Clever handmade envelope from Niklas Heed (and from Heleen)

This unusual envelope arrived safely to my mailbox

...someone at Hellas Post was careful to see which address this was to go to!

Brain Cell working!

Heleen de Vaan made it and sent it to Niklas who in turn sent it to me, and I may

be able to send it on to yet a third person on the list? We'll see!

Inside, Niklas sent fine art pieces...a postcard from the Middle Ages:

(oho...what does that say in the lower most left corner??? Val!)

Now then, it is a beautiful edifice:

Also, Niklas included thin, delicate paper with this:

(typing away on that novel, perhaps?)

and more prints here, too:

'Liking it all very much!

Thank you Niklas...and Heleen!

Yay! Happy to see that the "Brain Cell" address envelope arrived in Morocco! Thanks, Eva!

Now let's see if a few others arrive ok, too?

(great fun idea from Niklas and Heleen :-)

Whahoo! Great news that it arrived, Heleen...

Let's see how long it will take for one to arrive in Morocco? :-)

...and thank you, Heleen, for posting it at weird animals !

This is a nice story! I bet it would never arrive through Poste Maroc!! :D

Great that it arrived, and thank you for blogging, Katerina!

All honours to Niklas, as the idea was his. He had sent me an envelope which never arrived so far (I happened  to discover the envelope by this photo - and created this in reply). So the first try - from Sweden to the Netherlands - resulted in *lost post*. The second try - a new envelope from the Netherlands to Sweden - succeeded, and I'm very happy that the envelope made it from Sweden to Greece!
Looking forward to knowing what the next journey will be! (but don't feel obliged to pass on - you could create a  new envelope, too, of course!)
