Mail, this and that!

Hello all!  It is a beautiful Monday with lot's of sunshine.  It is Canadian Thanksgiving but here in Quebec it is not really celebrated.  Quebec often likes to be different from the rest of Canada.  Anyhow, I went to my friend Molly's this weekend, from Friday to Sunday and had a wonderful time. I needed the change of scenery.  We did lot's of shopping and just relaxed.  I bought quite a few things; English books which are almost impossible to find here in Sherbrooke, craft supplies, clothes and other trinkets.  I've been so busy these past two weeks so it's been nice to have three days off from work.  Here's the latest in mail:
I received these two beautiful decos, "Mary Englebreit" and "Matryoshka Dolls" from my friend and group swap partner Kirsten from Germany.  I absolutely LOVE them.
My lovely friend Kimie from Vancouver, Canada sent me these nice things for my birthday.
Kimie and I were also paired for a swap and this is the pretty deco she made and sent me.
My friend Ioanna from Greece sent me this lovely letter and pretty birthday card.
I received this lovely "Sunflower" ATC (to the right) along with extras from a group swap partner.
A wonderful letter I received from my friend Lieve from Belgium.  She also sent stickers and an ink stamp.
Another pretty ATC, this time themed "Postage Stamps" (bottom right) with a few extras from a group swap partner.
My sweet friend Laura from Romania made and sent me these BEAUTIFUL earrings for my birthday.  The cat card is also cute.
I love this swap of decos Merel sent me.  She made the beautiful pink "Lace" themed one on the left.
I received this postcard from Germany.  It was sent by my friend Nicole (from the USA) who was visiting my other friend Lone who lives in Germany.
Here's a letter, FBs and stationary from my friend Patrizia from Italy.
An "Autumn" themed deco sent by a group swap partner.
A fun Halloween swap from a group swap partner.
Molly, Jadira, Noah and I before heading out to shop on Saturday morning in New Hampshire, USA.
Here is my buffet with a few more Halloween decorations and some cards I received recently.  The black cat I bought in the USA on the weekend.  I really love him.  I just love Halloween!  Tonight I'll snuggle up on the couch in my writing spot with letters and the cats, drinking some hot chocolate.  Have a good week everyone!


  1. I'm glad to know you and Molly had fun together! I love you new background and all decos, swaps and letters you received. Today is a very cold and rainy day here, seems like we are in middle of November or so...Perfect weather to be at home with a cup of coffee and a letter to reply to ^-^
    Noah is all grown up, he will be taller than you soon! Beautiful picture of you, Noah and your friends...I like the smiles and the colorful trees behind you.


  2. I loved seeing all your Mail Love! Are you by chance swapping at Swap-bot? I love that site! I mostly swap postcards and letters. I came to your blog via The 52 Letters Project blog. :)

    1. Thanks for your comment. No, I'm not at swap-bot. You may think it is strange but I just can't seem to understand how it all works at swap-bot. I usually swap via googlegroups and also with my penpals. They keep me busy enough. You can e-mail me at if you want to chat more. :)
