Comment: You actually get 2000 hearts for this swap, I love it!!! The lacy headstone is perfection. I love the eentsy spider you drew, too. And this is a great postcard. SO cool you love Joanna Newsom, too. I've seen her a few times and she's always so wonderful. My favorite is also Have One on Me. I know ppl who didn't like it and I think they're nuts. The Zelazny book sounds amazing! I love antiheroes. We just went to see Maleficent 2. I love her backstory. It's so awesome. THANKS! :):):) Happy Halloween!

Thanks for the envelopes! I love them. Thanks for the letter too! I don't know that many other people who are big fans of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell... odd, because it's in every library! It's actually the book that got me to start reading Jane Austen after I read an interview with the author where she said that Emma was her favorite book! From the same interview, I also ended up reading An Instance of the Fingerpost by Iain Pears-- I recommend it if you haven't read it already! Thanks again-- I love getting letters.
