Make my day

Hello everybody,
You guys probably all know the make my day blog, right? If you don't, you should go and check it out! Anyways, what I wanted to show you is this awesame little package I got in the mail yesterday! Last week, I won something :) yay! 
Make my day!
Here's what I won: four selfmade cards to make my day (and the day of someone else who will receive them... actually, I already sent the pinkish one.)
The cards came with the little tags to make cards and with a lovely little note. THANKS :)

I also got this postcard yesterday. It was part of the ad-card-tag I participated in on the postcrossing forum and shows a "jungle" in Potsdam (close to Berlin)

I also got this short letter from Michelle yesterday. Michelle is collecting quotes from around the world and asked me to send her one. 
 So, I sent her one :) The envelope is actually very plain, I know, but I was in a big big hurry. BUT can you see the typing? YES! One of my grannies got me a typewriter! It arrived today and I love it. It reminds me of the old times when I was over at her home for the holidays and would be typing and typing and typing there with my cousins :) She told me my younger cousins (we are five "grown ups" and three "kids") don't like her typewriter that much like we did :( Anyways, now I have my own one! (Those little dots you see there are not dirt but glitter by the way :) )

 I also sent this letter to a potential new pen pal. It's a girl from postcrossing whom I sent a postcard and who asked if I'd like to be her pen pal. I decided to not write her an email back but to send her a letter so that it'll be a little surprise for her.
First letter to C.

And I sent out a small package filled with 9 presents to my godmother who will be celebrating her birthday next week. I included one of the cards I won on make my day. I love that the package itself already looks like a present :)

And finally, I got this postcrossing card today. It's from the Czech Republic, from the city of Brno and shows the cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, one of the most famous buildings in the city.

How was your (mail) day? And do you own a typewriter?

Alles Liebe,


  1. I don't have a typewrite, but I would love one! I love the noise they make when you type :) I like the old ones, and I see them fairly often in antique shops, but a lot of them don't work properly. Plus I don't know if I could find the ink ribbon for them. That's really cool that you got one!

    1. Yes, I am really happy :) I don't know how old this one is, but I don't think that it's antique yet :) At least, it works! I know that my granny has gotten hers for her later education - so that would be a bit more than fifty years ago. The one I got now is a "gabriele 10", and I know that the gabrieles have been built between 1965 and 1979 - so it's maybe 40 years old.
      You got me worried about those ink ribbons at first - but I found out that they are still sold :)
      I like the sound, too.

  2. I'm so happy you got it and liked everything :), thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks again for giving me the cards :) Yes, I do like them very much!


Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
