Wednesday Pick-Me-Up

It's Wednesday and the weekend glow has long since worn away and Friday still looks a long way off. So, how about a mid-week mail pick-me-up?

This letter comes to me from Jessica Armstrong, a new correspondent from Canada. She was kind enough to include a postcard and some Halloween stickers. Thanks!

Next is a letter from Lizbeth Meredith, my most regular and faithful correspondent. Check out her cool printed stationery. I'm wondering if she designed it herself or if it is available for us to steal online somewhere. Lizbeth?

Lastly, two postcards. The top one is from postcrossing...NL-433017. The ring on the middle finger reminds me of Carroll O'Connor as Archie Bunker. He wore rings on the middle fingers of both hands. For some reason, that used to annoy the heck out of me every time I would notice it on the show. I'm over it now and enjoy watching the reruns.

The other is a Picasso offering from my postcard pal, Chris Overstreet in Georgia. You're welcome for the latest card I sent and I'm looking for the extras that haven't been written upon. When they bubble to the top of the Crap Cauldron, I'll fish them out and send them on their merry way.

Like I really need more envelopes! But I just couldn't resist. These come all the way from Hong Kong through the generosity of Vicky Ng, aka Ms. Five. Check out her Envelope Adoption Programme for some beautiful goodies similar to those shown above!

A Mysterious Card

At first, I thought the card above must be one from the Postcrossing exchange. But, apparently not. There is no ID# and no return address. Ah, well...

This lovely card of Masquerade Procession on St. Isaac's Square, St. Petersburg comes with this cryptic message:

Hi, misterious person!
Here's a misterious card for you. :-)
Have a good day,

Why, thank you, Nataly. Have a good day yourself.

Here's A Mail Art First


Elizbeth Meredith sent me my very first frozen dinner mail art. Stouffer's Fettuccini Alfredo. Yum! What's the most unusual piece of mail art you've ever received?
