Words to live by from Richard Canard

So happy to find more words of wisdom from Richard Canard. sorry parts are cut off. This is my first christmas card of the season from harold and… Continue

Ray Johnson Tribute from Svenja

I wish I could read what Svenja wrote on the envelope but I don't think it says Flying Monkeys. The envelope is great and I'm assuming the Ray piece is related to his birthday. The buttons are enormous. I've never seen any that big. They are about 2" in diameter… Continue

Photo Vispo from Jim SantAmour

A really complex piece-it is ony 4" X 3" tall and came as is without an envelope. He writes that is is his own photo of a motel in St. Petersburg. I would never have thought of using a photograph as a background until Helen's Vispo Call. The text appears to be done in acrylic paint, but I can't tell. All of it has texture-I love this piece thank you… Continue

A Book With an Identity Crisis by Cheryl Penn

Reached the limit for photo posting so will put the beginning pages in the comment section sorry it's backwards. I think Nancy Bell Scott's suggestion is a good one to only photograph a select number of pages out of trashbooks to avoid scannitis, but this book from Cheryl needed to be shown in its' entirety as it is the journey of a soul searching book.

Linoleum Block Print from ArtLikeArt

This came from Sandra in Sarastoa. She is apparently very demanding of herself as she dared imply this was not entirely successful! This is an amazing piece of art. Sandra has a great sense of humor and irony, but this also shows her serious side as she said she was overlaying her self-portrait onto a cancer cell. She herself does not have cancer, but was created as more of an… Continue

Nadine's Trash Pile

This great piece of Trashpo came from Nadine Wendell-Mojica today. I was thrilled the post office did not fold or bend and I can figure out how to profit by putting my home in the movies. I hope the  dude with the mustache and wig is only an extra! thank you…

Parisian Pacifier from Dean Marks

My mailman was wildly impressed this one. The pacifier goes all the way through the cardboard and all stayed intact. I like the idea of… Continue

Inter-trashional (tm Lisa Iversen) mail from Cuan Miles

I am so excited to be getting trashpo from many different coutries. This piece from Cuan has candy wrappers and a complete candy box with tattoos on the front. It all stayed completely intact on it's journey to the US. I love that this looks to be vintage trash.… Continue

Trashpo Master--Neil Gordon

I have never received MA that was made entirely out of trash-backing and all. He writes on the front of the envelope (recycled) "No Trash No Glory" which really says it all.  I'm concluding Neil works in the travel industry as there is much trash relating to… Continue

Trashpo from Budapest

This great piece arrived from TOrma Cauli. I love the combination of the very modern digital background and the sort of primitive trashpo. All this world class trash just reminds me of how similar life is no matter where we live. I always imagine other countries being so different, but Torma using pieces of a flier most likely advertising some service shows that we all behave the… Continue

Moontrash from Lisa Iversen

This piece arrived in a beautiful box. She says she found this crushed can tucked inside a tree. I think she must have sanded this down to get the sheen on it that does make it look lunar. It's mounted on a 5 by 7 or so posterboard and looks to be leaping out. I really love this thank you sooo much Lisa! very elegant trashpo--so classy I think it's more of… Continue

Love vs. the ego from Richard Canard

a departure for Richard who has always sent me text up until now. But it's just as thought provoking. I take this as the buddhist sense of death to the ego

Asemic Illumination from Rebecca Resinski

This is numbered '3' so I assume it's one of a series. This is so beautiful in person.The background is gold and she has managed to print over it with the asemics being in the negative space-really great thank you Rebecca!

Zombies Made It Rain by Andrea Jay

Andrea cracks me up. I can't believe I get her ongoing diary cartoon strip for free. I will never think about rain the same way again.

"Inspired by Life" card from Holly Cooper

That's what the cool stamp on Holly's card says. This is the fantastic story that went with the piece:

"One night I had a dream in which I made origami birds and flowers. When I awoke I waited a few days thinking the urge would pass. Then I bought paper and started watching origami videos on youtube."

Doesn't get more modern than that. learning an ancient craft…
