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 £1 each so I snapped them up of course! 🙂

From a Friend

Standard

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

She loves portraits and she did one of me and sent it through the mail 🙂

Sending Love

Standard

I did some marbling with a friend and was inspired to make these mail art postcards. The marbling reminded me of a wall and so I made some graffitti-ish postcards with stenciling. I sent these to Nancy and Renee’ both live in USA.

I really liked them and so was inspired to make some art stamps to match! This mail art was sent to Iryna in Belarus. 🙂
