Since many years the Platypus is one of my most favourite animals. And every now and then a platypus reaches my mail box, all the way from Oz (and other countries).
Today I am happy to show you some of them.

Above the great amazing sweet Platypus, made thanks to Onions. Thank you Katerina!

Below the beautiful collage by Nicole Eippers:

And this Platypus collage I received from Laurel as a 'thank you' card for a postcrossing card I had sent her (of a hedgehog, another interesting animal, as is the echidna):

Feel free to add your Platypus, too!

And now I realize that I've never created a Platypus as mail art  (I've made 'usual' drawings and paintings but no postable ones so far :-).

So if there's anyone who would like to receive Platypus Mail Art from me, please let me know!

Although the Echidna is not the Platypus, I consider them cousins, if not siblings, so I'am posting a brilliant postage stamp which showed up  on a wonderful collage by Tonipoet.


The rest of this collage, as well as the envelope and other mail art this Echidna arrived in/with, I scheduled to post this coming Friday on the Real Weird Animals blog (click to open). You can see this stamp there, then, too.

Thank you very much, Toni!

In the Netherlands we have the expression 'een gat in de lucht springen van blijdschap', which means 'to jump a hole in the air from happiness'. That's what I did when I received this mail art full of Platypus Postage Stamps from Vizma.


Reconsidering this expression I think I'd better jump into the opposite direction: jump a hole in the earth, deep enough to cross it and to go directly to downunder to join Vizma and her wonderful neighbour animals!

Thank you very much, Vizma!
