Last week my mailbox was filled with postcards!  A handmade beauty from Liz, a vintage San Fran postie from Jenn and a Deadweight card from Alison.  Thanks for keeping my mailbox full ladies!

piles of stamps

This is what it looks like when I'm drinking tea, listening to old scratchy music and making stamp packs. True love!

P.S. I recently made a facebook page for Send More Mail!

Valentine's Day was lovely.  Paper hearts filled my favourite park.  Red, pretty mail filled my mailbox. Then my evening was spent with Joey + strawberry shortcakes + Shameless.

P.S. A great big thank you to Tanya for our amazing (fluorescent pink!) Valentines.

filled with hearts

My letters lately have been pink and red and totally filled with hearts.  Tons of Valentines are on their way to the mailboxes of friends and family.  And I've received quite a few lovelies myself!  

Thank you for all the Love & Rummage love out there!

Parchment Post giveaway!

Who doesn't love their mailbox filled with pretty things?  Parchment Post is a subscription service of carefully selected cards from small, indie producers.  Jamie from Parchment Post was kind enough to offer one lucky reader a year's subscription.  That means six super beautiful cards hand-picked and sent to you every three months!    

It gets even better!  Two other readers will get a collection of three cards inspired by love.

All you have to do is sign up for the mailing list here and leave a comment below (with your email address) by February 13th at midnight.  I'll announce the three winners on Valentine's Day.  How sweet!

handmade heaven

Yesterday's trunk show was handmade heaven!  Seriously.  I had a case of the jitters all weekend but quickly relaxed once surrounded by all of the super lovely crafters. Thank you to everyone who came by.  It was such a lovely day.  Now I can't wait to get writing some letters on my new (and gorgeous) stationery!

Friday, February 4, 2011


I made a few pre-stamped envelopes for the show this weekend.  Each one is different and just waiting for a love note to be tucked inside and mailed to your sweetheart!
