Dear scuffed up mailboxes,
Thank you for your service. You deserve a spa day like your bright blue comrades on the left side of the truck just received.
Love, Viva Snail Mail
Among other lovely birthday gifts, I received the children’s book A Letter For Leo from my husband. Yes I am an adult but I love a well illustrated children’s book, especially one that features an animal mailman who longs to receive paper mail! Buy this VSM approved book by Sergio Ruzzier as a holiday gift for someone big or small.
Over spring break we had a fantastic trip to Philadelphia. I love that city! A highlight for my kids was the Smith Playground and its 40 feet long giant slide and indoor play mansion, where I spied this VSM approved toy.
From Miroslav Sasek’s beautiful 1960 children’s book, This is New York.
I think this fantastic mailbox embellishment may be the work of the women behind Good Mail Day but in the un-credited world of the internet jpeg, I am not certain. In any case I LOVE it!
My family got several hand delivered valentines- so sweet.
The handmade cards, of course, slay me but I am also so fond of this store bought card that my son got from a friend at school.
But by post the yield was small this year. Good thing I got valentine mail on Wednesday and Friday because on Thursday, Valentines Day, all there was in my mailbox was a real estate brochure and a credit card bill. I was actually quite depressed. But then I remembered that whole ‘better to give than receive’ thing and all the other blessings in my life and I stopped pouting. Thanks so much to all the people who gave us a little paper affection this year.
