Tea post

I got this wonderful delivery from my niece today.
Finnish post seems to sell these kind of tea packages to be sent as a letter. Such a nice idea and a very nice surprise for me (she knows that I like tea very much and don't drink coffee at all)!

A beautiful old card

I love old cards, especially because of the beautiful handwriting in them. But this card, which I bought this spring in flea market in Brussels, has also such a beautiful front side!

A letter to Ilona

I sent this letter to my mail art friend Ilona

I used the idea which I saw this spring in a restaurant in Brussels. In their menu they had surrounded different meal alternatives a little bit like this, and I liked it a lot, and copied the idea in my note book to be used afterwards.
I think the idea really works in an envelope also!

A glorious letter from Argentina

I got this beautiful letter today from my dear friend from Argentina.
Thank you so much!

Huge spider stamps were possibly too big for the front side (I know that my friend doesn't glue the stamps, but the post official there wants to do it by himself!) :)

Cat letter from USA

I got this wonderful letter today from
She is the one who gave me the inspiration for starting this blog, and I was so happy to receive this beautiful letter from her.
I'm not sure if I mentioned to her that I love cats, but at least she knew it when she used this cat style both in her envelope and the letter/card inside it!

Lovely sheet of stamps

I love this sheet of 5 stamps, which is a design of Laura Laine and was published 6.5.2009.
I used one stamp of it into this underlying bithday card envelope to my sister in law. I didn't use just the stamp but additionally a piece of the sheet background and then continued some lines by using drawing ink and coloured pencil.
