Emily who blogs over at thimble cat sent me the most amazing parcel the other week. I was seriously on a parcel high all day. I'm sure if you saw me you would of seen the huge shock of surprise/ excitement on my face (and maybe also a dropped jaw) as I opened it :p
Silly Australia post for scribbling over such a beautifully decorated box - just adding to my list of why I really don't like our postal service here in Australia :(
But enough negativity check out all my awesome loot *gasp*
Ever since I saw Emily's amazing tea cosey collection I've been hoping/praying I'd stumble across my own koala cosey. My efforts have been completely fruitless so imagine my surprise when Mr koala fell out of the parcel!!
She also sent through some amazing vintage hair clips, a cute cat book - with the idea to make a little scrapbook for gremlin inside (perfect idea) also badges and a feather for my collection - score! Not forgetting some super kawaii page markers and a watermelon napkin holder to match my coaster set!
One of my most favourite things from the parcel was this vintage Big Banana postcard. I honestly am shocked she is able to find such gems because every time I look through the stacks of postcards at my thrift stores I always leave empty handed :( You may remember the last letter I got from Emily that had that amazing postcard from Haw Par Villa! Anyway this time my postcard came complete with hand written tales. I'm going to type out what was written because it honestly made me giggle :)
Dear Kevin and Ellen,
I'm writing this at 11:00pm Sunday Night while Rich is watching T.V. We arrived at Ballina at about 9:00p.m. We picked these cards up at Coffs. this afternoon. So far we are going well, should reach Surfers at about 10 o'clock tomorrow. We have travelled 450 miles today, there is nothing much to say in this card cause we haven't done anything. Well what I can write down. Must go now we'll write soon.
Lots of love,
Lyn and Dick
And on the left hand side it says
I was very sick coming up though, I think it was a touch of food poisoning that sweet and sour chicken last night. Rich was getting sick of pulling over while I was being sick. The night life is terrific so far all we do is watch T.V. I've married a T.V. maniac all he wants to do is watch T.V. amongst other things"
And then if you look closely at the picture she has drawn an arrow that points to his name 'Dick' and underlined the word, other :P
Ha ha ha ha. Someone needs to write a screen play based on this postcard, it's so Aussie and funny. My guess it's their honeymoon - I just love that she is so honest :)
Thanks Emily you made my day and probably week!
