Artist in Seine.Paris

A wayward piece of art arrived after a long journey. In Seine mailed this piece July 23, 2014 to the USA. Coincidentally another piece coming to the USA got attached somehow and both pieces ended up on the far East Coast....after being rerouted, I now have in my possession "1000 Ribbons and Champagne" which arrived October 27, 2014. The original mailing was shipped "bare", so am amazed that it got to the USA. The rerouted package was carefully wrapped so no further mishaps could delay it…

Colorful greetings from Petrolpetal

While we have here rain, snow and cold weather, I needed a bit of sunshine and that is what landed in my mailbox! Thank you Petrolpetal for  your beautiful card. I love it. Nice detail was that the stamp was a little loose when it arrived and at my touch fell of. I think totally exhausted from the long journey ;-)…
