Kathy Barnett's Circus Man

The circus is back in town with this wonderful bit of whimsey from Kathy Barnett. The Man is big, about a foot tall, and his legs and arms move! He's going to live on the fridge for a while, next to the two-headed skeleton she sent earlier. The tent envelope is quite nice, too!…

MomKat's Banana Mail Lands in Eugene

MomKat's banana mail arrived right on time (early, actually, but I waited). My favorite part is the Banana Phone stamp! Now THAT'S absurd. (although my father gave me a telephone in the shape of a duck once). If I still had it I'd send it to one of you!…

Finnbadger's Banana-Mail

I finally found out what these Minions are all about (thank god for Wikipedia) and now I'm going to watch the movie! Finnbadger sent me a paper towel with Stuart, Kevin, and half of Bob. I LOVE it! Even though it's a "Bounty" paper towel, it's never going to be a "quick picker-upper" in my house!

Very nice BananananananananaBatman envelope with matching stamp, too! …

Helle Pollas beauty

I think this is my first piece by Helle, and I hope it won't be my last! I really love it. I hate to keep harping on "layers" but I guess that technique must be a favorite of mine because this just blows me away. So much to look at in this small piece. So colorful! There are representational "things" to rest your eye on, such as the bird, and then all the lovely chaos! Thanks Helle. Also I like the sort of 'poofiness' of the object. I don't know if the canvas came that way or if Helle…

Stripygoose's Banana Bird is so wonderful--what can you say other than it makes me smile! And the envelope has some very nice subtle banana work as well. Thanks Stripy!…

Terry Owenby's Altered PC

I just love the layered abstractions in this PC. It makes you peer into it as if you could see what was beneath the alterations, and then draw your focus back to what Terry's done because it's so cool! Thanks Terry, fellow Oregonian!

Linda French: A browing Banana

No I didn't give up hope.  My French Browing Banana arrived today.  This is a brilliant idea.  Sure I saw them yesterday on the banana group blog, but here it is, I have it in my hot little hands while grinning to myself.  "Ha Ha" I laugh. The dog hides under the chair. …

Marie Wintzer: person born before another

Hot from the mailbox.  What a honorific teacher that Marie is.  She reminds me of Sister Marie   Sauerkraut my 3rd grade school teacher.  (Yes that was her name, I think she came from Germany after the war.)  Darn, I forgot where I was going with this.

Thank you…
