Mail, mail, mail

Thank you so much for your messages of encouragement last week with my to - do list, it got me motivated to dig in and get it done. I didn't think I would have time for letters but I decided to give myself some time off from uni (which inevitably means I will be behind again) the last two afternoons and got some writing done.

A first letter to Shona.

A letter to Emily made from the Frankie paper.

A reply to Lauren, I hope the postie doesn't mind the sideways address but it was the only place it would fit.

 An overdue letter to Kamilla in Poland, envelope courtesy of Bianca.

A reply to a lovely long letter sent by Helen. 

A reply to Micaela.

And remember last week I mentioned the swap between the wonderful Jennifer and myself. This is what I sent out to Jen.


And this is what arrived from Jen on Monday morning. So much gorgeous stationery that I cant wait to send out and my own date stamp, I think I will probably be going a little stamp crazy. We also sent a mixed CD and Jen's had heaps of new music that I hadn't heard before, i love finding new music. Thanks so much Jen for such a fun swap!

My long letter from Helen, aren't the stamps gorgeous?

The lovely Caiti sent me a collection of old photos and postcards that were in the house that she moved into. The old owner didn't want them back so Caiti decided to share them with her blog friends. I loved looking through them all and am going to start sending out some of the postcards soon and am also looking forward to sending a thankyou to Caiti.

A gorgeous postcard from Elaine.

  7. Firstly, Mia you've officially made me blush! And thank you Megan for posting the picture and linking to my little piece of the web :)

    I would imagine Dorothy would probably say something like...

    "Oh my gosh - that woman has my photos! Where are...oh my...she's sending out MY postcards?! And to where, Australia?! My photos and postcards are in another continent!?! Well...isn't that something!"

    I found out a few additional tidbits about Dorothy - so I'll have to make a Dorothy post soon!
