"Hangin' Out in London" from the Artist in Seine

This was to arrive before I left for London,but still fun to see now upon return!

Hahaha...on a plastic hanger , that did NOT break!

It is amazing how mail art like this from InSeine arrives

WITHOUT an envelope...just naked :-)

The postman loves it, even though it does not fit in my mailbox.

I love it...all the colors and texture , of course...and the "TUBE" direction :-)

Yep, that is how I went from Heathrow to Paddington Station...

On the flip side:

...bedtime stories?

This is #994...getting close to #1000 :-)

I'm a-hoping (hint hint) !

Many thanks, dear InSeine xxx

..nice French postage, too:

I think it is a scarf from the South of France that was heading for the bin before I saved it.  I think most of it is glued down but not all of it as it needs to flow in the wind.  The feathers are cool, I had forgotten about them.  The saw blade is scary and I surely remember that one.  Glued on a calendar girl charity calendar.  Always for a good cause.

Incerdible - but at the same time credible from Dean!

There once were feathers and ribbons, too:

I am in awe, too, Stripygoose Sue, as to how Dean's constructions arrive in one piece...

of course he's sent a "saw" once:

and the corks:

so the Greek postman is already used to In Seine's fun creations :-)

They arrive...never, never in an envelope, never wrapped for shipping, oh, no!

Wonderful! Is that some kind of weaving Dean, I can't quite tell. I love the look of it though. And just like that in the post? Is it all stuck down then? I'm intrigued.

And I do remember Wendy Craig - oh yes indeed.

Happy it arrived but sorry you didn't get to take it along with you to London for translation.  Wendy is a UK icon in her own right.  But the people you were hanging out with might be too young to remember her!

Thanks for the lovely blog.  You're an Ace!
