It's Been Awhile

I do apologize for my lapse in posting...apparently life gets in the way of blogging just as it does with writing letters. =/

In this post I wanted to share a few things I picked up from of the local thrift stores and then also some mail that is going out. The first thing I found at the local shop was these wonderful cards.

As you can see, these are cards that you insert your own photo into. That photo is one that I took while on vacation in Mexico. =)

They all have different sayings on the front..like Serenity, Dream, Happy Birthday, and the one pictured says: A thing of beauty is a joy for ever. -John Keats. And as you can see from the second picture...I got a whole slew of them. I am even toying with the idea of selling some on Etsy. If I ever decide to actually set up shop (haha,...I have always wanted to say that).

They really do make lovely gifts and I got the whole lot for 10 bucks. Not bad if I do say so myself. I have already used a few. They are even great to turn into postcards by cutting the back off of. Anyway, how about another thrift store find?

Isn't this the cutest little journal? The cover is made of leaves of some kind. I am sad to say there is no label inside, so I cannot tell what type they are or who made it. But the paper on the inside is very nice as well, seems handmade. (of course I didnt take a picture of it..that would have made sense).

And finally I think I will share a quick picture of a few things I am sending out. =)

And speaking of that...I think I will leave this here and work on responding to some more letters. =)
