Asemic beauty from Nancy Bell Scott arrived in Greece

"Knitting Mill" and streams of other places flow across one page of the mail art card with a vintage "Air Mail" US stamp that Nancy sent. Perhaps it is upside-down, what that "Annual Report" reads that way...or not. It is nestled nicely in the olive tree.

Visual poetry? Asemic writings? Letters that dance across another side of Nancy's card..also liking its place in the olive tree.

Avenues and Streets woven into Nancy's beautifully layer collage ...along with a personal greeting.

Top cover...definitely asemic and exciting! Just love it! Thank you so much, Nancy!

(I like the "IUOMA" hand-made stamp , too!)

Isn't it though? Nothing else like it, anywhere. Much better than my floor.

Isn't that olive tree just a perfect art displayer! Nice to see Nancy's work up there, and your pictures Katerina!

& I keep meaning to say, in making the IUOMA stamp (with matboard) I came within 1 sec of doing what Thom did with LIAM TRA. Maybe AMOUI would be easier to say, though. am-wee. Easier to say than IUOMA. Does anyone make that into a word when speaking it?

Lucky you, Katerina, it looks wonderful -- everything about it. Great family tradition! We had none, so I made up my own after leaving home. :--)

The "marble shack" is on "wheels" so my brother dubbed it a "marble mobile home" ;-)

(wheels hidden under on left side)

We have been coming every summer here since 1978!

So this is the famous olive tree, it's a beauty ~ and what a view you have. The "marble shack" sounds like a good find to me! No wonder my friend in England goes to Greece twice a year every year for a week of replenishment. Hmm hmm good.

The olive tree is next to my little shack, on a plot of land with 3 other little marble shacks and with an open view to the Aegean Sea (why I have yet to return to my city apartment?  ;-) In the noontime HOT hours, it is the coolest place on earth, nice sea breeze and fun friends around in the shade. The olive tree LOVES displaying mail art,( and yours is especially nice,) and needs a sud suet (((HUG))) from time to time!

...and the view from under my olive tree looking toward the sea....rough life ;-)

Katerina, thank you so much for a very nice blog and the splendid photos. Sometime you will have to tell me the story about this olive tree! It looks like a great home for art, people, and who knows what else. You mention it often on different places on the IUOMA site, so I am behind the times. ... But I appreciate what I see. Thanks :--)
