The one with World Post Day

Did you know that today is World Post Day? It happens every year on october 9 and was first declared at the Universal Postal Union Congress in Tokyo in 1969. I'm an old fashioned girl that loves handwritten and stamped mail. Even though I don't collect stamps, I do appreciate a pretty one! Some of them are little pieces of art. Today I sent out mail to my granny, a friend I met in Spain (during a language course) and a friend who lives 2,5 hours away from me. And after work I've found two cards in my mailbox: hooray! Are there more 'real' mail lovers over here?





And another hooray! One of my bags got featured today over at Jillian's blog!

  3. I love snail mail. It's the best thing ever- and such a sweet, caring touch from the person sending it to you. I had no idea today was World Post Day, thanks for the knowledge! I hope you are having a wonderful day! And I love your Etsy shop by the way, so many fun and cool items!! :)

  4. Oh my! I love "real" mail! That's why I make cards! Getting a personal letter is so special. Especially if it is on pretty stationary with pretty stamps! Thanks for the inspiration to write more letters!

  5. Congrats on the feature:) And I think there's nothing like a hand-written mail. When my older sis moved to the US, we used to write to each other, and it was awesome.

  7. I'm kind of over "old-school" mail. I like the immediacy of email and texting, sharing ideas and feelings in the moment. But the stamps are still really cool!

  8. I didn't know about World Post Day. I think it would be fun to get together and exchange some blogger mail next year. What do you think?
