I swear our friendship has been enhanced by the speedy postal services on both sides. So far, our respective post offices have a proven positive track record in getting our parcels and packages over to each other within a decent window.
This slim envelope was posted out from Sweden last week via normal mail. The postmark indicated 27 January 2011. Today, a mere 4 days later, the envelope, holding precious contents, sat quietly on my desk.
While the envelope was excitedly and carelessly ripped so that I could cluck over its thoughtful and sincere contents, the stamps were not forgotten. I love the details in the stamps, especially the 2 photographed above.
Naturally, the stamps set fire to the imagination. I conjured up 2 bedtime stories, then 1 giant tale to link them both. They're quite hilarious, methinks! Ask me about it in person next time and I'll share it with you. Perhaps I'd read to the little girls and boys too. I promise they aren't snarky or scary tales. I probably spent a good 15 minutes chuckling.
