Received: mail from my friend Fatima

One of the perks of sending mail: receiving mail! Remember my blogpost about the letter I sent to my friend Fatima? Well, did she respond. I was stunned by the beautiful mail (or should I say gift) she sent me. It arrived yesterday, but I didn’t check my mailbox until this morning. And there it was. A big, fully stuffed package.. with my name on it!

Ofcourse I wanted to thank her immediatly via Facebook or e-mail, but then I read her letter: she was very surprised by my mail & didn’t want to respond through regular Facebook, instead sending me a surprise back. And a surprise it was! Nice detail; one of her little sisters thought the letter I sent her was an invitation to a Royal Ball because of the wax seal. Isn’t that cute?

Let me show you the contents of this wonderful package! There’s ofcourse a letter, a really awesome keychain (attached to keys already? Yes!), a cashews & dates gluten, dairy & wheat free cookie (yum!), two teabags, a bar of Leonidas Chocolate (very nice), coffee and a really cute postcard that says: “A friend is someone who knows you and still loves you”! Check out the pics below!

Update: Fatima let me know that it is in fact not a keychain, but a bookmark. Even more lovely!

 

Received: mail from Irene

I actually received this package on the 15th of October 2012, but blogging about it now. This package sparked my imagination and jumpstarted my love for snailmail. It is sent by Irene, who started out as a customer (she bought a lot of my jewelry from Qrioza).

During the year, I lent her a dress that I bought on Etsy and she loved it. I decided she could keep it (well, in exchange for some money) & she was ecstatic. I have to say, the dress fits her perfectly. After that, she sent me this package, without notification. It was heartwarming.

She used a theme (fairytales) and really made it special. It contained a flower, a postcard, a lovely vintage print, a game card from a Little Red Riding Hood, two teabags & lots of other great stuff.

Irene is really kind and she also has a wonderful blog, called Lentetypes. Check it out!

Enjoy the pictures!
