On the other hand, if a person goes to the trouble to make their correspondence visually appealing then I feel it is only right to share and celebrate it. This is a blog after all - pictures are the done thing apparently. :)
Ok, so I'll shut up now and show you the pretty pictures.
A beautiful package from Elle. Isn't that handmade paper just gorgeous? And do you see the little teeny weeny peg on the card on the left?
Gemma responded to the cheesy Sydney postcard I sent her with this wonderfully cheesy London postcard., I love it! It's not exactly mail art... more mail whimsy perhaps.
In my last letter, I sent Kandi a brochure from the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra (near where I live). It was basically a program of what they were showing for the next few months. Kandi took that and made this amazing card. Not only does it look incredible but the feel and texture of it is wonderful too - I wish you could take a turn holding it... it's that good.
She also included this spellbinding photograph.
I love this stylish paper and envelope that Kestrel sent. I believe it is from 16 Sparrows.
What a pretty envelope, and check out the 'Handle With Care' stamp - a first letter from Lisa in Texas.
Can you believe this postcard that Ria made? This was also a 'first'. I find it amazing when people I've not met yet send me such beautiful things.
This envelope from Rosemary just made me smile as soon as I pulled it out of my PO Box. Can you believe it's another 'first' letter?
Inside were two beautiful photo-cards (she took the pictures herself). She wrote on one of the cards and left the other blank for me to use. So thoughtful.
Without a doubt this cryptic missive from Trout is the most intriguing and original letter I've received to-date, and the envelope didn't disappoint either. I feel very much challenged about how to respond!
What's turned up in your mailbox lately?
Love from Kaz
