  1. Hi Jes,

    There is something so personal and unique about the handwritten card or letter, in addition to its method of transport, the 'snail mail' alias, as it is referred to by many today. I know I still get as excited as a child at Christmas, whenever I do happen to spot a coloured envelope in our mailbox, which signifies a greeting card inside. Thanks so much for hosting and hope you have a lovely week!


    1. Thanks for sharing Poppy, I must agree with you :) Thank you also for joining us this week!
