Happy mail

Lots of happy mail in my mailbox the last months! I found myself some new penpals through Instagram & Interpals. (website looks not that good, and lots of males who search for female attention but if you use the search-option and look for snailmail, you find what you search for)
 
Here are some outgoing letters to Interpal-friends.
 
 
 Incoming! Dear Claudia spoiled me with this beautiful stamp she carved herself. Her inspiration was one of the playing cards i sent her. Thank you so much! This is a gift i'll treasure for the rest of my life, yay for handmade gifts!!





What a lovely surprise to find this handwriting in my mailbox again!! It made me smile :)
I think everyone experiences what Lisa did, not feeling like writing for a while. I often have it with my blog, not finding the inspiration or right mood..
But look what she sent me! A little adventure to discover everything she added to the letter!
Love the creative idea!






This card came all the way from India, where Mina had a wonderful time!! Another super surprise in my mailbox!


And mail from Sara, Lisbon. I like the stamps!

 
 
That's enough mail for now.
I wish you all a sunny weekend, i feel a first bbq and mojito coming up!

The cabinet

My cabinet, also known as my happy corner in the house, is filled with vintage treasures. Actually, they're treasures to me, some might only see them as old silly toys..
My bf calls it an organised mess :)
Guess you can say it's a bit of a mess in the cabinet and i really should re-organise everything and maybe leave some of the things out of it, but help!! I'm so bad at throwing things away.
I think i'll keep the organised mess for a bit longer!

Happy mail

December was a happy mail month, all the christmas cards that arrived!
Did you survive all the parties, eating and good wishes?
Now we're january again (almost finished btw! Help!! Where did that first month go to??) and we're back to normal letter writing. My fingers have been itching to write letters for weeks now, i even searched for some new pen pals! So many stationary that's waiting to be used in my desk..

Here are some of the letters that arrived (sorry for the crappy phone-pictures):

From dear Barbara! Happy to hear all is good with you!
 
From Heidi, always a pleasure to receive those nice envelopes!
 
All the way from Malaysia.. a big, fun parcel from Fiona!




And these went out:

Knitting patterns for Lisa

Vintage playing cards for Claudia
 
 
Happy letterwriting!

End of the year

Here it is again...the end of the year! The end of 2012 seems like yesterday to me...
Every year more and more, i'm surprised for how fast time goes!
 
Here in Belgium the weather brings no Christmas-feelings at all, it's too warm and it's dark, very windy and wet now and then... Luckily the christmastree, candles & fireplace are giving us a touch of winter-joy!
 
I wanted to wish all my blog readers lots of fun the coming days and ofcourse all the best for 2014!!
I'll do my best to post a bit more on my blog... shame on me for this year...
 
Here's a letter i wrote to Fiona and some Christmas pictures to end this year.
Have fun all of you and keep it safe!
See you next year :)

More happy mail

Here's some more happy mail i received in october,

Sometimes i wish writing letters is all i have to do in my life :)
Oh and ofcourse i should have to search for pretty stationary a lot then!!
 
But enough with that dream, back to the dishes!

Happy mail

Another letter of dear Claudia arrived, always a little party in my mailbox cause i love her illustrations and she spoiled me with some of her postcards, thank you!

Did you know today is Day Of The Post? We should all sent eachother more handwritten letters, they are still the best and have so much more personality than  internet mails!

Do you write letters?

France

Our holiday in France was once again so great, every year i'm loving the place more and more..
We saw so many beautiful old villages, had the best weather ever and just enjoyed every single minute. Didn't they say pictures tell more than a thousand words?
I totally agree with that so here are some of our first week,
week 2 will follow later.
 
Oh, just one more thing, i'm in love with Roussillon, the red village!
I think i want to live there :)
