Oppy Finds

Before I went to Canberra did a quick oppy shop and found some christmas decorations that they had put out for christmas in July. It made me so excited for christmas! I go crazy at the op shops during christmas time - I filled a whole suitcase with vintage christmas decorations last year alone!

Snail Mail

Hello again! Ok I'm back to posting for good now :-) Camping was a blast! It's winter here so it was pretty darn cold but we had a campfire to keep us warm and to toast marshmellows on :-D

I got back from Canberra to a heap of pretty mail, I was ever so excited! The pile below consists of various postcards (that horse one on top is holographic!), some lovely long letters and a parcel with a new ink ribbon for my typewriter!

I spent all of today catching up on the blogs I haven't read in the past week and replying to mail. It was delightful :-)

I received an absolutely amazing letter filled with vintage goodies from Sara who always posts beautiful pictures on her blog 'random places/familiar faces'. 

She also sent me two lovely photos which are now on my wall above my new cactus :-D

I'm back :-) Alas, I do not have any posts as I am going camping tomorrow. I know, crazy right. I am so ready to sit and relax and do something crafty, but adventure calls. Uni holidays will be over at the end of the month, and then I will be back to post about all the amazing snail mail I received whilst I was gone :-D

I love this photo. My camping spot will be nowhere near as scenic, but we are on the beach so it will still be lovely :-)

Goodbye for now

It's uni holidays here so tomorrow I will be leaving to work for a few weeks in Canberra at a cat and dog kennels :-) My little blog will be neglected whilst I am hanging out with all the adorable cats and dogs. So I will leave you with this great photo and be back in a couple of weeks. taa-taa!
