If mail art came in a candy sack, I would be dragging my haul along the ground back to my lair so I could roll around in all my sweets!

Just look at this stash:
This is truly some impressive stuff... and it's not like some years when you were a kid and all you seemed to get in your candy sack were some tootsie rolls and hard candies. This was like getting a whole sack's-worth of Babe Ruth bars and Nougat Logs! If these were real sweets, I'd be having a sugar belly ache for days!
From Val Herman, a silly Scooby Doo greeting from his travels in Great Britain. and on the reverse side, a hint of the artistic explorations he may have made during his visit to the Island(?) The graphic is great on any account!
And from Diane Keys, a red flag of warning that she altered in a brilliant piece of mail. It's AWESOME! Police tape marking a "DANGER" area--something too delicate to be mailed of it's own accord, Diane "found" some clear plastic into which the tape could be inserted and sewn-up to make the perfect cross-over of Halloween foreboding and TRASHPO art. It's one of my new favorite pieces by Diane and will have to be blogged in the Trashpo Group at some point, too, so members there can be jealous!
Parys St. Martin sent me a kind of two-fer-one art deal... A great sample of her digital work was burrowed and hidden inside a black envelope, which in turn was hidden inside an envelope made of canvas that depicted another digital work of Fluxus:
