Good Things from the Mail Box

Don't you just LOVE getting mail?
I know I do. It is often a highlight of my day. But when there is NO mail.....well.....let's just say I get very crabby.
Lately my mail box hasn't been as happy as it sometimes is....
I have gotten a few beauties to share with you.
From the lovely MISS MILLICENT this cool envelope arrived recently. A red security envelope folded inside out and stitched together -- oh!
And some roses sewn on to complete whole postal beauty.

See that stitching? Miss Millicent is a whiz with a sewing machine....

Anything I get from Dori I love.....two terrific envelopes with Rolo cards inside....

These two came in another envelope.....The colors on them are more beautiful than in the photo.
My Rolodex fie is getting fat and happy.

Everything Dori makes is wonderful. Thanks, pal!
Susanna Lakner  (Planet Susannia)-- wonderful collage artist from Germany added these two beauties to my Rolodex Art Project. And a rumor has it I just might be meeting her here in San Francisco next month.

The flip side of them....

Margarete Minar
A new member of the SF Correspondence co-op and new pal sent me three Rolodex cards tucked inside this charming little pocket....

And, these two from Margarete have stamps on them -- of course! You can check out her blog on my sidebar.

Barcode Barb
Another co-op member sent me these two Rolo cards -- with a money theme -- so cool.
Barb has been into making books and various themes with a money/banking theme and when I saw those coin stamps at ScrapSF I knew I had to get them for her...

Erica Lang
Now this was fun -- Erica contacted me and asked if I would do a swap of Rolodex Art with her -- why not? And she sent me these three lovelies for the trade.
I love the couch with the stamp "paintings" above it and the real feather glued on --
thank you Erica!
Delwen Tatton
And just today -- from Australia -- this lovely mail arrived and I got to squeeze in one last photo to show you. I love those cartoon woman with the mail comments....and those great Aussie postmarks.

I have had some pretty pathetic no mail days but when I do get mail it is
so thanks to all of you lovelies who keep sending me such delightful mail and cheer up my mail box -- because I am kinda like those kids at the top of the post waiting to see what the mail man will bring.

I have other things to report on. Stamp bundles. Library Book Sale. Co-op meeting. Altered Passport Project.

But that's for another time.

Get any good mail lately?



  1. It's aways great to receive some art in the mail and you had some good mail days indeed, Pamela! You've received so many wonderful collages. Enjoy! :)
    xo Julia

    1. Thanks, Julia -- I have some great mail days and others -- like today -- i don't get a thing :(

  2. Your art is so colorful and special that I am intimated to send you mail art! Hahaha. I realize now that I cannot focus so much on the art and instead just focus on you, the recipient, and simply keeping in touch. With that said, your post will be filled again soon from your pal in the land of endless summer. xo

    1. Playa Paper-- please don't feel that way -- I love mail and yours was wonderful. Yes, think of me and don't be worried -- looking forward to getting something from you. Thank you.

  3. I was all set to gush and 'ooh and ahh' over the stitched security envelope, but then every single photo in the post made me want to comment individually. How could I possibly? So much eye candy here! I love your Rolodex project, and would love to fill my own with art from around the world...time to set up some trades, I guess! Your friends do beautiful work!! :-)

    1. Andria -- oh yes -- my friends do do beautiful work and I am lucky! My Rolodex is becoming a wonderful art piece. Did you see the Mail Me Some Art Rolodex swap? You could do that one -- I don't think the deadline passed. (I did it). I love Millicent's stitched envelope.....

    2. I haven't checked out the site in awhile...I definitely will!

  4. Those are some pretty cool Rolodex cards. Your cards for MMSA started off the swap in great style. I put a post card in the mail to you last week so it should arrive soon.

    1. cjsrq - yes -- i am lucky to have such artistic friends, you included. And I did get your wonderful postcard -- thank you! I hope the MMSA swap is a wonderful one -- I bet it will be.

  5. How incredibly impressive. I have wanted to find one of those red security envelopes forever. The person who sewed it was genius.

    You get the most colorful mail. I get bills and more bills. I like your mail better. Those rolodex cards are really piling up, aren't they? Wonderful art and great mail. Lucky you.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth -- yup, the rolo cards are piling up and looking good! And yes, Millicent can really sew up a pretty wonderful security envelope! Lucky me!!!

  6. love seeing your mail days! fun stuff!!

  7. Neat! I've got to post all the cool stuff I've gotten in the mail this past week, including your awesome mail you sent me :-)
