Day 57


I have a new pen pal in Canada.  Today, I received a gift from her.  Two pairs of earrings and two storage tins decorated with some of my favorite art.  She made it all herself.  Aren't they lovely?  One of the tins and one pair of the earrings is destined for a new home.  It would go perfectly with a gift I am putting together.

I love those tins!! How did you get a pen pal?

Aren't they gorgeous? They have felt lining on the inside to protect your things (jewelry, etc). I saw an thread on another forum that I go to on rare occasions. The woman wanted to communicate with someone, preferably a woman, so that she could experience a different outlook and culture. She is incredibly sweet! And old fashioned letters are so great to get in the mail!

We did that briefly on UKY a couple of years ago, but I think it sort of fizzled out. I love getting "real" letters, too! Maybe we should try and revive the UKY pen pal program!
