Great post!


Look what arrived in the post today!

I recently won a giveaway by Marie at Lost Bird Studio.  
If you don't know this lovely girl's work then 
may I suggest you hot foot it over there by clicking here.

This is the package I received,
 wrapped beautifully in vintage (1895) hand written notepaper.
a sweet tag
a perfect white feather
some wonderful old ribbon tied in a perfect bow
and inside....



front
this beautiful little lavender pillow.

back, with tag
It's so pretty and smells gorgeous (surely you can smell it where you are?!).

Thank you so much, Marie.

(When you pop over to Marie's blog, make sure you look out for her '200 post giveaway' - that girl just can't stop giving!)

Further to my post about my 'gone missing' ATC's and Mail Art (click here for a reminder), guess what?  I got an email today from Kristin to say that they have arrived!

Hooray!

Me of little faith (in the postal service).
I'll be sending off my next Postman's Knock postcard 
on Friday 
(with the theme of 'Rust')
 and I'm hoping that it finds its way quickly and safely.

Wow! What a lovely, lovely parcel of perfection.

If I sniff really hard I think I can just get a faint whiff of Lavender :)

I am so glad your treasures turned up safely and your faith has been restored in Postal Services.

I've paid quite a few registered post charges £5 plus a time, to ensure stuff really does arrive. (Not my 'art' - that would just have to take its chances (!) Livi's birth certificate, solicitors letters with important docs etc)

I do like a happy ending though!!!!!

Enjoy the hols!!!

So sweet the lavender pillow!! And the packaging makes it even that much more special.
Pat to Rosie! Has that picture of your bunny always been there? I don't remember seeing that before.. we have a bunny here too! Funny the similarities with the animals we have.. don't tell me you have a snake as well...

Gorgeous gift -- lucky you. The Postman's Knock posting date seems to have come round quite quickly, doesn't it? I have the same slight nerves about sending off my effort as the first time!

Linda said...

How gorgeous...Marie creates such lovely things! Congratulations on winning her giveaway.

What a gorgeous gift and I had my fingers and toes crossed for the missing mail art items - I was a bit worried as I had decided to send a little mail art out this last week as a test and my first item arrived at its required destination - phew!

Hope you're having a great week - mine has been mental

Katie said...

It was so lovely to hear from you today. Your post looks divine. Lucky lucky you. Yes ... I can smell it in Cornwall. Most deserved. The erosion bundle was a lot of fun. I expect I will do it again next year with different ideas. Mark your calendar for 1st January. Have a lovely week Joanna x
