Despite strikes and very strange post men...i actually received some post this week...:) After reaching Israel and meeting the strange post men this parcel once decided to go back to England...but not this time...

Sweet Kellys box of presents arrived safely - i just knew that her handmade work would be beautiful - pictures do not do them justice. In the box were some chocolate eggs for my girls, magazine cuttings, a collection of songs that suit me down to the ground, some stamps (love used stamps!!) a gorgeous bookmark and a beautiful soft bag...

...a home for this stunning pear - such a treasured piece made by Kellys talented grandfather - such a touching gesture - thank you so much Kelly!!!

And a fantastic zine and lovely stamps from Louise and Gracia - thanks so much - it will come in very handy!!! and so will the stamps :)

    Lovely parcels, Julie!

    So there's a mean postman in Israel as well?
    I had a similar experience in the Netherlands... :-(
