So I am now home again after a trip to family and friends. It has been really nice to see my family, I already miss them. 1000 kilometers is a long distance when you don’t own a car.
I had some lovely mail waiting for me when I got back home, but I will save those pictures to later; tonight (it’s actually more early morning than night, but it’s too hot to sleep) I want to show you some amazing paper ephemera that travelled home with me from Hälsingland (the region of Sweden in which my family lives).
I also scouted a couple of flea markets (lots of those around during the summer times), and found some books with pretty illustrations – for envelopes and mail art of course ;) I might frame a couple of pictures from the fairytale book on the right though. They are absolutely adorable!
And here is a true treasure: various magazines from between 1910 to 1948. The history nerd in me wants to kill the crafter in me for cutting these up, but I compromise by reading the articles before I hurry away to my paper crafting zone.
I have a lot of letter writing to do, and I hope to get started in the near future before the next semester starts. I will have a bachelor thesis to write this autumn. And yes, I have very patient penpals, and I am grateful for every one of them. I’ll be back soon with some incoming mail pictures :)
