February 27, 2011 - New IUOMA friend Linn Colette sent me a first envelope of mail-art showcasing the piece above. Despite the humor, it is a delicate and elegantly made piece, much smaller than the typical postcard size. I think Linn is involved in Mail-Art 365. Many people in this group are using images termed vintage (might also be called antique). This is a traditional collage with ribbon and paper of different textures. Linn's envelopes are excellent:
Here's the reverse side:
Many thanks, Linn, for this great piece! She has started her own mail-art blog that already displays some fine work by IUOMA members.
Fire is a mixed blessing. That is why we have Fire Departments. Remember Steve? According to the legend, he was standing at the bar drinking and absorbed in telling one of his famous stories. He had several dollar bills hanging out of his back pocket. Ordinarily, you would think Deb (she loved Tequila) would have stolen the bills - that's how she was. Instead, on a whim, she lit the bills on fire, still in Steve's pocket of course. He stood there for a relatively long time oblivious with his jeans burning. Finally, the patrons deluged him with every manner of liquid available to them. Steve's a funny guy. What became of Deb is another tale entirely. I doubt it had anything to do with setting Steve's pants on fire, though.
