Haptic Happy birthday mail art...Erni's CARE PACKAGE arrived 7 Feb! Good Karma!

Been delayed in the unusual European winter weather perhaps,

a package from Erni in Hamburg usually takes only 48 hours to reach Greece, it took 2 weeks...

but it arrived ( er, was "picked up" at the post office,) TODAY...my day!

Thank you Haptic Werewolf xxx

Of course the package itself is SUPER fun,

and I think the postal clerks are actually beginning to smile ;-)

(must give them some Erni Bar Fan Club membership cards)

Look Dean Marks...lots of Bar Codes!!!

It comes from the PALACE, so it has royal contents indeed:

One carefully opens the layers of wrapping to discover a most beautiful "Spring" box!

So necessary on this ugly, cold, rain/snow day in Greece (What's with this weather???)

And surprises abound inside...wrapped or unwrapped:

Perhaps the real brass idol was detected by the postal machine, sniffed by the security dogs,

but allowed to pass as the "CARE package might just be a generous gesture from Germany to Greece

(we are in much need of that, thank you ;-) Erni, is that a coffee bean grinder? or a choco bean grinder?

It is very nice...and the statue is beautiful...holding a "lotus" yes?

I offered my gifts from Erni to the god...GOOD KARMA!

There we are : Erni and Kate! 'Love it! xxx

Choco, tea, and super great cookies (or biscuits if you are British) "CARE" packages ;-)

TUFO...ecological/ bio food:

and eggs! Yes and a super KINDER egg too! What this is full of birthday surprises!

eggs are hard boiled and it is good EAT ART! Thank you for the birthday protein, Erni,

you are lookin' good!

The Kinder egg will hold its "toy" surprise until this evening's party. What fun!

The Haptic Werewolf has surpassed all expectations! What a great "EAT MAIL ART" this is!

Many thanks. Erni, for making today a very special day! xxx

Bon jour, Dean, I like my eggs hard..boiled :-)

(Also scrambled, and poached, and sunny-side up, over easy,

soft-boiled, in crepes, and any-way-shape-and-form :-)

Oh, Erni...yes it was way back in February...I am 5 months older than Mick Jagger.

Great piece from Erni. So how do you like your eggs?

 How did I miss this one?

Buddha: bhumisparsha-mudra, now in a  place of honor on the shelf with the Rosetta Stone. Good Karma!

Thank you for the sweet EAT ART! Thank you for a great birthday surprise box, Erni! xxx

Many thanks, Erni! I did not open the Tofu box yet ( because I cannot eat tofu),

and now I am very happy it has nutmeg!!! Which is so much used in Greek foods...

like mousaka! yummy. And I am thrilled to have the brass Buddha with the bowl, will offer

my foods daily:bhumisparsha-mudra.

and Dean, there is much "wealth" of good greetings here and in your wonderful card, too! 

Thanks you, guys! xxx
