Comment: Thank you So Much, for the envelope of fun! I enjoyed sorting through it all. Loved reading your letter! Raising ducks sounds joyful. I’ve heard your area is beautiful! I liked the quote & will look into that book. The artful peacock paper napkin is very pretty, love the extra postcards (didn’t have either & cherish them) & love the assortment of stickers! I love Mrs. G’s (worked at & the Container Store in college & would use my discount to buy them 😄); I am not that familiar with Pipsticks, though. Thanks a bunch! 💕 ~ Z
