Real mail

I just received a fantastic envelope of postal goodness from Marguerite of Piccadilly Post, who is also a member of the Post Post Post Club.  In a little glassine packet, I found a strip of beautiful faux postage, which are based on handmade postcards sent by Marguerite on PostCrossing.  What I love is that each artistamp includes the date & destination of the original postcards, which I think is a lovely touch – alongside the Piccadilly Post ‘real mail’ postmark stamp.  Marguerite’s letter (written in tiny handwriting on lined & embellished luggage tags) explained how ‘real mail’ came to be part & parcel of her life when she went away to college, and she still stays in touch with her mother by real mail now – sweet!  Thank you for such a wonderfully unexpected treat – some real mail will be heading your way soon, in return. 🙂
