I thought I would share a little of the wonderful mail I've been getting lately. I certainly have noticed how thoughtful and generous mail artists are.
I often find treasures in my mailbox. And, I like everything!
|INCOMING VINTAGE ENVELOPES|
I absolutely cannot find any vintage envelopes around SF so my pal
Kelly P send me a shipment from her travels....these are going to be so much fun to work with.
Leigh from the big state of Texas sent me a very cool vintage book of San Francisco printers and typographers. Another thing that will be great for collage and mail art.
From SA in Pasadena -- another wonderful collage.
Kelly P has done it again -- she made an origami type booklet with a letter sewn inside.
From Laura Dunkin-Hubby -- a letter and collage arrived sealed up in clear plastic.
The photo doesn't do it justice.
|INCOMING French Book|
Vintage French phrase book (God knows I need it!) from Millicent that was really fun to cut up and collage with....
|Cutting up cereal boxes to use as postcard backs -- love re-cycling!|
|Chinatown Joss Paper|
My pal Sally and I both liked this joss paper on a Chinatown shopping trip. We thought those round symbols looked like postmarks. You think?
I have been using the pages from these Chinatown booklets for letter writing and using the envelopes to mail them. Quite a nice combination, don't you think?
I might wear mostly black but I do love those oranges, red and pinks.
|I'm picking up paper ephemera all over SF in my travels around town. I have some new booklet-making in mind. You'll see.....|
|Got out the stamp collection and all my postal stickers and....|
