Hey everyone, how’s it going? Hope you’re doing well.
I have a short incoming mail post from May for you today. I did actually get a lot of mail in the month of May but most of it was because I spent a lot of money on online shops and as I do prefer to keep this post relating more to pen pals than my inability to keep money in my bank account, I won’t show that stuff off here (that’s what Instagram is for!)
So, mail from pen pals. Let’s kick things off with some colourful mail from America and New Zealand:
And a lovely postcard from South Africa sent by Stephanie:
Getting a postcard was nice. This one was sent by a pen pal but it did remind me that I should log back into Postcrossing one of these days and hit that ‘send a postcard’ button a few times. I haven’t sent any postcards since the cost of stamps went up and I do miss getting short and simple messages in the post!
But moving on from my desire for postcards, take a look here at the lovely, lovely, lovely (is that enough lovelies?) happy mail package I got from Sarah over in Canada:
She sent stickers, a little notebook and a really nice postcard! You’ll have seen the planner stickers already because I’ve already used some of them in my planner – they’re absolutely gorgeous! I love the copper shine to them. They’re great stickers to use for special events (watching Eurovision definitely counted as a special event!).
Let’s see, what to show next…oh, here’s a really colourful piece of mail sent by Michele from America:
How nice is that succulent stamp?
And last but certainly not least, I got another lovely (ok, yes, I say lovely a lot, I’m short on adjectives!) piece of mail, this time from the wonderful Cobs:
This one wasn’t a surprise to get but that didn’t diminish how fun it was to get it. Cobs made this amazing bookmark card last month and had a giveaway for it which I happened to win!
And as always, to wrap up my incoming mail from the month, here’s the stamps that I remembered to photograph:
Which is your favourite?
