Tea and ATC from Mercedes La Marquesa

Send from the USA on the 13th and received in the Netherlands at the 19th of August!!! Can you believe that? I wish all Mail Art had that speed. ;-) And in it was a teabag with the sentence "Sipping thoughts of peace, hope floats my way." The flavor? Moonlight Spice! I like to drink tea and will enjoy this thinking of Mercedes in New Mexico. The ATC also hit a favorite place,…

A Constellation card from Erin Young!

After being away from home for a while I found this lovely mail art from Erin Young on my doormat. The colors on the black background work so well. The sayings are so appropriate. It is a work of art, mail art! And yes the distances that the art travels around the world is mind blowing.

Thank you Erin.…

A good mail week

The next day I was spoiled again. Look at all the beautiful things I got from Stan Askew. Thank you so much for your art and the other goodies. And the beautiful envelop with the Janis Jopling stamps and the special stamping was a joy for me and my postman. He is also enjoying all the beautiful mail I get. He has asked me a while ago, why I get such special mail and loved my story about it. Now he always smiles when he sees me. I think it makes his job more enjoyable. Thanks so…

A other beautiful mail from Shellie Lewis

At the beginning of this week I received an other beautiful mail from Shellie Lewis, packed with goodies.

It is all so beautiful and now I have made my first inchies. Love the process of this tiny pieces of art. ATC is not new to me. Shellie, you have spoiled me again. Thank you so much.…

Mysterious white postcard from Petrolpetal

Today I received a mysterious white postcard from Petrolpetal. Is it a swimsuit? Is it a fish? Is it the letter M?

And then the question of how can it still be so white after that long journey? I keep looking at it and see more and more possibility's to what it can be. And that is why real art is so special! Thank you, Petrolpetal.…

Colorful greetings from Petrolpetal

While we have here rain, snow and cold weather, I needed a bit of sunshine and that is what landed in my mailbox! Thank you Petrolpetal for  your beautiful card. I love it.

Triangle envelop from Phillip Lerche

On the 26th of November I received the triangle envelop of Phillip Lerche. And....... forgot to blog about it. Today I have seen the blog from Katherina (Momcat) and found out that I didn't notice the Upside Down Jenny. I had been reading about it and so I am very honored that it is now in my collection. No Photo this time, because the blog of Katherina shows it all. Thank you Phillip!
