Hi, I'm Ashlee and I'm 40 years old living in a small town with my husband, twin daughters, dog, and many fish.
I love photography, painting, drawing, and pretty much any kind of art and craft. Mail makes me happy and I love postage stamps, vintage stuff, washi, and postcards. I adore the outdoors, hiking, sunshine, and car trips. I spend much time cooking and I love growing herbs and gardening. I make perfume and soap for a living.
I'm an easy going person and finding little random friendly mail in my mailbox makes me happy! I love the little connections with people from all over the world.
Makes Me Happy
Stickers and Washi...I do use both of these to decorate my mail
Postcards: I love vintage postcards, both previously posted and new. I also love anything to do with nature, animals, landscapes, art, cartoons, comics, illustrations, retro, travel posters, black and white photographs, fantasy, sci-fi, magic, weird and strange things. I do collect Lantern Press and anything from State or National Parks.
Postage Stamps: I collected stamps when I was younger. I misplaced my whole collection during one of our moves. Hopefully I will find it again someday. In the meantime I'm having fun starting my collection over again. I love all vintage stamps. For newer issues, I love animals, birds, fish, insects, plants, holiday, cartoon, art, military, space/science, religion (all types), and cowboys/western. New or used, on paper or off...they're all fun!
Reading through the Harry Potter series again with my girls, never get tired of them.
