Mail love

I simply adore mail. I've had dreams about mail (usually piles of it) and wake up excited only to feel disappointed that it was only a dream.

Anyway here's my most recent incoming and outgoing. 

Incoming

A thank you from Jasmine for organising the snail mail group :) So sweet. 


A card and Flare magazine from the wonderful Erin. I have a girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence and I asked if she could send me the mag :) So lovely. 


A letter and two magazines from beautiful Micaela! I also asked Micaela if she could send me those mags and she did. I adore my gorgeous blog friends. 


A letter and bunch of stationery and other bits from a pen pal Rachel. 


A pretty, pretty post card from Claire


One of my best friends Laura is in Europe with her hubs and she sent this post card she created with a personal note and her blog address from her Europe trip. LOVE!


The first letter from a new pen pal Sharni :) 


A great post card and little mini cards from Priya. We did a personal post card with a quote swap. 


My I love lists (Happy mail group swap) partner Hannah's lists :) Maybe a post about that sometime. 


 A letter and pretty earrings from Megan. I love stud earrings.


A letter and a hand sewn mug rug (as Ruth called it). To use when I drink tea and have a snack. Cute. 

Outgoing

This is a an old letter to Micaela but last time it was a only a sneak peak. 


A letter and bits for Alicia


For the book swap co-hosted by Claire of Bicoastally. I'm not sure if my partner has gotten her books yet so this is just a teaser. 


My lists to Hannah


A letter to a new pen pal Simonette. 


Some post cards for a Swap-Bot Quote post card swap. 


The quote I wrote on each post card. I adore Anne Frank. 


A sneak peak for a letter to Claire


The envelope to Claire. I love those book plates so I thought to use it for a mailing label. 

I really love mail and it makes me so happy to receive it and to send it out. I do have a lot of letters and things to catch up on though so I will started :)
