Postia, Mail (3.)

Hello dears! 

I´m sorry for this delay, this post should have been here a week ago already, but life happens sometimes. My daughter got sick and we had to visit the emergency room this week etc. Luckily it was just a minor allergic reaction. But I`ve had so much things on my mind, that posting here hasn`t been possible until now. I hope you understand.
This time i have SO many pictures that i wont be talking too much, just saying i have again received some awesome mail! <3



Card from Joe in Usa, Rilakkuma envie from Mikki in Usa and folded envelope from Helena in Japan.

Lovely old school letter from Helena. She had folded the paper into an envelope and put a seal on top.

From Mikki, "February is for Matryoshkas". I just LOVE these Russian dolls.
More mail <3 I really like the postcard with Chinese lady doing traditional handcraft, it came via Postcrossing. Of these i only had a few photos, don`t know why. :/

From Jean-Michel in France came all these bookmarks!!

Jean-Michel had used this lovely picture as writing paper. I also received a souvenir magnet!
Some postcards i ordered from Polkkajam. I just love their designs!
More mail from Helena in Japan. She told Japanese post office is a bit unreliable, so she decided to send me mail two times just to make sure i will get something. And i managed to get both! <3

A letter from Annett in Germany. Frida Kahlo is an amazing woman, see this Frida Kahlo writing paper!! I so want to get some myself!    

Tiny ephemera from Shannon. <3

No Spending swap, from Terrie
Stickers!! Also from Terrie. <3

Also these came from Terrie, WOW.

From Renate and JarieLyn. <3 Love the unique letters here!!
Goodies from Renate. Very inspiring!!
A very pretty ATC i received from Cathy.
These are from Lisa for Suprise in an envelope 2, i think. My bookkeeping is a mess... I love iced coffee. Unfortunately the variety here in Finland is very poor. So i was happy get a new flavour to taste!
More mail... :)

From Mary in Usa. I really like this design! <3
Mary sent me these goodies. More Frida, oh joy! <3

Even more mail..  :D My mailbox has been somewhat generous lately, dont you think? :) <3

From Krystin in Usa. She had also included Chicago Bears notepapers for my boyfriend. (My bfs favourite NFL team) He had already taken those treasures before i got to take this picture. Boyfriends need to be mail spoiled sometimes too! :)

From Ashley. I love the notecard, so magical!

WHAT? More mail? Yes!! Special note to the official LEP -stationery on the upper left corner. :)

Robyn from Australia sent me a letter and had included Angry Birds collectable stickers for Anni. Anni LOVED these. She even keeped the package they came in. :)

I ordered some more washi.. oops! Again from great Teippitarha. They semt mt the pink stickers as an extra, nice.



To get mail you also must send mail. I do send loads of mail, but i still forget to take photos.. Sorry! But here are some.

This is our kitchen table... So neat and organized! This is where i usually write my letters etc. And where i am sitting at this moment. And yes, i do have a bookshelf in the kitchen too, don`t we all? And SUN has been seen in northern Finland, WOW!!!  

Until next time! Have a very nice day! :)

Postia, mail. (2.)

  Hello lovelies! 

 First i would like to welcome all new readers, it is nice to see that so many are interested in my mail life. :) This post is a sequel for my last post. I was supposed to post earlier, but I guess I`ve been busy? This week has been SPECTACULAR mailwise, so i had to cut this post in two parts too. Second part coming this weekend if i don`t get lazy. :)

(p.s To keep my posts more up to date, i wont be posting about all "normal" letters i send and receive. At least for this time of the year, when Letter Month is still running and i get and send more mail than usual.)

All this mail on one day! Just amazing.

This lovely letter came from Jennyrose in Usa. I love Helena Bonham Carter, Jennyrose had decorated one of her letter papers with Helenas picture. <3

These are from Beth in Canada. Just my favourite colors! <3

From Camille in UK. The yellow thing is a magnet with Lambanana on it, you heard me, Lambanana. It is a creature half lamb and half banana. LOVE it!

This beautiful envelope with decotape samples and a lovely letter came from Jessica in Usa.

From Miriam in Spain. The bookmark reminds me of the amazing Frida Kahlo. And see those Gaudi -stickers, wow! Gaudi is one of my favourite architects.

I sent a postcard to Alison in UK via sendsomething and she sent me all this in return!

Alisons envelope was very pretty and it contained poetry by Alfred Lord Tennyson. A nice idea! I think i need to start making poetic envelopes too.

From Lisa in Usa i received these via decotape swap at swap-bot. I love the colors here!

This beautifully stamped envelope is from Sherry in Usa. Also a swap-bot swap.

From Sherry. She had included sports themed postcards since my boyfriend is a huge sportsfan. :) The robot makes me smile.
Sherry had also made an own envelope for my daughter. So sweet of her! <3

    These are from Sherry too. I just LOVE the rubberstamps, don`t you? <3

From Roxanne in Canada came this lovely envelope
The backside of Roxannes envelope. The text here pretty much recaps my priorities in life at the moment. :)
Roxanne had packed everything this pretty. I almost felt bad opening this, cause it was so nicely made.
This is what Roxanne sent. I just love the notecards! And the postcard with the lovely lady is going to be framed and put on my wall. :)
I have also (of course...) bought something. These beauties are from Petite Paperie.

I also bought some postcards from a Finnish seller, Janne Harala Tmi. These will be wonderful for Postcrossing. (And for all Finnish readers out there, the shop still has a great discount -60% of all postcards.)
I have noticed that many mail lovers also love books, so here are some. These two i have borrowed from the local library. The Land of Decoration by Grace McCleen and The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. I havent yet started, but i`ve heard these are good. Have you read these yet?

These i bought. Oh the lovely Adlibris, where even us Finns can find great books! :)
This is the mail i sent after last weekend. :)
Outgoing from last weekend..

A great mail week, don`t you think? And this is just the beginning! More coming soon. I hope you are having a happy time wherever you are. <3
