Snail mail /7

As promised a peak at some awesome mail I received from Emily aka Thimble. You can see previous awesome mails from her, here and here with this parcel below being no exception to the awesomeness (be prepared for a lot of exclamation marks!)

First up some hella cute packaging!!


Emily makes confetti out of tissue paper which is an idea I'm definitely going to have copy at some stage!


And all the goodies!


Check out these insanely happy + kitschy vintage postcards - I have serious kitten regret I didn't get Gremlin into some of these scenarios when he was teeny tiny.


Ben probably thought I was a bit of a weirdo when I raced into his room all hyper and excited to show him my awesome stash including this Melbourne street art book.


I'm heading to Melbourne in May too for a holiday, staying with my awesome friend Emaya. Actually do you remember that was her Birthday present for me last year - plane tickets that I'm only now just cashing in - slacko!


The book is super awesome and features Ghost Patrol (above) as well as a bunch of other street artists - definitely gets me excited to visit Melbourne.


Then there was this super sweet totoro banner, I think I'm going to buy some wooden dowels to hang it up, I already have a snow cone banner I bought in Japan and I think the two will look really sweet together :)


Can I just say that everything was incredible sweet and of course I had the biggest smile on my face opening it all up!

I'm such a fan of Emily's blog too, it definitely comes with a Fee two thumbs up recommendation -
take a peek here.
