In My Mailbox (14)


In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren & inspired by Pop Culture Junkie

So, I was bad last weekend and didn’t do this post. Here’s what was in my mailbox for the last two weeks. Some of this is also what I got for my birthday! :) I also got a lot of my great aunt’s antiques that didn’t get sold at our yard sale, but they’re mostly packed away already. I feel like I’m forgetting something, so if I did, I’m really sorry!
