Pretty bits and pieces in the mail


Another hot summer day in Brisbane ... The chickens are hiding out in the chicken house and the dog is lolling about with her tongue hanging out ... It's hard to get motivated (to clean the house) in this weather.



First off the winner of the musical heart is Art Decadence ... you can see her lovely blog here. This week I will be giving away a mail pack. I love getting mail, though it's few and far between and it's usually just stuff I have bought on Etsy myself! Everyone emails (including me), though I have been mailing out little gifts by way of my giveaways and sometimes participate in mail art projects.




I have been busy making envelopes, and cards to put up in my Etsy shop. These ones are from the Macquarie School Atlas. I think most Australian kids had one of these growing up ... this one is from the LifeLine Bookfest and once belonged to Rebecca Weston. It's be kind of fun to find her and send her a letter (envelope) made from her primary school text book!



Leave me a comment here to win a mail pack, with envelopes, gift tags and little cards to write your notes on ...


Win Me

Aw really pleased about the heart...it's just perfect..thanks honey! Your envelopes are great...and yes wouldn't it be fun to contact the owner of the book...I'd be stoked if somebody had done arty things with one of my old school books...

Yes, contacting the owner of the book would be so wonderful, what a trip down memory lane you might send her :)

Your chook has quite the expression in her eye...must be the heat!

I think you should try and find Rebecca Weston - how random and wonderful would that be for her to have that 'blast from the past'?!

I received my unique little parcel today...it felt like christmas...thank you so much...the brooch is going to get lots of wear...i'm always in either black or white so it looks gorgeous on either. And the little extras are so quirky. I'm feeling verrry lucky today!

I do love map envelopes. I had some extra maps I used a couple months ago.
