My First Informed Delivery


Ta-da! Here it is! My very first informed delivery scan. We're allowed the first ten pieces of mail to be shown at this size. That's not bad. Do you think we should pay extra for the service? Would you pay or should it remain business as usual?


Isn't it lovely, made for mail! All hail, Stevie Wonder!


Such wonders abide within. Oh, my gosh! A feldlerch is a skylark! 


I am giddy with delight! A quick Google and look what I've learned! Skylark, yellowhammer, house sparrow, common reed bunting . . . Little birds I have seen, I see again, in a different tongue. Not that I see with my tongue, but thank you, Anke. 





Pages from someone's practice book? I like the hand. It's enviable, yes?



I am not the only Flow-er. It is indeed "Happy time!" 





Not so fast! There's more. Peacock feathers galore! Simply irresistible. A notecard from Catherine. Thank you, it's mesmerizing. Your note is lovely too. 


I forgot to thank Cynthia for the fan that blew such sweet memories back in my face. Thank you, Cynthia. Thanks for the stamps too. They're my first, so please know that they mean a lot. That reddish color reminds me of the red dirt in Alabama and southeast Texas. More memories trying to shove their way to the forefront! Goodness, what a feeling!


More for the out-bag.


I have a feeling this short stack will be with us until Monday. Surely it will have grown taller, wider, brighter by then? I can only hope. How many letters can you write in a weekend? Turned any paper bags lately? *wink* I'm waiting. *grin*

P.S.  May we mail painted rocks???

    1. The handwriting gave me the push I needed to take up practice again--in earnest. The ink is just as lovely, don't you think? It reminds me of the ink you use. Your ink signature! We should all have one. Mine would be red. :D

  2. The informed delivery is interesting, thank you for sharing. Not available here in Canada, I would like it for when I travel.

    1. You're welcome. It has its perks. I worried about privacy at first, but what's to worry about if you have nothing to hide, right? What if you order surprise gifts by mail?

      It cuts down on needless visits to the post office. There's less disappointment and being able to check your mail when you're away is a good thing. I hope Canada adopts the idea soon.

  3. oh really I did not picture you as a red ink girl for some reason green comes to mind and I'm so glad you like the peacock card . I love cards that shimmer like that . I also love peacock feathers I have a few in my house . I m hoping you will be happy when I show you what my rocks look like when finished I just started the painting this morning . I think if you pack it tight enough and the rock is significantly small then maybe just maybe we could pass them by the snoops at the usps LOL . kudos to you dear and be well and stay well .

    1. Girl, Chinese lacquer red all the way, on good days. :) Then soot black, walnut, and funky deep blue.

      That peacock card loves light. It shimmers so well it almost shimmies.

      I like your strawberry rocks. Did they take long to dry? Do you add varnish?

      The snoops! I like that. You paint on!

  5. I've had informed delivery for a while now and you will find it doesn't inform you about a lot of deliveries -- they say they scan "letter size" mail and I have gotten a lot of mail art pieces that weren't scanned -- and they always scan the bills and junk mail -- but not the good stuff.....

    1. Thanks for the 411. I'm late coming to the party because I'd planned to let my post office box go. JC convinced me to try it since we didn't sign on for our home mail.

      I read that the USPS scans every piece of mail anyway. Is there a limit? I hope you get more of the good stuff than not. :)
