July Lovely Letters

I don't know about you, but I miss the days of when more people used to send snail mail. Esther of Adventures with Esther and Jacob set up a pen pal program called Lovely Letters, where bloggers get to meet other bloggers. At the start of the month she pairs up bloggers to create a package of little treats and letters. I signed up for the month of July and was paired with Tress of Tress Ritter Photography.

This month's theme was "Ocean Blue", and as you can see from the photo below, I went all out with one of my favorite colors.

What I Sent:
A seashell necklace I made, a set of sticky notes, a letter, a bottle of awesome-smelling shower gel, and a paint chip playlist of some current favorites. If you're curious of my picks, see the photo below. :)

What I Received:
Tress created an awesome package. I love the surprise of having no idea what to expect. She sent me a really really cool letter printed on some parchment-like paper; I felt like I was reading a letter from Downton Abbey or James Bond or something. ;) Along with the letter, she sent a copy of her favorite book, a set of old-fashioned envelopes with really neat stamps, a jar of seasoning (totally can't wait to try it!), and a couple of candies (which I also can't wait to try).

If you want to join in with the Lovely Letters swap, you can sign up here and read all the details.

  1. I love the package you put together for your swap partner! That playlist was super creative.

  2. I loved the idea of creating a playlist (maybe totally stealing that for next time). And I love that she put together something so creative and thoughtful for you!

  3. Thanks! I love discovering new music so I thought it was a fun idea. :)

  4. Feel free! I know, I was so happy to receive her fantastic package. :)


I love comments. Thanks for taking the time to add your thoughts!
