I went to the post office to check my mail on Friday. I wish I had had my camera with me at the time because it was full and fun! Just look at what I got!
First was a postcrossing postcard from Dalia. It shows the Trakai Island Castle. She says it’s a very old and famous castle in her country. She lives in Lithuania. I love the looks of this place. I immediately thought of how secure it must have been back when it was first built. The water surrounding it would make it hard for enemies to attack unnoticed. Then I thought about how beautiful and relaxing it looks now. I could picture it having a spa or retreat center in it. I’d love to see this place in person.
The next thing I want to you show you today is some rubber stamps I got from “pictureshow” on etsy. I ordered the snail mail stamp and she was kind enough to send me the other little stamp as a thank you! It is a little band of envelopes. I’ve never had a stamp before that wasn’t already adhered to a handle of some kind. This will be interesting and I’ll learn how to do it myself.
I’ve saved the best for last! Just look at this beautiful postcard! I had been visiting the blog Art of a Letter when I saw her post about making these cards. I complemented it in a comment and Elle, the sweet woman, sent me one! It is a treasure! I plan to frame it and hang it up so that I can look at it all the time.
The back is just as fun as the front is beautiful! I love the fun little “Postal Escargo/Via Snail Mail” sticker and also the beautiful line drawing of the coneflowers sticker. So artistic and so lovely. I wish you could see it in person. Now, you have my snail mail address too. Want to mail me something? If you do, be sure to put a return address on it so I can mail back to you.
