Another triple header this week starting with a lovely Valentine from Katerina Nikoltsou....I think this reads Love Again but it could be a Greek word as well. I wish I'd had the time to send out Valentine's this year....maybe next year...Thank you, Katerina...Hope all's well in turbulent Greece.

 Next up: Big Hair from Starnberg...the fabulous Mona Lisa Winehouse from Tictac. This two in one tribute comes in its own first day of issue Stamp Booklet with instructions for proper usage. Somehow the Winehouse look really fits Mona who many art critics believe was too spartan with her eyeliner and false eyelashes. Tarted up by Tictac she is more Louvre-worthy than ever.

 But wait...there's more....Also included in Tictac's variety pak was a UFO siting on Lake Starnberg (where Mad King Ludwig was drowned under mysterious circumstances). Thank you, Tictac. (Notice these are "Sunworkshippers". I think it's a German thing).

 Finally, this supersonic sucker from Kerri Pullo. Kerri's art is so three dimensional I have to photograph it. Complete with one of Kerri's patented painted envelopes, this puts me in mind of a prop for a low-budget Hollywood sci-film with product placement by Tootsie Roll. So debauched is my imagination that everything revolves around brand names and scams. On the other hand, can't you see Dale Arden in gold lame, sucking on this as Flash Gordon fends off Ming the Merciless? Meanwhile the card background renders the surface of the Haptic Planet with vivid granularity. Thank you Kerri.

You're welcome and thanks for your kind words especially Agapi




The Lolli From Outer Space...a magic wand to ward off untoward demons and fire ants, scepter for a small orb for small orgasms (think Sleeper).....I love your envelope, the perfect capsule for this lozenge

I am so glad the lolli arrived okay! I was so afraid it would have been shattered! I am so glad you liked it! I'm pretty sure it will not attract any scorpions, black widows, any any fire ants as I dipped it in gel medium like 800 times before painting it!

Thank you, David for this super special blog! xxx

You are a master at presentation.

('Love the Greek blues and whites :-)

And yes, that is Greek written after "Love" is "Αγάπη" (Agapi = Love)

But "Love Again" is a nice thought, too!

Some great art by TicTac, and Kerri (remembering Ming the Merciless!)
