Since I posted the last snail mail related post two days ago, my mail man has been busy for sure.
I got a few postcards. One from Rosie, with whom I had a swap of wildlife postcards, and one from Julie. The bottom one I ordered, it’s stamped 1948 and the picture is of the market square in my town. In the building to the left, or rather, in the house that stands there now, is my job office. I like old postcards from around here, over the years I’ve collected a bunch of them. I have a few framed too, but they’re not on display at the moment.
Letters from Germany, Illinois and California! Look at the owl! I love owls!
I wish I’d thought of this first, Erin sent me a letter written on copied recipes! How fun is that?! I’ll have to put them in a plastic bag if I try them out, or I’m sure I’ll spill something over them and that just wouldn’t do.
They’re in French, and although my French is absolutely terrible, I’m pretty sure I could figure out how to make it! Now I just need to find someone who can actually eat sugar, because my body would go on a full strike if I even tried to eat something called “sugar pie” ;)
Here is news about me; I love stamps. See, I grew up with a father who collects them, so I learned early to actually look at stamps, to see them. Part of the fun with letters and postcards is definitely seeing what kind of stamps people put on their letters. This Australian one is just fantastic!
I love churches, I love Germany, of course I love this stamp. But there’s more. It pictures Altstadt Regensburg, which is a medieval part of the city of Regensburg that has been preserved to this day. It is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, and it’s definitely on my list of places I want to go visit. Amazing!
Can I just say that I love the new US Global Forever Stamps? As far as I understand, they were released with the new increase in postage fees. They are absolutely amazing! I’ve gotten a few letters with these on and I’m just as happy every time!
As for outgoing mail, I’m definitely a bit behind, because I’ve been busy studying and cooking. Anyway, three letters going out in the past two days;
The green envelope has a wax seal on the back, I bought myself a wax gun a while ago and figured it was time to try it out! Two of them aren’t stamped yet, simply because I don’t actually have any stamps for domestic mail, I’ll have to drop them off at a post office.
That’s all for now, sorry about the huge post!
