Our Beautiful World

a word prompt from our friend Kirsty
At our house we get all sorts of mail, too much junk mail though

 Sadly this is our present letterbox...on a lean and all - actually we're renting and the box that was there was bent and the lid didn't close so we bought the cheapest one a the hardware shop so our mail wouldn't get wet in the rain. But it still delivers the mail 5 days a week and I'm always eager to see what the mailman has dropped off for's some of what I might find......
My special stamping buddy Vikki and I make and send each other a card every month 
 I cut of the stamps as my mum collects them to be recycled through Sammy Stamps run by the Uniting Church, Australia
My mum and I exchange letters each month even though we talk sometimes on the phone.
 OOWWW a package of goodies ordered on-line
 I play along with a card swap and this is my card from Loly, USA for the month of May swap
Very welcome overseas mail
 Redirected Mail
 Catalogues and junk mail 
The dreaded window envelopes - usually contain bills
Now I'd like to share with you a scan of a postcard sent to my husbands grandfather, 
29 July 1957 Mr F King from his daughter Winnie

Quite often soldiers sent postcard photos of themselves to their family and I do have some but at present can't seen to find them...they mostly don't say too much but the mail was and still is a wonderful way to keep it touch.
Our team has some great photos so please drop by and check them out
