I have mentioned the amazing Missa of thriftcandy in this blog before. She is a sender-of -packages, my long-lost-style-twin, and just all-around adorable and inspirational. So imagine the giddy heights of delight I floated to, when a rain-sodden mailman rang my doorbell this morning, carrying this beautiful package all the way from sunny Californ-i-a:
Covered in pretty postcards and pictures, all of which I am sure to carefully cut out and place on my inspiration board, the package contained great many treasures, including (but NOT limited to) the dress I am wearing above.
This little medicine pouch is so reminiscent of this recent Missa-outfit, which I loved.
Unfortunately you can't really make it out in all it's glory, but THIS my friends is a genuine Alaska-charm-bracelet, complete with seals, igloos, inuits, totem poles, salmon and bears. It is divine and Missa bought it the day before my post on Alaska. Co-incidence? I think not.
A bookmark and the box that contained the Alaska-bracelet.
Some kind of wonderful, don't you think? Regardless of the information age, there is still such pleasure to sending and receiving mail. It requires effort, though, it isn't done quite so casually, as an email, or a wall-post on friend's facebook profile. Don't get me wrong. It's only thanks to the wonders of the internets, that I even know Missa, and many other wonderful girls and ladies around the world, but still, I love a good old-fashioned postcard every once in a while.
So in the spirit of anachronistic communication I hereby declare that any of you who'd like a mail communique from your truly, post their address to either the comment box, of this post, or my email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Go ahead, indulge me.
And Missa, thank you so much for being my wonderful long-distant friend. You don't feel all that distant.
