Vintage rules!

It still is one of my favorite themes to work with: vintage. I just love to combine little gifts in the same color and decorate everything the same way.
So yes, an other vintage snail mail :)

Autumn is coming!

This time I send a lovely autumn snail mail, it really fits this time of the year. I love working with the real autumn colors, like orange and brown.
The "star" of this snail mail is the lovely hedgehog! I bought this one, but I really want to make those myself, it is so cute! I bought one for myself as well ;)
Further a handmade card, some coffee and tea for the cold days that are coming up, a couple of labels, leaves and mushrooms for some nice autumn decoration.
Have a great autumn this year and enjoy the beautiful colors of nature :)

Glass jars great for storage and fun to decorate!

I bought some awesome glass jars. Two very big ons, in one of them I storage my deco- and washitapes and in three little ones I keep my buttons.
But besides storage, they are really fun to decorate! Just look at the pictures and try it yourself!

I decorated the lid of the jar with decotape. Al you need is: a jar, some decotape and scissors.
I matched the colors of the decotape with the colors of the buttons I store in the jar.

Some great new stamps!

Today we (my fiancĂ© and myself  :-) ) went to the Creabeurs in Rijswijk. A very nice indoor market with only creative items. A lot of stamps, scrapbooking supplies, wool and a lot of other stuff.
I was really looking for a stamp of a peacock and a stamp of a snail. And I was so lucky to find both! :-)
I also got a lot of other stamps and some plastic bags that are great to use for snail mail!

Just red

A couple of days ago I made this lovely red snail mail for Daphne (my name-buddy!) She also has an awesome blog: Daphne en de wereld.
I tried to use only red stuff, so I made some little envelopes, a little booklet that fitted tea, a flagline with her name on it and a lot of other stuff. :)

Two snail mails that made my day!

After delivering mail myself for 5 hours in the rain, I was happy to find these lovely snail mails in my mailbox. The first one with some lovely owl goodies and a cool keychain with my name on it!
The other one is also very cute, with some birds and a lovely heart.

Vintage, vintage, vintage. . . Just love it!

And again a vintage snail mail, a lot of people love vintage these times (and so do I). This time I made a tag myself, some envelopes made of wallpaper and to complete it some flowers and pictures. And of course the envelope to send it in.
