Hail the Snail #1

7 Apr

I thought I’d do something a bit different for the Miscellaneous Mondays this month. For a while now I have thought about sharing the mail I have received like Hallvi’s Nest and Snailmail is Still in Fashion, so I thought I’d try it out for a bit and see how it goes over.

The past week started off with 8 postcards and some charming artwork from my pen pal Allison. Did you know you could put temporary tattoos on paper? I didn’t, but I totally intend to try it sometime soon!

My Little Ponies, FTW :-P

My Little Ponies, FTW 😛

008This postcard made me especially happy. It may just be a rose, but the postcrosser who sent it put some thought into it, as the back had the following quote written on it:

A large rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden; the roses growing on it were white, but there three gardeners at it, busily painting them red.

This cute envelope was waiting in my mailbox for me come Wednesday:


So I sent out this one:


Thursday, Friday, and Saturday were all awesome mail days. Each day included at least two letters and a package, as you can see:

Thursday's Haul

Thursday’s Haul

Friday's Haul

Friday’s Haul

Saturday's Haul

Saturday’s Haul

Kari, the sender of Friday’s package, not only sent me the stamps I requested, but a bunch of stuff for my smashbook along with a letter written on awesome black paper:


Then Sophie, my pen friend from England, surprised me with these goodies as well as a handful of postcards on Saturday:


Yeah, I picked an awesome week to start documenting my mail, hehe. Not going to lie, getting some pictures was a bit of a challenge since I can barely wait to get inside to open my mail so I hope you all appreciate ’em. I know I appreciate every single thing I got. ❤

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
