Why thank you Mr Postman

Easter love
A bon voyage postcard my friend Yuko
A hand drawn postcard from Tokyo, lucky me!
Miffy came all the way from Paris!
New Years postcards are my absolute favourite
A wooden postcard from Taiwan
I volunteered at my local hospital and helped some of the disabled patients make postcards. They did a great job!
My best friend kept her feelings concise!

I love sending mail and receiving mail. Writing letters, postcards and assembling packages is such a delight. And there's nothing like the feel of paper and seeing the handwriting of those dearest to you. Ahh the thrill of finding a treasure in your letter box! I especially love stamps from foreign countries. I inherited my Grandmas stamp collection and it is so interesting to see what themes have been popular over the years. Certainly a lot of space travel, the royal family and creatures of the sea!

 I've been really lucky to get lots of wonderful postcards this year from friends on various adventures. If you're in need of a fantastic letter set to dazzle your friends should check out the new Hello Sandwich letter set that came out today. It is ridiculously cute and I can't wait to order a set and blow my friends socks off!
