Mammoths and gel pens

Standard

Yesterday I went to the post office to pick up a package and send off some letters. The lady behind the counter was super sweet and complimented my envelopes :D
I noticed that they had a new design of stamps, so I had to buy them. One of the stamps has a baby dinosaur on it! :O <3

frimärkenHere they are! The theme is “objects in Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet” (National Natural History Museum).

sarasa clipAnd this is what was in my package! New gel pens :D Sarasa Clip 0.5. I have never used these pens before, but someone recommended them on Instagram, and I thought they looked really pretty, so of course I had to buy them. Also, my favourite colours of the gel pens I have at home have ran out, so I needed a refill. I love them and can’t wait to write letters with them. The colours are great, and they write very smoothly.

The copper inflation

20140725_170952nyHello friends! I am currently in the Swedish region Hälsingland where my family lives and where I grew up. This beautiful little church is standing in our home village, and it’s from the 12th century.

20140726_124621nyDuring my stay here I have visited a few flea markets.  There’s a lot of them around here during the summer, and it’s so fun to browse old stuff! This is the biggest one in Hälsingland, according to the interwebs.

20140726_142122nyHere’s another flea market. It had a room full of copper! All the places we visited were full of copper pans and pots and what not. I guess copper’s not hip enough to get a loving home. I think they’re pretty though!

20140726_180248nyI have bought two things during my flea market adventures in Hälsingland, both of them snail mail related! Here’s a little letter holder. I have no idea how old it is, but I like the steampuunkesque style of it. And my letter holder at home is always full so I could use an addition!

20140726_180410nyAnd then we have this little thing of beauty!  I just couldn’t resist it! It’s so small and cute and the keys are the most gorgeous dark burgundy red. It seems to be in a good condition. I’ll try to give it a clean up and hope it’ll work smoothly! I have ordered some ink ribbons for it already: black and purple! :D

I have also written and sent some mail during my stay here, but I’ll post pictures of that next week. I hope you guys are having a great weekend!

 

Kawaii haul!

Standard

When I got my pay I treated myself to some kawaii goods :) And in this process I found a new etsy shop that might become one of my favourites!

from ErikoHere’s the package I got from the new etsy shop that I found, called SweetSuppliesStore. The service was excellent, and I got my order after only 4 workdays even though it’s sent from Japan! (Take that, incredibly slow American postal line!) SweetSuppliesStore has a lot of cute kawaii goods and washi tapes, and Eriko who runs it is very nice. I can really recommend this store if you:
1. like washi tape
2. like kawaii stationery
3. like birds, especially budgies :D

from Eriko 2This is the little pile of cuteness that I ordered from SweetSuppliesStore :) She also included some extra mini notes and sticker flakes. I look forward to use all this in my letters!

from mikiThen I made a little purchase at an old favourite kawaii shop of mine: KawaiiShopJapan. Yet again, nice seller, excellent service, and fast shipping! This is the package I got :)

from Miki 2And here is all the kawaii stationery goodness I bought from KawaiiShopJapan, plus a pile of extra mini notes she sent me. And seriously Japan, it’s not okay to make a cake out of a sheep like that! O__O

washisHere  are samples of the washi tapes I bought from the two shops. Aren’t they cute? :D I’m in love with the pandas with ribbons and the cute cats!

The Unicorn & the Clock

sealsI might have gone on a shopping spree at HappyJewelrySupplies again for more sealing wax and seals, and I might have received these items very recently. I look forward to try all these pretty colours and two seals out!
