    1. You're welcome! One thing I've learned in the last couple of years, is that beauty can be found everywhere and that you don't necessarily need fancy or expensive things to be happy.

    1. I am happy to have learned in the last years that those moments don't have to be 'big' things, but that they can occur in everyday life!

    1. A very happy mailbox! I even think I saw it make a little happy dance :-)

  14. I would have been the happiest if I receive the same gifts from the mail. The only thing I receive from the mail today are credit card bills LOL and I hate them. I don't often encounter people who still appreciate stamps like I do. Although for me, the collection stopped years ago. But I still have the stamps with me.

    I'm interested with the DIY project from the buttons.

    The lamps are for the win! Is that inside a store or restaurant?

    I'm totally clueless about the pop quiz marathon. But it looks so interesting!

    1. The lamps are in a restaurant, felt a bit awkward snapping a pic. THe marathon was with teams of 5 people, most rounds where song fragments, where you needed to write down song title and name of the artists. It was loads of fun, even though we didn't do that good of a job this year...

  15. Love all those stamps! I used to collect them from around the world when I was a kid. Brings back memories of long distance pen friends in the days before the internet!
