I'm so happy to be able to finally blog this work from Marie. I love how delicate and minimal it all is. And Marie, Queen of Aesthpo has sent me trashpo!! I think she's slowly converting. And don't let the cute Hello Kitty stamps on the envelope fool you. She said she collected the wires from her Frankenstein lab. The wires are used for electrodes put on little mouse heads. Once you have the whole story, the art takes a tragic turn. But I absolutely love it. Thanks Marie!

Aesthpo and Trashpo are cross pollinating maybe?

Diane blogs trashpo from Marie...and Marie blogs trashpo from Diane. Perfect mail art exchange!!

And even doing trashpo, Marie's art is delicate and elegant...nestling things.

Marie-that's too funny that your colleagues are supporting your art and now you don't know how to tell them to stop:) Birds would love those wires. Such cool nests they would make. But now NBS will get some Japanese wires. I didn't know Japan was super clean. That's good to know. I consider myself extremely lucky if I end up being the only recipient of MW trashpo and vow to faithfully and dutifully blog it. Thanks for the birthday wish Cheryl-an overstuffed mailbox would be the perfect birthday present:)

I agree - 'nest' is a good word - in time for winter too - well up there - down here the sun strikes! DK - happiest birthday of all you've ever had to you - I hope your post box is full :-) XXX

Then you must save what you can find for the queen.

Your sister is right, prettylily! It's very hard to find any trash here.

Comment by prettylily on November 29, 2011 at 4:09am
Yes, trashpo can be scary! Germs and stuff..... Bet it is because you live in Japan. My sister lives there and says everything is so clean.

Thanks prettylily. I'm still struggling to do any kind of trashpo and to enjoy it. Hmmm... I'm afraid all the trashpo I will ever make will have to go to the Queen ;-)))

Oh thanks, Marie, I look forward !

What have I missed? Marie is now doing trashpo? I agree with DVS's nest statement . Pretty nice trashpo, Marie.
