magic mailbag



I love getting fun things in the mail... especially when it doesn't fall in the category of bills, junk mail or wrong address letters. So, I thought I would share some etsy goodies I got in the mail this week... two of which I won through giveaways! Woop Woop!... I am one lucky gal!

The first pic is of two cute notebooks I ordered from Earmark Invitations (one for me, one for Roger)... hmmm... can you guess the owl-y one is for me? I can't wait to start using it! The other notebook has a Hunter S. Thompson quote on the cover... one of Roger's favourite writers.

The second pic is a lovely decoupage glass plate from Julie's Adorabowls that I won through BonBon Rose Girls blog... thanks ladies!! I love it! This will have a happy home displayed on our coffee table.

The third pic is a cute russian matryoshka doll lavender sachet I won from geschichtenvonkat (the story of kat)... isn't it cute? I wish there was a scratch-n-sniff portion to this post, so you can smell its springy lavender scent.

Oh, I wish every mail day was like this. Hope everyone has a happy weekend!
ps. don't forget to enter my spring/earth day giveaway... last day is Sunday! Check back Monday to see if you've won!

Cute prizes! Congrats!


I call my mailbox my billbox. If someone asks how to get here I tell them to turn left just past my billbox. I think many people are now calling their mailboxes, their bill boxes! LOL

Love the glass dish. What fun to get all these treats at once in the billbox! (Rather like that term.)
