More mail & farm visit!

Hi all!  Hope everyone is having a nice week so far.  Mine has been going well and it's also been busy.  It's the end of the school year at the music school so we have been busy with preparing the end of the year concert, field trips and other activities for the children.  I've also been busy with organizing activities for my private English students for this summer.  
I'm looking forward to this coming weekend since I'll be going to visit my friend Molly in New Hampshire, USA.  I always look forward to spending time with Molly.  We're planning on spending one day in Boston.  It'll be so nice for me to get away on my own.
This past weekend was a little productive in regards to putting together swaps, doing decos and letter writing.  I also slept a lot since I have been feeling exhausted lately.
Last week I also received some really great swaps.  Take a peek below.
I received a fabulous swap in this envelope as part of a group swap.  Actually two swaps from the same partner were in two similar envelopes.
Here's what I received: stationary sheets, notepaper, stickers, postcards and note cards.  I love Suzy Zoo, House Mouse and Mary Englebreit.
A part of the other swap from the same partner with more of my favourite things.
The other part of the same swap.  My partner is definitely one of the best swappers I've ever had.
I also received this swap of decos from my friend Kimie in Vancouver.
I received this wonderful letter, stickers and cute vintage circus postcards from my friend Andrea from England.
A beautiful "Tilda Magnolia" deco made by a swap partner.
A pretty postcard from my Austrian friend Susi who was traveling in Morocco.
A "Vintage Children Illustrations" deco made by another swap partner.
Two beautiful ATCs; "Tulips" and "Favourite Quote" from another swap partner.
And now, onto the farm.
Last Friday we took the kids to a farm on a field trip and they loved it.  Well, so did I actually.  Here you can see an Angora rabbit.  He was so soft and also a little camera shy.
Here is a chinchilla.  They had so many different animals.  The children could see them up close and give them pets.
Here is a baby emeu.  His fur was quite rough contrary to what it may seem.
I felt as though this alpaca was staring right through me.  Doesn't he have an intense look?  Wish I knew what he was thinking, or maybe not.
As funny as this may sound this rooster was looking over the sheep like a shepherd dog would.  
This cute little goat and I were having a conversation.  It lasted a few minutes at which point he walked over to me, let me pet him on the head and walked away.  I'm not quite sure what our conversation was about but he seemed satisfied.  Until next time!


  1. OMG you are sooooo lucky!! I LOVED it!
