Mail art from France and the "Road not Taken" from Valentine and Andy and Elena and Dean

On the way to Paris? Tickets ready?

There was a IUOMA mail artists' meeting in Paris this past weekend,

but a couple of us, while we had plans and tickets, didn't make it.We all made mail art though!

Valentine Mark Herman was to travel from southern France to Paris, train tickets ready, but cancelled:

The route from Sigean to Montpellier and then north to Paris.

Sad that Val didn't make the trip, but it sure is nice mail art that he sent.

Some great lino stamps along-the-way, tell us that his cats: Bianca and Trouble were happy:

Val looked after one, and the other.

There will be a "next time"...My "not valid" ticket, day, some day we shall get to Paris...

or meet another time, another place.

Andy and Elena from the UK traveled the EuroStar and arrived in Paris.

They sent this beautiful street scene of Paris, and it arrived quickly via mail!

It's "almost" like being there with them. Thank you dearies!

And, a special circle cerealistic piece from Dean Marks...

well with at least 1 item he found during the past weekend , the other item? :-)

It is not a pizza cardboard box...but All-Bran, yes? Always fun from the Artist-in-Siene! 

Thank you to Val and Andy and Elena and Dean! Treasured items all! xxx MERCI BEAUCOUP!

French trains are a nightmare. I hope you're luckier next time.
