This amazing vintage cookie tin was a gift from my dear friend Liz. She picked it up at a yard sale in Victoria for me. Thank you Lizzy! It's now filled with my stash of stamp packs.

After several weeks of striking and a lockout, Canada Post is back to delivering mail today. I'm looking forward to seeing letters and postcards piled up inside our mailbox once again!
P.S. Gaelen stamped her wedding invitations with my vintage stamps. From the kraft paper envelopes to the printed map they're beauties!

I swear the art of handwriting is slowly being lost. Joseph's grannie sends us lovely, long letters every few months. Before reading the letters I just sit and stare at her script. It's from another time.
P.S. Canada Post is now locked out across the country. It's heartbreaking to think of all of the empty mailboxes.

Today is Joey's birthday which means some celebrating is going down! We'll start the day with brunch at Aunties + Uncles and then see where the day takes us. In the week leading up to his birthday I always hide his birthday cards that arrive in the mail and pile them up for his birthday morning. Tea + cards to start his day!

Earlier this week my Parchment Post summer collection arrived. It's such a treat to receive a package full of notecards! These lovelies are by the Macon York, Screech Owl Design, Claudia Pearson + Chef Sung Uni Lee, Deadweight, Present & Correct and A Favorite Design.
P.S. Canada Post is officially on strike, rotating cities evey 24 hours. Today Winnipeg, tomorrow Hamilton. I'm hopeful that a satisfying resolution for all is in the near future.

My mailbox has been full of lovely letters and packages lately. A few of note are:
- Many letters from my dearest Phillipa including one typed on party ribbon.
- Rhya's mini fox diorama.
- A handmade zippered pouch from Laura. (I'm in love with the frog fabric!)
- A sweet set of cards from Courtney of Swiss Cottage Designs in Brooklyn.

It's up! My second guest blog post for The Paper Place is all about making your own stationery and keeping cool on hot summer days.
In other news, I'm a student once again! In a matter of days I went from considering school to being registered. Yesterday was my first day of Italian class! My class is tiny (only five students) and I have a wonderful Sicilian instructor. Now all I need is a pencil case. (The ziploc baggie just won't do!)
