Outgoing in Autumn

It’s officially the last few days of Autumn with Winter taking over on the seasonal reigns on December 21st.

I sure love my snail mail but admit I have scaled things down a little thisย autumn, partly because of new weekly rhythms andย partly because I’ve intentionally scaled back on my Postcrossingย so as to save some time, energy and pennies for other things.

So rather than post my outgoing mail shots on a monthly basis, I think I’ll share these with you more seasonally.

Here are my stats from my outgoing mail during autumn:ย I have sent 47 postcards, 3 letters, 14 cards and 1 parcel to a total of 21 countries.

*(Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Finland, Germany, Japan, Latvia, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Taiwan, Ukraine, U.S.A.)

Here are some of the shots:
