They've Arrived!!!

I invited them in for Sencha and cookies.
They stayed through the gin and tonic hour.
And now I'm VERY pleased to say, they're trotting their papery little behinds on over to the Shop!  It's high time we had another round of postcards, don't you think?  After all, mail is one of my favorite things on this green earth, so why don't we all send a little more of it!
Collections: A Plethora of Post

I'm a fiend for collecting.  I stuff feathers in mason jars.  I pile stones on window ledges.  I love looking at bones, smoothing fingertips along antlers, finding sea glass in jacket pockets, driftwood in zippered bags, pressed ferns in books and eucalyptus pods in the consol of the car.  I adore bringing the outdoors in, steeping myself in nature while I cook, clean, work, relax, connecting... connecting... to that dust which I am made of and the world which inspires my breath and hands.
In my own home I compulsively arrange these particles of beauty for no other reason that it fills my soul and brings joy to my heart to surround myself with that which I love.  In that spirit, these cards came along and nearly arranged themselves; I just acted as the conductor in their little polka party.

And so with that said, I offer you my newest series of post: a limited edition set of four cards (plus a little bonus love), thick stock and glossy faces, images of small vignettes, little collections.  All items in these photos have either been created by me, collected by my hands, or gifted by those who know me well.  They hold stories, they tell tales.  They've traveled the world and seen more history than I can even imagine.  And now, in postcard form, they're ready to travel the globe.

Pens and Pencils UP!
Letter Writers Unite!
Let's send some cheer through this ol' postal service and light up mailboxes everywhere!

oh lordy I am the same always with jards and bowls and bags of things I find at the seashore. Living on the antrim coastline I have a lot of stuff. I am just waiting for a day when I feel well enough to do a good load of set ups and share my bounty with the world too xx
Namaste, kindred spirit

Abigail - Eek! Thanks! I'm so very excited about them too!!!

Carrie - Ha! It's nearly an obsession, you know? The seashore is an unending bounty of treasure just waiting to be admired.

Snailentina - Girlie, they're back in action now!!!
