Snail Mail Tale - So many treats for me!

Fatima - My cousin sent me the COOLEST handmade envie covered in beautiful giraffes.  This was her first attempt at handmade envies and she did a great job!  Inside, it was packed with stamps for my Dad as well as stickers, notecards and postcards for me!  Thanks Tima!

Minaz - A month after she came home from a seven week vacation to Africa, I got this postcard from Minaz from her travels in Kenya.  Now she's just come back from a wedding in Calgary!  I can't keep track of her!

Postcrossing - A card from North Little Rock in Arkansas.  I don't get you?

Love the Calvin and Hobbes stamp! 

Vanessa - A sweet birdy to say thank you from my sister-in-law for her baby shower goodies! 
(Marianne - Notice the Royal Mail sticker, I photographed it just for you my friend.)

Marianne - Marianne is one of the sweetest, kindest and most thoughtful blog friends I have.  She took a last minute trip to Florida and just before her first blog meet up, she found the time to send postcards.  She is truly special.

Micaela - Marianne's twin Micaela is just as generous as her sister. She sent me a lovely little pink package that lit up my whole mailbox!
Inside were some cute giraffe stickers, vanilla cupcake lip balm, a great snail mailing stamp and my favorite bit of all....a note from Micaela.  Thank you so much!!

Felicty - I love anything to do with Felicity.  She wanders through this world to a beat so different from mine and I find it truly fascinating!  Check out her blog's regular Friday Froth feature.  The stamps on the front of her letter are terrific. 
Her art work is so unique and peppered with bursts of vibrant colours.  Check out the brunch she left for me on the back of her envie. One of the eggs and the toast are 3D!

Farah - My template twin Farah sent me some golden hearts from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and a lovely long letter.

Zoe - One of the first things I ever learned about Zoe is that she loves movies with talking dogs.  So when I saw this poster at the theatre, I decided it would make the perfect envelope for my next letter to her.

Meghan -  A little something I doodled while on a conference call.  Thank you Meghan for a great belated birthday surprise! If you aren't already following her blog, you really should.

Claire - Birthday treats for the lovely and talented Claire.  You can read about what is inside here.

Hope you are having a happy mail week! 
I've got some letters to write.  Ciao!

So here's the excuse for the late postcard... no post offices to be found in Uganda, didn't have your address - sent it once we got back to Toronto, left the postcard to be mailed after we left! It did come with lots of love though and most important... Ugandan stamps and postmark!

'Almost Canadian' postcard... I think the line represents the 49th and how all Americans wish they could be like us :)

I love seeing all these lovely cards and Pc's you got in the mail. The poster that u got for Zoe. Did you know that they cast all rescue cats and dogs in that movie so they are potentially still available for adoption. I love that idea.
