Returned


I sent this letter to Oman before Christmas, and it was returned ten weeks later... from  the United Arab Emirates (?). So I put it in an bigger envelope and sent it again. And I hope this time it will reach the receptor's mail box safe and sound!

St. John the Evangelist in Waterloo Road



Two postcards sent by Laura (the UK). 
They show the Paris Church of St. John the Evangelist in Waterloo Road (London), built in 1824. I like the fact that they are two views (inside and outside) of the same building.

I know it seems not being the right postcard since the spring is coming. But I assure you it was the right postcard two weeks ago. Especially because it was the answer for this one:

Handmade Labels

I participated last month in the first giveaway organised by Bree in her blog Say It Like You Eat It. And, as you know, I'm a very lucky person, and I won it!

The prize was a set of beautiful handmade bookmarks made by Bree. You can also use it as gift tags. I received them, and I must say that they look more brilliant "live...!

De laatste liefdesbrief

De laatste liefdesbrief (The Last Letter From Your Lover), by Jojo Moyes, is not only a book about letters... but it can also be sent by mail. At least, its first pages. I have got it from my friend Heleen (the Netherlands).



Inside you can read some letters. I mean: you can if you can read in Dutch (a little problem, you see...).

Why Are You Sending Me Postcards?

 

Why are you sending me postcards?
Lyrics and music: Claes Eriksson

Why are you sending me postcards,
when you don't love me no more?
I have no interest in postcards.
What are you sending them for?

I have no interest in places,
places that you like to see.
Beaches and cities and faces,
why do you mail them to me?

Why are you sending me postcards?
What do you want me to see?
Or do you think all these postcards
proves that you're happy and free?

Or do you think I collect them,
thousands of postcards from you?
Yes, you must think I collect them,
but that is not what I do...

I give them to Morgan, my dog, every night.
He eats them and thinks that they taste quite alright.
He looks at me afterwards, thinking so sweet:
Why is she sending me postcards to eat?

I don't know, little Morgan, I don't know, I reply.
I don't know why she sends them, no I don't know why.
Then I tell him that maybe already next day,
he's going to have a little piece of Bombay.
