Orange lovers

When I was preparing this mail to send to two Orange lovers, I found out that there still is no IUOMA-group for Orange lovers.

So here it is! If Orange is your favourite colour, and if you want to share Orange mail with the world: join!

(by the way, my favourite colour is Turquoise...)

Superb orange package arrived in Petsmo - from Heleen. Thank you! Will soon send something in return, Heleen.

And Richard Baudet surprised again with a beautiful collage envelope:

With a lot of orange (and music!) in the postage stamp, too, and the beautiful calligraphy on the back.

Thank you very much, merci beaucoup, Richard!

More Orange, thanks to Vizma!

In an envelope (a blue one, yay!) with promising content: 2 packages, too beautiful to open:

WIth orange (and bunnies) on the envelope:

And my name in bronze orange, above one of my favourite Australian animals (you can see him/her here, in a video which shows the usually yellow-beige spines as orange :-)  and next to great stamps:

Thank you very much, Vizma!

Received from Eva:

This lion suits well in my Real Weird Animals mail art project (and I'll publish it there, too, but please have patience, because I'm still behind in posting, too...).
But of course this many orange belongs here, too :-)


By the way, the lion is a character from the Wizard of Oz, and Eva has an interesting mail art project on Oz.

Thank you very much, Eva! (but how dare you write I'm an Orange lover; I may be founder of this group, but deep, deep inside I'm a turquoise lover  :-)

Thank you, Zois, Anu and Angie, for your messages! I am happy to read that at least these three mailings arrived well! And nice to know that the orange form, which usually is green, was accepted, too :-)

Many Thanks for Heleen for a great orange surprise package!!!!  So many wonderful orange things!

Heleen, thank you.  Wow, what a package celebrating ORANGE arrived today, Saturday.  Very inventive letter/note page with the members in the upper right. Excellent example of mail art, this picture barely shows half of it.

Congrats to the ORANGE Dutch :-)

Vizma, I wished I had send you the chocolate eggs now instead of last summer... (and I should knit gloves for you, so to read...)

New orange mail: my entry for the 'Strange Mail Contest'! (well, it appears not that strange: the receiver replied to my entry form that there already had been sent a green one :-)

So nice to see warm orange.. when I finish hibernating and my hands stop trembling, I'll post some pics here! (We just had our coldest day in 9 years!!)
