^ I really like the cartoonishness of this. It reminds me a lot of Betty and Ms. Grundy from the Archie comics.
^ I like the art in this one that mixes the cartoon with a vintage photo - a cute saying to go with the picture, as well.
^ Again, the artwork of the 50's/60's wows me. You can kind of get an idea of what the guy was like who's estate the auction was for. He definately liked the ladies.
^ I like this one because it's so true. A woman will walk around in the tiniest things on the beach and no one cares, but as soon as the same thing happens in town, it's a different story. Again with the pervy-ness of the former owner. lol. This is the last one for today. Hopefully before we leave to go to the auction tomorrow I'll get a chance to scan some more in - there's some old cityscapes that are pretty cool as well that I nabbed.
Today I feel like I got nothing done because I only managed to get one letter written. Yesterday and today I've been so blessed with mail, I was jumping up and down with giddy-ness, I kid you not. Let me share some of them with you:
I got this postcard from Sibylle who I met through Suicide Girls on the penpals forum there. I love the raving rabbids on the postcard - has anyone else played Rayman? The rabbids are awesome :)
Also from Sibylle was this beatiful envelope of loveliness:
^ And this lovely artwork arrived today from a new penpal and blog reader Courtenay. She read how to make her own envelopes and put the how-to to good use, as you can see. Beautiful map envelope and awesome Christmas stamps. Seasonal or not, they rock - and so does she!
^This cute little postcard came from my best friend Insa in Germany as a promise to write more soon. She's been super busy lately, and I can relate. A sign of life from her is great, though - I tend to worry. And look at that cute calf and that dress is adorable. Woot.
^ This one is from my penpal Hyunji in Korea - she always sends the prettiest things, I swear. And those dinosaur stamps are wicked. My husband saw them and yoinked the letter right out of my hand. He swears he's not addicted to stamps, but I know differently ;) She also has the neatest little handwriting ever. So cute.
^ I have yet to open this huge package of awesomeness from my new penpal Sara - I'm so excited just looking at the time she spent on the envelope itself, but I'm not going to have time to sit down and write until tomorrow or Thursday and I don't want to lose anything.
I need an outgoing mailbox by the door. I just need to find a nice one that I can screw to the wall. I'm paranoid of losing letters with the dogs about. Tails have a tendancy to knock things on the floor and I may never see them again. Boo urns. Maybe I'll make one. I'll keep you guys posted.
That's all for today - happy thoughts, everyone!
