Sending fun things in the mail is my fave

I love good old fashioned mail so much that I often can't wait to get to the mailbox even though I know it's going to be a credit card application and a take-out menu. I'm thinking if I start sending surprises to my friends, maybe they'll reciprocate.

I would love to send some homemade party poppers filled with little surprises like dollar bills and chapstick.

Yee-Haw sells these letterpress oversized postcards that only require a stamp.

Or I could be secretive with one of these envelopes that need to be held up to the light in order to see the message.

It doesn't get much cuter than these letters from the world's smallest postal service.

Or I could go a little bigger and make my message poster sized.

And earlier this year I slapped an address label on a pinata and just sent it as is. It didn't even get smashed.

Wouldn't you be thrilled if one of these showed up in your mailbox?


  1. Love the pinata and the party poppers! Fun!!!

  2. Oh, I just love these suggestions! Just brilliant!

  3. oooh, yes please! LOVE your blog! It is so whimsical and fun. Feel free to stop by mine anytime!


  4. yes, I would LOVE to get something like this in the mail.. or in fact I'd love to get anything besides bills and junk mail :) I love receiving packages so much!

    have a lovely weekend! xo

  5. They say you have to get love to give love. I hope you're on the receiving end soon!

  6. I love getting things in the mail as well. I don't miss a day collecting my mail. I'm always hoping for big check. I'm still waiting... I just joined two swaps and I'm excited to send on some goodies.

  7. lol! So wonderful! Love the party poppers, and the world's smallest postal service! The pinata is so awesome!! :)

  8. These are all great and I can't wait to use most if not all of these with my pen-pal. Already we've sent flip flops through the mail without even packaging them! Just write on the bottom, stick some stamps on the top, address and send!
