Pequenas coisas | Little things

A new acquaintance

Outgoing parcel for the giveaway winner

Part of my outgoing letter to Jurandir

Pen nibs Jurandir (@netocaligrafia on IG) sent me

Probably the most beautiful letter I've ever received; note that this is written by hand! 

Newly acquired typewriter: a Hermes Baby from the 1960's

Lisboa, Lisboa

Após 5 (a ir para os 6) anos de viver em Portugal, tive finalmente, finalmente a oportunidade de visitar a capital. A visita foi curta e o tempo não ajudou, mas uma tarde chegou para me fazer querer voltar lá num futuro próximo

After 5, almost 6, years of living in Portugal, I finally had the oportunity to visit the capital of the country, Lisbon. Because of the bad weather, I only managed to walk around for one afternoon, but it was enough for making me want to go back in a near future.

Dias de correio | Good mail days

Este post era suposto ser feito já há algum tempo, mas com o início da faculdade o tempo rapidamente torna-se escasso. Aqui estão algumas imagens de coisas fantásticas que tenho recebido.

This post was meant to be made already some time ago, but as soon classes start again I find myself short on time. I've been receiving some fantastic things in the mail which I really wanted to share with everyone, so here are a few pictures: 

Hand-drawn and lovingly packed, "curious mail" by Corey; still can't get over the fact of how talented she is

Vintage paper ephemera from Trina 

Mail from the amazing Jessica Xu (make sure to check out her blog to see more of her amazing illustrations!)

A tiny letter (with a tiny postcard) from Onessa

And lastly, mail from Margaret who always spoils me with tons of paper ephemera and photographs.

With all the love,
