Comment: Thank you so much for the delightful bird washi-adorned thick envelope, Colleen! I appreciated coming home to your lovely letter (congratulations to you and your husband for his upcoming milestone -- I so miss riding the train!) -- I haven't traveled as much as I would have liked, but I love to read :), beautiful vintage postcards, watercolor-like washi, and ephemera (I wonder if I can figure out which French book is the source of the pages :) I look forward to using them and the Chinese money in collage!). Thank you for sharing a little about yourself and for brightening my overcast day :)
Response: your very welcome, so glad you enjoyed everything. Happy swapping.
Comment: Oh my Colleen, You did make me very happy with your PL!!!!!! I love all the ATC's with the small embellishments...hope I can find some like them in the near future..I don't get out like I used to because of the heat..we have been having a big heat wave..high 90's and I just have to stay inside so that I can breathe!!!! I am not familiar where your city is, but, being near the beach sounds wonderful to me right now!! I love the Ozark Mtns. but, would just love to go to the beach one more time!!!!!!
