I'm feeling the urge to host a giveaway. I know I don't have many followers, but who cares, you're all important, no matter how small your number and I want to give something back :D

It's also an excuse to spend a little money, and we all know I love doing that.

So, as I said, I'm contemplating it. I'll probably wait until I'm back in London because I have a shitload of goodies sitting there waiting to be doled out and I'm feeling generous!

I'm really missing my stationery stash. I only brought a handful of lettersets (i.e. 2 sheets and 1 envie) with me because I didn't think I'd be writing too much and seriously didn't even take into account the replies I had to write. I almost bought a Hello Kitty letter set in Ste Foy today, but I resisted. At 7 Euros, I didn't think it was worth the money.

However, on Monday I picked up these

A bunch of Lyon postcards.

Awesome Coke ad postcards.

The Lyon postcards are intended for my penpals, I would have bought more to spread the love a little further, but posties are expensive here! I managed to get a decdent deal which worked out to 50c a card, but in London I can get 15 for £1, less than 7p a card!! I guess there just isn't so much demand for touristy postcards here.

The coke ad cards are for my personal stash. Me and the bf have a large collection of vintage ad and movie poster cards, just plain bizarre cards, cards of our favourite modern movie posters and various cards from places we've visited that we will *eventually* combine into a huge collage and put into an appropriate frame. Who knows when we will finally get around to completing our project, maybe only when we have bought a house?? But we will do it... one day ;)

As I'm in Lyon, I don't know if I've had any replies in Italy, but I will ask the lovely bf to bring any mail to Torino this weekend, so I'll be able to get any replies out from Lyon next week.

Thank you for being patient with my constant moving around and the delays it's caused to my correspondence ♥

  2. Helloo m'dear, I did indeed get your letter (It had a cute piggy envelope?) and have sent ya a reply to your Italian address - I'm sorry if I shoulda let you know sooner!
    Hope things are ok at your side of the channel =) Take care xx

  3. woohoo! I'll probably go ahead with one in July Darcy. Then I can pick a saucy array of goodies!

    Nicola, I realised when I was going through comments that you alluded to my letter some time ago. Don't worry about me, I was just overreacting. I hate the thought of a bunch of letters going missing due to my own error is all :)
