I got Mail: Treasures from Across the Sea

Dear voyager sent me a parcel full of wonders and I’m going to share at least the images with you.

various goodies

All the wonderful things in one place, except for the lavender, which was stolen ba my kid.


First of all, chocolate. I’m only going to eat this once my cold has gone completely.


Unicorn magnets. If the kids behave I will share. I’ll probably put some into their advent calendar.


Postcards and a roadmap from voyager’s summer residence. Now I can check where Jack walked.


A bone disk, I think. It says “fill me with resin and make me a pendant.” I think I need to work on an idea here.

beach findings

Sea urchins, snails and a sanddollar. How did voyager know I was working on an underwater landscape?


The wildlife guide is full of leaves from Jack’s walks. I have a pretty good idea as to what to do with them, but I won’t say anything yet. As I expected, #1 was very interested in the wildlife guide as such…

Seaglass and seashell fossils(?) I have an idea here, too…

Not pictured: a little matrioshka keyring that went directly to my keys…

Thanks you so much, voyager. Receiving your lovely gift was better than Christmas.

    Oh, how cool, and how thoughtful! Those pieces of sea glass are so gorgeous, can’t wait to see what you do with them!

    Oh my gosh, that sea glass is just gorgeous! If it was mine, I’d just put it somewhere and stare for a while, but I think in your hands, it will come to far more artistic and productive ends! Have fun with everything, although sometimes I think the most fun is in opening the package in the first place…

    What a lovely parcel of goodies! I too look forward to seeing what you do with the sea glass, shells etc.

    I’m so glad you like everything. I knew you’d have good ideas and I can’t wait to see what you make. I might pirate an idea or two. :D

    Ice Swimmer,
    A bit late, but yep that was us. (If I could e-send one of Jack’s wags I would.)

  6. Ice Swimmer says

    It is a lovely package.

    Thank you. I wanted to make sure it came from you before opening it. It was wonderful. I do enjoy being a student, still, juggling deadlines nonwithstanding. The birthday celebration is coming, after the end-of-semester exams are done, over three weeks late, but it’ll come.
