I have a "thing" for postcards. And cards. And pens. And notebooks.
Over the last year or two I have amassed a small mountain of postcards, cards and envelopes. When I buy them my intention is always to send them. But some how it just never seems to happen, and the collection just grows and grows.
I have postcards leftover from last year's trips to Canada, London and Stratford. I have a heap of postcards depicticting works of art I vaguely remember seeing (or didn't see at all - I just liked the card). I keep envelopes that don't fit any card, for letters that I never get around to sending.
Recently my love joked about the clutter in the flat and remarked, "you never throw anything away." Well, today I started a little clearout to attempt to address this problem. Let me be clear: I actually have no problem getting rid of things away. It's the cleaning part I hate.
So with my address book at the ready, I hereby vow not to allow myself to buy any postcards or cards until all of the below have been sent away. I have however far more cards than I have addresses. So please join me in my joyful purge by emailing me your address along with a note of what kind of card you would like to receive. Those desiring a random envelope shall receive a letter. Let it be known that I also have plenty of airmail stickers (I seem to collect those too...oops).
Our starting tally:
Postcards from Scotland: 18
Postcards from England: 18
Postcards of random paintings & photography:20
Postcards of Haida art and scenes from the Westcoast of Canada: 12
Cartoon postcards: 3
Scotland CD Rom Postcard: 1
Birthday Cards: 2
Cards depicting scenes of folk laughing: 8
Random envelopes: 4
Grand Total: 85
I have created a wee box over on the sidebar thing ---> to help me to count down and remove sections as I complete them. Perhaps I will celebrate at the end by doing something I used to love to do - sending one person a parcel of random small treats.
A Day Out.
