Not a problem, Amy L. Tabler-Yingling. I thought it was funny.

Sorry A.Sleep about the extra postage I am glad you didn't get charged, I did take it to the post office and they told me one stamp was enough next time I have an odd shaped one I might just put an xtra stamp or two on it just to be safe

xIncoming from Amy Yingling, titled "Pierced Meringue", post-marked Feb. 19th, 2015. Odd-shaped postcard. Came with a red "Postage Due" stamp with no amount filed in. I suspect that measuring an egg shaped postcard was a pain in the butt, and someone gave up.

Loving all the great posts in this group! Just wanted to share the odd shaped pieces I've recently created from 6-pack carriers. There was a total of eight.

Tiny wooden figures, three of them with some things attached.
I am curious to know if they'll arrive at all!..

I'll put them in the letterbox tomorrow (a birdhouse and bird to Mary, a bird and butterfly to Val, and the remaing three to Ripley), and will keep my fingers crossed that they won't get lost in the post :-).

The orange hand made it from the Netherlands to Florida! And is published on Ripley's website, together with even weirder mailed objects :-)

As a 'thank you' I received a book of Ripley, and also an other book - alas posted in a normal envelope, but with kind messages.

And today I posted a second object for the strange mail contest: a book. Well, that seems usual (apart from the fact that I posted it without envelope or any other cover). However the book is about mail, and I wrote about it here in IUOMA in an other group: it's about an Englishman who posted the most weird objects. Among them onions and: himself. And his bike :-) Over 110 years ago!

Great package which survived traveling via mail from Australia to the Netherlands:

And inside a cheerful and colourful content:

It was part of a 'Random objects' swap at the LEP.
Meanwhile I had send a teaspoon, packed in a small (so to the mail companies: odd shaped) package:

I am not sure whether it has arrived or not (and if not, if it will arrive at all - so I sent an other random object, this time packed in a normal shaped postal package, so not shown here :-) ).

Sent my first odd mail for the contest! I hope it will arrive well. However  it not really is strange mail: when I submitted the entry form, the receiver replied that he liked it and that he already had received a green one! :-)
