|Onward to Washington DC and the National Postal Museum.
Beautiful blue skies and blue banners on the museum.
|Rather large and impressive building, don't you think? As it should be.
|The building was once and post office. I can just picture the folks in old time dress lining up to buy stamps at these windows.
|This is the way a post office should look.
|A museum with a mail truck. And a postbox. And stamping stations. And free postcards.
Now this is a museum I can relate to.
Did I mention the free postcards?
And the stamping station?
|This was my favorite exhibit....
|I spent the most time in here looking at every stamp...
|I thought of my mail art pal Alice S when I saw this. She has the largest stamp collection of anyone I know.
|The beauty of this show is that they acknowledge mail art! Isn't this great?
I saw the work of several people I know.
|And the store.......did you now you can buy this charming little book? I already had my copy but if I didn't I would have snapped one up. And a mail truck too.
|I didn't play with dolls when I was little -- I played with mail trucks and lady letter carriers.
|Stamp silk ties for the guys....
my guy wouldn't even think of wearing one but maybe someone would...
|Some of my DC collaged cards. We stayed in the Foggy Bottom district. Isn't that name a riot?
|I couldn't mail my cards here -- these are in the Postal Museum for display only. But they do have a
little post office right there and you can get a good postmark.
