Fun, really fun good mail I had to share.

This was actually self-induced good mail. I discovered this girl who sells these awesome tags. I was excited to get them in the mail so quickly - great service - and also with a handmade card for me to use as a thank you for my order. Check her out here.

My friend Chanel did an awesome book exchange with some of our friends daughters and when the girls got their books back it came with personalized book plates, book worms, flashlight to read in bed and a silver bookmark. Such a great idea. I think my Caroline ate that whole bag of worms in one night or else I will find them all hidden somewhere in a month. Thank Chanel the gift pack is awesome.

Kelly ent me this hand painted pineapple canvas! What? oh my! I am too lucky. It is really fab and will go in my sewing room. It is really wonderful a million thank yous!

everyone deserves to get a package in the mail with string on it. I have never done that before but just may try. The Canada post label says:" From Anywhere ... to anyone"
this is what was inside. Barb my Value Village buddy found this great pineapple napkin holder at her local store. I don't know if I love it because it is a pineapple or more so because it came from Value Village. It is now in my craft room holding recent good mail. Thanks I love it! oh ya, and look what it came in, pefect for earth day! reduce reuse and recycle.

Natasha strikes again with having the cutest stationary. Thanks I love it.
Anne is cracking me up. She sent this mail in an awesome silver padded envelope. Before I read the card I said to myself, "this will be so awesome to reuse again" then her card reads, "Since I know you reuse your padded envelopes thought I would send you a cute one"

in honor of earth day she sent some ribbon scraps that she thought I would make use of.. oh yes I will and already have a few of them. Thanks Anne!
this is a reminder to me how much cousins love cousin mail. These beautiful pieces of art our from our southern California cousins on the beach. Once Caroline found out which one was hers she would not let it go or let anyone "chuch" it.and this wonderful surprise came in the mail. remember my virtual $100... well some very nice, overly generous person sent this to me with a note that said, "Every girl deserves a new spring dress" We are doing a White House tour in a few weeks and I can't think of anything better to wear. Thanks so much!!

so now I have decided to just leave my clothes pins just in my tree at all times ready to come outside and take some photos.

I love the Jot & Tittle labels - so simple and sweet!

Fab range of Good Mail too. I agree - you're best just leaving the pegs on the tree, constantly 'at the ready'!

I just L-O-V-E your pineapple painted canvas. IS there anyway to find out where it came from? It would look perfect in my new, almost done, sewing studio.
