Brighten Up Your Snail Mail

Snail mail is one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world! It makes my day to get something in the mail that was hand written and/or hand addressed and/or in a pretty envelope with a pretty stamp… I just really appreciate snail mail! And I know I’m not alone!

I know I may be late to the party with finding this out, but did y’all know you can order cool postage stamps online? I used to just go through the Kroger line and get a book of stamps (usually flags or bells) or get a book when checking out at the post office (and rarely does the one in Madison have all the cool ones in stock!) Wellย I randomly went on the USPS website one day and found that there are WAY more options thereย that I didn’t even know existed!

Here is a link to all the forever stamps. There are some other really cool ones but they’re postcard stamps or just a few extra cent stamps. I think you’ll be surprised to see all of the options that are there! There’s something for just about every occasion! Some are definitely weird, but most are cool!

My favorites out of the last batch I ordered are the summer fruits and veggies, Jimi Hendrix, these pretty flowers, and the artist Martin Ramirez ones!

By the way, the adorable book that I used as a background in these pictures is called How To Be A Wildflower by Katie Daisy. The illustrations and lettering are just beautiful! I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but based on the cuteness of the pages while just flipping through, it’s gonna be a great book! I bought it for my little flower, Lily Ryan! <3

I hope all of you have a great weekend and a peaceful Mother’s Day! And don’t forget– if you’re looking for a last minute gift idea, this post might have a good option for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

XOXO!
