So I got home from my first day at the excavation in Copenhagen today, to find my mailbox full of lovely mail!

Victor RussiaThen another postrossing card, this time the Assumption Cathedral in the city of Tobolsk in Russia! Me like :)

Polina, KyivAnd. This. A gorgeous jellyfish postcard that I received from Polina in Ukraine! We decided to do a private postcard swap on Instagram :) I will frame this little piece of prettyness.

swapbot tea 7I also received two tea swaps from swap-bot swaps. This handmade envelope is so gorgeous that I just have to show it to you guys! It’s from Debbie in the US.

frimärkenAnd last but definitely not least: vintage stamps that I bought at a Swedish auction site! (Much like ebay but without the paypal option. -__-) They are sooo pretty! And many! <3 I got these for about 15 usd less than their face value, and they’re in great condition! Can’t wait to use them on my letters :D  If you are my penpal and like any of them, just let me know and I’ll use them for my next letter to you.

swapbot jenna fiI have entered a stationery swap on swap-bot, and here’s the envelope I’m sending my swap in. It’s going to snailmailer in Finland. I hope she likes kawaii, since that’s what I have most of ;P And it was lots of fun to use many stamps on a big envelope :D

Tomorrow is the first day of my 8 weeks work placement at an excavation in Copenhagen. I’m super excited, but I hope I will not be too much of a bother to the professional archaeologists ;) I will probably be a bit off from letter writing and blogging since I will be gone from home almost 12 h per day, 5 days per week. My apologies to my penpals who are already waiting for a reply from me!
