Snail Mailing

After reading Suki's post on her involvement in Correspondence Club (run by Star Crossed Smile), I was reminded how much I love writing and receiving letters. You really cannot beat that little flutter you get when you receive something in the post. The proper, comes-through-your-letter-box type of post. I get pretty excited when I get any type of message/email/tweet, so imagine how excited I get when I get something I can hold in my grubby mitts!

And that's forgetting the other amazing things about letters: stationery! I bought some lovely stuff recently from Paperchase but when I opened it, I realised that the back of all of the writing paper was decorated. Very pretty, but seeing as I use about 8 pieces of A5 writing paper when I write a letter, not very helpful if you can't write on both sides! I've had to send some very fat envelopes before I used that up! I know I could make my own paper with my growing rubber stamp collection but my Etsy addiction got in the way first...

I bought these from Ninainvorm as her shop is so pretty I had to buy something:

Her ceramics are also absolutely gorgeous - I had to stop looking before I spent all of my money!

While looking I came across some other fantastic stationery which is going on my Favourites list for next time:

This Kawaii Breakfast Letter Set from Asking for Trouble

Rabbit Loves Fox Writing Set from An April Idea..


Block Printed Writing Set - Blue Skinny Flower from Bread and Jam (ace shop name!)..


Building Blocks Correspondence Set from Primele..


8 bit Polar Bear Eco Friendly Writing Set from Blackbird and Peacock who do a wide range of geeky 8bit goodness.


Embroidered Rain Cloud Writing Set by Papeleria Pueblo ...
