Not much to report in terms of elevated envelope news (although mine are almost ready to post) but there has been some exciting movement in the letter box this week. (all iphone shots...)
First the outs - one of my post cards to some friends we haven't seen for a while. The doily envelopes were part of the experiment for the other mail project - I like how they've turned out so will use that idea.
Much more exciting are the ins.
Lovely postcards from NZ (my brother and his partner have just had a quick trip there) for the children. My lovely flickr friend sent that view from a Parisian window... sooo envious!
I love it when friends take the time and effort to send postcards from overseas. We all enjoy looking at the stamps, reading the news and then learning where places are on the map.
The last shot is a pincushion I ordered as a little present to myself from Shelley. I've been losing pins and needles down the couch when I'm sewing at night and thought this might make me a bit more responsible. I can hardly bear to stick a pin in...its so beautiful.
The other exciting (for now) mail was our power bill. A zero balance on our winter account. Clearly someone has made a big mistake!! We'll enjoy it for a week or two and then I'll ring and ask for the real amount (which won't be pretty - the tumble dryer and the heating have been on fairly continuously in recent times - wet beds, sick kids, damp Hobart weather etc etc).
Do you use a tumble dryer?Are you scared of your power bills?
