Orange lovers

When I was preparing this mail to send to two Orange lovers, I found out that there still is no IUOMA-group for Orange lovers.

So here it is! If Orange is your favourite colour, and if you want to share Orange mail with the world: join!

(by the way, my favourite colour is Turquoise...)

Heleen, thank you.  Wow, what a package celebrating ORANGE arrived today, Saturday.  Very inventive letter/note page with the members in the upper right. Excellent example of mail art, this picture barely shows half of it.

Congrats to the ORANGE Dutch :-)

Vizma, I wished I had send you the chocolate eggs now instead of last summer... (and I should knit gloves for you, so to read...)

New orange mail: my entry for the 'Strange Mail Contest'! (well, it appears not that strange: the receiver replied to my entry form that there already had been sent a green one :-)

So nice to see warm orange.. when I finish hibernating and my hands stop trembling, I'll post some pics here! (We just had our coldest day in 9 years!!)

Whahoo! That was fast! 'Glad to see that the "Orange" arrived, Heleen...

My photo and/or scan makes the orange too red, and there is no where in Greece for me to find orange stamping ink :-(

But we know it is for ORANGE!

Katerina's Orange Time arrived!

This is the back (or front) side, with more orange - ehm, my scanner turned the orange a little red, but fortunately Katerina has marked them:

And it arrived in this envelope:

With an orange sun and orange in the Greek stamp:

(and lots of turquoise which made me even happier, shh, don't tell)

And Katerina had sent an other Orange envelope, which also arrived today:

Which contained Blue mail art...(great!)... Thank you very much, Katerina!

Finally put the Orange mail into the letterbox, which in the NEtherlands is Orange, too!


And a 12th spool knit cord to send to Val.

Amazing picture of the bean flower, and funny other garden orange (nice composition with the green), thank you for sharing, Zois!

Finally I found some time to pack some orange things to send to the other 11 group members!

I hope it will pass the customs well (and hope the customs don't mind the green form turned orange :-) and with not too much delay. And finally I hope that the 11 of you'll appreciate it.

Among the orange things a small punniked (spool-knit) orange yarn cord (here they are gathered, just before being put into the separate packages):
