Received letters, weeks 28-34/2016

Huh, I can't really understand where these weeks (!) went... My mailbox has been extremely happy with lots of happy letter mail - and hopefully there will soon be other mailboxes around the world that may experience the same happiness mood, too!

Huh, käsittämätöntä, miten nopeasti viimeiset viikot ovat juosseet ohitse... Postiluukusta on tipahdellut kasoittain ihanaa kirjepostia - toivon suuresti, että piakoin maailmalta löytyy muitakin postiluukkuja ja -laatikoita, jotka pääsevät iloitsemaan saapuvasta postista!

Exotic cards

Great cards!

It would be really, really hard to say which of these I'd like the best!

Olisi tosi vaikea valita vain yhtä lempparia näistä upeuksista!
