Danish Country Romantic Style

I saw a beautiful article in the newspaper about a Finnish person, who loves Danish country romantic style (which also I like a lot!) and has furnished her house according to it. I liked the pictures and used them to make a card and envelope to PostMuse.
I sewed small pieces of lace on the envelope; it will be nice to get to know if they still existed when she got this!

Front side of the card has just one picture

and back side several pictures (the text says "in different shades of white").

Magic Drum

I sent this big size card to Hsin-Yi, and she just informed she had got it and liked it! Nice!
This is a picture of an artwork by Merja Aletta Ranttila, who lives in Lapland, Finland. The name of the artwork "Noitarumpu" means magic drum, a rite item of a wise man in Finnish Lapland.

Correspondence with Ivana

Ivana sent me this card of the painting "Columbine" by Leonardo da Vinci.

Czech postages are beautiful!

Inside this envelope I had earlier sent her a couple of cards of paintings by Helene Schjerfbeck, who is my favorite Finnish painter. The biggest postage is of one of her paintings.

Swap-bot Letter to Australia

I made this envelope for the swap "Mail me a decorated envie #3".
I used a children book which I had bought from the flea market, and used my new Fiskars "Stamp" scissors to cut decorations to be glued on the envelope.
I earlier posted about new vegetable stamps which can be customized with eye and mouth stickers, and I mentioned, that I don't at all like the stickers. Now I totally changed my mind when I saw how well the customized stamp suits to this envelope!

Part of the story is visible inside the envelope:
