Tiffany in the USA


This penpal ad comes from Georgia, which makes me think of the 3 hour layover I had in Atlanta when I went to see Denise for the second time. That airport is by far the best one I’ve ever seen!


On to Tiffany’s ad…

Tiffany’s email address is


I hope you can read this ad even though the writing looks small… This is what happens when people use larger sheets and I scan them. If you’re sending me a penpal ad, unless your writing is really big, please use smaller sheets! Thanks.


On an unrelated note, I’ll start posting Penpal of the Week interviews again soon. Woohoo!

My new Top 10 Quirks


My life has changed quite a lot recently, so I decided to make a new list of quirks! Here they are.


Top 10 Quirks Julie 1

Top 10 Quirks Julie 2


I asked Denise to make a list of her quirks too, so stay tuned…


In the meantime, why don’t you send me yours along with a penpal ad? I’m always interested in hearing about other people’s quirks.


See how to participate here!

My name is Julie and I'm 37.
I'm French Canadian and fell
in love with an American,
so I'm now living in Vermont
with my wife.

I write letters, I love stationery and I have a handwriting fetish. I often eat sushi, still feel like I'm 16 and only wear skirts & dresses (with colorful tights when it's cold).

I'm happier with a mind full of ideas, a mailbox full of letters from my penpals, a shop full of stationery, a house full of pens and a day full of hugs.

Read my Top 10 Quirks here.

This is me with my wife,
Denise. We met through the
League of Extraordinary
Penpals and are living
happily ever after in the
Stationery Kingdom.

Denise blogs here too and is
the one in charge of the
social media: Facebook,
Twitter and Pinterest.

She's 40 years old,
from South Dakota,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
