Blue Blogjam from Superhero, Amy irwin, and Ekaterina!!!

The Blue Trashpo is from Kat and I'm loving how she is including bits of trash stapled on the back for use in making trashpo. I…

Nice to see the mail box "overflowing" on a Monday morning!

Actually, Herr Haptic Erni's envelope was "stuffed" on top :-(

Luckily the contents were safe. My mail box likes small mail art (half A4) .

we keep the mail art small, small enough to stay in the green…

The Ammazulu African Palace in Kloof, which she says is a hotel "crammed with art, colour, texture and eccentricities"--and she sent a little drawing she did while there: 

It is charming, and Les says this is a Zulu beadwork necklace that was hanging on the wall. Her envelope is charming too, so it is included in the photo. (Interesting stamps--"Standard Postage.") Thank…
