~ Mid-Week Mail Bag ~

A wonderful mail week! Beautiful envelopes, lovely letters and postcards graced my mailbox.  I am grateful.  Correspondence continues with Pals from Sendsomething and other means.  It was truly an International week with mail from Belgium, Italy, U.K., Canada and the US.  I am definitely busy with replies and hope to get current in a short amount of time.

If you do not  know Limner, you should.  Her artwork speaks for itself.  So glad she's utilizing it as stationery so recipients of her letters, like me, can enjoy over and over.  Thanks Limner!

~ Thrifty-Thursday Finds ~

Imagine my surprise to come across a complete set of Crane's note cards with a tiny tortoise on the front  for $1.51.  In addition, a pack of 30 envelopes, a pad of 100-page lined stationery AND a new set of note cards for a total of $2.50.  I know I am set for a quite a while with stationery needs, but these are too good to pass up.  What are your latest Finds?

~ Thrifty-Thursday FINDS ~

Was out and about on normal errands when I stopped in a Thrift Shop along the way to see what new and interesting things they had.   

I came across 6 packs of 50-sheet Letter Head listed at .99 per pack ( 5 blue and 1 red)  and a wrapped package of 6 packs of 50-count Envelopes.  Yes, I am buying winter letterhead in April.    

Now here's the best part. This week was a Yellow/Y special so all things with this code were 50% off!  For 300 sheets and envelopes each,  I paid a total of $3.99.  I certainly call this a FIND!  I believe I am set for the winter months of writing.

~ Sunday Send-Out ~

The writing bug has gotten a hold of me! Cards and letters are headed to the UK, Canada and various locations across the US.  Some are for Easter, some are introductions and others are replies.  I feel quite accomplished today.  The envelopes aren't fancy.  All are adorned.  Some are "business in the front, party in the back".  My focus was the content of the letter/card.  At times, I struggle for what to say, but not this day.  Today I was feeling quite chatty and the words flowed onto the paper.

I can't really say what the inspiration was, other than a quote I heard recently.  "Stop living in the past, you can't be in two places at once." This was very meaningful to me.

Have you come across a quotation or heard a statement that resinated with you?
