A bit scary? No, although the postgal came close to losing a finger or two.

How did Dean know that I am the daughter of a carpenter?

In order to see what is going on here...I picked up the hammer and saw!

Real metal cutting saw here...amazing construction on a video case base,

and amazingly it survived the journey through the postal services.

The gals are, well...the gals :-) 

Maybe Dean is trying to tell me to "saw-it-off"...the extra fat?

In any case, it is a FAB piece of mail art as only Dean can make and send!

The message says it all...a Mail Art Omen commemorating our Midnight in Paris...sigh!

xxx many thanks Dean! My dear friend...how could I not LOOOOOVE this? :-)

Penny black my eye.  Look at this stamp from Cheryl Penn.  I shall have the ladies running with this stamp!  And it's not cancelled.

Hey Dean, thanks for sharing your girl-enticing secrets with me. Stamps do work, and if you like I'll send you some stamp hinges, and even go as far as to lend you my perforation chart (but I want it back before the weekend's fun 'n' games start!). How are your banana Chat Up Lines doing?

There he goes showing off again with his penny black stamps.  Be careful, it may be a trap.  I bet that's how he works the girls; "Do you want to come over to my place and see my 2 penny black stamps, and lots of red ones?"

   Then again it might work better than me asking if they want to come over to see my saw collection!

PS Sadly, I do not own a penny black stamp.  I just said that to impress the stamp collectors at the expo.  I don't have any etchings either ...

Yep, it's a 1d Red, Katerina. the 1d Black was the world's first ever posagte stamp, the 1d  Red the second. 5I have 2 1d Blacks in mly ciollection, and quite a lot of 1d Reds) Val

I think Dean hiccuped in his message about the Penny Black. (Do you REALLY have a Penny Black, Dean? Wow) My dear Valentine once gave me a Penny...I think it is a Red? Anyway, great gals, eh? And with the saw? Sharp message?

Now, about the St. James Route...does it run through Paris?

'May want to make a stop there, at Point Zero again soon :-)

I was tempted to quote the song lyrics, 'if I was a carpenter, and you were a lady', but they would be appropriate as you ARE a lady.

It's nice to see that the SmartSis are back. of course, there's a mesage here, Dean -- your artistic genius and sense of humour.

Here it is, but sadly I do not see a route starting from SA.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Way_of_St._James_(route_descriptions)  It's quite famous, but just want to do it because it is well marked and you can't get lost ... but that could change with me!

Comment by cheryl penn on April 10, 2012 at 12:21pm

Do First Day stamps get the observers to repeat themselves because of what they saw? What is the St James route? Its good to have this information on hand before deciding? such FAB ladies :-)!! 

Comment by Dean aka Artist in Seine on April 10, 2012 at 11:02am

Forgot to say that the stamps are of the St. James route, and if anyone has a desire to one day walk all or part of it, let me know.

A bit scary is an understatement!  "But if I had a hammer, I would hammer ..."

If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning, I'd hammer in the evening, All over the world, I'd hammer out Trashpo, I'd hammer out Mail Art, I'd hammer out love between all the Mail Artists, All over the world.

    And surely hope I never find a hammer!

Yes, the stamps, glad you brought that up as I had forgotten.  I went to an Expo and they had a few stands of people selling stamps.  Actually they are clubs and can get stamps for their members before they are released to the post office.   They also have an ink stamp that says; "First day" All this seemed to be very important to the people at the stand.  I was just happy to get this new stamp for 20 grams for within Europe.   Anyway, I stood in line to get the "First day" ink stamp, as I thought it would make me look important amoung these stamp collectors. "I say olde chap, do you have a penny black?  Well I have a penny black.”  I said.  You should have seen everyone’s eyebrows raise.  But then needed to leave the expo quickly as the stamp collectors started getting restless!
