You've got mail

Spending time away from home can make a return to the routine tricky so it’s nice when you come across little things that ease you back into your everyday life. That’s what happened to me recently when I was looking through the pile of mail I’d received while I’d been away. Most of it was pretty uninspiring and then I noticed a bright pink envelope with lovely designs all over it and suddenly felt more energetic about going through all the post. It was a letter from Crystal of The House of Hearts. A while ago she posted about doing a recipe exchange so she could fill up her new recipe box. It sounded like a great idea so I signed up to it and it had completely slipped my mind until I saw her card. I was amazed by all the little bits and pieces she had included – the tiny stickers and even a fortune cookie message. I will need to think of a good recipe to send back to Crystal now. If you are interested in joining in, let her know, her recipe box may still be in need of your culinary expertise.

And if you decide not to join in on the fun, I recommend you take a look around Crystal's blog anyway because it's full of interesting posts. 

What do you think about these kinds of projects? Isn't it great to see that the blogging universe isn't restricted to the screen?



  1. this sounds like such a wonderful project! and it's always good to get stuff in the post (i'm forever sending letters, what is this email concept?) i like how bloggers can do this (:

  2. Hi Rebecca, thanks for your comment. It is a brilliant project, isn't it? Good to hear that you are a letter-sending pro, keep it up! :)

  3. Oh I am so happy that this brought you some joy! I love getting mail after time away from home, it gives you something to look forward too. I hope you liked everything and thanks for sharing my receipe swap.
    I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons.
    Much Love,

  4. Hi Crystal! It did make me very happy indeed. Don't worry I've not forgotten about sending you one's just you set the standards so high I need to take my time to send you a good recipe back but I hope to get it in the post to you soon :)

  5. Recipe and letters! This is a good partnership I think. And by the way, the pink envelopes is lovely as well as the designs.
