When the Greek gods and goddesses meet SA...fun from Lesley Magwood Fraser

Here come the Minoan gals, right from the Island of Crete ...what happens when a few old Greek postcards are found in south Africa? Well, Lesley turns them into very wonderful and artisic collage-altered-postcards!

The greek island and South Africa behind the goddesses....and on the back of this cad there is a Greek greeting:

From April 29, 1991...

"We are so happy that you came this summer with your friends.

The reservations came from "Greek sun" (travel agency?)

with lots of kisses from all of us here at "Golden Beach"...

See? Greek friendly hospitality, always ;-)

Other amazing cards from Lesley:


Isn't this goddess lovely?

...and the Greek gods...with soccer, of course:

and a great envelope, too! thank you muchly, Lesley! xx

This is very clever and fun, Magwood. :--)  And I advise against putting a "just" before the "fun mail"--it is every bit as needed in this world as other types.

Oooooo I am red faced - sorry to mix up Crete, Minoans and Greeks! Lucky I didnt mention Cypriots and Turks???

Thanks for blogging Katerina, and yes, it is just fun mail, but when I see anything Greek you always spring to mind. :))
