If you are not already familiar with a lovely lady named Rhiannon, you aren't very lucky! She first sent me a letter after finding my blog. It was a surprise and I am happy to still be receiving nice letters from her. She always includes something in her letters, a book, music or movie recommendation. Currently I am obsessed with Gabriel Bruce thanks to her! If you listen to the song Perfect Weather and don't fall in love, I'm don't think we can be friends.
I think this little birdie guy has to be one of my favorite postage stamps. I'm not sure if it is the mischievous look in his eye, how small it is or if it is just the colors.
After seeing The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie, I received this envelope in the mail. The photo Rhiannon pasted on the envelope is fantastic. Every time I look at it, I am filled with memories of being a teenager. The Perks was one of my favorite books in high school, my copy was read by all of my friends and we highlighted out favorite parts. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out they were turning it into a movie and my favorite actor, Ezra Miller, was going to be in it? Lovely. I didn't expect to be so emotional while watching the movie but it just brought me back to a Very Good Time in my life.
I hope she doesn't mind me exposing parts of her letter but it really is just too good to not post! I especially love all of the little doodles on her stationery. I also love a good list. Music, movies, books, feelings, thoughts, whatever.
Rhiannon sent me a Las Vegas themed envelope unintentionally. She made this out of wallpaper. I'm not sure who would want to wallpaper their house in Vegas casinos but... more power to them? The bottom right features my place of employment for 5 years, the Bellagio. Rhiannon seems to enjoy sending me envelopes that make me nostalgic.
The moral of the story is Rhiannon is amazing and sends me amazing things. Also, listen to Gabriel Bruce. His voice makes me want to cry.
