Snail Mail Tale - Seahorses are fun!

To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere
without moving anything but your heart.  ~Phyllis Theroux

My latest mooches through BookMooch.
Running with Scissors, Augusten Burroughs
The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, Melissa Bank
Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures, Vincent Lam
She's Not There: A Life in Two Genders, Jennifer Finney Boylan

Sock Swap
From Amy for the Swap-bot Cute and Funky Swap.  I love Little Miss Giggles!

A terrific letter and handmade envelope from Bianca as well as an invitation to play Mail Tag.  Bianca is quite talented at packing as much fun into one flat envelope as possible.  Look at what she was able to send in this single envelope...Thanks for the goodies!

Aneez and Vanessa
The back of this postcard says, "I know you don't want a house full of giraffe stuff so I thought I'd send a postcard of a guy with a round nose wearing big glasses and sporting a neatly kept 'stache!"

I adopted some envelopes from Hong Kong.  Vicky makes these handmade beauties so that they can travel the world.  I love the stamps of the endangered Black-Faced Spoonbill and the well loved Red-Whiskered Bulbul.  You can adopt your own envies from Vicky right here.

A letter to my Western Canadian pen pal using the last envelope I got from Felicity.

Taking another stab at freehand drawing.  A seahorse for my favourite Texan Marianne.

i LOVE sea horses &
all the beauties,
including little miss giggles,
that travel through our
beautiful world & sometimes
even land on our
door or blogstep.
