Is there anything better than receiving good mail!? I don’t think so. Especially when it’s a handwritten letter or a parcel of handmade goodies, wrapped with love, brown paper and washi tape!
In the last week we’ve been lucky enough to have not one, but two sweet little packages delivered by the postman. The first was from lovely Alana and Koren. Somehow, miraculously, I won a competition on their blog (I never win anything, ever!) so I was the happy recipient of two cute animal totes, a little fabric bookmark and a package of yummy tea. Nice! The second parcel was a housewarming gift from the gorgeous Kelly. I have long been a fan of Kelly’s work (I mentioned it way back here!) and, thanks to the magic of the internet, am now lucky enough to consider her a real friend. Naturally I was thrilled to bits when I unwrapped that adorable plate! I am completely and utterly smitten with it. I just can’t wait to hang it up on the wall in our new house.
I am constantly amazed by the wonderful things this blog has brought into our lives. Of course the little packages of handmade goodness are wonderful, but even more beautiful than the gifts themselves are what they represent. The sense of community this space has helped us create, and the friendships it has allowed us to form. It makes our hearts so very happy. You make our hearts so very happy.
Thanks for being a part of our story.
PS We are thinking of everyone in Queensland and northern New South Wales who have been affected by floods this week, and hope you are all staying safe and dry.
