Tied up with string

The good mail was flowing this week...


^ This beautifully decorated envelope arrived this week from Nicola in Scotland containing some very cute postcards.


^ An expectedly lovely letter from Melody.


^ A lovely tiny newspaper envelope from Rebecca. Does that postmark look a bit like a moustache to you?


^ Siobhan sent me a package containing the loveliest things. Gorgeous stationery, some fun UK history guides and two zines by Chanell Kristen which I was so excited to look through. I'll be sending you something this week lady!


^ A very sweet letter from Rashel.


^ Another great letter from Tejal. She wrote part of the letter on the back of these 'Worst Case Scenario' daily desk calendar notes - they made me laugh.


^ At last year's This Is Not Art festival I picked up a pack of these flat collaged 'Thicket' cards by Studio Racket for $5 a pack - I've been using them as postcards but I saw on their website that they are actually listed as a zine/puzzle and fit together - so I bought another set (I'd sent off a few of them in the first set as postcards) and put 'em together.


^ Wendy you shouldn't have! Lovely, newly-wedded Wendy sent me this great box of stuff this week including (my first!) little red Moleskine and a gorgeous red fountain pen. Too generous! I'm going to send her a big ol' care package after the move.


^ I saw these postcards in Frank & Dean's online shop and bought a pack of ten for $7. Gorgeous designs.


^ This may be the tiniest postcard I have ever received - it measures 10cm x 7cm. Why are tiny things so cute?!




^ An Escher for Sirpa.


^ I finally sent off my contribution to Pip's Envelope Project this week. I was having a really bad day when I took it to the post office and I got the particularly unpleasant post office attendant who just stuck an ugly sticker in place of a stamp on it and threw it into a bucket with other mail while I was watching and it looked a little damaged. I hope it arrives safely. If you've not sent anything to the Envelope Project yet there's definitely still time.


^ For miss Sophie B in Melbourne.


^ A fat little Escher envelope tied up with string for Carla in San Diego.


^ A first letter to Melissa in Georgia in a Cathy Olivas envelope.

While walking to the post office last week I noticed that a cafe near my house has a rack of free postcards and sneakily shoved as many as I could in my bag. I spotted these pretties sitting there too - the postcards I made for Bird In The Hand. I hadn't seen them in the flesh before and I like 'em;
