Little things often make me happy.
Today (Sunday) I woke up feeling kinda flat. You know when you have those kinda days? The kids were at their dad's house and I was missing them and not feeling very excited about anything. So, I used my typical antidote... and call me a shallow cliche if you like, but this really does the trick for me - I put on some pretty clothes, did my make-up and hair and headed off for some serious shopping.
And it all paid off when I found just what I have been looking for at Typo. I've had my eyes out for a letter-holder for a while but nothing was quite right... but this is perfect. I was so thrilled that I couldn't wait to tell the kids when I picked them up from their dad's. I think they thought I'd gone nuts.
First of all here's a before photo, showing the spot where my letters used to sit before they got mailed.
That's a postcrossing postcard and a letter to Joseph in Illinois, that got mailed last week. I guess they look fine, but I really felt they needed a little receptacle.
Now, see how great my mail looks sitting in its new letter-holder.
That's a letter to Lynn, a friend who lives on a property just out of Yass, and a postcard to Hawkk in Oregon.
Now all I need is to find the perfect letter-opener and my life will be complete. :-)
Love from Kaz
