I posted about book boxes from Regalong Pambahay the other day. They also sell pretty vintage boxes in the same store and I’ve always wanted one but they’re a bit pricey. When I passed by Regalong Pambahay on Friday, I saw that they were having a sale so clearly, the universe wanted me to buy one. This is what I got:
I think it’s modeled after a lunch box. Here’s another view of it:
I thought the box would be perfect for my postcards, it even has some postcards in its design. I think I started collecting postcards back in high school. I remember being jealous of my friends who got to travel out of the country so I’d ask them to please send postcards if they could. Since I love getting stuff in the mail (except for bills), I was thrilled when I started getting postcards from book blogger friends. Some of them are on the top of this pile:
A postcard from Harry Potter World from Capillya (That Cover Girl), one from China from Steph (Steph Su Reads), a card from another Steph (My Girl Friday) from Australia, and one from Madrid from Tina (One More Page). Thanks girls! I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this hilarious card that a friend sent back in 2008:
And some of the stamps that I love:
Anyway, I bought a bunch of postcards last week so I’m planning to send another batch to book blogger friends soon. If you’re interested in getting one, please leave a comment and let me know. First five to comment will receive a postcard all the way from the Philippines! 😛 Also, is anyone from the UK willing to send me a postcard using these adorable Roald Dahl stamps? Sigh, I really want those stamps.
