Here is something that might be of interest to this group.  It arrived a couple of weeks ago and I know nothing more than what you see; nor do I need to.  Whether it is an on-going project or just an anomaly I don't really care; I have done one and sent it back and it would be nice if everyone else did too.  It is the sort of meaningless nonsense that mail art used to thrive on and as such means everything.  Let the mail infest Mr J F's welcome mat as thickly as the fungi depicted on them . . .

Such a fun rubber stamped envelope from Jean. Great use of the oreo stamp too.
