Before I became a blogger I was actually pretty negative about computers (just ask my girls, they'll tell you) In my opinion they got in the way of lots of other good things like reading books, writing letters, talking to people etc etc. These days (although I'm not completely won over) I am beginning to see that computers actually have a strange charm of their own. I am writing more letters lately than I ever wrote before I started this blog. And I'm receiving my far share too. This is the nicest part about being a letter writer...knowing if you take the time to write a letter/card/quick scribble you'll usually get one back.
And although I wouldn't say I stalk the postie, when I'm home I do keep a close eye on him, because a good old-fashioned letter with my name on it is one of my most favourite things.
Speaking of mail, yesterday's was particularly special because I received this parcel of goodies from sweet Allana
Tassie Rocks! and so do you Allana.
vintage tea towel perfection, love it.
I began this post on Wednesday, but didn't have time to finish it...good thing too, because just look what was waiting for me when I got home this afternoon
another lovely parcel, this time from the Queen of Posing, and all round nice girl: the one and only Nelly!
I've been spoilt rotten...
(the Kurt Cobain biography is a present from Nelly for my husband, a Nirvana fan from way back. He'll love it Nelly)
Check out this detail from the Telecom Tower tea towel Nelly sent me. It's hilarious and I love it...
Do you think he's about to pop the question?
I hope he hasn't got any left-overs from dinner stashed away in that mo...don't like his chances if he has...
I'm sure you can think of a much funnier caption than I can...I might award a prize to the best one...
To end, here are four friendly bloggy things you might like to do today:
2. Check out the lovely and inspiring new issue of Covet Garden magazine here
3. Pop over to Leah's, she's got the loveliest new bathers in stock
I'm wondering if I should buy myself another pair...
4. Write a letter, or scribble a quick postcard if a letter is too tricky. You'll make someone's day and you might even get a lovely proper letter in return.
How special is this vintage postcard Laura found in an op-shop? She sent it to me because she knew I would love it, who wouldn't?
