Mail comes in and mail goes out

My mail arrived in the mail today. No really,  I ordered some miniature vintage mail from Jennifer over at  Looking Glass Miniature and am thrilled that it has arrived. It must have taken forever to prepare and assemble these items. Look carefully as there are even some letters in the envelops. I am so glad to have ordered these.
Today is also the day I finally got some mail out. Along with Jayne and Eva's wins from the draw out went eight swaps to a bunch of gals in our yearly swap. This group of swappers is from one of my Yahoo groups. In case you are wondering what a yearly swap is; each person signs up for a month within the year that they will send out swaps to every other person signed up. My month for this swap was August and the other months I recieve a miniature in the mail from one of them. Been swapping this way for years, it really is fun. In October I have to send out 1:48 items for a different swap, yikes. These are 1:12th scalea and on their way!

Isn't Jenn's mail the best ever?! I have a batch similar to this and I just love it. I am also eagerly awaiting a batch of her 18th century mail. The detailing on this stuff is amazing.
