Happy Friday, friends! It’s been a very international week in my mailbox–pen pal letters from the UK, Germany, Australia, and Spain have all completed their journey to cold Massachusetts over the past few days.
A certain Miyazakian stationery item pictured above inspired this post’s title, but there are many other treasures to be found in this mail haul, too: gorgeous gemstone stamps, summer memories, Van Gogh, book pages…
I am completely in love with this Studio Ghibli washi tape featured on a letter from England–probably the most amazing stationery creation ever designed! It’s hard to tell which one I love more: how can you choose between Jiji and a witchy postmark or colorful, flower-power totoros? (Extra points for including the mid-sized teal totoro, my personal favorite of the clan.)
My last post showcased all of the many books I’ve been devouring recently–and this letter from Germany coincidentally reflects my love of reading! I adore the veritable library of tape, and the book pages used to decorate the envelope.
The inside of this letter was adorable too (and in my favorite color scheme, as it turns out). Such a beautiful thing to receive in the mail–marinegirlsadventures is treating me well!
It’s rare that I get mail from Oceania, so I was glad to receive this lovely Australian letter this week! Since it’s not exactly winter on the other side of the world (I’m so jealous, Southern Hemisphere!), her mailing was cheerful and summer-sweet.
Finally, a beloved artist/fellow redhead favorite of mine guest-starred in this letter from Spain! This lovely lady always sends me the most interesting tidbits: I already wish I were in the area to check out this cool vegetarian restaurant. I’ll keep it in mind for any future trips to Europe–and, in the meantime, I’m happy to enjoy globe-trotting through the post!
