|This week's mail|
A lobster for a friend who just returned from a week on Cape Cod eating lobster!
She had the real thing -- now she got a paper lobster in the mail.
And, I didn't get any lobster so I am a bit crabby.
Some giant forks, some washi tape, handmade envelopes....
Love those old Life magazines for cutting up and collaging.
I didn't get one single incoming piece of mail on Tuesday -- I couldn't believe it!
That hasn't happened to me in years.
We were not amused.
Some handmade postcards and envelopes, Chinese red envelopes and one for SuperHero.
A typewritten letter went out -- among other things.
More handmade postcards (including one for Maureen who has chickens).
A nice recovery from a pathetic lack of incoming on Tuesday.
Burning Man Postmarks by James Cline, postmaster extraordinaire of Burning man.
(Thanks Alice and Phyllis)
More of the wonderful food stamps from La Poste in France.
I can never get enough of these.
Merci beaucoup, Isabelle!
|A Mail Artist must always take time for lunch -- garlic noodles, imperial rolls and five spice chicken at Perilla here in San Francisco.|
No, I didn't eat it all.
An afternoon walk today and a lovely letter box.
|POST BOX -- Read this and weep --|
I posted this link already on the Facebook page for Cappuccino and Art but think it is important to post it on the blog too. Use them or lose them, people! Get out there and mail some letters. I am doing my part. We may lose our post boxes and six day delivery one of these days and that is just sad. I am wondering if the postal services in other countries are having the same problems as ours (anyone know?).
This is a long holiday weekend in the US. Things are hoppin' in San Francisco.
We have the SF Zine Fest this weekend in Golden Gate park and the farmers markets are fully loaded. And there is a party with my namer on it on Monday so things are looking good. You all have a festive and safe weekend and SEND OUT SOME MAIL ART!
