Unusual and Gorgeous mail

Standard

I had two lovely things put in my mailbox recently.

These beautiful wings from a sadly diseased bird, which I’ve been given to use for an art project

and this beautiful handmade wedding invitation.

I haven’t been invited to a wedding for a for ages, so what to wear πŸ™‚

Christmas Surprise

Standard

Here’s another thing I got through the post for Christmas, from my friend Susanne in Germany. This beautifully decorated story box with Christmas goodies inside.

The story was written on the outside and as I opened the box it continued on the inside.

What a charming thing to receive by mail, hard to photograph, but I did my best πŸ™‚ Thanks Susanne!

Mail Friends Are nice & fun

Standard

I regularly go to our local collectors market which is held once a week here in Fakenham. Last week I found this vintage stamp.

It had loose letters spelling this.

I decided I wanted to make an anagram andΒ use all the letters and spell something to do with my mail. I managed to use all but about four and came up with this! πŸ™‚

Here is lots of mail art going out to some lovely people.

Hare mail going to Iryna in Belarus, with ATC and art stamps.,

Yellow postcards using print, collage and Perle pens to Anastasiya in Russia and Susanne in Germany,

To Josephine in the Netherlands a postcard made from abstract painting and collage

also for Renee in USA

and to Nancy in the USA a hand made book with secret pockets, a postcard and some stickers.

I’m so glad to have sent all these! πŸ™‚

Pens

Standard

I was really happy to find these few treasures on a stall at our collectors market here in Fakenham. There is a collectors market every Thursday and I often have a walk around and see if anything catches my eye. The dip pens, the vintage rubber stamp and the paper knife were only Β£1 each so I snapped them up of course! πŸ™‚
