spt - neither rain nor snow nor heat...


...nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

fun holiday spt this week!!

i was just cruising through my sidebar (hi, everyone!) and found this fun post on michelle m.'s blog. she's created a beautiful way to display her holiday cards this year.

i just got my first holiday card yesterday, and i'm hopeful that there are many, many more to come! annual cards are a great way to catch up with family and friends, old college roommates, former employers, the dogsitter, etc. many cards are accompanied by photos and letters, and they all serve to prompt us to remember those we love, near and far.

i love to see how people display the cards they receive each year. some tuck them into a basket, to be savored over a cup of cocoa or tea in the evening; some line a doorway with their cards, creating a holiday decoration of their own. some display their cards on ribbons, some on a tree.

how do you display the cards you receive??

how about we throw in a Random Act of Kindness, too? will you leave a treat for your postal carrier this week? or the kind folks who work the counter at your local post office? spread the good cheer to those who will be working extra hard over the next few weeks!

good idea to take something to the post office. we have a pretty friendly bunch there.

I've actually never thought to leave something for the mailman. What a good idea. I've been a bit of an SPT slacker. I'll try to get back on the bandwagon. THanks for doing it!

I always leave a treat for the mail man but never thought about taking treats to the post office, I'm sure those people could use the boost wooo! I love to cover the front door (on the inside) with all of our christmas cards and pictures. I bought a cute wire tree thing, but I have found covering the door makes me feel so LOVED! Last year, we had to start sticking them to walls, it was so great. Talk about GOOD MAIL! Love you blog Lelly!

Oh I have something terrible to confess about Christmas cards, Lelly. You will shake your head at me.

Now, I'll really have to think how to tackle this SPT, as we've only got one Christmas card in the house addressed to Erin, from a classmate - so it's one of those titchy, titchy mini-cards.

*waves magnifying glass over Erin's card*
