Ice cream valentine

Ice cream valentine blog reader letter

This February blog reader letter included some great paper and mail art, a lovely little letter, and even a handmade valentine!

The silver feather card really captured my fancy, and she also included a handmade Edward Gorey bookmark. The smaller envelope sealed by the rose sticker is the valentine.

  1. I adore the ice cream van, especially as it's depicted in winter. I love ice cream and I also love that it's considered normal to eat it in winter in Italy. I'm going to get so fat there, hehe

  3. Zoe, I was wondering whether anyone would point that out... I have a sort of strict "post on blog in order of photos taken" rule, so yeah, I am behind. But we knew that, didn't we?

  4. Wow! I didn't realize you had that rule, I just thought you had just come across this and decided to blog about it.

    It's a great valentine!

  5. Haha Zoe read my mind! Maybe I should send you a Halloween-themed letter now so that you get it on time ;) I love the profile on that Valentine--did the sender mention whether it was handmade or purchased? I wonder how hard it is to make a handcut profile. Anyway, good luck, and I hope your workload becomes more manageable!
