Snail Mail

I love getting post, whether it’s a postcard or a letter.. but this week I was lucky enough to receive two parcels from giveaways! One is from  Conversation Pieces (Zoë) in Edinburgh (though the contents are actually from her trip to San Fran!) and the other is from Micaela in the US.
I just wanted to do this post to say a big thank you to these two lovelies, and to show you guys what beautiful things I received!
This first parcel is from Micaela. Isn’t the packaging so pretty? She obviously knows how much I love doilies!
She sent me this amazing chalkboard mug which you can write/ draw on. It’s so fun!

I love this postcard, sweet vintage bunny buttons and a Keep Calm and Carry On notebook. I definitely need this to remind me not to stress so much every now and again!
I adore the papercut card she wrote to me

This necklace is so pretty!
Thank you Micaela! Kisses from London xx
This parcel is from Zoë. I love her writing on the outside
Two things you can’t get in England – strawberry Carmex and peanut butter M&Ms! Ahhh I love them so much! I usually use cherry Carmex but I’ve recently run out and this is so yummy! And the peanut butter M&Ms are so tasty and kind of salty. SO much better than peanut or normal M&Ms. Though I’m kind of glad they don’t sell them here as I could see myself getting addicted to them!
Beautiful letterpress postcard. I think it’s too special to send! I’m thinking of framing it.


Lastly, this lovely ring! I adore it.

Thank you so much Zoë!! You are too kind.
Like I said before, when I get to 100 followers I will have a special giveaway of my own to thank my lovely followers.
Have a wonderful weekend! I’m off to check out the new Topshop makeup. What are you up to?

    Aww so glad you liked it all! Was hoping who ever won them would like them 😀

    P.S. You do know that the ring is a crayon ring – which means if you wanted you can draw with it?

    You received so many great goodies! I relate snail mail to how I used to feel on Christmas morning, as weird as that sounds!

    Totally serious! It's made of crayon so you can draw with it! Guess you might want to do that with an edge at the back – but the guy who sold me it assured you could definitely do it! 😉
