If you love rust, trashpo, tin, and old signs, mail art couldn't get much better than this. Here is what it looked like straight out of its packaging, before the window provided the sun's backlighting:…

Heidelberg Owlsters (Owlstars!) from Svenja Wahl

After sending a kind of strange abstract piece to Svenja which ended up looking like a square owl, I received this from her: All decked out in their babywear. Wow! Am I in love! Aren't you? Hilarious. I have many Svenja favorites, and this ranks right up there with them. It sorely tempts one to continue to send oddball not-meant-to-be-animal mail art to her.

She also…

Stephanie Blake is generous ...

... and NBS is greedy. I ended up 3 trashpo buttons I wished for, figuring only 2 would arrive, but no:  Stephanie kept track of people's wishes and she sent all 3. They're fabulous. Thank you very much Stephanie, Claire, and Diane!…

Fat Steve the "Sleve" says Do it!!!

I have added to the coffee sleeve as instructed by Dkult's resident bad ass gangster Fat Steve "The Sleve" (no one knows the true origin of his name and no one dares ask)--how could I not with a bomb pointing at me? The problem I now have, is that Nadine did not tell me what to do with this Charbucks…
