There is something about the unusualness of mail art that has always had me loving it. Recently, I've been both sending and receiving lots of mail art. What a treat! When my friend joy, from Connecticut was visiting she looked around my studio where lots of mail art is displayed and asked me, "Do you decorate your bills too, Lenna??" I thought for a minute and had to answer -yes, sometimes I do!!
Case in point: We had some landscaping done at our home on Tuesday. We bought this little house last September and the landscaping here really needed some help, more than we could do ourselves. We had bushes that were very "Northern" in style removed and instead put in a Foxtail palm tree, an orange Bird of Paradise, some Liriope, a few Croton, Purple Lantana, Dracenea, White Plumbago, Flax Lily, climbing Confederate Jasmine, a Bleeding Heart Vine and dwarf jasmime ground cover . . . wow does it look different! You can view many photos of the changes here -scroll through them quicker with the bar at the bottom if there are too many. So! I received the final bill today, and this is what I sent out:
|Donna Parker -Mexico|
|Val Tups - Germany|
|Leslie Sowden - California|
|JoAnn Reichert - Pennsylvania|
|Julie (Jewels) Oman - Michigan/Canada|
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks, all! ; ^ ) lenna - Now go decorate an envelope!!! xox
