Monday Mail

I took a weekend long break from my blog to basically just relax.

I saw many dear friends, some who came to town for the holidays, some who are already here. We had a great dinner on Friday night at le Quartier Général. It's a BYOW* place I've heard great things of, but haven't managed to get a reservation until now. I had a phenomenal duck tartare! If you're looking for a great bistro style restaurant, I'm highly recommending le Quartier Général!

I sent a few things in the mail last week. The biggest effort was, hands down, the Easter mail. This week my plan is to catch up with my regular correspondence.


Pastels galore! They went out in all different colors and with different contents. Above are just a few examples.

Mail Love - Outgoing

I also sent out a package in pink-ish hues. Some flowsies and some uber-cute tape I found from NYC. I've been hogging it until now for some reason... Of course some vinyl letters and washi tape too. Just to make sure it won't be subdued or anything silly like that...


Mail Love - Incoming
I got a few Easter cards myself.

How was your weekend?

* Not sure if I've mentioned this, but I know at least my European readers might not be familiar with the concept. BYOW = bring your own wine. It means exactly that. You bring your own wine to the restaurant. Which, I have to say, is a really awesome concept.

    1. Thank you! I was certainly already thinking of spring.

  2. Sounds like a nice weekend, and you also did some nice mail. Love the incoming card with the flowers on.
    I had a nice weekend also. Had a sleepover at one of my best friends and finished up some mail to be sent out tomorrow :)

    1. I really liked that card as well. It was from my grandma.

      Sounds like you had a lovely weekend as well!

  3. Love the package you sent out! Very decorative especially with the washi tape. I also love the see-through glassine(?) envelopes! :)

    1. Thank you Yasmeen! I'm so happy I found the small glassine envelopes. I've been using them a lot already. I think they might have originally been intended for stamp collecting.
