My friend the mail fairy

Mail Fairy, I hope you understand how special you are. I am always happy to see you. My heart flutters at the thought of your arrival.

Mail Fairy, I love the wonderful things you bring me - things like this marvellous prize here, which I won on The Fabric Shopper blog. Rosie at the Fabric Shopper has a daily email I subscribe to, which arrives around 6am Melbourne time and showcases different fabric finds every day, not to mention wonderful giveaways and competitions.

Isn't it fantastic? I don't win things very often, so it's quite exciting to receive an unexpected surprise like this. I intend to give it a go at some point in the next few weeks .... perhaps after my crowded clutch of end-of-November markets are over.

Mail Fairy, I confess I do sometimes load the dice by ordering lovely things online so that you have a reason to make a visit. Things like fabric (of course) and lately, some Christmas presents via Etsy and other excellent sites. Did you know that Barnes and Noble in the US ship things to Australia for a flat rate of $10? With the exchange rate as good as it currently is, you could pick up quite a few recent seasons of Project Runway on dvd for less than half what they would cost in Australia - if anywhere in Australia stocked them, of course. Project Runway on dvd! I have a plan in mind.

It's true to say, Mail Fairy, that you rarely disappoint me. It's part of the reason I like you so much. Admittedly, I am not very fond of your distant cousin, the Bringer of Bills, but I don't let that get in the way of our friendship.

Mail Fairy, please come back to visit me soon.

The mail fairy has been good to me too this week (thanks to lots on online shopping) but that's OK - it makes me happy! Love this post (and the concept of a evil cousin to the Mail Fairy - The Bringer of Bills)!

Don't wave Project Runway under my nose like that, I've just come back from an expensive holiday! Unfair!

$10? That's brilliant! I see much more PR in my future!

Speaking of mail, I have some teatowels I need to send you for your aprons but it's been so long, do you still need them? (I'm slack, I know!)
