a message from Singapore and St. Petersburg

Another two beautiful letters I received lately but I hadn't uploaded them on my blog yet. A beautiful letter with a clay tag from Corey and a wonderful letter from Dasha. I love the vintage Russian cards she'd included! I'll try to answer as fast as possible!

Last month's incoming and outgoing mail

a productive morning

My darling Pien was still asleep so I took the time and sat down to write some letters! While it was raining (a lot!) outside I warmed myself with a nice cup of Green Chai  When it stops raining I'll go out with Pien for a walk to the mailbox near the park :).  >>>>>>>>>> ****

a message from Doesburg and Breda

After a long day at work I came home and sat down with a cup of tea, ready to watch one more episode of Homeland with M. But then I noticed these sweet letters on the table! Thank you Rinske and Anne! Anne is always such a fast writer. It's nice to write with some one that often, it makes the contact more alive and close by :). But of course, after I read the letters we watched one more episode of Homeland! It's such an exciting series!

a gift

This morning I had the time to sit down and make an ex libris stamp for a dear colleague! Celebrating her birthday and graduation, hooray! Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the stamp.. stupid me.. but maybe she'll take a picture for me ;) Anyone else interested in a personal stamp?! :D.

sweet sunshine

Oh my darling sweet sunshine ! All out of the blue the sun rose above the houses at the end of our garden, leaving our living room in a warm golden blaze. I really love the feeling of the days getting longer and hopefully warmer

First mail of the week: a butterfly letter from Anne  It's funny how the letter got stamped. Sometimes I wonder how everything works at the postoffice because the stamp is sometimes on the back side of the envelope! But today I could pick a first envelope from my big pile to hit the road :). Now off you go, and travel safely :)

time management

Yesterday evening while we watched our new favorite tv series Homeland I glued together these beautiful pieces of paper I had in my closet for such a long time. And because I'm not always able to make a beautiful package for the outgoing mail (because I'm too busy with little Pien) I made complete envelopes with papers, labels, stickers and strings :). Perfect time management if you'd ask me haha. Now I only have to pick out one envelope, write the letter and post it. So who will be the lucky first?!
