I received from corduroy cat today.
I'm going to tell you a story, okay?
See that giant mailbox over there?
Way across the road with it's door open? Well, that is my neighbor's mailbox. Mine is the tiny one behind it. My neighbor's mailbox is broken and won't stay closed.
Today I went to check the mail. After being home with Mr. Malmow ALL DAY. And while I was standing at my mailbox, I happened to look in 344's mailbox, since it was open. And I saw my package in it!
So I grabbed it right out and huffed across the street and declared to Mr. Malmow that I have HAD IT with the USPS and I will be lodging a complaint against my lazy mailman.
Anyway, THANK GOODNESS I saw it b/c 344 might not have known which house was mine and the package wouldn't fit in my mailbox and maybe they would have just stolen it.
I'm glad they didn't, because it was full of awesome stuff!
Satchmo was wary.
There are TONS of papers, a bunch of tags (I love tags) mints in an awesome tin, rub ons, beads, buttons, museum brochures, maps, giraffes, envelopes with angler fish on them!
Some of my favorites:
Cigarette cards, apothecary type labels, and the gold eyeball things. Are they supposed to backwards? Are they rubons?
Loteria cards (which I am unfamiliar with, but are really neat), a hilarious holographic Barbie card, and an amusing fortune cookie fortune.
I can't even begin to thank you, corduroy cat!
Just as I can't even begin to post all of the amazing things she sent me. One last image: some of the awesome vintage stamps she talked about.
As always, I apologize for the shoddy photography, and for sending my partner a package that isn't nearly as awesome as this one!
