What the mail brought

I received lots of Christmas cards, letters and parcels before and during the holidays. I find it a bit out of time to show the Christmas cards now. But I would like to thank all of my friends and pen pals for sending them.
Here are some things the mail brought a bit later in January and February.
At the beginning of January I received this lovely Christmas parcel with gifts and sea glass from dear Juliana in Scotland. Thank you so much sweetie!

 There were gifts for Barca too. The edelweiss soap from Austria smells divinely!
 Amazing sea glass from Scotland.
A lovely gift from dear Marabeth for all the celebrations of the new year!
 I loved the blue and white cross stitch kit.But the most special gift was the signed copy of the book Mermaid Tears by Madelyn Kavanaugh and gorgeously illustrated by Monica Loomis. Thank you so much Marabeth!
I had taken part in a giveaway on Sarah in Stitches blog some time ago and I was very lucky to win it.
Here is what sweet Sarah sent me.
Vintage cross stitch patterns, beads and buttons and a lovely Christmas fabric.
Two amazing pincushions made by Sarah.
 And this lovely pair of earrings. Thank you so much Sarah!
 I also received a letter from Christine in France which I really enjoyed reading with my coffee and sweets.
Another friend from Finland dear Tua sent me some very interesting booklets and cards from her country and this amazing sea glass pendant made by herself!
 Unique!Thank you Tua!
 Finally a little mermaid arrived all the way from snowy Denmark due to the generosity of avid Lego collector Julie of Moments of perfect clarity blog. I really enjoy reading your blog julochka. Your sweet mermaid really loved finding my sea glass and the Greek sun!
