Angie has been steadfast in sending me her pieces WBOB (without benefit of blog). Here are just four of the things I've received since April including but not limited to: A pair of ATCS featuring a beautiful babe (possibly Jean Shrimpton) and a blue footed booby. The model has a haptic noose around her face, the booby seems content to sit aukwardly upon his continent. Also an alphabet card constructed from signage and a large breasted lingerie model proudly deploying her voting franchise. I…Continue
Today I received this very pleasing card from Suus. A really nice surprise - really really nice. Thank you :>)
Erni is fast becoming one of my favorite people here at IUOMA. Not only is he talented, intuitive and wise... He is most GENEROUS!
We've recently been learning more about one another. In one exchange, I told him simply that I loved a piece of his work, "Straight Red Tango." Imagine my surprise when a package arrived from Erni, containing said piece of art!…Continue
Luckily my neighbours were home so they could take this Giant-Supermega-very-interesting-parcel from the postman. I don't know what to say! The parcel itself is already fantastic. So thinks Troels, the ginger one.Continue
Thought I had already blogged these, then found them when I was sorting my mail art pile. I live in the historic Elgin Watch Factory District. Elgin is know for Elgin Watches, but the factory doesn't exist anymore. Love these…Continue
I think I've posted this upside down, but it works from all angles. For some reason the turquose 50 cent stuck out to me. This is one of a great series on consumerism-aka DKonsumer DKonconciousness-feast for the eyes thank you Lynn!

Now this card definitely came from England! "Let us eat cake"!!!
And it seems to be a great "add 'n pass around -the-table-as we drink"...tea? ale? wine?
Look at these fun details...characters one and all:
I received this last week from Dean as part of his "Mail Art On The Road" adventure. Dean rode his bicycle from Paris to London for the Jubilee. Joined in a Mail Art Meet Up in London. Hung out with Mail Art Martha and …Continue
Many thanks to Brent Leopold for his amazing watercolor cards.

Good Mail Art Day in my mail box :-)
Nadine in California writes that "Pacific Blue is NOT as Blue as Greek Blue" So, true!
But this is a great card and fun guy by-the-seaand 'love the ocean waves! Thank you, Nadine

Theresa Williams wears a great many hats, most of her own devising. The one that sent me this is the curator of the International Museum of Small Things, a post she has held since April when Mr. Fenwick passed away and gave her, with his dying last grasp, the small key to the small museum. It exists, like many rare and exotic things, in Bradner, Ohio. In fact, on the way in to Bradner there’s a big billboard that says, “Welcome to Bradner, Home of the Giant Pickle.” Many people have lobbied…Continue

The Slow Def Blog Jam continues, even in the searing heat of summer. Tonight we feat Carina Granlund, my Finnish friend who has sent me this wonderful Robot made with “an easy etching technique using gum arabicum.” Carina, I want to know more about this technique.
The robot is of the mid-century modern variety, anxiety-ridden and and prepared (he carries…Continue
Steph sent me this mail art in honor of her recent trip to Hawaii. I don't know how she has done this, but it looks like the design in hand done in Sharpie. --it looks like those God's eyes. Hawaii has been good to you thank you Steph!

A real wonder if I ever saw one. A little apple & banana stand made from a cheese box. Covered with the smallest beads and bits including mini books which you can read.
- It came in a package with another surprise. I spend most of last night just looking at it.…Continue
Well I am told that our housekeeper and postman had a right giggle over this one. Apparently the postman said to our housekeeper; “Do they think we don’t have buckets in France!”
This is no cardboard cutout. It’s the real thing, and without an envelope! As Erni would say; It’s 26cm (10 inches) high and 26cm (11 inches) diameter at the top.…Continue
Hey mailart pals
I've been given a public space to display mailart at a new mail project that's opened in the very centre of London. The project is called Welcome to Real, and bills itself as the first network to be run by post. Regular readers of my REAL wall may have a little something to…
