A Mailbox Trifecta

This may be a first for me...three, count them, three wonderful pieces of mail in the same day. Well, the same day, if you count part of Thursday and part of Friday as the same day. Anyway, all three are from Bobbie Cade, aka Limner. If you don't read her blogs, you are missing out.

First up is my favorite, this long handwritten letter. Isn't her handwriting lovely. Sigh.

Next, was what see calls Cross Over Art, wherein she repurposed some of her scrapbooking materials to make this personalized card just for me. I feel special.

To complete the trifecta, Bobbie sent me these three gorgeous photo notecards with envelopes. I'm fairly certain these are made with her own photos.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. These seem like such little phrases for mail that makes me so happy. How about you? Any happy mail brightening your days?


  1. Ooooh ! Limner's handwriting is so beautiful ! And the card looks marvelous !! :D :D So are the note cards ! What a bunch of lovely mails !! :)

    I can't believe I didn't get a single letter for this whole week ! :( :( Its raining all day from morning till night and I the postman can't come ! Its raining that heavily !! Too bad ! :( :(

    Well.. I'll have to wait till Monday to see if there's any ! :) :)

  2. Patty,

    Limner really is a sweetheart, eh? I've just begun corresponding with her, and look forward to seeing her handwriting. Thanks for posting her beautiful mail art. Keep up your lovely blogs, letter writers. As Limner says, you do inspire us!


  3. Whoa, Patty! LOL! I look desperate, huh? I think you're an amazing, generous, and kind person. Sorry for overdoing things, but I was so excited and touched by my first mail from you, I had to make something special.

    The lovely cards you sent might never be used. Chances are, they will become keepsakes. And your letter? Can't tell you how many times I've read it. :) You write well. Makes me grin. :D

    Thanks for more than you know.

  4. EMP, I'm surprised and disappointed that your package hasn't made it yet. I hope my embellishments didn't slow things down. LOL

    Thanks, both of you for being kind. My handwriting is pitiful from disuse, laziness, and age. :D I learned how to write from the old school in Texas. I love having the chance to examine and admire penmanship from here in the states, and from around the world.

    You're both great ladies. It's a pleasure getting to know you.

    Let us write on! :D

  5. Right on! :)


  6. AHAAAHHAHH! I'm so happy you came to visit my blog, Patty! Hope you have received a little something in the mail by now. :o) hugs from Mexico, Donna

  7. That handmade card is beautiful! I love that Limner created her own name for her mail art technique, too. Happy Spring!
