Hail the Snail 2.37

6 Oct

September 16th: My first and last letter from the week of the 11th, Krista’s, came that Saturday.

September 18th: The following week, however, I got Sarah’s letter right on Monday.

September 19th: Then Jody’s letter arrived the very next day.

September 20th: Logan got some of his own “reading material” next thanks to the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.

September 22nd: I now got the book Curiouser and Curiouser by Melanie Karsak. I also got Kayla’s letter and Sarah’s latest Little Card.

September 23rd: Back to Logan! Today’s delivery was There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat by Lucille Colandro.

September 25th: Logan’s happy mail continued in the form of pictures from my dad, while I got this cute LaPapierre stationery:

September 26th: It’s always a good mail day when I hear from Justine!

September 27th: Joining my little reply pile were letters from Jody and Krista.

September 28th: My dad now sent Logan an odd puppet. If you want to see how odd, by all means google Boglin Slobster, lol.

September 29th: Logan also received his first issue of Boy’s Life— a scouting magazine.

*Here is where I should have wrapped this up like a Christmas present, but I forgot to do so on Sunday, and then assumed I still did it the following days– whoops! Oh well; that just means I can add this week’s fun haul… ūüėČ

October 2nd: If I would have started the next mail call here like I was supposed to, it would start with this wonderful surprise Allison sent along with her letter:

October 3rd: My dad sent me half a sheet of postcard stamps. A bit peculiar, but I’ll take it!

October 5th: Yesterday was full of so much happy mail! Logan got a postcard from his teacher and a letter from a friend, while I got letters from Jody and Kayla, Halloween leggings via Jen and her mailbox, and this awesome stuff from Ashley:

I hope you enjoyed seeing everything half as much as I liked getting it all, because then you still would have liked this a lot! ūüėČ I love the group of pen pals I have acquired, and how they make me feel like I’m hanging out with close friends even if I’m completely alone– which happens quite a bit this time of year. That said, it’s about time I go “hang out” with Kayla. Take care and tune in next time!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Postcards from Wonderland #14

6 Apr

As promised, here are more Postcards from Wonderland! And like the last three from the last time, these all originally came to me blank, only I’m the one who bought them this time, haha. I sent them to Sarah late February, and they’ve trickled back in since then.

Something else that showed up last month? This awesome journal from Ashley!

I obviously love Alice in Wonderland, and I love all my pen pals for being so wonderful. Here’s to another 60+ Postcards from Wonderland, and maybe another 60+ years of pen palling, too.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Postcards from Wonderland #13

4 Apr

The following postcards have been on this side of the looking glass for the past two months or so, but if you read yesterday’s blog post, you know I’ve been “down the rabbit hole.” Better late than never!

These first two were sent to me by Kira from Letters, Postcards, and a Cup of Tea:

How cool, by the way, were her additions to the backs?

The rest of these postcards came thanks to Othella. If the style looks familiar, it’s because they were from a set my dad gave me, and I wanted ’em back used.

More Postcards from Wonderland to come this week, so be sure to keep tuning into this mad tea party of mine.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Postcards from Wonderland #12

21 Dec

I’ve been meaning to post this post for a large portion of the month, but better late than never, eh? Besides, there are already eleven of these posts where, in each one,¬†I show you at least five postcards relevant to Alice in Wonderland— that’s over 50 of the things! I’m grateful to everyone who has helped such a descent down the rabbit hole. The first three¬†postcards you’re about to see¬†were originally sent to me blank¬†by my dad and then filled out by Justine, and Sarah is responsible for the other two, though Ashley sent me the last one blank first as well.

(Cont’d) Pablo sweetened the pot with some more Little Cards.

June 12th: When I saw Pablo I got Whitney’s letter and the first of June’s Little Cards.

June 13th: In addition to getting a letter from Rose, I also now have all of the Little Cards from May. Oh, and our fridge now has some goodies from Figis. Thanks, dad!

I was hoping more fun mail would come yesterday, but the mail carrier just drove by our house. *Sigh* With any luck, today will be better! Hope you’re having a great week!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

I meant to post this trip through the looking glass the other day, but the weekend distracted me.¬†Especially since Gabe and I went to see Alice Through the Looking Glass, hehe.¬†Ashley, you see, didn’t just send me the two postcards from Friday’s post, but all of the ones from the¬†batch I gave her,¬†plus a bonus card! She actually used them to respond to the last letter I sent her since, like Alice, she’s a clever girl ūüėÄ

I’m so grateful to Ashley for not only sending me these postcards, but for being game for anything and everything I ever inquire about. She’s one of the most generous people I have ever met, especially considering I never met her in person!

And that dad guy– he’s pretty generous, too!

Until next time!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Postcards from Wonderland #10

3 Jun

Much like the last time¬†we went down the rabbit hole, the postcards you’re about to see were sent to me twice. My dad originally sent me a set of 20 Alice in Wonderland- friendly postcards, and I divided the 18 I didn’t already into three batches, putting my¬†address and a postcard stamp¬†on each of them. The batches were then sent to Ashley, Justine, and Othella, who have since started sending the postcards back to me! Ashley is responsible for the first and last postcard in this batch, and Justine for the three in the middle. Again, I have the most wonderful enablers!
