Incoming: mail week 1

As a total surprise this lovely mail from Nancy arrived just after Christmas. Love these stamps! She made an envelope which she wrapped in clear plastic. Between the plastic and the envelope was a Christmas cookie and a branch of a Christmas tree. Unfortunately the cookie didn't survive the mail. The envelope smelled lovely though from the crushed cookie!
Inside two small green parcels, a little winter book, which I totally adored, and a letter on lovely stationary.

The little winterbook was full of vintage Christmas cards!
So cute! Quote: "the happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything"

Inside the small green parcels was this wooden hanger.
And a small tin inside the other. It's actually a tin she had received through mail herself, and now she has sent it to me. And I love it!

More incoming mail! A card from Inge and a mail from Christel.

This arrived from Christel. She had contacted me on my blog, and this is what she had sent me. A book of gold!
Once folded open, a booklet full of gold classy fancyness with a  really nice letter (turns out we are the same age!)
A golden garland. What's not to love about a garland!
Gold confetti and gold washi taped party toppers!

And some more incoming mail last week.
A thank you card from Majella with whom I was connected to the adventsmail swap thing.
After carefully dewashitaping the card, this is what was underneath.
Although I liked it more when I took all the washi tape of. The undressed version.

From Inge arrived the big white envelope on the picture above the birds. Inside these lovely wrapped parcels and a small letter. This parcel consisted of 6 brown envelopes full of washi tape and stamps! Really cool!
Inside the brown envelopes were small goodies, most paper goodies. I liked this one the best.
This is what was all inside them all! Check out the lovely shiny magnets in the little white bag on the bottom right.
In the rolled up parcel was this cute poster.

This is the first time that I've blogged about all the incoming mail in one blog. I'm not sure I like it yet. Feels that I'm not doing justice to all the lovely mail. But heck, at least I'm trying something different. Feedback welcome!


  1. Leuke post heb je ontvangen.De bovenste postzegels zijn inderdaad erg leuk!

    1. zo'n postzegels hebben ze hier nu nooit in het dorp :-(

    2. Op kan je hele leuke oude Euo postzegel bestellen. Je krijgt dan een leuke variatie aan postzegels die niet meer bij PostNL te koop zijn én het is goedkoper dan inde winkel!

  2. Heel eerlijk vond ik de aparte posts wel heel fijn, nu is het wel heel veel. Maar nog steeds erg leuk en mooi!
    Ik vind die quote over the happiest people trouwens briljant zeg...

    1. Dank je wel voor je feedback Carin! Ik ga inderdaad toch maar terug naar de aparte posts, daar voel ik me toch prettiger bij als zo'n hele lading in één. En qua tijd scheelt het ook nou niet zoveel uiteindelijk.

  3. Ik kijk altijd uit naar een nieuwe post op je blog
    Altijd heel leuk om te bekijken, zeker als er iets van mezelf tussen staat ;)
    Maar ook om te zien wat andere voor mooie dingen maken
    Eerlijk, vond ik je vorige blog leuker
    Maar het is maar waar je jezelf goed bij voelt :)
    Groetjes, Inge

    1. Hey Inge! Leuk dat je mijn blog leest! Ik doe het toch maar op de oude manier, heb in ieder geval weer eens wat anders geprobeerd. Tot posts!


Thanks for your comment!
