Needed: a crowded pub on London Marathon Sunday, April 26, 2015,

and a great "parea" of mail artist friends,

and a few other interesting characters:

Lots of fun materials and papers and postcards..and a Brit Postbox pencil sharpener:

and a whole lot of round-the-table collab work! Everyone is busy cutting and gluing

and drawing and even a bit of watercolor work, too:

Great Scott :-)

Stripygoose concentrating and creating,

Mail Art Martha getting help from Edmund ...

Well, MomKat is taking the photos, duh. (but also added her BLUE to some) are a few of  the results:

Thanks to Mail Art Martha, Stripygoose, Positively Postal,

and Andy and Elena...for an amazing mail art meet-up!

'Must do it again soon!

I am very disappointed at the reaction of the girl at the pub. The Peeps traditionally are left around to brighten up the life of people that find them, like that same girl, what a pity she has no poetry in her soul. I am glad the the ones on the telephone box were picked up so quickly, and all the ones in Victoria station too.

Yep, that is a BLUE cat-hat for Suus in Mokum!

Glad it arrived, thanks for the blog, Suus. xxx

Mail Art Martha nicely tagged us at her "This 'n That" blog :-)

I certainly enjoyed seeing those photographs although I wish they had been tagged because I don't recognize some of the faces. What fun to see tea on the table but no pub beer. My wife's relatives are Welsh sheep farmers, and they do love their tea. CrackerJack hats off to you all :-)

Aha! It did arrive fairly just had to "mellow", easy to understand that!

This group had fun making 15 mail art to see how many arrive,

that is one of the joys of the eternal network!

It arrived a week ago Katerina. So mail does travel quick, but the mail-artists themselves sometimes also need time to react...... All part of the game thought. Sending out mail-art when meeting othger mail-artists is quite a tradition, so keep that up for sure.......

Two weeks to arrive from London to Netherlands?

The EuroStar can "chunnel" faster than than that!

So glad it arrived, Ruud, thanks for the blog!

That's 2 out-of-these 7! Where might the others be....somewhere in the vast world of the post?

...happy to be in Greece :-)

Comment by Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat) on May 8, 2015 at 8:22pm

As we were leaving, the gal from the bar came by to wipe up

and she picked the Peeps of the wood box and told me to

"take 'em, we have no need of 'em"

(, not interested at all?...)

so that they wouldn't become "orphaned",

I brought a few back with me to Greece, Martha:

They are now happy with the other Peeps-on-the-eternal-network!
