Mostly postal but art and other things of interest too.
Come and visit.

Take a little walk with me around San Francisco.

Love these old Asian tins, the red and gold, the lovely graphics.
Yes, I have collected quite a few of them.
Happily, the new ones are very nice too and not expensive.

Shall we buy a Chinese newspaper? Great for mailart projects or wrapping presents.

And this is the Golden Fire Hydrant celebrated every April for being the one that saved my neighborhood in the 1906 earthquake.
It is repainted gold and decorated with flowers every year.

The lovely light in an artist's studio.

And, of course we have to stop for an inspiring lunch too.
I am always inspired by food.

Some rubber stamps for sale.

A shrine in a joss shop.
I am a real sucker for these.

A lovely old paint box.

A very San Francisco sight, a menu hanging on a gate.
Take one to make an envelope with.

Hope you enjoyed the walk and lunch.
If you enjoyed this, let me know, and I will show you more
from my travels around town.

Happy Mailing!


  1. I always enjoy your visual travels! And dream of visiting such a lovely place.

  2. I would love to see more!! I don't get to San Francisco often and when I do, I don't get time to peruse the city properly.

  3. Thanks you two...
    @titancia - you gave me an idea. People are always emailing me about visits to SF, what to do, where to eat, where are the cool shops...I should just do a post of visiting SF and have it in the archives for when people ask. Thanks for giving me an idea.

  4. hey pamela!
