Did you know this bit of cheerio info?

I loved Cheerios as a kid, and even today with honey flavor!

What a great way to recycle a cereal box,

and it is a super "odd shaped" mail art card, too.

It arrived "nude" and oddly in tact with nice little postage stamps :-)

Thank you for the "spoonful of nostalgia", Phillip! xxx

(some "o"s for the cheeri"o"s coming your way soon)

It's true, the US postage stamps are self-sticky, and so they cannot be "soaked" and removed!

They are "FOREVER" on the card :-)

Well, technically it is illegal to resume them. And I am much happier for you to keep them.

Also, Phillip, the postage stamps were not cancelled...

maybe I can return them to you to use again?

Although they are special designs, nice for my collection :-)

It is amazing how such a "cut-out" can arrive in the mail...just fine!

Thanks a lot, and I realized that my pic doesn't show how your card is so unique:

the "o"s on the side

I smiled at your comment on in Seine's blog post as yours was cut from the same side of quite a large box of cereal. Glad it made it undamaged - I was a little bit worried about the little os on the side.
