More apparel, this from Dean Marks, sent un-enveloped from France: It was beyond smashing and hilarious to find this stiff red HAND in the mailbox yesterday. Somehow Dean made a cardboard cutout to fit this lovely Bordeaux-colored left-handed leather glove and got it in there, graced it with a large ruby-colored gem on the ring finger (gold band of ring is painted on and can be seen on the other side) plus a very cool and mod bracelet, and attached it to Bordeaux-box cardboard. He addressed and stamped it, and it made the journey here completely intact via the postal system. Isn't it a beauty? Other side: As Dean states above, he finds interesting things on the streets as he bicycles through Paris. He calls them mail art omens, and they have to be used in his next card. Did I luck out!
With the shoes from Erni in Germany, and now a red glove from Dean in France, one has to conclude that European men feel driven to dress up the plain from Maine. Others might speculate as to why, but it's a worthy cause. Using the pocket shred from De Villo Sloan, also in the past week, as a dress to complete the outfit, I am all set. Please send mail art to the county jail after this new outfit is worn for a night on the town.
Thank you, Dean! Between you and Erni for fashionable mail art, it doesn't get any better than this!
