was for Megan.

This was the giveaway package to Belen.

A little something for Nicole. It was a little gift for her getting engaged.

My little package to Micaela.

This is for Tiffany. We both love bows!

This is for Julia. It was a letter and a very belated bday gift.

This is my most recent letter I haven't quite sent yet to Joana. Which is why it's just the outside of the letter.

I have a lot of letters and bits to catch up on and I will do it soon. Lately, it feels like I want to do so much including... using my letterpress (I can't believe I haven't used it yet), learning photography, doing my Etsy shop items, I want to learn to knit and crochet, I want to do sewing again, I want to sand down an old table and repaint it, I really want to decorate this house...

But anyway, I hope you have a fantastic rest of week. And I hope I can play around with my hair and see if I can do those braids.

Jealous! I wish I was getting mail like that! :P

I adore letter writing but hardly have the time to do so. As for crochet, can't sew to save my life. But my mother masters it well. I also adore beautiful stationary. Enjoy writing! ;-)

Sara said...

omg I need to spread some snail love! I need to- it makes everyone feel special!

Cassie said...

Gracie I love your little list of things you wish to do at the end of this post - it screams your season to me - very Autumn/Winter activities and served to remind me why I love that time of year too really.

I imagine your hair would look very pretty in braids too - do show if you do.

Kristen said...

Hello my sweet friend- I have been so busy with school that I haven't had much time to leave comments for you and say hello.
But please do email me your address when you have time. And your new last name :)
I know I had it at one point, but things have been so crazy I don't know where I've put it.

Wow, look at all that amazing mail! The most exciting thing I have received in the post lately is a bank statment :(

I spy some Kikki K post-it notes too! My little sister is in Sydney at the moment and I asked (aka forced) her to go to the 'White by Kikki K' store for me. I desperately want to go there!
