Letters!

16 Jan

This week I have been writing some letters to my penpals, one lady whom I particularly owe a letter and miss dropping a papery line with.

2015/01/img_3696.jpg

I’ve also joined in with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence Bring Back Paper challenge.

Jocelyn’s January’s challenge is to send out a piece of Happy Mail. If you are already a Snail Mailer she has set the additional task of sending out one more piece of Happy Mail to some one you don’t regularly correspond with.

Earlier in the month I fulfilled this January challenge by joining in with ‘Pay it Forward’ where by you send a piece of happy mail to 5 different people randomly at anytime throughout 2015.

You may have seen this on my Instagram & Twitter account and around and about, many people take part in this.

2015/01/img_3697.png

I offered this to the regular people who I exchange with and also those who I do not exchange with.

So excitingly (as I enjoy sending happy mail as much as receiving it) I have 5 ladies to surprise at some point.

1: Lady in the Netherlands.
1: Lady in America. (I already exchange with)
2: Ladies in The UK.
1: Lady in Australia.

I’m so pleased I got a response and am really looking forward to sending these ladies a treat during the year.
I’m so eager, I need to put my thinking cap on and surprise these ladies.

Pop over and take part with Jocelyn if you are also a #PaperyPeep kind of person.

Next month she is Hosting a Stationary Swap.

Snail Mail

20 Aug

It’s been longer than I thought since I’ve blogged about various snail mail.

I haven’t been keeping a very good photographic account of all my incoming and outgoing mail recently either.

But here are a few I have recorded.

OUTGOING

Letter Writing Incoming

I like to update you on what my letter box has been delighted with now and again.

I thank all my letter writing companions for all the efforts they put in and the joy it brings.

So here is some of the mail that’s been arriving here I try and photograph most but sometimes I get confused with what I have and haven’t taken pictures of.

#PostCircle #TweetPalMail

13 Feb

Howdy from Myself and the Post Pooch this is the face he pulls when Mummy letter writes.

20140213-223529.jpg

I’m now a member of 2 #PostCircle groups #Goose & #Ptarmigan and through Twitter & #PostCircle have #TweetPalMail friends too whom mostly all #PostCircle too.

These are some of the lovely letters and gifts I’ve had over the first few months of 2014 from these letter writing ladies.

Debbie fellow #Ptarmigan #PostCircle member sent this lovely lot over the Christmas & New Year period.

20140213-223455.jpg

With this amazing find which I treasure.

20140213-223601.jpg

Another lovely card in a gorgeous vibrant yellow; such a happy colour for such grey days. Received from Annee in #TweetPalMail.

20140213-223421.jpg

Both Debbie & Annee were made #PostCircle Angels at the start of the year. You can read all about the #PostCircle Angels over on Miss Beatrix Blog.

And last but not least another #Ptarmigan letter this time from Judith in Spain, who not only sent a lovely letter but also had sewn a cute little note book.

20140213-223645.jpg

20140213-223705.jpg

In my following posts I will show you some of the outgoing post I’ve been sending over the past few weeks.

World Post Day

9 Oct

October 9th World Post Day

World Post Day acknowledges the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union in Berne, Switzerland in 1874 & the ongoing role of the Postal Sector.

Though ‘post’ had existed in different forms before 1874, the UPU was the start of global communications between people all over the world.

20131009-124337.jpg

And today being World Post Day I have been aptly letter writing.

On Monday Anna at Miss Beatrix Blog sent me an exciting email regarding my new #PostCircle group.

#PostCircle #PTARMIGAN

“The ptarmigan is a plump gamebird”

This is her on holiday enjoying the highlands of Scotland in her summer finery.

20131009-164252.jpg

There are four of us in our group at the moment. Two of us in the United Kingdom, One in Spain and One in South Africa.
I’m so looking forward to getting to know these ladies more through the joy of the written word and with Thanks to the Postal Service & Universal Postal Union!

I can’t give you a glimpse of my #PostCircle #Ptarmigan letter yet as I don’t want to spoil the surprise for my first recipient. But I will finish with some recently sent out personal mail & #tweetpalmail pictures.

Where Did You Go?

19 Aug

Hello Hello

So I was unable to use the Internet this weekend… Which meant; those who follow on Twitter and were aware of the #lettersocial, I was unable to blog my letter writing posts or Tweet.

I how ever did enjoy catching up on some letter writing on Sunday morning.

20130819-235313.jpg

The Below Three Posts Are From Sunday, Better Late Than Never!
Please take a look and share your letter writing with me.

Today; amongst a far to busy Sunday for my liking. I thought I would post some picture inspiration of the lovely #Postcircle & #Tweetpalmail letters I have received.

Let me Introduce you to the #Postcircle #Goose Ladies.

Meet Heather.

Heather was my first eagerly awaited & received #Postcircle letter. So what better place to start.

And that is the lovely variety of letters, recipes and tuck-ins I have received from the #goose ladies. Every letter a joy.

Then recently, infact mostly just last week when I was tweeting about this Sunday’s #lettersocial.
I have obtained a few new tweet penpals; some I know on Twitter & some I literally met through that one tweet, these ladies I am referring to as my #tweetpalmail ladies.

And already these speedy letter writers have been busy sending little ol’ me lovely mail which has brightened my day.

Meet @Squeaky Pig: Debbie.

20130818-073405.jpg
