Chocolate Puppies, Butterfly Water and Athos.

Oh how I love my Sunday's.
I look forward to endermologie every single week.
Yep, I think I'm a lifer.
It feels so good and it gets my blood circulating.
I feel so invigorated when my treatment is finished, like I can take on the world.
Ha!
 
I received the cutest card from Postcrossing yesterday.
My husband wanted to keep it for himself because he fell in love with the image too.
 
Here's the incoming mail:
 
 
An official Postcrossing from Germany.
The sender writes:
Hi JarieLyn,
I'm 20 years old and from Germany.
I sent you a cute dog card :)
I hope you like it.
You also write that you like trains, so I take a stamps with a german trains :)
Have a nice day.
Marija
 
Did you fall in love with these pups too?
 
 
An official Postcrossing from the Netherlands.
The sender writes:
Hello JarieLyn!
It's almost Easter, but when I look outside I see no spring.
It's quite cold and the weather man pronounces snow :(
That will be (??) at home and play some games.
I also play songpop.
It's under the name of my son: (XXXXXX)
My fave music is 80's and 70's.
It's music from my childhood, that's why I like it so much.
You may invite me if you want :)
I wish you all the best in life and maybe I hear from you by songpop.
Martine.
P.S. I love sun so that's why I choose this card, because it gives me a feeling of summer and sunshine.
 
 
A letter from Becky.
 
 
A thank you card from Lisa with a photo of her dog Athos on the cover.
Isn't he beautiful?
I bet he's smart too.
A Postcard from Doreen who just started postcrossing.
She's also a blogging friend and the only blogger/pen pal I've ever met in person.
You can read her blog here.
It was a pleasant surprise to get a postcard from her.!
I was tickled pink.
 
 
A letter from John and an article about a postman in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
It was quite an interesting article and of course, so was the letter.
 
 
An upcyled vintage postcard from John.
The orginal postcard which is the image in the background is from 1906, Dublin, Ireland.
The little pieces of writing are also from vintage postcards.
I really like this one a lot.
Very creative.
Can you see what the one on the bottom left says?
"She had been out to the bath chair the day before. Going out does her a wonderful lot of good."
 
I have been getting such great mail lately.
I love it.
 
Here's what I sent out:
 
 
A Letter to Lisa.
 
 
A letter to another pen pal.
 
 
An official Postcrossing on its way to Taiwan.
 
 
An official Postcrossing on the way to Finland.
 
 
This is for one of my partners for quick notecard swap #4.
 
This is for the other partner for quick notecard swap #4.
 
And that concludes the mail for this fine week.
 
Last night I was making my own postcards for another swap.
I'll post those later today or tomorrow.
 
Enjoy the rest of this day my friends.
