Ramblings for January 17th...wait, it's almost February?

It's hard to believe that February will be here in a short time! Where have the days, weeks, months, and years gone? It seems that just yesterday I was crazy busy at work because it was the holiday season. Of 2007!  I've worked for my current employer a bit over five years and some days it doesn't feel as though it's been that long. Other days it seems as though it's been much longer but I suppose that's true with most jobs. It's just hard to believe we're almost into the second month of 2013.

I'm off work today and have a few errands to run. One is to the post office. Squeeee, one of my favorite places to go! I have several outgoing letters but a couple of them seem a tad heavy to me so I want to ensure they have adequate postage. I think I need a postage scale. Do you have one? If so, what kind? The last one I had was a commercial model and that's overkill for my current situation but I'd like to find one that's fairly durable and accurate.

Moving on...while poking around on Pinterest last night these ready to fold letters caught my eye. Aren't they sweet?

I also found this very neat postal tattoo. I have no tattoos but appreciate the postal charm of this one.

I can't find a single postcard in my town. Nay, not one. I ordered a few from Missive Maven's Etsy shop but definitely need more.  I'm going to hit the thrift shops and watch for garage sales that might have miscellaneous stationery, envelopes, postcards, and ephemera. By the way, did you know there's a society for ephemera fans? I didn't know that but have spent some time this morning going over their site. There's a lot of neat stuff there and looking at all the goodies strengthens my already intense desire for paper tid bits. I think I need to limit my time on that site!

Happy Friday, errr, Thursday, and may your mailbox be full of wonder!

And here, have a picture of my cat, Sammy. Isn't he a love?
